Albertina Square was home
to a Mozart monument for
more than fifty years, until 1953,
when it was transferred to
the nearby Burggarten,
the former private gardens
of the Emperor.
During Christmas time,
a heavenly flock of papier-mâché angels
watch over Café Mozart's patrons
from on high.

Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.
Wherever you are,
may all your wishes
Beautiful, beautiful pictures!ReplyDelete
May your own wishes come true also!
Oooh Blue. I love it. Perfect for winter. Peace.ReplyDelete
Is there a more beautiful city in the whole world? I wonder.ReplyDelete
Merisi, your views of a blue Viennese evening do give us inspiration to make wishes.ReplyDelete
Is it not good that we continue to wish, whether or not our prior wishes caught their particular star?
Thank you for the beautiful pictures! Lucky your are living in such a wonderful city! All the best wishes for you, too!ReplyDelete
Thank you for a year of wonderful images.ReplyDelete
why didn't I scroll...
More of your gorgeous (OK a misnomer) L'heure bleu.
Was it invented in Vienne and is Guerlain is a copycat?
I have been to Vienna already if only for an afternoon slice of gateau at the Sacher Hotel.
Have you been to Paris..?
Thank you all for your kind comments and wishes! :-)ReplyDelete
Carol @ Paris Breakfasts:
No, I have never been to Paris!
One dark winter morning, I flew in a plane over Paris, so low that I could even discern the illuminated streets and the Eiffel Tower. It was like flying over the most beautiful city on a magic carpet. I shall never forget it.
I am always torn when my visitors ask about the Sachertorte. I never liked it. Way too dry and the chocolate glaze too cloying for my taste. I have never been to the Sacher either. Every time I attempted to, they tried to shove me and my guests into the back room. Each time, I treated my guests to the Annatorte at Demel's instead: No one has ever complained about that alternative. ,-)
The blues and golds in these photographs are just stunning. You reveal such a beautiful world, Merisi.ReplyDelete
