  1. A bit of a sappy title, I know, but could not think of anything better (amended the title, originally this post was called "Viennese Moments" only). Fact is, the past is the past and more moments than we imagine remain there, irrevocably, and we would not want to erase them all, would we? For example the Polar Rose. I walked up and down the rows of roses at the Rose Garden this past weekend, and I could not find any of the two bushes I thought I knew where they are located! I noticed some of the roses have been renamed since I first found them. So, one moment in time, at least for me, I was not able to revisit. Then, the "Foto" sign, it's gone, too!
    Happily, Diglas is still there, thank heavens!
    So, I hope you all are collecting and treasuring happy moments today, and every day,

    1. I noticed this post still runs on the old system, some of the pictures will open to older blog posts. ;-)

    2. Btw, there is no "Night Kitchen" in Vienna, only in my mind!
      Long story .... ;-)

  2. The shell and window get my vote, although there is such beauty in all your images.

  3. A breath of Springtime
    Such lovely images!

  4. Good to see all that recycling. Not much is done on that in our community.

  5. A fine collection of image4s, Merisi. I love that rose and the pile of newspapers.

    And look at you.. a profile photo. You're absolutely lovely! :)

  6. I like the movie and I like the photos.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
