The 100 Masterworks of the Albertina
14 March 2014 - 29 June 2014

"The large-scale presentation unites the highlights of the collection, from Michelangelo through Rembrandt and Rubens to Caspar David Friedrich. The centrepiece of the Albertina, Dürer's famous "Young Hare", is now once again accessible to an interested public in the context of this exhibit after a decade-long period of grace"

Viennese Dogs and Schanigartens
Springtime in Vienna

Early Morning Annagasse

This lovely dog came along so suddenly,
I barely managed to capture a picture

One more sweet dog,
at Hafnersteig,
the other end of town

Early morning scene,
outdoors, in the shade,
chairs thoughtfully lined with sheepskin
to take away the morning chill
Café Diglas Schanigarten

Viennese Dogs
are trained to visit coffee houses
and know how to behave properly

Cherry Blossoms
Vienna in Spring

Saturday Morning
Cherry blossoms at their peak,
three weeks ago,
in a park in the 6th District

Cherry Blossoms and Mural
I love this small park,
an oasis only steps from busy streets
in the middle of Mariahilf District
