It has been nearly 4 months since I published anything in this blog. When I started this blog, I wanted to keep posting every 1-2 days and so such a long absence was definitely not the plan. Unfortunately blogging, like a lot of different habits, tends to lose momentum if you don’t do it even for a short while and this was what happened to me.
So what makes me start again? Out of my expectation, I have got a couple of new followers on my Twitter account associated with this blog recently. I don’t know where they come from and how they discover this “dormant” blog. Yet these couple of new friends do give me some momentum to do it again.
Let’s get back to the picture. It’s the Antiquarium in Residenz, a former residence of Bavarian kings in the heart of Munich. It features loads of antique collection of the previous royal residents and the walls and ceilings are covered with numerous paintings in the Renaissance period.
The view of this picture is kind of the “standard” view that you can find in postcards, pamphlets or tour books. Of course the main difficulty of taking this picture is to wait for it to be free of the crowds. We were lucky because it wasn’t too crowded when we visited. Still if you looked closer to the picture, there were actually 2 persons at the left hand side of the far end. I purposely included them in the picture because they served as the reference to illustrate the scale of the hall without affecting the composition too much.
