Sky Watch Friday

An angel searching for a landing place to take a rest on his long flight around the globe,
curiously looking into every window.

Visit to watch the sky worldwide!

Brenda's Photo Challenge - Looking Upwards

Walking through the streets of a city gives you plenty of opportunities to look upwards!
Scaffolding in a narrow street, a tree stretching into the sky,
the sunlight painting airy patterns onto a wall.
Windows absorbing the first sunlight of spring.

Sky Watch Friday

Watching the clouds, catching the moon,
visiting St. Stephen's Cathedral and Millennium Tower,
greeting the gargoyles -
that's what's up in Vienna's sky today.

Rainy Evening in Vienna....

Ahhh, this was a pleasant evening!
After a heavy working day I spent some time in my favourite "Kaffeehaus" (and took this rainy picture when I left) and then my hubby called me and we spent the evening with a friend who invited us to watch a movie which was produved 1952 in post-war Vienna and which was designed to become a successor of "The Third Man", but without Hollywood stars. It turned out to be a flop and ruined the producers.
But we enjoyed it very much: a crazy pianist tyrannizing his wife, murdering her friend who tries to help her escape, a taxi driver without papers finding the corpse in his car, taking the passport and the plane ticket to USA, but by and by being confronted with the lady and the murder, finally supports her and risks his fate for her - everything in a nonchalant way as Harry Lime would have done, and THEY SUCCEED, they become a happy couple, the husband detected, and a plane rising in the monochrome sky - beautiful, and full of tension!

Summer vacation

This time I want to show you some photos from our summer vacation in 2007.
We stayed in Salzkammergut near Lake Wolfgangsee,
an Austrian region with smooth green hills,
high mountains and lovely blue lakes.
This is a view from our balcony!

We had a wonderful time and it is so good to remember!

Here you find many more beautiful regions from all around the globe:

Recollections of summer

Today I read several blogs whose blog owners had been tagged. Show me the 6th picture of your 6th file, they were requested.
I loved to see this game and imagined which picture I would have chosen as my 6th of 6th...
It was not so difficult a task!
I am sure it comes not as a surprise that my 6th file contains summer pictures
with a lake, bathing, my (hydrophobic) doggy splashing around trying to catch fish, me with a sun hat and a book etc etc...
Oh yes, outside now it is -3° Celsius.... :((
