I must be an exception. I love Monday mornings. The start of another week - YES!I do love life though :-)
I agree with britt-a. I love life. You never know what's going to happen next!Glad to see you got out of the forest safely!
BRITT-ARNHILD & LLAMA:I love every day, Monday's no exception, and I particularly enjoyed those quiet moments of today's early hours! Now I wonder how I managed to leave the impression that I didn't?
Monday morning and a good cup of coffee. What a great way to start the day and I love how you captured the day.
Thanks for reminding of life back in Europe. Glad you found me again by the way.I did actually find the best expresso I have had outside of France the other day!
We're so privileged to look through your eyes at this amazing city.Thank you, Merisi.
PHOTOWANNABE:Thank you, I thoroughly enjoyed that early morning. ;-)ANDRE VELOUX:You are welcome! (So we "swapped" continents?)DAVID MCMAHON:It is my pleasure and priviledge, David! :-)
Wow!!! I love these, escpecailly the dark chandalier with the curtain pulled to the side.
Absolutely beautiful Merisi!Do you get tired of hearing thisall the time?Please do us a photo BLURB.com book we can buy and look at quietly at leisure.
How elegant Vienna looks.Actually, i quite like Mondays too........but then i'm not gainfully employed.
yes I like Mondays and Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Thursdays and Fridays and Saturdays and Sundays!
What a delightful start to your week!
MY MELANGE:Oh yes, same here. And then I sat down at the window seat, and had the most delightful breakfast ever. ;-)PARIS BREAKFASTS:Merci beaucoup, cher Carol! :-)No, how could I? It nourishes my spirit, encourages me to keep blogging about this wonderful place I am calling home now.
SIMON:They are all wonderful, aren't they?It is Wednesday morning now, it rained hard all through the night,even now as I write this.My external hard drive with my photos is not working. Rain forecast into the weekend.Still, it is wonderful to be alive.
ELIZABETH:Elegant, inviting,calming. Irresistibe. All of the above,and more! :-)MAALIE:Yes! Almost as good as tea with the Queen, I guess. ;-)
I love these little glimpses, snapshots into lives, nooks and corners. Delicious! Now all I need is a hot chocolate and a slice of apfelstrudel.
Hey, it's a Wednesday here too.;)I loved the first picture best. Classic!
Congratulations. It's another POTD Award for you at David's. Well done Merisi! :D
Vienna just seems to have this lovely elegance. A young friend of ours is in Europe for 3 weeks and is visiting Vienna. I am anxious to hear about it his stay there.Eileen (passions to pastry)www.livingtastefully.com
I LOVED this on Monday...But now it is nearly SUNDAY!One day you will decide to shoot again...But will it be PALM SUNDAY?Or NEXT Monday?Get out that cameraYou vagabunday!With a little help from http://www.rhymezone.com
ABSOLUTE VANILLA:Make sure that you drink hot chocolate at Demel's! They slowly heat their in-house made chocolate for hours (many, can't divulge more), simmering it to heavenly perfection.INDICASPECIES:Thank you (and David too!). :-)There are two of these caryatids, one each at Naglergasse and at Bognergasse, and I have to look up and smile at them every time I walk by.
EILEEN:I agree, Vienna does have this special kind of elegance, "with a sweet languor about it," as Theodore Dreiser may have called it.
PARIS BREAKFAST:I know, I know! Would you believe that I can't get my external hard drive, with my photo archive, going? Sweet horror. :-(
Caryatids. That's such an interesting term that I looked up to check on the exact meaning. Fabulous.:)
Caryatid: a draped female figure supporting an entablature - plural cary·at·ids or cary·at·ides Etymology:Latin caryatides, plural, from Greek karyatides priestesses of Artemis at Caryae, caryatids, from Karyai Caryae in LaconiaDate: 1563(Quoted from Merriam Webster's Online Dictionary)INDICASPECIES:It's also a beautiful word, isn't it? The supporting columns in the form of male figures, - atlantes -, may be better known than their female counterparts. The British Museum in London houses probably the most famous caryatid, taken from the Acropolis in Athens, Greece, by Lord Elgin.
that's a great photo story... no words needed.thank you for looking in on me :)
Love that second last photo!
Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
