This wine shop in Durnstein, Austria, is situated on a narrow, cobble stoned street that seems as much in the seventeenth century as today

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    Other than being attactive to customers, what I notice most is the apparent trust the merchants have in their patrons. Perhaps all the wine outside has gone bad and is offering it for token prices and that’s why the box is there to collect donations? Just guessing! :-)
