I love this image. Ted and I took the escalator up to the terrace of Albertina, Vienna’s most important collection of Graphical Art. I saw the reflection in the window and reflexively took the image. You can’t call that a well planned shot. Not really.
But look at it: Everything’s there!
Behind the glass a menu with Wiener Schnitzel and lots of other typically viennese meals.
Three horse carts, in Vienna called “Fiaker”.
To the left in the background Alfred Hrdlicka’s Monument against Fascism.
To the right in the windows on the far side we see posters of Egon Schiele and Siegmund Freud.
Any cliché missing?
Now that I think of it, the escalator didn’t move, we had to climb. The glass was very dark and I had to use 1/6 s. Had it moved, the shot would have been impossible.
Oh, and, one more thing: Today is this blog’s 12th birthday! Cheers 🍻
