new friends and memories

October 26, 2015  •  2 Comments

Given the fact that we spent a lovely day yesterday with Bonnie and Ken, new friends that my sister and I met during the river cruise last year at this time, I thought it appropriate that today's blog reflect some of those memories.

When I saw a man hidden in this building alcove in Vienna, Austria, it was a photographic no brainer.  I had to take the shot.

Images one and three through five lead the viewer into and through with steps, facades and arches. Image two forces me to look through to understand what's in the mysterious reflection behind the brie. The gallery at Melk Abbey employs receding patterns perfectly, nearly to a vanishing point.

Thanks for another tour of middle Europe.
