Why I Love The Internet (and why Morrissey was correct*)
Back in April 2010 when I visited Germany for the first time I took this photograph of a church in Leipzig. When I returned home and uploaded the photographs to my Flickr account I put the title 'unknown church' underneath it, simply because at the time I didn't know what it was called and it was on the other side of a building site which I couldn't get round or across..
I thought no more of that photograph until last week when I received an e-mail from a fellow photographer who is a member of a website called The Churches of Britain and Ireland who informed me that he had identified my unknown church as the Evangelisch-Reformierte Kirche which was built in 1899.
My faith in the good that the Interweb can do was instantly resolved, proving how shallow I am!
