Votivkirche and Snow Reflections
















Vienna, Austria (Cafe window reflections)

 People must have been wondering why I was taking a picture of this window when there was such a beautiful church behind me.

While I was in Vienna I used Votiv Church as a landmark when I needed to find my way back to the apartment. It was near our apartment but believe it or not we never went inside of the church even though we walked by it everyday. I kept thinking there was plenty of time to see it tomorrow. 

This post is for Weekend Reflections and The Weekend in Black and White.

  3. That sure is a lot of snow. The lettering looks like it should be moving like titles for an old movie. Which is so appropriate. I often look at your images and immediately start concocting stories in my head, especially with the black and whites. I love the dark mysterious figure... "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!"

  4. S'il n'y avait pas les voitures, on se serait crus au XIXè siècle avec l'effet de la neige sur la fenêtre. Superbes !

  5. The "coffee" warms up this snowy scene.
    You'll just have to go back someday and visit the Votivkirche.

  6. The writing is in the right position, but the photo is made by the blurred figure.

  7. I love the first photo. The coffee sign makes it more appealing as we wonder if it's a montage or else. Nice one!

  15. Definitely prefer the 2nd image with the pedestrian. I love when people wonder what the hell I'm doing. It's like knowing you're absolutely brilliant and they don't have a clue. Happy weekend James.

  17. There always seems to be plenty of time - until there isn't!

    I love these photos, particularly the second. That poor man could probable do with a 'coffee to go'

  18. Your first pic transports me to a fairy tale's place: Vienna -I've never seen it in snow!

  19. Certainly conveys warmth and cold and the pleasure of being inside in winter and sitting quietly while the world walks by.

  20. Amazing scenes drowning in snow! The church spires seem to be trying to puncture the white drifts and the coffee sign is like a brand of escape from the cold! Great photos!

    ReplyDelete

    Too bad that tomorrow never came...
    Blessings!

  26. Ah, the sacrament of coffee! :-)

  27. Anyone who knows you wouldn't have wondered for a second!

  28. Great shot - probably worth more than what was inside the church anyway.

  29. I know the feeling of being stared at when I take a photo of a window reflection. I'm sure they think I'm bonkers. :) How sad you never did go inside the church but I guess that means you'll have to go back, eh?

    Coffee may let snow melt.
    However, is it too much?

    Warm greetings.
