Munich: Arches at the Opera by Kasia-D

Munich: Arches at the Opera by 

Captured through the arches of the Bavarian State Opera. I liked the view of these kids playing. It seemed old fashioned somehow.

The row of lanterns and those two further lanterns on the left and in the distance, somehow add a touch of olde worlde feel.

The scene in the background is actually a temporary backdrop in front of the Munich Residence and not the actual building. Nowadays they hang a copy of the original in front of the facade during renovation work which is currently taking place! You can spot some scaffolding at the top. Great deal for photographers!

Location: Munich, Bavaria, Germany
