Fotoeins Friday in Oberammergau: Hansel & Gretel

In this month’s series, I portray images of some of the “Lüftlmalerei” (house murals) in the Bavarian alpine town of Oberammergau, 21 km northwest from Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

The story of Hansel and Gretel is painted at the children’s home at Ettaler Strasse 41. The painted mural is visible from the street, as I wasn’t interested in entering the private property without permission. The Hansel and Gretel story was first published in German by the Grimm Brothers in 1812 in their compilation “Kinder- und Hausmärchen” (Children’s and Household Tales).

I made the image above on 29 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/13, ISO1000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as

      Hi, Cornelia. Oberammergau was a delight to visit, at long last after many stops in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. All the best to you in 2021!
