For those who can't make it to Vienna tomorrow – this is what it looks like.
left: Volkstheater with a red star on top
far distant background, to the left: Hochhaus Herrengasse (Vienna's first skyscraper, dates back to the 1930s)
very far distant background to the right: Vienna's latest sykscraper by Dominique Perrault. There were meant to be 2 towers, but the recession cut the project in half.
centre: Lefthand you see an old tramway, impossible to get on one of these trains with a buggy without help. The entrances are really high. But I like their "faces" anyway. Righthand you see the rear of a new model. Less character, more comfort.
right: Grey box with orange lid contains salt and gravel in case the streets get icy.
The design of the light poles is of the type "Lily of the Valley", you can see where the name comes from.
far right: Windows facing the street when open: windows like these don't meet today's safety standards anymore. This building is listed, so the windows
What else can we see? Couples! This time of the year is the time for travelling couples, it seems :-)
PS: the photo is not underexposed. It is quite dark, from sundawn til sunset at this time of the year.
PPS: I will add a new label soon. Not sure how to label it, though. "The other Vienna". "Vienna as I see it", "Vienna in 50mm", "What Vienna looks like. Meanwhile I stick with "Vienna".
