Have you read the book with the same title??ReplyDelete
I love the curvilinearity of it all . . .
They kepting coming up during the museum's tour. I have to go back one day to photograph them with a bit more time than shooting from the hip. ;-)
Yes, I have read that book! ;-)
More curves waiting behind the scenes, er, wings!
What beautiful chairs. I love how you have captured the curve. Such a photo opp.ReplyDelete
such an awesome way of showcasing some great pictures ..lovely :)ReplyDelete
You do come out with the most unusual items to photograph and end up doing a great job of it. Nice title too. :)ReplyDelete
You reminded me I HAVE to visit the Albertina Collection!!!
Love the Bentwood.
One picture of those chairs looks almost like a railing. Interesting pics as always.ReplyDelete
Such a cute posting!ReplyDelete
Love the subject matter!ReplyDelete
Oh wonderful, wonderful shots - I tried something similar the other day but only got one image I really liked! Such a brilliant eye you have, Merisi!ReplyDelete
I have to do more research,
but I know for a fact that those chairs were made for the museum.
Sometimes time pressure or not knowing what to blog about produce compositions that surprise even myself. ;-)
I guess having Vienna as a subject makes it easy to fetch eclectic pictures every now and then.
among many others (weren't you a Josef Hoffmann aficionada? Then add Backhausen to your list! *smile*).
Some of the chairs were lined up along the stair railings, pushed against study tables.

Thank you both!
Thank you! :-)
I have to discard pictures all the time, mostly due to the fact that I shot them under time constraints and/or bad light conditions (I only shoot with available light). Learning by doing, I guess. ;-)
