New Year's Eve

“New Year's eve is like every other night;
there is no pause in the march of the universe,

no breathless moment of silence among created things
that the passage of another twelve months may be noted;

and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of darkness on other nights”
Hamilton Wright Mabie

  13. A beautiful poem to go with your lovely sunrise/sunset photos. Happy New Year, Merisi!

  14. I love the colours in the sky!! And I was amused to see the satelite dishes in juxtaposition with the ancient buildings!! In Canada, an old building is anything over 50 years, so different from Vienna!

  15. Amazing buildings, history and culture! Happy New Year! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  16. What a marvelous and beautiful post, Merisi! The skies are incredible, lovely colors! And what an amazing and beautiful place! And wonderful, wise words.

  17. So beautiful! May your New Year be beautiful as well as happy!

  18. Incredibly beautiful as usual but even if I'm no more a beginner at MVFB, I'm still dazzled by your Vienna!
    Very happy new year Merisi!Best wishes to you and your family!

  19. Hi Merisi, I have been out of circulation for a while and it has been a treat to browse through your site again. I always say that this is where I come for my fix of culture. Definitely more so after the ruggedness of Lesotho.
    Thanks for your visit and I hope you have a really great 2010

  20. Beautiful skies and captures!
