Stephansdom at Night

Stephansdom at night – Vienna, Austria

When I accompanied Cindy on a business trip to Vienna, Austria, in 2000, I never dreamed that I would have severe jet lag – to the point that I was wandering around the Innere Stadt in the dead of night, taking lengthy timed exposures with a tripod of Stephansdom without another soul anywhere around me. It was like I had the entire city to myself. Very eerie.

Another reason for being outside at zero dark thirty… cigarette smoke. The building where we were staying absolutely reeked of stale cigarette smoke. I don’t know if that’s still the case today, but back then it seemed like nearly everyone was smoking and the stench permeated through everything – your clothes, the bedding, the furniture, everything. It’s torture for someone like myself that can’t be around tobacco smoke. The only place to get away from it was outside.
