A walk around Vienna - the sequel !

Hi!

I finally got around to shooting some more photos of Vienna. This time I stayed pretty much within the confines of the touristy inner city. However, I saw very few out-of-towners and most of the grumpy locals thwarted all my lame attempts at street photography and quickly hurried out of the picture.

Here are some of my exploits. I hope you can still enjoy them, even though Vienna has already been covered on this forum in great depth and very high quality.

Yes, once again Vienna is looking very good! You dealt extremely well with the dark and grey weather conditions, compliments!

Thanks guys. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Does anyone else have problems with loading the pictures? Apparently some imageshack servers are not responding. This has been going on since the time I posted the thread.

I can't see pic #15, the others load fine. And despite the miserable weather the pics are great. The snow is fine, but I prefer the city in the summer heh, not so wet.

Gorgeous city!

Vienna looks beautiful even with this crapy weather!

A must-visit place, no doubt about it! It's in my Top10!

Thanks for sharing, snowman! Your pics are really nice!

Thanks everyone!

An overcast day can actually work in your favor, especially when it comes to street scenes or architecture. Quite a few shots would have been much more challenging in bright sunlight. I could have done without the bits of snow constantly falling from rooftops, though.

cheers,
snowman

Nice update! Vienna is certainly a great city and I do rather envy one of my friends who is moving back there in about a year and a half.

I took another walk exploring some of the areas very few tourists ever get to see. This time I didn't even get halfway through before it started to rain.
