Dreary Dreamy Dresden

We had our first trip by train to Dresden Germany this winter.

The city is home to the artist group Die Brücke, and world famous porcelain.

Even though the cold wind was fierce,

the architecture in the city was amazing,

with the dreary skies and shifting sunlight creating dramatic views.

The famous Frauenkirche bombed by the Allies in WWII is now re-constructed or replicated from scratch,

except for this one section that remained standing as a ruin for 50 years.

Formerly in East Germany, and under a socialist government, many massive Communist structures occupy the town center, built after the US destroyed the city.

Until we come back again, auf wiedersehen, Dresden...
