Flak Towers in the Augarten (Vienna)

G-Tower, AugartenFor years I was taking the tram line no. 5 on the way to the university, and I was always amazed by the contrast, that the Jewish private school to the L-tower in the Augarten is producing. This is especially true for the winter time, when the day light is rather low, and lights inside the school are turning the painted windows into a sea of life, where behind the school the monstrous tower is standing. Unfortunately, though several attempts, I have never been able to find the proper light and weather conditions I was waiting for, for the right picture. However, in the last winter I was living in Vienna before leaving, I found one cloudy and snowy day, that perhaps cam closest to what I was looking for, which is why I grabbed my camera and went for a walk in the Augarten …
