I think we never have come home with a more odd mix of photos of shop windows content than we did from our Vienna trip in September.

The photo above were just colorful enough to catch our interest. When hubby did take the photo we didn’t even notice what was in the store… (yeah, sure!)

This photo below were taken because I saw that the background were reflected in the window, but it wasn’t until we came home I saw that it almost looks like it is hovering in the air.


Hubby did take a photo of this window higher up in a building, because the figurines at the side of the windows are casting interesting eyes at the half nekkid shop window mannequin. *giggles*


I really don’t have any idea why hubby took this photo of an almost empty shop window – and the dress doesn’t even fit her that well. Maybe he thought it would fit me better…?


Something that did surprise me: what on earth were Pinocchio doing in Vienna? And nowadays? I thought he were long forgotten by now?


Though we did manage to get a couple of more normal photos of souvenir windows too. As you can see there is some beer cans – which we didn’t buy even though we do love beer.


We’ll rather spend our money on more trips instead of souvenirs, so we try to resist the temptation, though we do fail sometimes even if it’s seldom.

Of course Mozart were involved here too, after all, we were in Vienna!


I should have bought that fan above because it were so hot when we were there, it would have been heavenly.

This is perhaps the most known Mozart image since it’s also on the delicious Mozart kugelen (balls) chocolate.


You can see the reflection of me in Mozart if you look in his face. Or is it the opposite? I’ve always wished that there were a bit of Mozart talent in me… *giggles*

    Couple of drinks, cap’n, and everyone has a bit of Mozart inside. The alcohol just brings it out. :)

    Love the gown!
    I’m with you on souvenirs. I think they take up room, need to be dusted and cost too much. Give me another trip!
    Like a cruise of the Greek Islands, maybe?

    I just imagine the fat russian women at the beach with triple or quatruple bellies wearing this underwear, that would be something for WW ! I have never ever (not even in the States) seen such fat women ! they needed two chairs to sit !

    How come you are in most windows, and Mr Lifecruiser in only one?
    We need to go to Wien (Vienna) to check out if you are still there.

    Great reportage and photos.

    All fun to look at, especially the one with the two glaring statues looking in. When I was in Belgium live women prostitutes sat in windows selling themselves. And I took some photos in Germany of a billboard ad with a topless woman in it because you would never get that here.

    Hi there Cruiser,
    Wow these are all awesome. But you have to admit that the reflection of the mannequin in corset, reflecting in the building, is really a fabulous and unique shot.

    I kept seeing your site link in my history and just simply had to drop by and see what you had been up to.

    And as always it was a lovely visit! :smile:

    Ha ha! Pinocchio is also in Germany, Captain. Apparently Germany and Austria have a thing for wooden toys who want to become real boys. :lol:

    Very good pictures. I really enjoyed them. Especially the picture of the girl with her back to us between the stony guys; but also the underwear display with the horseback rider reflected on top of the building across the street. Very good eye. The Mozart windows brought home the commercialism of Austria. There is almost a Japanese perfection to the first Mozart display window. Post more!
