Now we go to the 15th district, Rudolfsheim-Fünfhaus.
We see the historic

Tramway Remise Rudolfsheim

The two buildings go back to 1901-1903.
Under the Western building there are walls of the old horse-drawn railway remise.







In the backyard of the remise




For special purpose ;-)







Tourists who are interested in trams can leave the tram No. 58 on their way
to Schönbrunn and take a look at the remise - it's just beside the tram station
before the Technical Museum.
In the right hall: Mind the gap! ;-)
Today I walked the whole area, but I suppose they are not amused when
they see people walk directly into the halls, so I kept out.

Now something special: While waiting for the tram today I saw blossoms
in "Hamerlingpark", 8th district.
I went nearer and discovered that there were rose blossoms in winter!!



This pic is especially for Ruth, who hopefully takes a look in here sometimes.
Mail will reach you during next week. Hopefully. I'm so busy with
my photography at the moment - nearly exhausted a little bit... ;-)

By the way - does anyone here know the name of this rose that gives
us blossoms in winter?

I like it too, often leave the tram there when I'm on my way to Schönbrunn.

By the way, I'm planing to show here pics of Vienna's Technical Museum
and collections of other museums in town. Can take a little time, but will come.

Thank you, Jane! I live in the 8th district, and in about 10 minutes
I am at Ringstrasse in the 1st district - one of my favourites because
of the parks and the old buildings.
Portrait of my home district will come soon.

But first Schönbrunn again, pics taken on a day with dense fog -
and I loved it! ;-)


Schönbrunn in the fog - Part 1


The first three pics are taken in Hietzing (near the U4 and at
the tram station on Kennedy Bridge):










In the park: Jogging into nowhere... ;-)




"Witches Way" ;-)




This medusa shield you have already seen in bright sunshine,
but the fog brings more mysterious touch into the scene...




Fog at it's best.
One would not be astonished if Dracula would come right around the corner... ;-))

Beauty can be found everywhere - for those who have eyes to see...




This plant seems to have buds which will open soon:

Schönbrunn in the fog - Part 3





This reflection fascinates me every time... ;-)







At the entrance stands a golden "Mozart" who is joking with the visitors. ;-)










In the fog the lion looks extra arrogantly... ;-)




On the way home near the tramstation in Hadikgasse:

A very beautiful collection of photos. I think we are now due some cold weather here in Britain too.....it's been abnormally warm or the time of year. Such weather is always good for photography.

I love the white marble statues, they're beautiful. It presents the standard of beauty of the past - fantastic.

Thank you, Jane! For me besides fog the best weather for photography has to do with attractive clouds. One of my most preferred light situations is sun in the foreground, upcoming thunderstorm in the background... ;-)

In Schönbrunn you can find many of those beautiful statues, Abid. I too adore them and take pictures of them very often.

My next plan is to show you my home district.
I have more than 100 pics, so this "project" will take me some time. ;-)

Again I thank everyone for commenting and 'liking" my pics!

Not many tourists take time to visit Vienna's 8th district, which in my eyes
is a pity. "Josefstadt", my home district, is a very little, quiet and sometimes
nostalgic one. I have been living here all my life.
Josefstadt is densely built and has only two little green areas, the "Hamerlingpark"
and the "Schönbornpark". Luckily there are many green backyards which
spend good air with their trees.

As I walked around in the last two days, it was like discovering my home
district new. I was surprised how many beautiful old housedoors we have. ;-)

Mainly I will show you streets, buildings (focus on older houses), portals, shops. I hope you enjoy this!


Portrait of my home district - Josefstadt Part 1


We begin our walk near the beautiful Breitenfelder Church,
which was built in the style of the Lombardic Early Renaissance,
as Wikipedia tells us. ;-)




The rectory with a statue of Mary and the Child is on the other side of the street.




This nice dog which in Vienna warns the owners of dogs of punishment
when they don't remove the xxx of their four-legged friends here has been
changed into a little piece of art by some people. Very nice!




The first of many wonderful portals which will come in the next sets.
Not all of them will be commented.
This one is on Bennoplatz (Bennoplace).










This two figures flank the entrance to a Pub which was an India Restaurant
before, and before this - a Pizzeria? I don't remember any more. ;-)
The small building in the background is great.




One of the many quiet and beautiful smaller streets of Josefstadt
with houses and portals like this:
