Perfectly nice pictures, but why so small? The first I like.
Inna,this is the large size, but they enlarge considerably when you click on them:the pictures will be shown in the larger size in a black light box. Hope that works for you,cheers,Merisi
Inna,larger pictures do not reflect how I want my posts to look. I like to play both with words and images, and in my eyes, the result works better when the post can first be seen and read as a whole. Enlarging afterwards gives the composition a little extra point.
I agree here, Merisi. My posts are both text and images, and I like them to be considered in their entirety. To have a certain 'style' to them that reflects me and how I see my world.
"skipping into spring" , their purple hats - harbingers of the first spring crocuses.
Indeed! Such happy noises, too. And did you notice the dad carrying an armful of clothing? These scenes are repeated all over town, after school, not only in Vienna, I suppose.
I think many of us are celebrating the coming of spring and your photos are wonderful as always, Merisi!! I love the iron gate!! Have a wonderful and hopefully "spring like" week!
Thank you, Sylvia,and may spring be kind to you, too!
Thank you! x
Spring has been elusive here in OxfordshirePerhaps if I skip round the village green...What do you think?
Definitely worth a try, Julia!Let me know about the results. ;-)
Totally gorgeous ironwork, Merisi. Is that a 'painted' colour or just corroded metal?
Julie, interesting question, intriguing colour! Definitely not corroded. Those picture were taken in bright sunlight, on sunless days the gates look much darker. Next time I am there, I'll investigate the colour a bit more!
P.S.: Maybe it's patina, after all? Now you have me stumped, Julie, I won't be able to sleep! Just kidding, will definitely look into it,good night from Vienna,Merisi
I can see tomorrow's headline:Merisi makes a complete fool of herself! ;-)
The sun is shining but it must be quite cold, judging by the way everyone is so warmly bundled up.Beautiful color, those gates!
Sara, you are right, it was still freezing cold on April 4, when I captured these images.It has warmed up considerably since then, thank heavens!Cheers,Merisi
These blues look like paintings..Watercolor naturally :)
Nice to see the children full of the joys of Spring. Hope you are in the same mood, Merisi! The fan-shaped image in the first photo seems to mirror the arch and ironwork of the gate. I can't work out if it's a glass reflection or you can see through the gate to something in the distance. Intriguing.
Linda, this is one of the windows on the side opposite the entrance. You see both a reflection and one of the entrance doors. I have another picture, will publish it one of the coming days. The entrance and windows of the palace are breathtakingly beautiful.Yes, I feel much better, now that the sun is out and temperatures are climbing!Cheers,Merisi
Here spring is still missing... and I am getting nervous!!:-))
I feel for you - sending you some sunshine,Merisi
Everything seems and sounds nicer with the laughter of children in the background. :-)
Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
