I have always hear about how beautiful Vienna is. I have often been quite disappointed by cities that others had promised were so wonderful. This was not the case in Vienna. It is an absolutely stunning city. One of the must-see tourist sites and symbols of the city is the Prater Riesenrad (Prater is a large amusement park in the city, Riesenrad means Ferris wheel). It is one of the oldest, used to be the tallest, and is worth a trip around. The lighting at night against the metal structure produces some interesting patterns and I was excited to capture the color.
This is the creepiest photo I have ever taken. I considered posting it during oddities week, but then decided it would be a great Halloween picture. Clowns are often silly and fun, but at the same time can be very creepy. I vividly remember a mean clown coming to one of my early birthday parties.
