jugendstil rainbow


As far as summer goes, we've had some pretty disappointing weather lately: chilly temperatures, plenty of rain followed by thunderstorms in the evenings. Today we had crazy weather: rain, sun, rain, sun, rain, sun, rain...which inevitably resulted in ....a rainbow! I saw this one as I was walking up the street from the tram stop to my apartment this evening. It's actually the second rainbow I've seen this week! (Pictures of the first one didn't turn out so well). The house is one of the many jugendstil houses in my neighborhood that I had been planning on showcasing at some point, and today just turned out to be a perfect day for that.

That house is magnificent, and the rainbow is too--such a beautiful moment you've caught!

The picture is just beautiful.

Very nice. It's as if the house has an aura all it's own. It's like the rainbow and the house were whispering "take our picture".

Rainbow is gorgeous and the old buildings are beautiful too, Ainz. Pity about the weather but then if you have all 4 seasons in one day, you are considered blessed.
