Benches in the Cathedral in Cologne

I created this image inside the Cathedral in Cologne, Germany. The Cathedral once was the largest building that the world has seen. Today it is still the fourth tallest church on earth.

First I photographed the usual “stuff” that other people also photographed. Then I took a moment of silence and started looking for subjects that people normally overlook. I started working on photographing the benches. People were sitting on them. The are beautifully carved but uncomfortable. I wondered how many people have sitten on them and why did they come here. Benches can be interesting to meditate and definitely worth being photographed.
