With a quick glance it’s Kinda hard to figure out the decade in some shots isn’t it?

Vienna shows her classic, unchanging dignity in these shots.

But the cars, bikes, helmets and many other clues reveal the truth.

Jim gives away some more clues, but this tacky ad gives it up completely. Too bad, it’s 2013 and tacky ads are here to stay.

Cheers to you from beautiful old Vienna!

    • The next city I go to, I may try and take a few photos that give us no clues to the timeframe and see if anyone can find something I neglected to notice. The old cities in black and white are eerie. They look like the past moving forward.

  3. That’s my kind of photography – stunning! Love your colour work but there is something very base level about black and white that is quite captivating – these shots are beautiful!

    • Thank you so much. This was my first time trying B/W and I was surprised with the result, especially in Europe where if you are careful you can take a shot and have no clue to the decade, sometimes the century!! I am doing this now in Prague part of the time and like the results and will also try it in Berlin. Thank you for the encouragement!
