Sepia Saturday; Josef and Anna;

This wedding has taken place in 1931 in Austria. My mothers brother Josef born 1909 and his bride Anna born 1910. Anna is wearing a white dress but not a veil. The basket with the flowers is a nice touch and there is also the ubiquitous fur on the floor.
I did not know them very well. I visited them a few time when I was a child with my mother. I remember them as friendly and loving. Anna always at her sewing machine. Josef died in 1980 and Anna a year later. They had four children.

Joy... and sadness;

Summer has arrived!

On Saturday we went to the QPAC Concert Hall.
It was a wonderful production from the Maestro Series.

We listened to Beethoven Symphony No 9 in D minor Choral movement 1-3

Bernd Alois Zimmermann; And turning then I saw the great injustice that is done under the heavens.

The concert ended with Beethoven Symphony No 9 movement 4.

B.A. Zimmermann had no optimism left and took his own life.

Sunday was the Christmas market at the Eco village which is situated opposite from our home.
At four PM we went over and had a look at all the homemade products. We ate a grilled sausage and I bought a shopping bag made of vintage cotton. It is washable and so much prettier then the plastic one available from the super markets. That was our weekend.
