Guarding the Palace
The Upper Belvedere Palace
Another sphinx, looking at you!
Illuminated, reaching for the sky
Photographed Sunday Evening
I had visited an exhibition at the nearby 21er Haus Museum,
which closed at 6:00 PM. I decided the evening was too beautiful
to go home immediately and took a walk through the Belvedere gardens.
I had no camera (yes, those rare moments exist), so I tried to capture
the scene with my mobile phone, as best as I could.
Now I wonder, is there an App for Dummies, or anything that could help me
capture better, less pixelated pictures?

-> Sphinx, at Dictionary.com:
"Classical Mythology. a monster,
usually represented as having the head and breast of a woman,
the body of a lion, and the wings of an eagle. Seated on a rock outside of Thebes,
she proposed a riddle to travelers, killing them when they answered incorrectly,
as all did before Oedipus. When he answered her riddle correctly the Sphinx killed herself"
