Last Call for Arches

The header image leads us through an arch to the next month with kind of converging lines.

I culled my pictures from September and found a few more arches that I don’t think I have posted yet.

On a ride to Nymphenburg Palace – I seldom ride to Munich these days but there is certainly a lot more architecture with arches there.
The Bakers Chapel or St. Joseph Forest Chapel in Gräfelfing – The chapel, built in 1921/22, is opposite the former bakers rest home and is a protected monument.
On the roadside near the Bakers Chapel is this little water spout with my mascot, the snail. I think we can find an arch there somehow.

I'm a US born ex-pat, having lived most of my adult life in Munich, Germany. Cycling and photography are my favorite things.

    Alright, that Nymphenburg Palace sets a new record for “Most Arches in a Single Structure.”

    I like the snail waterspout — and the palace does have a lot of arches!
    I wonder if the construction crew got tired of building them?
    (And then the architect mentioned . . . . don’t forget about the ‘other’ side.) 😉

    I had to look that palace up…what a huge place. Said they built it to celebrate the birth of an heir. I was lucky to have the money to buy a decent baby bed. I wouldn’t go downtown now even in an automobile. In fact, due to all the chaos, they’ve blocked a huge section of downtown off to automobiles this week. We’re still on 9PM curfew. Nice pictures…as always!
