COLOGNE, GERMANY: THE CATHEDRAL, 1248.

Sitting on the steps of Cologne Cathedral, watching all of the hustle and bustle of people going off to work or school. The cathedral cuts an imposing figure behind me, as though people walking towards me will get devoured by its shadows. I feel protected.  ~ me
