August in Gustav Klimt's Neighborhood
Morning in Leafy Hietzing

Summer mornings,
walking in Klimt's neighbourhood,

I hold my breath
trying to imagine

where Gustav Klimt harvested
the colours for his paintbox

Photographed the morning of 23 August 2013 in Hietzing, Vienna's 13th District,
a short walk from where Gustav Klimt had his studio the last six years of his life.

Viennese Dogs, Annatorte, Apple Strudel,
and Rubbish Bin on my Mind

Viennese Melange
Fächertorte, Coffee-Nut-Torte,

Demel, where else? ;-)

Early Saturday Morning
A dog's life, at Demel

Love the Storefront
What about the trash can?
Not so much. How 'bout you?

during a whirlwind Demel visit and a jog around some hidden corners
of the Inner City, with friends from the USA

Charred-Black Peppers and Golden Muskateller
Sometimes she tries to cook

Assortment of Organic Peppers
Charred black under the aegis of Merisi

Note to myself:
Next time, set a timer before pouring
yourself a glass of Tscheppe's Gelber Muskateller wine!

Viennese Moments

Walking to the tram stop

in the cool of the morning

Roses leaning on yellow

Squash blossom hiding behind flowers
