Photographer's Note

This is the apothecary shot on the market square in Mainz. We past through this square about 2-3 hours earlier and it was full of vendors selling everything from fresh vegetables to live chickens. I was amazed how quickly the area was cleaned up to where you would have never know that the market had been there.
Mainz is a city in Germany and the capital of the German federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate. It was a politically important seat of the Prince-elector of Mainz under the Holy Roman Empire, and previously was a Roman fort city which commanded the west bank of the Rhine and formed part of the northernmost frontier of the Roman Empire.
Mainz is a city with over two thousand years of history. It is located on the river Rhine across from Wiesbaden, in the western part of the Frankfurt Rhine-Main Region; in the modern age, Frankfurt shares much of its regional importance.
