Photographer's Note

Vienna again, a night scene from Heldenplatz, free translation "Heroes square". The house is part of the Hofburg, Imperial Castle, and this place is where the famous balls are held. I did not know this, I was passing by on my way back to the hotel at about 9 and there was a lot of cars, people and music and of course a brilliant illumination.

The next morning I happened to see the "Ballkalender 2004" posted at the entrance of this building and according to that this was the night of the "Jägerball", the Hunters ball. But more interesting, how many towns have an official "Ballkalender"?

The lights did a fine work to give the castle a golden glow, in daylight it has a dull light grey color. I took an extra walk back after fetching my mini tripod at the hotel.
