My photos for this challenge Silhouette are two very different ones. The first is a stormy scene over Glengarriff in West Cork, judging by the dark clouds, the heavens were about to open, but we were safely indoors sipping a coffee and enjoying some home cooked food!

The weekly photo challenge has moved from Fridays to Wednesdays, so here goes for this week’s Shadow.
These photos were taken at sunset in the town of Mainz in Germany, the tower with scaffolding is the main cathedral, which is about 1200 years old, and still standing!

This is the Ginnheim Tower in Frankfurt, early one winter’s morning, taken from my bedroom windown when I visited my daughter and her family in early December. What a nice view to wake up to! This tower is officially known as the Europaturm, and is a communication tower in the Ginnheim area, and also known as the Ginnheim Asparagus!

These are the very impressive doors of the Romanesque Cathedral in Mainz, Germany. This building is over 1000 years old, and was built around the year 990, in the 10th century. It’s hard to cast my mind back that far, and hard to believe that this building is still standing and being used as a Cathedral, as originally intended. The doors are very tall, made of bronze, and date back to the 11th century.
Here are some views of the outside of the Cathedral, there was some repair work and scaffolding going on when we visited, but it is a very large and interesting building, as you can see.

This week again I have a little something from our trip to Mainz in Germany – the sculptors were very busy with this one that we came across in one of the main squares, while we kept warm with some Gluhwien This sculpture is called the carnival sculpture, or The Tower of Fools
Another interesting sculpture we came across is this modern art piece in the Town Square, which my grandchildren enjoyed playing around.
