Heart of Vienna Reflected

 Vienna, 2011

Reflections of the heart of Vienna, Der Graben, including its most famous landmark Stephansdom (St Stephen's Cathedral) in store hours sign and store windows. [Better seen enlarged.]

Below is a longer view of the pedestrian street with the once exclusive apparel and fine linens store E Braun & Co established in this building (with the tower) in 1893, now the Swedish mid-range fashion chain store H&M.

You positioned yourself perfectly for this reflection.
(and I like that the store hours sign is inside that medallion shaped window!)

A great capture of a wonderful old city.

When I lived in Vienna as a child, there was a fantastic toy shop right opposite Stephansdom. Long gone now but Mum would invariably try to avoid stopping there! Lovely shots! Last time I was in Vienna my film camera gave up on me after 30 years (since been repaired), very frustrating...

I love to walk Am Graben, it is one of the most animated place in Vienna. A wonderful place to watch people and...have a tasty cake at "Aida":)

Have a great weekend.

Two reflections in one shot! Not easy to achieve. More than anything I like the capture of casual elegance this cafe exudes.

I have a cousin who goes to Vienna often to just get away and kick around for awhile...

Me? I get to see it in pictures:) Thanks again!

Haven't been there for ages! Not my favourite city, actually, but your photos are so superb, that maybe it's time to revisit Vienna:)
Have a nice weekend!

Here I go again...Vienna, 2011....Buddy has wanted me to get to co there for years. I play violin and adore the Magic Flute...think Mozart is heavenly...and is, too, was a bit off of plumb. Now my imaginary trip is getting to be a bit longer. You need to get your travel agent had on, because you have a magical job ahead of you. This first shot is so beautiful...and the city shot seems to have written on it...Genie...come on over. Hugs, genie

You set this up nicely! It's the reflection in the "medallion" that really turns me on...I see a light pole which looks like a shower head - very nice!
