Thanks for taking be along your walk to look for Wien door.
I knew the door posts of Vienna would be different and special.ReplyDelete
I just left a message, but don't see it. Sorry if you now getting two! Thank you for sharing your works of art! Your photographs of Vienna are spectacular. Each unique and special in it's own rite. One thing I'm beginning to gather about your city is it is pristine. Very clean and well kept.
Thank you for all you shared here. It's been great fun to see so many of your doors hanging in one post!
Marvellous selection - the white shots particularly are arresting!ReplyDelete
So glad I found your blog this way.
The blue doors in particular, I find breathtaking. And the iron work on the St. Michael's gate is amazing.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful city.
I'll be back for a visit I'm sure.
Do you know how lucky you are to live in such a beautiful city? Love your photographs!ReplyDelete
beautiful. but this one 'Hohe Brücke' is unbelievable, i have never seen a door like that before. what an amazing city that you live in!ReplyDelete
What amazing portals! I love the predominate white, the first photo is very inspiring! Thank you for these glimpses into your world... I long to visit Vienna, and so appreciate this opportunity to step through these doors with you!ReplyDelete
p.s. my photo is of a door in the village below the castle... a simple portal, and not the grand entrance!!!
You are welcome! :-)
You wouldn't believe how hard it was to select only a few, I tried not to show only the "grand" ones. ;-)
Thank you, you are very kind!

and I agree about the white shots! ;-)
Welcome and thank you! :-)
I try to be really appreciative of my surroundings. I still have to pinch myself at times when walking down one of those streets, to make sure I am not dreaming. ;-)
It is right at the edge of a real bridge, which crosses a street running deep below.
The first one is my favorite, it is one of those "finds" you encounter so often in Vienna when turning a corner or slipping into a passageway. It opens into a courtyard which is enclosed by some of the oldest buildings in Vienna, a mere stone's throw from St. Stephan's cathedral, yet upon entering you leave all city noises outside and it becomes so quiet as if you were far away in a different century in a country village.
A very special collection of doors - its been 25 years since I was in Vienna, you certainly have made me want to return!ReplyDelete
Wednesday ~~ doors ~~ -smile- Lovely.ReplyDelete
I love your viennese doors but I paricularly love the morrocan viennese one . You are wondering which one it is ???ReplyDelete
This has been such a WONDERFUL! world tour!ReplyDelete
Your Viennese tour of doors is fantastic...loving the Green iron doors and the Passage, going deeper and deeper and deeper...
Wow. You make me miss Europe so much (I lived in Paris on two occasions- where I'd walk for hours and hours). Wonderful work with todays assignment!!!!ReplyDelete

Vienna's architecture is so fabulous....thank you for sharing all of these Viennese doors...they are unique and lovely and so....Viennese!ReplyDelete
What strikes me - apart from the beauty - is how the beauty is enhanced by how clean they all are.ReplyDelete
i cannot pickReplyDelete
a favorite door here
but the children playing in front
of the elementary school
does touch my heart.
think of walking
through those doors to classes!
i am so glad you caught
the perfect moment ~~~~SNAP~~~
Thank you for this wonderful tour of Viennese doors. It would be difficult to chose a favorite, but I did like the silhouette of Empress Elizabeth on the courtyard balcony.ReplyDelete
So many wonderful doors! I loved them all, but especially the door at recess.ReplyDelete
we visited Vienna last Christmas, it was perhaps the most beautiful place I've ever been. I've never seen a place so clean and pristine. Your doors bring back memories...ReplyDelete
Beautiful and subtle sense of color. I think I need to stop back here frequently.ReplyDelete
Lucky for me that the Doors of the World have opened to show me your work and world. I'm enjoying this trip around the globe and meeting wonderful artists like you. I hope one day to see the doors of Vienna in real life: this was a wonderful taster. I love the courtyard door. Best wishes.ReplyDelete
I tried to send you a comment before - but it did not seem to 'take'
How cool and elegant your Vienese doors are.And, as others have noted - how clean.
I have been looking forward to them for ages.
I always love nmy visits with you.
My married name is Schmid - so I got a kick out of the "Schmeidgass"
Fantastique! Thanks for visiting my Charleston doors! Vienna, though! Sigh!!!! THank YOU for these lovely photos! I feel like I am there! A lot of doors here are very European.ReplyDelete
Thanks for your lovely comments, I Love your pics too...
Especially the green iron doors, but the first one, is so ethereal, pure and striking, and the rest, I would love to see your Vienna one day...
what a beauty ! I've been to Vienna only once as a kid and would love to go back. Its architecture is so elegant. Even the iron door looks great!
Am so glad Elizabeth put up this event...
I'll visit more often. Thanks for sharing your pictures.
Oohhh...these are some of the most elegant doors. I love them all and the colours!! So bold and bright and clean! What a beautiful city!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for leaving a comment on my blog. I have no idea how you found me but I'm so glad I clicked over to see your city's doors. I very much enjoyed looking at all your images as both Wien and Venedig are among my favorites. Thanks so very much for sharing!
Such wonderful photos of doors! I really like the green iron door, but there are so many which are beautiful that it is hard to determine which one I would choose to go through first. Thanks for sharing these with us!ReplyDelete
I love all the doors!ReplyDelete
I thank you all for your kind and generous comments. I am looking forward to visit each of you over the coming days.
Thank you again and best wishes,
Cartier-Bresson is giving you a kiss on each cheek right now!ReplyDelete
So beautiful and interesting! Much dreams behind the doors...ReplyDelete
I like this juxtaposed with the doors of Venice. Very nice, and very inspirational. I can see transforming some of these forms into another medium.ReplyDelete
Stunning!!!! Just stunning!!!ReplyDelete
