Bonsoir Merisi !ReplyDelete
Tes photos sont toujours aussi jolies, et fantaissites...
Romy ressemble beaucoup à la Sissi que je T'ai envoyée...
Just what I needed! That was a nice afternoon walk -- vielen dank!ReplyDelete
Laughing at the idea of 3/4 Takt and the beauty of recycle!ReplyDelete
I need some of that in the last picture and then I will probably need to take a walk in the second last picture. Now I just have to work out how to get into your wonderful photos!ReplyDelete
Wish I was out riding that bike right now.ReplyDelete
I love taking strolls through your world. That last photo has the best light--it's a Paris Breakfast painting, I think, waiting to happen. ;))ReplyDelete
have you seen the Sisi-Movies with Romy? She made a few of them, when she was very young.
gern geschehen! :-)
Johann Strauss lived in the neighborhood, and even composed his "Blue Danube" waltz while living on Praterstrasse.
please share the trick with me, once you have figured it out! ;-)
is that a cool bike or what? ;-)
A brush with color,
merci! Carol's way too busy painting Parisian breakfasts! ;-)
The light was poor yesterday, dull colors, no reflections whatsoever from a gray sky.
"Takt" is familiar to me only in "Lean Manufacturing" terms - not music - sorry! :)ReplyDelete
Laughing at the cake name, Drunken Capuchin Monk. Looks good too.ReplyDelete
Well, that interpretation is truly funny! :-)
3/4 Takt refers to the waltz's 3/4 time (the restaurant sign refers to the Viennese waltz, danced at a much faster pace than the original waltzes, which where more like slow motion twirls compared with the Viennese's speed).
growing up, my mom used to make a one, with farina, soaked in hard cider after baking. Nowadays, all I can find is the brown capuchin, made with walnuts and grated dark chocolate, then soaked in wine (the wine is heated with sugar and cinnamon sticks, the alcohol boiled off). It is a most delicious concoction. ;-)
A cuppa and such a pretty one at that :)
Beautiful sculptures, interesting shop fronts, coffee and cakes - I enjoyed my walk.ReplyDelete
