This picture is a spot on (and somewhat ironic) representation of Vienna. All around the world, this Austrian city is famous for its historic glory and old-fashioned ways, for the bygone times of emperors and musical geniuses. Its residents are commonly considered to be traditional, nostalgic, and maybe a little bit grumpy.
This image brings both of these worlds together: Vienna’s famous Schönbrunn Palace and park in all its splendor – and a guy in classic “Vienna mode.“ Dressed in slouchy pants and ambling through the park, he does not even seem to register the superb sundown and nearby castle – or anyone else around him. At the same time, he is living the good life of Vienna: Savoring the moment, surrounded by impressive history. To me, this is Vienna in a nutshell.
