2013-05-29 This worker had spent the day giving the large sluice gates on the Neue Donau a spring cleaning. Dirty, hard, wet, cold work. [The gates are usually closed - opened in times of flooding of the Danube] I decided to keep the colors muted in an attempt to reflect his mood. Critiques welcome.
[P.S. I found someone else's picture of the entire weir - you can see where I was standing: http://www.pcd-zt.at/admin/projekte/images/23/20070327054131Donauinsel_wehr2_gr.jpg]
2013-05-17 In a Viennese park. A nice way to spend a sunny spring day.
Hear ye! Hear ye! The Medieval Fair season has begun.
2013-05-05 Seen yesterday at a small fair in Marchegg, Austria. Its first year, so no big crowds and the German "professional" medievalists were still at their fairs in Germany. This troubadour sang well (in Middle High German as well as modern German), played at least four different instruments, and entertained.
Thanks for the comments on my shot of idyllic Lake Neusiedl
