Multicoloured… but better in B&W

Multicoloured… but better in B&W

In Vienna, I stumbled across this memorial to the Soviet Army, who liberated Vienna from the Nazis. It’s not an aspect of history that I’m familiar with, so I’ll refrain from commenting on it.

What fascinated me was the fountain (which is not part of the memorial). At night, the fountain is illuminated with different colours. Despite many efforts to capture the colourful display, I feel that the black and white version is the best image. Maybe it has a more sombre, subdued feel that seems fitting. Also, the best of my coloured version featured the fountain with red lighting, which seemed like a bit of a cliche with the Red Army memorial in the background.

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