Back in 1985 I was part of a college trip to Europe on the way to an archaeological dig in Jerusalem. As best as I can recall, these photos were taken in Mattsee, Austria.

It appears I took these “human studies” from a hotel window as I watched the locals going about their business. And one of them was watching me!

Photos attached include the original or similar frames as well as some artsy post-processing.

If anybody knows the guy with the camera, I'd love to see the photo of me he took ;-) The neighborhood is shown in the colorized street scene.

Thanks Allan! This was an old woman. She was feeding the pigeons (probably birdseed).

I seemed to have been intrigued by this... We discovered European cities shut down at 5 or 6pm so I guess I was bored!

Apologies to Austria! This was actually taken from the Hotel Strauss in Wurzburg Germany! You can see the days (sample below) were just a blur...
