Morning in the City
Viennese Moments

Antique Storefront
The sun slowly pulling
away the shadows of the night

Chairs and Passementerie

Morning Symphony

  1. The photos may be of years ago, but the light is the same today. Finally, the darkest winter in 50 years has ended. Not only that, but the flu that has taken over my household shows signs of leaving, too. I can't wait to get up and outside again.

    Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, filled with sunshine or whatever you wish for or need,

  2. Sorry to learn that you have been entrenched with the dreaded flu, but happy that you are now on the mend - just in time to greet the spring. Touch wood, it passed over this house, but I know it has really knocked people for six.

  3. It's sunny in Warsaw today, but I have a bad cold. Glad to hear that you are on the mend. Have a good weekend, Merisi.

  4. Beautiful photos, Merisi! The shadows and light
    in a courtyard is gorgeous too.

    Hope you have a pleasant weekend.

  5. The whole world is a play ground for shadows and light, but never more so than at morning and dusk.

  6. Lovely…your pictures definitely contribute to my spring fever :)

  7. How lovely to see some sunshine!! Even in years old photos from Vienna!! I'm happy to get whatever I can in whatever way!! Hope your weekend is going well, Merisi! Enjoy!

  8. Your photographs have a light and texture all of their own.
