I wanted to see a famous painting.
well - it's more than just a painting - it's the Isenheim Altarpiece and it's in Colmar.
so I went to Colmar, found the Altarpiece and was suitably impressed.
but sometimes - on a journey - it's the things that you don't expect to see, that make the trip memorable
And opportunities for photographs arise - which would never have happened - if I hadn't made the trip to see the Isenheim . . .
picture : man on his mobile - inside a concrete nautilus.
second picture : the Isenheim Altarpiece - it was every bit as spectacular as I'd expected.
a masterpiece of the middle ages. Well worth the trip.
And Colmar itself - what a super pretty little town !
If I hadn't gone in search of that painting - I would never have discovered this place !
