walking after midnight

These are great photos. Talking of a time warp back into the past. They remind me of growing up in Munich in the late 1960s, early 1970s. We used to live in the Altstadt, the old part of town, with all the historic buildings, cobblestone streets, alleys and hallways. Sometimes I miss it. It was a simpler time back then.

Heyo Tina! How are you?! Glad you like me pix.I took them on a recent Saturday night, on a longish walk home. It was actually not midnight yet. Several of the ones I posted here were shot on a funny street called Myrthengasse. I guess that's a place that is mirthful and mythical. Sixteenth District, I think. How's New York and life there for you?

These are nice pics. Ditto the others about the time warp. I think that's one nice thing about living in Europe as compared to the US -- things change so quickly here! Every time we went back to Germany, even after a period of years, it seemed the same, but after only a year or two or three's absence from the US, it was like info overload every time going back.

Thanks, CB. Maybe the US could use more time warp. But I know Austria could use a little more presto chango twenty-first century thinking. Especially when it comes to immigration. And women's rights. And racism. And....
