This gilded statue of composer Johann Strauss II draws hundreds of tourists. Most of them simply want to make pictures of their friends and family standing in front of it. My own photographic objective was different -- I wanted to make a point about Strauss and his music. Since the sun was behind the statue, I had to move behind it to stress the glitter of the gold. This rear vantage point also made the statue more symbolic and less descriptive. I moved as close and low as I could, aiming my camera towards the clouds to make the arch over the statue work as a frame within a frame and help thrust Strauss towards the heavens. The spirit of the Waltz King and his music will always float over Vienna. And that's the point I tried to make with this picture.
