I was on the way with a hop on – hop off bus when I decided to leave and take a walk by foot. I was near the Commerce Court when I wanted to eat some Nachos with Guacamole. Inside the building with the food court, I saw those interesting lighting which gave a modern touch to that place.
This year I tried to visit the Vienna Auto show early, I have been there at about 9 am. Even at this time there was slow traffic and parking only possible at the third floor and up, so many people. Many new models, like Land Rover Discovery, the new VW Golf, new Ford Edge, Mercedes GLC Coupe, Tesla Model X, I took photos of some exotic ones, which you will not see on the streets very often 🙂 … Bugatti and Rolls-Royce
Since taking photos in the Albertina gallery is forbidden, I smuggled my little Nikon Coolpix A inside, to take some hidden photos 🙂 I think many of the galleries are worried about the flashes, but they don’t know that many cameras can make superior photos without flash, even inside. After my visit I got this nice angle of the Vienna State Opera where I took this nightly shot without tripod.
January morning in Venice, cold, foggy, grey – an atmosphere which describes winter months. I was the second time in Venice in a January and like it most during this time. Not so many people, you don’t have too long lines at the different sights, hotels are a bit cheaper and this nice atmosphere. 🙂
After passing the Gotthard Pass we got hungry and found a place to eat in Andermatt. It’s some kind of ski resort in the winter and you can see intense construction activity in the summer months. After the typical Swiss food we took a little walk through the streets to get fit again for the journey to Lucerne.
Since we heard via radio that there would be a 2 hours waiting time through the Gotthard Road Tunnel we have chosen to take the street over the Gotthard Pass. We were rewarded with a beautiful view of the surrounding valleys and could breath fresh, cool mountain air. And I took time to shoot some photos of the peak…
