  3. Lovely skies!

    I find ginger ale for me depends on the brand- some I can go for, others aren't to my taste.

    1. Thank you, William!
      Almdudler probably has more (Alpine) herbs than ginger, and it less sugary than most soft drinks.

  4. Merisi, I also like looking up to see how sky gets reflected in buildings and the odd mergers that can appear. Would these be optical illusions or optical realities? I'm not sure.

    1. Good question, Francis! Isn't it all in the eye of the beholder? ;-)

  5. Great capture of those strange "cut-away" buildings, an area rich with perspectives. Rather heart-warming too to see the Almdudler sign, is that Ottakringer yellow beneath? A warm touch of Autumn as life turns to Winter.

    1. Thank you, Kurwenal!
      I think the Ottakringer yellow has more green undertones, if I am not mistaken. ;-)

  8. The sky compliments the architecture nicely!

  9. Or maybe optical delusions. I say that because I tend to be delusional
