  1. I love the crisp, clean lightness of it. And that the pavement meanders a bit like an old garden walk.

  2. Lovely picture, as ever Merisi you capture light (and in a difficult narrow street). Have you been down the nearby Himmelpfortgasse yet to the Winter Palace of Prince Eugene of Savoy? I was there 2 weeks ago, and it is well worth seeing, but I found it very hard to capture the front ! Bet you will manage something nice though. Best wishes.

    1. Thank you, Kurwenal!
      Are you back in GB?
      I have not yet visited Prince Eugene's winter palace, after the renovation. To capture the façade it would take a special lens, but I will try to shoot some details. Cheers, M.

  3. Would you call those buildings brownstones?

    1. I would not. Besides the building material (could there be brownstone hiding under the façade? I suspect this is not a building material used around here), these are buildings that are wider and larger than American row houses or town homes. They are elegant city homes, though. Any architects out there?

  4. look realy interesting and nice article i like and enjoy...

  5. What a lovely area! Wonderful buildings and detail! And a beautiful sunny day as well Delightful captures for the day, Merisi, as always! Hope you have a great week!

  8. Merisi I am falling in love with Vienna, the facades, the light, and most especially the coffee houses.
