Architecture Old and New

Wandering around Vienna, I tipped my head back to see all the glorious architecture and then tried to capture it on camera. It’s hard to take good pictures of buildings from the ground, but that didn’t stop me from trying.

This crazy apartment building, designed by artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser and built in the early 1980s, is off the beaten path. That didn’t stop the many tourists from coming by to gawk.
