On reflections #2

On reflections #2

I’ve decided to follow yesterday’s entry by returning to our trip to Vienna last year. On the last afternoon of our holiday, there was a heavy rainstorm. We lazed about in our hotel room, but when the rain passed we decided to go for a walk. We strolled along the Danube canal and kept going and going. We arrived at the Urania building – an art nouveau observatory (partially reconstructed after World War 2). I think it’s a stunning building – and you’ll see more of it here soon.

From this angle, I really liked the colourful graffiti beneath the building. However, my primary interest was in the reflection in the puddle. The blue sky after the rain provided a contrast to the striking monochrome of Urania.

Like many photos, it captures a memory for me, as well as an image.

(Other, similar images can be found on my Flickr site – if you’re interested.)
