As pretty much all the cities in Europe Würzburg, dates to early early times, and of course a church gets built first :) Dating back to 748 AD. The Residence was built in the early 1700. It's a huge building, with beautiful gardens in the back. I was told not to take photos inside... but I'm a bad man that way... :) The art, sculptures, and fresco's by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, are absolutely astounding. It was a real pleasure to visit, and see that people took pride in their craft, and everything was done with care and passion. There was no room for "that'll do" thinking.
I knew I should have mounted my fisheye lens on the Fuji, when we entered the Residence. I didn't, and was a little intimidated when I was told that no pictures were allowed inside. I still tried to capture the beauty of the place with carefully held Fuji X-Pro1... hip shooting, just for my reference. Fuji is perfect for this type of shooting. It's almost completely silent, and doesn't attract attention. Since I was shooting rather blind, unfortunately most images did not make it, but there is still a few that shows the splendor of the place.
