The late days in a late year can be colourful and bright.
Only a few metres lie between the photo above and the photo below.
At this time of the year tourists brighten up the grey city.
Here you can see a rather confusing bicycle-crossing in the middle of a sidewalk. As I said, confusing. Right?
A glimpse inside the Volksgarten.
Roses, wrapped up, waiting for those bitterly cold nights that are still to come. Nothing is moving. Downtime.
Very much to my surprise and joy the bags come in various designs. Underneath the jute bag is another bag, made of paper: double thermo insulation. Bravo!
Some spices from Hamburg made it here, too!
What would the Viennese Café be without coffee beans?
You can adopt a rose bush. The patrons of this rose take extra care.
This bag looks very authentic.
You find jute bags like these in any shabby chic bistro around the globe.
Oho! Clean, Sound and New! Papua New Guinea comes with the extra mile.
Green coffee beans for the artisans in Vienna who roast coffee the "Melange" way.
Aha. A deconstructivist bean bag. What is it trying to tell us? I frankly do not know.
I walked past these bags many times, for many years. Never before I had taken notice of the designs.
Time for the big picture. Myriads of jute-rose-bags to the left and as many to the right and in the back. Roses everywhere. This park is famous for its roses in full bloom.
Where are the people? Shopping! It is Half past four, all the shops are still open.
One word: Morbid.
Two months from today I will be wandering around Rome. Moving on a slow path, just like today, would be the best way to discover Rome. Keeping my fingers crossed that the Rome Rush won't catch me as soon as I get there!
I highly recommend double clicks on the images for enlarging them. You might miss the details otherwise. QuicklybBrowsing through is of course fine for me, too.
