Tucked below the headlines of terror yesterday was another sad note, from a very uplifting life. Charmain Carr, the actress who played Liesl in The Sound of Music, has died. For all of us who love the movie, or love the story and spirit of the real von Trapp family, or love the city of Salzburg– and this must surely include a lot of us– this news is sure to prompt a moment of reflection.
I offer a small tribute here: photos of Salzburg and the Villa Trapp in a muted sepia.

Wonderful. Thank you. Was so sad to hear of her passing. Of course I had a massive crush on her in high school, and a love for the movie. BTW, Heather Menzies, Louisa, attended my high school.
Thank you. How interesting that you have a little connection to the cast– always fun!
Oh my the photos of Saltzburg bring back good memories, very nice.
Great town. One of our favorites–interesting place, incredible city and history, and still small enough to have an intimate feel.
I’ve been to Salzburg, but for some reason I never got to see all the Sound of Music filming locations (even though it’s one of my favourite movies!), so it was nice to live vicariously through your pictures. The graveyard looks especially lovely.
The graveyard is splendid– especially given the way to huddles up next to the cliffs with the fortress.
One of my favorite cities in the world. So beautiful.
Gorgeous pictures – Salzburg looks great in sepia! Love the city and we did the Sound of Music tour a few years ago – loved that too, I’m such a fan of the movie and the Von Trapp story.
Thanks. We love the city too. It’s so beautiful (both the city and the environs) and has a great history, and because it’s not huge it just feels really accessible. I’m getting Salzburg -withdrawal pangs just thinking about it!
If given the chance my huMom would have re-inacted the scene as well.
3 bum swings! 3 more!
Charmain Carr will live on in our hearts & memories.
Beautiful photos and you have a lovely blog.
Thank you very much. Thanks for stopping by!
What a lovely tribute in photos.
Thank you– and thanks for stopping by!
Great sepia to give a feel of old world beauty!
