Church of Zurich

(Click into image to enlarge)

Zurich, 2015-02-20.

The Augustinerkirche, first build in 1270, the least known of the five churches in the old town of Zurich. Hidden in a side corner of the trendy Bahnhof street - shot over lunch time.

It is one of the few Catholic churches in the Protestant Zurich of Zwingli, however this one is not Roman Catholic but belongs to the Christian Catholic Church of Switzerland .

After the reformation it was used for 300 years as a mint, therefore the name of the Münzplatz next to it.

Taken with the trusty old Leica M3 on Tri-X 400 and the Summilux 50mm pre-A.. ah, bullshit.
Used the Sony A7 with Canon FDn 50mm f/1.4 ;-). Stopped down a bit and some grain added in Lightroom.
