Römer

Römer

Frankfurt’s medieval city hall, the Roemer, pictured yesterday night, Feb.12. The main building was purchased by the city in the year 1405 and is still in use for various purposes.
(Took this shot at 1.5 sec, f 2.8, 200 asa with my old Sony Nex3 which I bought used and very cheap about two years ago. The 16mm 2.8 lens maybe isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer but it still produces usable pictures most of the time)

Old City Hall

Old City Hall

The half-timbered old city hall of Fulda, some 100 kms (60 mls) east of Frankfurt, behind stone statues of Saint Benedict (left) and Saint Boniface, Sep.19. While the city hall is almost 500 years old, the ancient-looking statues in front of it are a mere four years old.
