Good Morning, Vienna
Summer in the City


Early Morning Lesson
Vienna's buildings have more Halbstockwerke -
intermediate floors, Mezzanin around here -
than anticipated, always


In the Early Morning Breeze
What if I had taken this cab
instead of public transport?


Under the Viennese Sun
Burning hot at 8 AM already


Subtropical Vienna
Weather's been bordering on the tropics lately,
daily thunderstorms as soon as the bell strikes six included


The Joys of Arriving Early
Bending down to smell the flowers
