Photographer's Note

Here is another half forgotten photo I had kept in my files for three years. It was taken in Vienna in September 2015. I can't see it without getting a feeling that the elderly couple studying their map or guidebook are trying to locate the Stephansdom (St. Stephen's Cathedral), probably the most famous building in the Austrian capital.

Of course I am only having fun at their expenses. I am sure they are just discussing what else to see and how to get there. But when looking for photos from outside the cathedral I was more interested in searching for compositions of this kind, rather than trying to get a more distant view of the entire cathedral. That would probably have been impossible anyway in the narrow streets surrounding the church, and it would certainly have meant getting unwanted cars and tourist groups disturbing the view.

Here is a larger version.

I didn't take any photos inside the cathedral. It was dark and hopelessly crowded, but another exterior view can be seen in the WS.

The Stephansdom dates back to the middle of the 14th century. It's the seat of the Catholic Archbishop of Vienna.

The Map: view shows approximately where I took the main photo.
