IF IT'S TUESDAY: this must be AUSTRIA


I KNOW, I KNOW, IT'S WEDNESDAY, but it is also summer of 1993 and somewhere on the road between Venice and Vienna.




With most of my travel photos I can recall the events of the moment, but with this one the memory has faded, other than it was another day of miles and miles of travel and the only distraction was that little hut pepping me up enough to captures it's image. As you can imagine it was just a flash of a moment passing at high speed, so I was pleasantly surprised when my photos were developed weeks later and here she was - 'Little Hut'. Brought to you today in colour and sepia.

Further along on this same leg, we came to Salzburg. Well we all know what Salzburg is famous for? Yes ladies and gentlemen home to - 'The Sound of Music'.




Oh to see grown adults humiliating themselves by posing in these film locations. Yes there was singing and skipping, the guys included. A strange sight to see. There's obviously no shame when it comes to our childhood memories. So here to jog your's is, a photo of Maria embarking on her journey of discovery.



I have confidence in sunshine

I have confidence in rain

I have confidence that spring will come again

Besides which you see I have confidence in ?

.....confidence in me?!

Love it! I LOVE "The Sound of Music" too so probably could be persuaded to parade round the fountain too - and I am old enough to know better!

Love the photos....the colour/sepia thing is great :)

Quite a capture with the tall mountains, and I can only imagine how all the tourist go crazy in a place like that.

Maya said...

Yes, reminds me of my home land, neighboring Switzerland, and believe it or not I have actually never seen Sound of Music!

Hilarious!!! The dancing, posing singing tourists that is. You're little shack image, now that I love. No riandrops on roses for miles & miles.
Thanks for the smiles.

The sepia one is my favourte! It'd make a nice 'old post card'. Still wandering through all your other posts. Great fun!

I would have loved to have seen the expression on your face watching these embarrassing scenes.
Hopefully no one was wearing their 'Lederhosen' at that time?!

I couldn't stop singing when we visited Saltzburg either. I really miss living in Europe with all those spectacular mountains. What I would do for a view like the top photo, although I might need a slightly bigger (and probably warmer) hut!

This is the second time today I've had to open a post with these words: 'My name is Millie &.....' I hated The Sound of Music! I must be the only person in the world to admit to it, I'm sorry, but it's true. Although many years later, I walked down the arrivals concourse at LAX with Ms. Andrews & her daughter & they were just lovely. A very gracious & stylish bit of work was Jules A.

Love the little hut and well I'm with Millie. Been to Saltzburg and it's funny what one remembers.... it was the dead of winter and my feet were freezing in my boots. Who sight-see's in winter. I did.. it was cheaper! A-M xx
