I’ve been to Vienna a few times in my life but only for a one day trip (until now). Whenever we would drive by the Prater (it’s an old school amusement park in Vienna), I always wanted to go and hop on the Riesenrad, to observe the city from above. Now, as I’m older, I have a love/hate relationship with heights and to stand in line, actually buy the ticket and get on the Riesenrad was an impulse decision. Why? Because I wanted to take the shot of the whole city. It’s amazing how fear sometimes can get in the way of accomplishing something we really want. The last time I was in one of such things was in Berlin where I literally wanted to jump right out of it. Maybe because I went during nightime.
As you can see, the view from up there is quite astonishing. I am so grateful we had some nice weather that afternoon because it was cloudy and rainy throughout the whole week. Basically, the only sunny moments we had was that afternoon and the morning we were travelling back home. Later on, Marijana took me to the longest street I’ve been on since Berlin (Straße des 17. Juni) which had some amazing depth of field. A photographer’s dream!
On our way home, we took one more stop by the Danube river where, of course, we bumped into vintage bikes and a beautiful sunset. It really was the perfect ending for our eventful day. And, it was only a day one.
