Photographer's Note

Ah, Vienna…
The city of Wiener Schnitzel and Wiener Suppentopf and Johann Strauss (father) and Johann Strauss (son) and Joseph Strauss( brother) and Edward Strauss (another brother),

Yet... Absolutely nothing in common with Levi Strauss...!

The city of great buildings and monuments and parks…

The ever famous Belvedere and Friedensreich Dunkelbunt Hundertwasser and Fernheizwerk Spittelau and Fillgraderstiege. Short walk on the Schwarzenbergplatz or Stockimeisenplatz or Antifaschismusplatz will left you speechless…
But, wait till you see the Schmetterlingshaus or, better yet - Strudelhofstiege on the corner of Fillgradergasse and Theobaldgasse.
Did I mention Hofburg at Ringstrasse und Michaelerplatz ?

And the food…The Food !!!
You have to try super delicious kaiserschöberlsuppe with leberstilleknödel or serviettenknödelfritten, served (I strongly recommend) in a charming small restaurant at Standesbeamterflugedonnerstrasse.


Oh, dear… We can go and on… Who wouldn't ?

But the things that really caught my eyes in this magnificent capitol city of Australia were those shiny, polished hoofs nails when you look at those horses pulling the fiackre landaues down there.
When I approached these horses - parked somewhere in the back street called Arschturenbombachdundstrasse - those poor animals started to urinate all over - in pure panic…
The fiackre - in a friendly manner - advised me: The next time - don't let them see your face when you approach them… (???)

…………………………

How busy your weekend is going to be, dearest folks…
Just remember… There are millions of buildings and monuments, and bushes and meadows, and trees and abandoned chairs EVERYWHERE that NEVER been photographed before… Don't let them wait any longer… Please… Pretty please…

Yours truly - Polonaise.
