"Vienna is different"

"Vienna is different", is the traditional advertisement of the tourism industry in the Austrian capital

"Vienna is different", is the traditional advertisement of the tourism industry in the Austrian capital

I walk through Baeckerstraße towards the city center and think to myself, really true, Vienna is different. I now recognize the Viennese by the way they walk - or should I say: the way they don't walk?

In many big cities it's different They don't have time to arrive in their own steps. They are already one step further before the next step is taken. At the same time, they check on their cell phones for the arrival of the next subway, swear, postpone their appointments, wave to a cab - one always before the other is finished. That is what makes up this permanent state of suspense - none of it in Vienna. Nobody is really in a hurry on Baeckerstraße,
I pass by the Karlskirche, see the reflection, take some pictures, go in the direction of the Cafe Museum where Mr. Walter, Vienna's best waiter, waves to me in a friendly, questioning manner. This means, without words: "Why are you in such a hurry?"

"Vienna is different"

thanks for looking

Well seen and taken Oliver . The two eyes that appear at the top of the middle tower gives out the appearance of a third eye .Similar to those I have seen on
Buddhist temples . I would love to experience and discover Vienna’s difference one day Oliver
Best regards

Very lovely reflection Ollie. You've become like the people of Vienna. You slowed down and watched. Or maybe that's where you're from. I love this anyway.

This looks like an amazing place.
The reflections just add that little something extra that many would walk past without a second look.

It must be a quite wonderful city to live in. This image is a beautiful interpretation of it. I can almost hear the waltz music in the background.
