May 26: Bamberg morning
The next morning it was time to depart from Bamberg, but I had time for one more hour of perambulation to seek out places I'd previously missed.
Once again across the canal to Inselstadt, this time on the Kettenbrücke further downstream, hence the upstream view of the Luitpoldbrücke and the Erlöserkirche.
This construction looks almost like the start of another bridge.
Here's Maximiliansplatz, a much more orthogonal square than most in Bamberg, which makes me think it's of post-medieval vintage.
Just beyond the Platz on the elongated Grüner Markt square sits the late-17th-century Martinskirche, originally a Jesuit church, a church of many arcs. I checked it out.
A curious angle in the vestibule.
The front window and a soft morning sunbeam.
Sharp and smooth.
The explosively composed altar.
Waaait a minute!
A deluxe confessional.
Rothkoesque light washes in the northeast reaches of the church.
Sun painting a lovely intersection of curves.
More round-arched windows, in the southwest wall.
Across from the west end of Jesuitenstraße: that's a ton of roof for a pretty small amount of building.
This street is called, and is located, An der Universität.
A fun scramble of wall elements. That doorknob looks somewhat less than fully practical.
Old-school vs. new-school (at least judging by their surfaces) half-timbered sheds.
A concentrated little blast of high-tech architecture.
A clearer view of the Luitpoldbrücke's structure.
Wow, the Kettenbrücke's structure is cool too! I think I prefer it actually, because it's so elegantly minimal.
A shadow of me on the Luitpoldbrücke snapping my shadow on the Luitpoldbrücke.
Getting ready to check out from the hotel.
Another look through the hallway window, to the north, sans filtering this time. To the right is the foreshortened pile of roofs at the backs of buildings along Heiliggrabstraße.
The slightly sparser view over to the west.
