Angels, Doors, and a Traveler
Vienna on a Winter Afternoon

Light Slate-Grey Door
Also the color of Vienna's winter sky
I spot a gaggle of angels, a birdhouse,
and a light blue bird

Traditional Chartreuse
Double doors and shutter
As much as a 50mm lens can capture
in a narrow cobblestoned street

Traffic on a late January afternoon

Mandarin Duck Tales from the Vienna Woods
Waiting for Sunrise in the Morning Fog

Mandarin Ducks waiting for Sunrise
The sun rose hiding
in a shroud of thick Danubian fog

"All morning the
Morning has been blackening"
