Morning in the City

Morning in the City
6th District

Thursday morning
I had a few minutes
to explore the neighbourhood
whiles waiting for
the camera store to open

and caught these images
in a nearby courtyard.
These chance encounters
of unexpected beauty
even on a hectic day
with no time to spare
are part of Vienna's
charme and quality of life:
All of a sudden
the world stands still
and readjust itself
to give you space
to breath

N o t e
I spent yesterday evening at the theater
and watched the Austrian premiere of
Tiit Ojasoo / Ene-Liis Semper / Theater NO99 Talinn
Kuidas seletada pilte surnud jänesele -
How to Explain Pictures to a Dead Hare

These two and a half intense hours were one of the most memorable performances of modern theater I had ever seen! There are two more performances of this play,
today, Sunday, and tomorrow, Monday, at 8.30pm.
Lucky you, if you can find the time to attend!
Tickets are only 19 Euros.
For more information, click
-> Wiener Festwochen

A wonderful Sunday
to all of you,
wherever you are!


  1. I like the one pink flower against the whitewashed wall.

  2. So 'summer' and so like Impressionist paintings. Just beautiful!

  3. Merisi, I wish that I could see that theatre production. Maybe some day it might show up over here.

    Meanwhile, you again delight us with your way of finding that charming bit of beauty just around a corner.

    Lucky for us that the camera store was not yet open!


  4. Liebe Merisi,
    danke für Deine liebe Nachricht. Ich hab jetzt eine Woche in Kärnten verbracht und hatte bei dem wunderschönen Wetter keine Zeit zum Bloggen, Fotos kommen in der nächsten Zeit!
    Liebe Grüße und schöne Woche, Maria

  5. Liebe Merisi! Ich war in den letzten zwei Wochen zuerst beruflich, dann privat unterwegs in Wien, Baden, Rust und Eisenstadt und vor allem zu meiner großen Freude wieder einmal in Grinzing. Habe viel fotografiert und mich immer wieder gefragt aus welcher Perspektive du wohl die Bilder gesehen hättest :) Dein Blog ist toll und stillvoll wie immer, ich bin so gern hier :)

  6. The white on white of the window fixtures is stunning in the dappled sunlight.

    Tell us more about the theater piece!!
