Captured: Kölner Dom

Kölner Dom

I spent the summer of 1984 in Germany on an exchange program with other Indiana high-school students. We spent a lot of our time in intensive language instruction, but we also traveled the country. One of our trips was to Cologne, where we toured the great Cologne Cathedral. The locals call it der Kölner Dom.

The cathedral is enormous; I couldn’t back up far enough to get it all in the viewfinder of my crappy little 110 camera. So I took a series of shots, left to right, bottom to top, hoping I had lined them up well and had captured it all. The cathedral is wider than this, but the shots lined up well enough. 29 years later, I can properly stitch them together with software.

I’ve written about my trip to Germany before, here and here.

    Yay! I’ve been waiting to see this shot, Jim! It’s just as — ahem — monumental as I’d expected. Well done!

      Yeah, it’s not bad for a 16-year-old who didn’t know what he was doing!
