Un Petit Coin De Parapluie

Paris, France  

For some reason I love taking pictures in the rain and or snow. When the umbrellas open up I start clicking away. The young lady in the photo seems to share my enthusiasm for rain or maybe there's magic in Paris rain.

Boys Will Be Boys

Budapest, Hungary

To be honest, when I saw these boys playing on top of a 30ft (9 meters) wall I thought that they lacked God-given common sense and they probably wouldn't see their 16th birthdays. Then I remembered myself at their age. This is the type of thing that my friends and I did all of the time. I don't condone this dangerous behavior, but I do understand it.

Der Mosesbrunnen

Vienna, Austria                                                        (The Fountain of Moses at Franziskanerplatz)

First there was the parting of  The Red Sea and now the parting of the white snow.

The perfect name for a crèche (daycare center)?  :-)

Le Lucky

Paris, France 


I was feeling lucky enough just being in Paris so I didn't want to be greedy and win the lottery too. ;-)

Look below the tabac signs at the smiling woman behind the counter. I thought I was being stealthy by taking this shot across the street.

When Dreams Come True

Budapest, Hungary    (Buda Castle and the Chain Bridge at Night)


I was really enjoying my dream and then I realized that I was wide awake, sitting on a bench in front of the Danube.

Snow at Hofburg Palace

Vienna, Austria                      (Sending cool thoughts to hot places) 

Fall and winter will soon be here. No offense to those who enjoy hot weather. :-)
