1474 – It’s Like Reaching For The Moon

I’m back in Vienna and here it is cold as well, but no snow has fallen yet.

But then, It’s not that bad. It’s just as time goes by. I could get mad about it, but then, weather won’t care a bit.

It’s late night now and I hear music, or better, I hear recommendations on Amazon.de. Funny, huh? I buy lots and lots of music, and that despite of my loathing for the music industry. But then, it’s the music that I like, not the industry.

As to the images, well, the flower is just a flower. It’s mind-boggling to think of how much the city of Vienna spends on flowers, but on the other hand, I wouldn’t want to miss the flowers in this city.

The other image, … I don’t exactly know what made me take it. It’s just some kind of well-balanced web of cables, and the red light maybe takes on an ominous meaning. The moon, uh … well, you know, I was actually walking and this image was taken in the middle of a busy street. The moon, it was not exactly where I wanted it to be. Initially 🙂

The Song of the Day is “It’s Like Reaching For The Moon” by Billie Holiday. Hear it on YouTube.

  1. Interesting composition, Andreas. I’m sometimes annoyed by powerlines – here, it seems the prettier the location the more likely you are to have a powerstation or at least the lines intersecting the most interesting views. It just means you have to work harder for the shot you may want. Or, you can make them part of it, like you’ve done here. Nice!

    1. Thanks. Sure, there are situations when I’d like them out of my way. In landscapes they can be pretty annoying, but they are really just part of our world, and if we try to stop fighting them (which doesn’t work anyway), there is amazingly often a way to work with them. It’s just a matter of letting it happen.

  2. The little fly of a moon has been trapped by the spider web of power lines. They made its light seem insignificant, compared to the much much closer lights of stop-and-go.
