photoblog image Karl der Grosse

Karl der Grosse

A mention of Aachen (Aken in Dutch and Aix la Chapelle in French) is hardly considered complete without Karl der Grosse. This is a statue of Karl der Grosse/ Charlemagne/ Karolus Magnus outside the City Hall of Aachen. The City Hall (almost tumbling) is seen on the left partially. In the hands of Karl der Grosse are imperial regalia: a sceptre and an orb.

Do you know how old that water feature is, Ayush?
Ayush Basu: I could not find that out, Ray. But the statue is a replica and the original has been shifted inside the City Hall.

Oh, this is a fine place -I see the City Hall in restauro - now without any scaffolding, for I have been in Aachen two weeks ago. I love the clouds.
Ayush Basu: Oh yes I am sure of that. I was in Aachen in March earlier this year. I agree this is a fine place. I love fluffy white clouds, Philine!
Taking centre stage. Nicely composed Ayush
Ayush Basu: Thank you Janet, for your kind comment.

Jolie fontaine et jolie histoire.
Ayush Basu: Merci. On me dit que la statue est une réplique et l'original a été déplacé à  l'intérieur de City Hall.
[I am told that the statue is a replica and the original has been shifted inside the City Hall.]
it's a wonderful bronze sculpture in the fountain Ayush... you have captured quite a bit of the city around it....petersmile
Ayush Basu: I am pleased you like this view. I had some doubts about whether to include the city hall with such distortion, Peter.
He looks like the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz, Ayush. grin
Ayush Basu: Good point, Ginnie. Now that you mention it.....
niiiiiiice, will you give me your camera for Christmas? smile
Ayush Basu: You'll have to come and get it, Elaine grin

I lovely perspective focusing on the statue in the middle, but drawing the eye out to buildings and people that surround it.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for that thoughtful comment, CP.
