I snapped this on the way to work one morning a couple of weeks ago from the bridge from our island, over the Jahninsel, and across to the Unterer Wöhrd.
We found this guy waiting for us out in the cold at the Adventsmarkt im Katarinenspital. His name is Barny and he’s a Romanian Dwarf Donkey. As we were leaving to warm up back in our apartment, he let out a wail that made everyone stop in their tracks. That was the most sorrowful thing I’ve ever heard at a Christmas market.
This guy might have been drunk — he was interrupting his own shtick to bark out commands at passersby snapping his picture (but not me).
Sort of a self-portrait, snapped on the edge of the Lucreziamarkt on Haidplatz. I would have missed the shot but for our guests for the weekend, who pointed it out.
