I still owe you my last installment from the short stay in the Voraralberg province in Austria.

Last stop was in Bregenz, the main city of the region, located at the south east point of the Bodensee, near the borders of Germany ans Switzerland.

No nice mountain views this time, just a few touristic snapshots from our walk there.

B1 St. Nepomuk Kapelle, a small round gothic church



B2 A look inside



B3 Garage, ready for green cars to come



B4 Cafe restuarant



B5 Herz Jesu church



B6 Also here a look inside



B7 The pulpit



B8 The old gate from "Oberstad" (the old town up the hill)



B9 Wall decoration in Oberstad



B10 Typical architecture from "Oberstad"



B11 The smallest house in Europe



B12 Only 57cm wide... (closed unfortunatley)



B13 The harbour



B14 Tunnelview on the Bodensee



B15 Probably the most pictured place



B16 View on the Bodensee from the top of the Pfänder (had hoped for a better and clearer view)


That's it !
Thanks for looking, your patience and comments!

We have had Austria on our short list for a long time now. Perhaps it is time to follow in your footsteps!

A superb set. Colourfull and nicely composed. Great stuff Fred!

In 2004 we have been on the Pfander aswell.
Same view. Same weather. Same foggedup view.
It was the time of the first digital camera's and I looked up the pictures to make sure I was talking about the same place.
We walked our way back down that day. That was a lovely walk.
Great to see these pictures and it gave me a trip back on memory lane.

so envious of your subjects! great stuff and you depicted them so well!!!
(although I bet the A99's dynamic range was a great help too? ).
outstanding job, Fred!
it has been great travelling with you! (hoping you'll dig up some more though? ).
(my guess w/b they'll pick #14 to show us again on friday? ;-)
many favourites for me!).

Thanks all!

@ snegren: I can recommend it, but beware, many foorsteps of us there
We managed to walk approx 10km per day in Budapest and Austria.

@ Jetspace: We walked only half up and down, it was pretty warm those days.

@ angora: dynamic range was certainly helpful. I haven't compared A99 m1 and m2 myself yet, but should do that some day.
There is more, which will appear in due course.
I learned not to speculate on the Friday exhibition. Sometimes I felt I would have a fair chance but inclusion wasn't there. Other times I found myself included as a total surprise. It's hard to get in the judges mind apparently

Lovely scenes from this place, Fred!

My favorites are #7, #10 and #14 - good to have these special - IMO - images in the set! It seems that there are no modern buildings in this town - but I remember a very modern art museum where they showed the work of photographer Candice Breitz when I visited.

TFS!

Thanks Harald. We have seen the modern building, but I didn't like it and did not make time to visit the museum. We were more in the mood of traditional architecture.
