I spent New Year’s Eve in the very pleasant company of @blueyedbarb. At midnight we were on Heldenplatz watching the fireworks (and, incidentally, having our ears blown out. God, that was loud!)
I promised to post a few impressions. Here they are.
The fairytale castle in the background is the Rathaus (council house, or city hall).

Oh, and whoever you are, you are very welcome to leave a comment.
@kevay and I spent another pleasant afternoon at the zoo. I have no illusions as to how much I suck at photography, but maybe you would like to have a peek anyway.

I spent the days between Christmas and the New Year in Berlin. The weather was horrible, so I stayed indoors most of the time. That gave me ample opportunity to play with the new camera I got for Christmas in an environment with which I’m as yet totally unfamiliar.
Now that it is getting dark earlier and earlier, I figured I could shoot a few pictures of Vienna by night. I plan to do a few more of these sessions, especially because I love this light and the wonderful contrasts. And it’s an additional benefit that, with an exposure of several seconds, you cannot see people walking through the picture.
