The opening image is just an eyecather. has nothing to do with the following ... I just like it for the fact that is an eyecatcher. That's why it is around all year long despite being a christmas-thingy.
After yesterday's exitement - the paper experience - I decided to take it down a notch, time for a cool down.
During summer my way back from work takes me to the outskirts of Vienna. You are going to see this ride by bike step by step.
Here I am at Westbahnhof, a huge building lot where the new central station to be is developping. The pictures lack saturation due to the daytime (8pm) and the dry, hot sandy air in the city.
Some of you might remember the flower bed that caught my attention this spring.
Attention, attention: the flowers are the same flowers you can see in the picture above, the round flower bed in front of the construction site at Westbahnhof.
I admire the choices of colours. Not too colourfull but well assorted they are:
I had the chance to meet one of the people in charge who decide which colours will bloom all over the city, millions of plants planted in hundreds and thousands of flower-beds. The trend is "less is more". 3 colours at most!
Mr Paula and I spend the summer in the outskirts of the city, imitating the emperor anno 1910, he also escaped the city and spend the summer months in Schönbrunn, his residence. Well, our home is not Schönbrunn palace, but since I pass it on my way home from work I thought why not stop and take a thorough look:
Thesde pictures tell the story. The ride home is tranquil, the air is warm and the city slows down. Vienna is a city that does sleep. At night. And night starts early around here.
This window is part of 'Fuchs', the place where go would go to get either: Lampe Berger AND The Laundress. Shall we call it Ladies' and Gent's heaven?
Having admired the store way too long, it got dark by the time I continued the ride home.
Good night and enjoy this August-weekend!
