Photographer's Note

Today's Sunday Papagolfade is St.George's Minster of Dinkelsbühl, one of the most beautiful wide-aisled late Gothic churches in South Germany, built 1448-1499 to plans by Nikolaus Eseler but incorporating a much older, Romanesque, tower porch (1220-30). We see it from afar, along one of the four main streets of the town, Segringer strasse (the green building on the left side, "under" the church, is our hotel). During 16C, the church briefly became Protestant, as the majority of the town's burgers (citizens) have embraced the Protestant faith, but then has been forcefully given back to the Catholics. Because of that the church spire doesn't feature a weathercock, as it is common for Protestant churches; naturally, I had to respect the majority and incorporated a closely related species in the frame near the spire...
