Vienna's Water By the ;middle of the 19th century Vienna had many epidemics of typhoid and cholera from polluted water.  A 95 km long pipeline was built to fetch fresh mountain water from the Rax and Schneeberg mountains south of Vienna.  The system, which runs by gravity, was finished in 1873, and now carries some 220,000 cubic meters of water daily - about half of Vienna's  water.  The pipeline is carried in aqueducts over valleys and in tunnels through the hills.  There are three aqueducts inside Vienna itself.   This one is in the 23rd district.  They were totally renovated 2007-2011.
Sept.18.  If you look closely you will see that there is a bird (cormorant) on nearly every post in the water.
17.09.14 - Shadows and Ghosts  Another shot from my Tuesday evening guided photo walk, and a regular subject, although I usually use a slightly different window for the reflecton and use a landscape orientation to get a wider view. I use this location to encourage people to look harder to find interesting perspectives. It is also useful to illustrate how slightly slow shutter speeds turn moving people into ghostly shadows.
Fun on the carousel.  I've never seen a portable carousel this old. Hindsight tells me I should have gotten images of the larger ride but I was more interested in the people.
I usually tend to be more of a sunRISE person but lately, the sunsets have been gorgeous. This was the view of the Nemasket River just after sunset. There was a little river otter swimming around too but because of the low light and necessary slow shutter speed, he was all blurry. So I had to lop him out of the scene.

Pastel Storms  Sept 18 Looming storm clouds at dusk created interesting colors and patterns.
Sept 18 - Cabbage In The Garden  I took this image from my sister's garden.  Thanks so much for your comments on my Aspen Row image I posted yesterday.  They are always much appreciated.
" I huffed and I puffed,,,,,"  Yesterday was gorgeous so another from my walk in the neighborhood.    post for 19/09/14
Grand Manan Island Coastline Posted Sept. 18, 2014  I"m still working on my Maritime images from last year. I thought this one worked well in b/w. Critiques are most welcome.
Joe Smith of the Los Angeles Angels pitching in relief...  Blue Jays 7, Angels 8 July 9, 2014  Angel Stadium Anaheim, CA  This winds up my short series on the Angels vs Blue Jay ball game. As I already mentioned, I was invited by a friend and we had great seats! With that being said, knowing what I know now, seats between 3rd base and home plate would have provided a better angle and the foul ball screen wouldn't have been in the way (focusing through it was a real challenge, for me anyway).   Thanks again for your views, comments and support, much appreciated! Critiques welcome...  18 September 2014
I waited for 6 months for the sun to go down in the midle of the road. Fortunately it did not rain that day. I brought a boy with me to wave good night to the sun.  Suddenly I saw the birds comming from the left, and got them in "the decive moment".
Shot with all natural light, no retouching.
Duck on a Pond: My office is located in a large office park which is dotted with several ponds / lakes which vary in size. Every day I pass by this lake on my way into work...I always slow down a bit to see if there's anything worth shooting. About a week ago this rubber ducky appeared in the pond. I chuckle every time I see it. I'm off on a 3 day weekend to the White Mountains - Have a nice / safe weekend - See you Monday!!!!  09/19/2014
