Nice shoes, Teddy!

So sweet, those two,
aren't they?

Next time,

All these events
took place in Vienna today,
Saturday, April 18, 2009:
Bike and dove met at Dorotheergasse -
The dog rested at Stilgerecht, Planken- & Spiegelgasse -
The teddybears were captured at the ongoing Teddybear Convention at Galerie Ambiente, Lugeck 1


  1. Teddybear convention? Now that sounds fun!

  2. These are a riot! I enjoyed the teddy bears enormously today. Thanks for the good laugh.

  3. Oh my, Merisi, that first photo with the dove and the bicycle...sheer poetry. Your photography just gets better and better! ooxx

  4. Very lovely sequence, Merisi!

  5. The bird shot was such a delight. What a happy moment.
    Of course the teddys have bags of charm.

  6. Your post brought a giggle to me today. The bird photo is hilarious! LOVE the boxer in the doorway. We had a black lab that slept like that at the doorway of my daughter's room from the day we brought her home from the hospital as an infant.

    The teddys are adorable. How can you not fall in love with their sweet faces? The teddybear convention sounds like a fun adventure for a Saturday afternoon. Did you go? Hope you are enjoying your weekend. :D

  7. Great pictures and love your captions.

  8. That last one is hilarious! The first one is breathtaking.

  9. Last night I watched "Visions of Vienna" on PBS (Public Broadcasting System)....a gorgeous, gorgeous film mostly showing Vienna from above. With beautiful music and narration.

    Poor teddy...I hope he recovers!

  10. I'd have a hard time resisting buying - were they even for sale? - the bear in a vintage sports car. Amazing animal (both animate & inanimate) portraits!

  11. Beautiful as always, Merisi. Thank you!

  12. Thank you all for your kind comments! :-)

    the bears belong to the collection of the owner of the store - they are not for sale.

    the "Teddy Bear Convention" was purely my invention (my fantasy).
    There are so many bears in that shop window (which is more like a large room, glass walls on three sides), it could well be mistaken for a meeting of sorts. *smile*

  13. I simply ADORE the bicycle picture.

  14. Love the dove in the first shot.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
