German Photographs (cont. 1)

An additional pair of photographs made during our stay in Göettingen of the Kaiserdom in Köningslutter were pieced together to display a fuller view of the ceiling leading down to the alter and the stained glass windows. Presently the Kaiserdom was just restored and you can compare with my photographs made in 1972-73 with the present restored version by going to the Kaiserdom site (

The restoration of the Dom is really remarkable and worth taking a look at. I made other photographs of the Dom using my 4x5 view camera, these were of the Kreuzgang and are included on my web page under the "Heritage" portfolio. Other photos were made of the outside decoration but are not on the web (photographs of the restored outside decoration are also shown in the Kaiserdom web site). A comparison of these would be of interest even though they are not of the same exact area.
