Dressed up for the Night

by - 21.3.11

Some months ago I was putting up a series of photos about our Lange Nacht der Museen (long nights at the museum) experience. I still got a lot of photos that I haven't shown and these are some of the more appropriate not only for My World Tuesday but for Night Shots as well. 

The woman in the photo was someone who just got out of the bus (yes, I was inside the bus when this shot was taken). She caught my attention because of the red beret/beanie and the doll hanging on her bag.

We met her again later by the Albertina....the museum you can see below. The green statue is something I have featured too in the past, most recently in the window reflection two posts before this. Up there was where I was standing when I took the photo of the Opera haus.

P.S. I made a listing of all the blog memes I am joining, others that I plan to join, if you host a meme, please kindly inform me through the Daily Badges Page.

    They say that just one touch of red
    Will put big, bold thoughts in your head.
    So scarlet’s for you,
    And burgundy too,
    And cardinal and carmine—‘nuff said!

  13. Red is something that would usually catch your attention but the doll hanging on her bag did it for me. :D Look at those people lining up to get inside the museum. So many art appreciators and enthusiasts. You'll never see that in the museums here unless it's a social function.

  14. It shows in her dress how cold it was that night. nice shot!

  15. You have this good photos in your page! What camera do you use?
