Collegiate church, Salzburg

A lovely centralised pavement in this fine church by Fischer von Erlach. It reminded me of the Michelangelo pavement on the Capitoline; Fischer probably had seen it as I understand he was trained in Italy for some years. An art exhibition in the church enabled me to visit the galleries on the first floor - and take some unusual shots from there. I also met one of the artists, who proved to be a thoughtful and interesting guy.
