Such beautiful glittery wonders. I would imagine all of Vienna being adorned with glitter at this time of year!
Love that web of lights, and the sugar rose.
That camerawork! Standing applause.
I am trying to think of what it is about your blog posts that is so appealing..you are a wonderful photographer and use prose so beautifully..but it is more than that. Maybe it is your city..so charming and traditional....Maybe all these things come together so well...
Dear Celestial, Charles Gramlich, David and RamblingWoods,thank you for your kind words from the bottom of my heart, I appreciate them immensely.My your heart be filled with Christmas spirit,yoursMerisi
How beautiful...the little figurines really caught my eye but the church in the snow storm struck my fancy!hugsSandi
Wonderful holiday moments captured today! Christmas store displays make me feel like a kid again!!All kinds of possibilities for Christmas morning. The Ring Hotel shot looks so mystical. You and your camera are quite a team!! It snowed in Dallas yesterday! It was just a light dusting but everything was still and quiet. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!! :DHappy Holidays, Merisi!~Allie
your profile pic made me come running right over. this last pic, the tree, simply gorgeous. And I have always wanted to see Italy - someday.......
I love how you paint such a pretty picture with both your words and photos. Sometimes I feel such serenity and other times so much energy. You really help me to apprectiate even the ordinary.
Oh, gorgeous!!!! I'm so glad to have found your blog. Just delicious.
Ah, Merisi. I knew your Christmas pictures would be something special.All the joys of Christmas to you.
These all look as if they were fashioned out of fairy dust. Charming! They remind me of things my grandmother used to have.
You asked about my duck photos. The pond is right by my yard. I can sit and see the ducks a few feet away. They get used to me being there and I can take many photos that way. Thank you for your kind comments, as they are very much appreciated
Your comments really touch my heart.I am sorry that there are lately way too many days where all I manage to do is put a new post up, but do not find the time to answer your comments and visit you at the same time. I do appreciate your visits and comments, each and every single one, and I am looking forward to see you at your own place whenever possible.
thank you for your comment - I am adding you to my blogroll. no i have not read Leach but you can bet I will look up the books. thanks for the advice, we all need help now and then. HAVE A GREAT DAY OR NIGHT, what time is it there anyway? I am in Texas.
Pretty photos to accent the coming of Christmas. Wonderful.
All that glitters...in some cases, is better than gold!Merisi, congratulations on David's POTD mention, and cheers of the season.:)
How absolutely wonderful! Your photos are stunning. Thanks so much for sharing them.A couple of years ago we spent Christmas in Vienna and I've never felt closer to a fairytale in all my life! (Almost all my Christmases have been in Africa....so you can imagine my wide-eyed wonder at the beauty of it all.)
You have encapsulated the title beautifully Merisi, I adore veiwing the delights your eye captures. Thank you for putting a little Christmas spirit into this old Grouch here.ps. Well done on the shout out at David's post of the day, too!
How beautiful, Merisi! The cabbage rose and the hotel through the snow and lights caught my attention. They look so romantic! Congratulations on earning David's Post of the Day! Peace!Lee
Great pics! I wandered over from David McMahon's when I saw your post's title. That's what I was going to use, but went with a different title at the last moment. I suggested an entirely different perspective on glitter.I really do love these photographs! Happy holidays, Merisi.
As always, Merisi, your shots are filed with sweetness (this time, in most instances, literally!)
Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
