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 "J├Ągerball", 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.
