Dresden Kreuzkirche Church of the Holy Cross (bw)

The Kreuzkirche, or Church of the Holy Cross, is one of the major landmarks in the centre of Dresden. Its tower survived the bombing in 1945, though the interior was extensively damaged. Behind it is the tower of the Dresdener Rathaus or Dresden Town Hall.

The blackened stone retains an impression of a darker past. The effect is enhanced in monochrome.
