Wine, Deli and Bar
Coming and Going
Spezerei and Schatztruhe
A door opens and
almost without a sound,
falls shut again

clicking on the pictures will take you on more walks through Leopoldstadt, Vienna's 2nd District, across the Wien river from the 1st District.
To all a good week!
I love that intense clear blue in the first shot and then the reflections of that same blue in the various windows...ReplyDelete
A story there...
You are my door to blue skies today. I keep telling my husband how much I want to visit Vienna. He doesn't realize why (or how) my obsession keeps getting topped up!ReplyDelete
Yes, Carol, there's a story there: Remember that gnome with the red hat? Well, that was not really a gnome, but ... to be continued! ;-)
Just make sure that you ask for that Big Blue Sky when you book: They are as special as they are rare. I took Friday off and walked and walked because we've had too many grey days this November already.
All beautiful but the reflections in the windows are my favorites.ReplyDelete
I followed your advice, clicked on a couple of pictures, and my walks transported me further and charmed my senses. Lovely.ReplyDelete
Wow, so much beauty. You have a wonderful eye -- and a wonderful ear. I very much appreciated the mention of the silent door. Thank you for sharing these.ReplyDelete
Love the doors and windows with all their character. The reflections are almost haunting.ReplyDelete
Looking forward to when you will post the "P" picture. (:0)
I do so love wandering about with you, Merisi. I can wear my pyjamas or high heeled shoes and leave my camera at home. But I'm glad I'm properly attired today because I think I'll just pop in to the Cadiz Tapas Bar for a bit...ReplyDelete
I took a walk through a door and around a corner and am so glad I did. "Lass die Seele baumeln." Will remember that. Danke!ReplyDelete
your wanders through vienna have once again transported me to plains of delight...ReplyDelete
I love to see Vienna through your artist's eye. Pure escapism!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, dear friends,ReplyDelete
for your generous comments!
They are a true inspiration,
I missed this yesterday. The blue theme in the windows is so wonderful. Love the poem.ReplyDelete
Love the first piture , the mix between green and goldReplyDelete
I see a palm tree growing there. I always thought it would be too cold in Vienna for palms. It looks just like the palmetto trees that grow here in Florida.ReplyDelete
these palm trees are moved indoors once the temperature falls to near zero. There are many palm trees around Vienna, as well as oleander bushes. Viennese don't seem to mind that it takes a lot of effort to keep them alive during the winter months.
