A Merry Little Christmas Tour
Tis the Season to be Jolly

Mistletoe Row

Lady in Red
The door of a building undergoing renovation
had caught my eye, when this elegant lady
walked right by my viewfinder. Click!

The Sacher Hotel
Deck the halls and the entrance, too!

Furtuitous encounter
at what turned out to be
a Champagne bar being set up
at a Christmas market

Pretty Bad Picture
of St Stephen's Square at twilight -
we are not in a photography competition anyway,
we just want to be jolly -
Fa la la la la, la la la la!

  1. It's a lovely picture! St Stephen's?
    Is the Graben changed into a Christmas market?
    And yes, the lady in red is an example to us all.

    1. Elizabeth,
      I took the picture (with a 70s wideangle lens I need to learn to handle) from were Graben ends (right into Stock-im-Eisen-Platz, to the right, and St. Stephen's Square towards the cathedral).
      Yes, there is a Christmas market going on. I walked past there on Sunday afternoon with my friends from London and they loved it. I have not had a look at what they sell, being distracted by a church flea market going on right inside a building opoosite the cathedral. Got the nicest crotcheted white Christmas trees (me who says she's not willing to succumb to the buying frenzy … falala la la lala …) ;-)

  2. Lovely shots, Merisi!

    St. Stephens Square is magnificent!

  3. I thought that image of the square was pretty spectacular.

    1. That's why I published it, even though I am aware anyone with a tripod could get way better shot. ;-) That square, an intersection of three squares (if you count Graben as a square) and several streets, is fascinating any time of the day and season of the year.

  4. Awesome pictures. How funny! Those legs crack me up.

    That final image is downright dreamy.

  5. Sometimes we get the best shots when someone walks right into the picture. Viennese ladies have always been particularly chick.

  6. Loved that the Lady in Red photo-bombed your picture! As for St Stephen's Square, I think it is a gorgeous shot, and wish I could be in the middle of it right now!

  7. Certainly a lady in red. The square gives an interesting picture.

  8. Pretty "bad" picture? As if ANY of your pictures are bad!
    This one is awesome!
