Bregenz, Austria, nestles at the foot of Pfander Mountain, on the shores of lovely Lake Constance. The town is well-known for its summer opera festival, Bregenzer Festspiele, but it is the quaint feel of this small town of 27,000 that attract tourists from around the world. We spent hours wandering among Bregenz’s cobblestone streets which is where the images below were created … one painted on an iPad and the other, the same view, taken with a camera. Enjoy seeing how a photographer and an artist see the same scene … differently, yet also similar.
