It seems these luminous days
will never end.
which was almost empty during August,
now is filling up again.
are all reopening, the shops.
People are coming back
from the country, the sea,
from trips on roads
all jammmed with cars.

I love the word picture you developed with Luminous September. Beautiful.ReplyDelete
I do agree with photowannabe, wonderful word picture, lovely captures and a great greeting for September. Have a beautiful week, Merisi!ReplyDelete
Interesting to read that the city is filling up, September always has the feeling of a new year for us too.ReplyDelete
The statue in the first photo is so graceful and beautiful. Autumn is beginning to show her face all around the northern hemisphere these days...our only hint here so far is the shorter days...we are waiting...ReplyDelete
Your middle name is Luminous

Charming images and text...ReplyDelete
Your photos are a luminous reflection of Vienna's beauty. I would love to sit at that terrace table surrounded by red geraniums.ReplyDelete
On my only trip to Vienna (so far) I shared wonderful memories with my sister Nanette and there was much time spent at café tables plotting our next adventure. Glad to know that you have these lasting reminders too.
Lovely series of photographs.ReplyDelete
