Catching the Tail End of the Holidays in Munich

Munich, 2014

Munich, 2014

The lines of buildings, blunted inferiorly by the curves of human heads; roofs, some pointed, some flat; tourists and locals; darkness and light. In this holiday scene at the Marienplatz, multiple elements converge and complement.


We arrived in Munich too late to catch the Christmas market, but there was still plenty of prevailing holiday cheer. I especially loved strolling down the Neuhauser Strasse at night, soaking in the atmosphere created by festive lights and cheerful crowds. There was so much that was unfamiliar — the cold, the near-bare trees, the coats and boots and beanies and gloves — and yet it seemed like I had happily fallen into a familiar soup.
