From the outside looking in at
Pâtisserie Demel's window display,
with the reflection of a window
of Michaelerhaus across the street.
Michaelerhaus is where the 18 year old Joseph Haydn
moved in 1750, to live there in an attic room
for more than five years.
The former choir boy and budding musician
had to work as valet back then,
to earn a meager living.

That picture is the perfect embodiment of Vienna in the holiday season -- at least, as I imagine it.ReplyDelete
Wow! Gorgeous pic!ReplyDelete
Magnificent! I love the light and the reflections and the grace of this picture.ReplyDelete
Now I can see that there is more to Demel's than marvelous coffee and pastry!
very nice, these images over one another...ReplyDelete
Thank you all! :-)ReplyDelete
I agree, Vicki! :-)
oh yes, there definitely is, even though the pastries are as good as they get, still.
Ohhh, that's gorgeous. Looks like a reflection in the air. maybe another world bleeding through into ours.ReplyDelete
it certainly furthers poetic imagination,
"etheral" is what comes to mind.
Beautiful, my heart is stirring.ReplyDelete
Nice timing, we went to a Haydn concert on Sunday!ReplyDelete
Very beautiful is all I can say.ReplyDelete
Swooping filagree AND graceful arabesques of crystal drops...and because it's Demel's, one can fill one's eyes and exquisitely stuff a greedy tummy at the same time! It must be one of the most satisyingly beautiful places in the world.ReplyDelete
That photo warms my heart! I love Crystal and gold combinations!xoxoReplyDelete
