Vienna Un-still

I was wondering, what I can do to best present my pics from our recent trip to a few cities in Europe, given that the collection is very large, and the task of processing, herculean. It occurred to me that the city has to be presented for its essence and I should focus mainly on the images that were effortless, reserving the others for special considerations. With this background in mind, I've put together the below set of images captured while we were on the move, or when the subject was on the move. It's quite obvious to the people who know me that I love capturing streets, and soaking into the atmosphere.

Here, you'll see all things that caught my attention while I was on foot, or the sights that passed by while I was peeping through the window :-)

The bus qualified to this section because it doesn't just take you sight-seeing, but it's a sight to behold in itself!

Pretty Trams

The traditional way

The modern version

Super sleek, and so quiet that it can surprise you with a sudden horn if you're lost on its tracks


View of the City from the Hop-On Hop-Off

Urania and Adagio right next to the Danube canal. We'd rented an apartment at Adagio during our stay at Vienna.

Old city

The Big Bus on its Red route

A view from Albertina

So, this is how you perfect the art of watching the world go by...open windows, open roof, top floor of the bus, just the right combo for a cold but sunny day

The typical view of a skyline in Vienna...always consisting of tram cables


Transported (for sure) In Time (?)

The "Been there, done that" activity

Must be a great feeling...

Wonder if he has a rear view mirror there, checking out his looks


Other Curious Modes

No better way to explore the city than this...dedicated cycle lanes, and great weather

The city is so rich, a poodle also has a defined mode of transport :-P

A leggy mommy and a cozy baby...both enjoying shopping on Mariahilfer Straat

Yep, all you want to do is lose those layers of winter clothing and ride through the streets soaking up the sun

Makes for a great outing with your group of friends...hire bikes and ......go biking

Princess on wheels



Pretty! Isn't it? Absolutely! 

Vienna made for a perfect vacation to chill and to just do nothing specifically. I would like to call it "The perfect city to watch the world go by"!
