The Albertina Museum, the building on the right,
narrowly escaped catastrophic damage on Sunday night:
Water entering the storage area threatened
the Albertina's priceless collection
of works by artists such as Michelangelo,
Leonardo da Vinci, Albrecht Dürer and Egon Schiele.
Gracing the entrance to an antiques store
A "Pfiff" - a bit more than 3 ounces of beer - in the rain,
to wash down Trzesniewski's famous sandwiches.
Stolen image, the patron had temporarily
abandoned his table.
Turning from Graben
into St. Peter's Square
Graben in the Rain
at Meinl's outdoor café.
So very civilized and comforting,
sipping your coffee indoors on a rainy evening,
while observing the scene outside.
Oh, said the waitress,
you are taking a picture!
Would you like more foam?
No, thank you, I answered,
I like the coffee just the way it is:
Delicious to a fault!
