Munich Monopteros

I think that the use of the PocketMonet iPhone app works well with this photo. First, the scene itself lends itself well to a painting effect — it looks like the sort of thing that a master painter might choose as the subject for one of their works. Second, because I had to crop in so much, the quality of this image isn't as good as I'd like and the PocketMonet app obscures that.

The Monopteros in the middle of Munich's English Garden sits isolated on the side of a hill with beautiful greenery around it. This makes the Monopteros a fantastic subject for photography; unfortunately, I didn't fully comprehend that at the time I took the original photo here — I was taking photos of things, not looking for interesting, artistic images.

So I only got a couple of shots of the Monopteros at all, and even for this one I had to crop way in on the original photograph. If I were to go back to Munich I'd want to spend an entire day in the English Garden alone, the photography opportunities there are so good.

A monopteros is type of Greek architecture where a single circular colonnade supports a domed roof but without any walls. This Monopteros in Munich's English Garden was designed by Leo von Klenze who used leftover building material from the nearby Munich Residenz (Royal Residence).
