After leaving the Kunsthalle in Vienna where I visited two interesting exhibitions about fashion photography I discovered at the Museumsquartier this cute painting of a shy fox hidden behind benches
An interesting detail of Slovakia (and Czech Republic): There are more than usual loudspeakers in the streets. Not only in the main cities but also in the smaller ones. A kind of political information system? Which countries do you know where you can see many loudspeakers in the streets?
While walking along the Kärntner Strasse in Vienna, I met this piano player. What was your most impressive moment with a busker?
Fascinating old lantern seen in Wiener Neustadt, a city south of Vienna. I wonder what was the reason for designing this eagle-like bird so ‘plucked’?
On my walk through Friesach I discovered this clever idea to visualize the medieval gate called Posttor or Olsator in its shape of about 1200 AD. The sign was transparent so I was able to match past and presence.
During my visit at Pöstlingberg, a lookout of Linz, it rained cats and dogs. Even the garden gnome, who I asked for the way to Pöstlingberg Mansion (Pöstlingberg Schlössl), carried an umbrella to protect himself. [German]
On my research tour for Austrian tracks in Italy I also visited the Borgo Teresiano of Trieste. It was founded by Maria Theresa in the middle of 18th century. The canal depicted above was a waterway for merchant ships in order to bring commodities directly to the merchants in the city. [German]
One of the numerous inner yards called Durchhäuser in the old part of Salzburg. The name refers to the fact you can go through (durch) these yards in order to get from one public street to the other.
These two guys made my day while I was walking through the Kärntner Straße, one of the most important shopping streets of Vienna.
While walking through the Czech city Tabor I came across this funny fireplug. Tabor is a historic city in the region of South Bohemia, Czech Republic. An attraction of this place is an accessible system of tunnels below the city.

While my visit at Nuremberg I was told there is one man with a licence for a gondola. After some hours watching the river in the middle of the city I was able to catch him on a photo. The building in the background is named ‘Heilig-Geist-Spital‘. During medieval times it used to be a home for old and sick people.
