Pictures pictures everywhere
There are many churches in Metz, and these churches have may details. Gargoyles, horses, pigs, demons and even the dog-dragon thing from never-ending story make up the intricate façades of these buildings. Some statues have what appeas to be interesting symbolism, and one ruin/tower/church thing even has mentioned on its info-panel that it was built with some type of stone just to add a subtle political message to it. If that's the case I can only begin to wonder at what the real meaning of some of these things are.
|Should they be standing on those?|
|Yes that's a pig|
|And those are a horse and a cow|
|Standing on people|
|I didn't know that phoenixes were churchly|
|A dragon and people holding faces|
|Faces faces everywhere|
There's a mill, and the door is locked. That's about it really, not much else to add, but it does have a nice little are next to it with ivy infested walls and an arch.
|Of course there were swans in the way|
|A wild mill appears|
|But getting to it isn't that easy|
|Inspiring almost, but not quite|
If someone would tell you that the branches of trees are cut in a straight line, you'd call them a liar, if they'd show you a picture you'd say it's photoshopped. But it's real, and a bit odd really.
|The centre being renovate|
|The joy of not being limited to 30 or so photos|
|I can't recall exactly where this was, but I could probably find it again|
|How to properly blend old and new|
|Urban art done right|
