Catching the first drops
Mozart at Michaelertor
Umbrella to the rescue!
Run, Viola Run!
Instrument saved, musician wet
Defying the Downpour
Fiaker Lantern at Michaelerplatz
Quick, Save the Violin!
All musicians getting wet
The Lantern Turning Reflective
While everybody else is seeking shelter
Heading Down Kohlmarkt
To the nearest refuge
High and Dry at Demel's
Eine kleine Kanne Tee?
A large pot of tea, anyone?
This is a re-post!

No, it is not raining in Vienna today!ReplyDelete
The sun is shining and I am very busy, so I decided to republish an old post. I do get quite nostalgic, looking at them (I only go back to my archive when I am thinking about republishing or looking for some specific picture). I still remember the moment, standing there under my umbrella and shooting with that beloved little Sony Cybershot. Photographs really help to hold on to the moment. dont't they?
A beautiful day to all of you, blue skies,
with a bit of relieve for those of you who have been suffering from a relentless heat wave,
I cannot imagine a better place to shelter than Demel... marvellous post.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Gavin!ReplyDelete
I don't know if the pictures explain well enough why the musicians are in shirtsleeves: With the first raindrops falling, they took off their jackets to cover their instruments! True love. ;-)
Love the "lantern turning reflective"ReplyDelete
You weren't taking bad pictures even in those days ;-)ReplyDelete
I hope to be there again, one fine day, when a summer storm lets lose over Michaelerplatz! ;-)
Yes, I would like some tea;). Such a great post, love the rainy images, and Mozart is my favorite composer, love classical music, especially his work~ReplyDelete
Regenmusik is music indeed! If it were to happen on these hot dry days it would be a wonderful relief!ReplyDelete
And I can just imagine being high and dry and cozy in Demel's at a table with that view...enjoying my "can" of tea...
Thanks for the referral to Mallie...I went visiting and loved it.
Oh dear...I did not pay close attention to Maalie's spelling....I think I did the same on his blog...I must go apologize.ReplyDelete
Very enticing post on Vienna!ReplyDelete
Love the reflective lanterns...
Love ALL of it
Especially the Demel sign...
My trip to Maine got me thinking I must venture outside of Paris occasionally for Heaven's sake!
The second photo is AMAZING!!!ReplyDelete
Hopefully by now they got mozart a gold or yellow umbrella :)ReplyDelete
I immediately realized that they were protecting their prized possessions--the instruments. Lovely!ReplyDelete
A perfect day to enjoy a melange!ReplyDelete
A charming suite of photos!ReplyDelete
Thank you all for your kind comments!ReplyDelete
did you notice that Mozart's umbrella was fashioned out of sheet music?
Unfortunately, I have not yet seen Mozart himself around town this summer.
Loved this, and your wonderful sense of humour...matching perfectly your composers eye.ReplyDelete
Hope you are not too busy to be enjoying summer and visiting Demel's! I promise to come back soon, but for now I am still hiding in Maine enjoying the blueberries and the cooler weather.ReplyDelete
"Run, Viola, Run!"...Haha, you crack me up! :-)ReplyDelete
Demel seems like the best place in the world to take refuge. Poor Mozart- can't help but wonder what happened to those powdered wigs in the rain!ReplyDelete
