  1. These are interesting photographs. I like them.720 pixels

  2. Lovely pictures, Merisi.

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. I love that color of dome...its so much resembles turq if somebody made out of Turquoise stone with crack lines...and simple awesome to get that reflection in the window....!

  4. The photos that you are displaying here, speak of a person appreciative of and attuned to the finest aspects of architecture.
    Might I suggest to you, Merisi, one of the best books I read last year?
    It's called The Architecture of Happiness, by Alain de Botton.
    So superb.
    I mean, so RICHLY wonderful.
    So rife with beautiful [B & W] photography... so wonderfully written.
    I unreservedly reccommend that you read him.
    Not to mention W.G. Sebald.
    You would love him. I know it, viewing the angle of your photos.

  5. There is nothing quite like a well-crafted window. Looking at them is addicting. I love the way you've captured them here.
    I found your blog via Colouring Outside the Lines.
    I've been to Vienna a couple of times and the architecture is what would bring me back again. O.K...the chocolate would too.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
