Christmastime in Vienna
Around Town

Brick Wall and Green Fence
I found this inviting façade
near the former Ankerbrot Factory -
now a thriving arts center with galleries
showing contemporary photo art
10th District

White Christmas Trees
I happened upon this scene
one fine morning, probably a backdrop
for a stage being built for the Christmas village

Christ Child with Gifts
Antique Christmas ornament
Most Austrian children still hope for gifts from Baby Jesus
instead of the heavy-set Coca Cola guy, but he's making
inroads into Austrian Kinderstuben

After Sunset
Christmas lights over Mariahilfer Strasse,
one of Vienna's busiest shopping streets
6th District

  4. We just put up our Christmas tree tonight, so my ornament appreciation is heightened right now. What a beautiful antique Christmas ornament in the photo above! Has your holiday season been snow-free like ours has been in Minnesota?

  5. Your first photo looks too good to be true. Amazing what effects paint can have.

  6. In Poland St. Nicholas brings gifts.
    Warsaw is also getting it's Christmas bling on. Happy Sunday!

  7. Our little town has it's lights up and they are very nice. I do enjoy it a lot.
