  1. I don't think that horse approves of that fellow's shorts. Beautiful final shot!

    1. I had not even realized that he had stepped into my picture, until I looked at the downloaded images. ;-)

  2. The city looks so elegant, so beautifully sophisticated - the tourist just isn't up to scratch. Get him out! ;)

    1. It was a hot day, and walking is the best way to experience Vienna, you'd want to be comfortable. ;-)

  3. The link to the museum site was a rich experience of exhibits and history, even for one whose grasp of German is minimal. Anselm Kiefer is an artist new to me.........a fascinating display of his work. Thank you, Merisi!

    1. Dear DB,
      I corrected the link, it should now lead directly to the English language homepage of the Albertina. And you are right, the Albertina is a fascinating place to visit, for so many reasons!

  4. Merisi, as others have already written, the red tee shirt certainly stands out, along with those shorts.

    1. The shirt walked into my picture by accident, I had aimed at the horses. ;-)
