Vienna!





It has been over a year since I visited a new place. There is nothing like seeing a city for the first time that inspires me to start taking photos again, having lost my passion for photography for way too long now.

Vienna ... what a city! Trendy, beautiful, stylish. A cultural hotspot which is tourist friendly but is too sophisticated to become a tourist trap. Home to music, good food, dazzling architecture, stunning art and European history.

It is not so much a photographic treat as it is for a feast of the cultural senses. A large part of Vienna is more of that I have experienced, rather than that I photographed. However, it was the cultural feast that fed my inspiration to pick up my camera, take my time, and take my place again behind the safe haven of my camera's lens.

I invite you to see Vienna through my eyes.

Taken in July 2009, with thanks to Michel for his tripod.

Best viewed on the SLIDESHOW format.

More to come.
