  2. This bus station looks like a place somewhere in a small town! Surprise to see something like this in the middle of Vienna. :D

  3. A very amusing photo. I do wonder what the rationale is for putting the machine right there.

    1. Art installation? Just a hunch, could be some practical joke as well.

    1. I was up at the church, on top of the hill (Kirche am Steinhof, Art Nouveau by Otto Wagner), that was worth a free pass. ;-)

    1. Quite possible this is part of an art installation.
      I could imagine a few themes around it. ;-)

  12. If your hair colour matches the scales you get to ride free? ;-)

  14. Coincidence that the woman closes to the weighing machine ... has the same coloured hair as the machine?!?!?!?!?!?
    Spooky. But a cute photo nevertheless.

    1. Yes, I captured exactly what was there. Exactly.

      I first notices the light, the sun was quit low already, half past 5 PM, when I realized what was in the scene, I took all my courage and went over and asked if they'd mind being photographed and possibly published. As soon as I had captured the scene, a gentleman approached, sat down, and was willing to be in the picture too. It's another great picture, but I decided to used the first one.

      The location is unique, too. The place has not always reflected such bright, happy colors, full of life.
