Spicy Gratings

Orange is a popular color in home furnishings throughout Austria—it provides visual warmth during the winter. However, when I saw these two painters applying bright orange paint to Vienna's Hofburg Palace, my first reaction was that this was quite daring. I liked the reflected sunlight on the one painter's hand and I thought the nearby sign touting "Spicy Mexican Whopper" somehow fit the new color scheme. While walking by this same window a few days later, I realized this is simply a primer for the usual black paint.
