A must on this grey day
Yes, it was raining stair-rods,
but the mood all around
was as cheerful
as the umbrellas
Photographed this afternoon
as a rainy day slipped into evening
in the square in front of City Hall

I miss these happy people already.
I see it's bringing in a whole lot of people!ReplyDelete
They were all over the city, and it was so much fun!Delete
Rainy but colourful!ReplyDelete
Rain at times brings out otherwise hidden beauty!Delete
The colors are so beautiful and I love the umbrellas and glitter road.ReplyDelete
Good stuff, Merisi.
Thank you, it means the world to me that you enjoyed the sights!Delete
Thanks for the great coverage. Such happy and colorful pictures.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Dina! :-)Delete
Oh, what fun!! And your captures are the next best thing to being there myself!! Thanks as always for sharing the fun, the color and the beauty!!ReplyDelete
Great to hear that you enjoyed the images!Delete
Lovely shots :-)ReplyDelete
Thank you! :-)Delete
Beautiful colorful shots, nice people!ReplyDelete
GREAT people, I tried to capture the mood as best as I could (I was soaking wet, my camera's still drying out ;-) )Delete
Who would have thought that a rainy day could be filled with so much colour!ReplyDelete
I felt really bad about the diluvial rain coming down all day. Kudos to everyone around for keeping up the festive air and spreading so much joy!Delete
They should have been on TV.
Well, Norway did not get 0 points THIS year:)
Austria did make a GREAT EVENT. Well done!
Thank you, Gunn!Delete
Music tastes differ, but the collective joy of so many people was something to remember whenever dark news loom!
Thank you for sharing these photos Merisi ! It was a marvelous TV show ! I would have liked that Italy wins, it was my favorite. Conchita is still as beautiful and talented, I like her.ReplyDelete
Thank you Austria !
Thank you, Nathanaelle!Delete
Many in the crowd rooted for Italy, but it was not meant to be. I agree, Conchita's a many-talented artist!
These are all wonderful! The first one is my favorite, it's such a perfect capture all around. Wish I could have stopped by myself.ReplyDelete
Thank you! Yes, I wished you'd have been able to join the soaking wet fun!Delete
Merisi, your fabulous photos do let us see lots of the fun and flair of Eurovision. I've heard about this occasion for years, and know it's a bit like Marmite. Perhaps some day I will actually watch some of the competition and truly form my own opinion...for now, I will rely on the joy in your coverage. xoReplyDelete
The ESC being hosted in Vienna made me experience how much good will and joy it brings to so many people. So, more power to them! :-)Delete
I heard that we won it again. A horrible song if you ask me, my musical taste is very different from the songs in this competition. But I hope everyone had a good time.ReplyDelete
From what I have seen and experienced, a good time was had by all!Delete
That looks like too much fun. If it was up to the world's youth. Song, love and understanding would prevailReplyDelete
Walking amongst the crowd and talking to people from all over Europe, was really uplifting!Delete
The "Conchitas" were so sweet and fun! And hosting Australia was an enriching experience. I wished you'd won, leaving some hope of rehosting the event next year. ;-)ReplyDelete
