I made my camera ready and waited to see what happened. After maybe 10 seconds this woman and her daughter appeared on a tandem bike. I don't claim that they match the buildings exactly, but I decided this was as good as I could hope for.

It's rather typical that no matter how interesting and colorful an event may be, there will always be those who find their mobile phones more interesting.

This one was erected in 1723 as a memorial to the plague that hit the city in 1710–1711. The Virgin Mary at the top is joined further down with sculptures of a number of saints and angels.
