Wiener Riesenrad, originally uploaded by Thomas Robert Clarke Photography, LLC.
"Look down there. Tell me. Would you really feel any pity if one of those dots stopped moving forever? If I offered you twenty thousand pounds for every dot that stopped, would you really, old man, tell me to keep my money, or would you calculate how many dots you could afford to spare? Free of income tax, old man. Free of income tax - the only way you can save money nowadays." 

 Orson Welles' iconic character Harry Lime delivered these lines while looking down from high atop the Riesenrad in the 1949 film noir classic The Third Man. While in Vienna for our honeymoon my wife indulged my desire to visit some of the locations that were pivotal in the movie. The ferris wheel she loved, the sewer is a whole different story!
