  1. The photo with the blue watering can......only an artist could capture it. Amazing.

    You've done it again Merisi.

  2. Good morning, Merisi.

    While having my morning cup of Italian roast coffee, I have had such fun feasting my eyes over coffees in Arles and Vienna, marveling at the wonderful light in each of your photos.

    The blue hour is remarkable.

    The stroller on the hallowed steps makes me smile, as does that blue watering can.

    Arles is another place I think I would like to visit. The photography show must have been remarkable. Perhaps the August weather was also remarkable in its own way?

    Best wishes. xo

  3. Remarkable photos. The lighting, architecture and subjects are a feast for the eyes.
    I love the blue watering can in the window. Lovely.

  4. Such lovely dreaming pastels! And how different from your shots of Provence. Your camera found the soul of both places.

  5. Each so artistic a capture, brilliantly done~ Have a delightful and very safe weekend~

  6. Hi, please have a look...

  7. Very nicely done. Thank you.

  8. Beautiful shots. Didn't know about a bakery museum, sounds interesting :)

  9. Thank you all for your wonderful comments! :-)

    the Bakery Museum is quite interesting and the Altwiener Apfelstrudel in the little cafe' is great!
    The restaurant has such cozy rooms, I want to try it at the next opportunity. Everybody was extremely friendly and helpful.

  10. The beauty of this building is something I cannot fathom, without touching it.
    Thank you for letting me get close to understanding what is there.

  11. Browsing your blog, preparing for my upcoming visit to Vienna. Your photos are fabulous. Thanks for your "view."

  12. Browsing your blog in preparation for an upcoming trip to Vienna. I love your perspective on your city. I hope I will be able to capture a bit of it while I am there.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
