  3. How delightful these photos are, Merisi - a very elegant hallowe'en, although not particularly Big Esther's derriere!

  8. What a fascinating place with so much to photograph. And a wonderful combination of colors. The entrance looks so enchanting with its welcoming golden-lit interior. Looks like Big Esther has changed her color too, from a few years ago (a la your previous post).

    1. Yes, you are right about Big Esther. During my first years in Vienna, I used to pass by the villa several times a week and very often, I stopped to admire the villa. It changes appearance with the light of day and the seasons, but always magnificent. I had not stopped by for several months, one fine day, Big Esther looked different. I rather liked her previous appearance.

  14. I hardly know what to say about Big Esther -- but she reminds me of one of my characters -- Big Lavinia.
    And what a house!
