Sky Watch Friday - Screeeechhh....

City 1st district

20 Aug 08


After so many years of being drived on, this is how a curved street of Vienna looked...on the other hand, the Danube still looks calm and peaceful even on an unpredictable day (as seen from the train)...



Summer, as it always had the past years, seemed to be missing much of the sun...clouds are always gloomy and light rains continue to water the city at certain times of the day. Honestly, I find this kind of weather better than the sun's scorching heat. Wait...isn't it autumn yet? (I had to mentally note, September 22 is the start of autumn lol) I guess autumn started earlier again!

  3. Two such very different images. I would never have thought to photograph a street purely from the point of the tyre marks. Good thought. The water that the yacht is sailing on is so very still. Grey is still a good colour. We just have to adjust our mood accordingly.

    Thank you.

  4. We've been having a good summer, weather-wise, it's been cool and pleasant, although today I think we are getting up there in the 80s.

    Love that street shot, you know me and my street addiction (among other things).

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog. It could be a Sky Watch picture but I couldn't wait. I will post SWF on my other blog. Smallcityscenes.blogspot.com.
    Later anyway.
    Your pics are wonderful. It does seem like we too have had more gloomy days than sunny. Apparently we have broken records for rain in August. Oh well next year something different. MB

  6. Nice catch for SWF! In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then beleive them to be true. Mine’s up too hope you can drop by… Happy SWF!

  9. Thank you for the glimpse of Vienna. I used to live near Munich many years ago but I was not able to visit Wien. Great sailboat photo too.

    Cheers, Klaus

  14. Hi Gizelle,
    Thanks for the award, and sorry for the delay in collecting it... You know, things get worse here when everybody else is enjoying their vacation...
    I'll try to get back with some more time to enjoy your pictures... When? ;)

  20. "Louis" likes the composition of the photo of the boat. It has a nice calm feel of solitude about it.

    Regarding your question about the hill Chez Louis, "Louis" shot that photo halfway down the hill! It is VERY steep!

  31. Great shots as always, G. :)

    Our summer's not that great either. We're getting too much rain and the mornings are getting cool again. Fall is making an early return I think :(
