How do you capture an image without any tourists involved when in a touristy attraction?  That must be what a koan is; something to meditate on that doesn’t have an easy or obvious answer.  Or a question like “how many chucks does a woodchuck chuck”?  Have you ever seen a woodchuck?  Well, I saw no woodchucks, though there were plenty of tourists, here at the Kolner Dom, or Cologne Cathedral, in Cologne Germany.  What a place to explore!  A massive structure and amazing place to wander inside of.  How does one capture an image without the everpresent fellow tourist?  It takes a lot of patience and waiting and a bit of luck. cologne-cathedral-priests--1

In the spring of  ’08 we were outside walking around and enjoying the evening ambiance of Cologne, Germany.  Now the Cologne cathedral is almost always in sight of wherever you go there, but on this evening I noticed that if I found the right place I could position the moon directly between the 2 spires.   Luckily, there was a small grassy knoll with an unencumbered opening looking directly to the cathedral.  Now in those days I was not traveling with my tripod so I just set my camera down on the grass, found something to prop it up just a bit and fired away.
