Liechtenstein Palais in Alsergrund
Viennese Gardens in Autumn

Autumn's Last Call
Collecting or holding on
to autumn's bountiful harvest?

Along the walls of
the Liechtenstein Garden Palais
in Vienna's 9th District, Alsergrund

The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry's cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.
The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I'll put a trinket on.

  1. That's a marvelous shot, Merisi, and so very tuned to this time of year.

  2. Yes, stunning photo. I like the poem, too!

  3. Gutes Foto! Da gibt's doch den großen Kinderspielplatz, wo sich hunderte Kinder und Eltern tummeln.

  4. Very nice B&W. Ran across some of Edward Weston's B&W photos on TV. Who needs color when you can express the wonders of the world in shadow, light and form?

  5. Wow - this is stunning!
