2017-05-22  TRAIN LIKE IN A WESTERN

In my childhood days, the westerns were my favorites; I liked John Wayne, Burt Lancaster, and Robert Mitchum. This train in Huntsville, Canada with the train driver reminded me of these movies, also the railway station where the train took off, had that flair. I think I should go now and have a look if Netflix has “Rio Bravo”  🙂

2017-05-21  MASKS IN VENICE

Besides the unique architecture, the canals, the water buses, for what things does Venice stand for: the gondolas, the Murano glass and the masks of the Carnival. I entered a costume shop, and it was overwhelming, thousands of masks in all sizes, colors, and characteristics. Some look a little bit scary, some anonymous, some cover the half face, and others got surrounded by feathers. I have never been there at the Carnival, but once I should be. 🙂

2017-05-20  VIENNA TOWN HALL STREET LIGHTS

The Styria festival brought me to the town hall of Vienna. Some friends and my wife were with me; we tried the Styrian white wine name Grauburgunder, excellent, tastes like Chardonnay. Then the night has already arrived, and I took some high-ISO shots, like that with the street lights on a footpath up to the town-hall, a high building.

2017-05-19  CN TOWER IN TORONTO BY NIGHT

At my tripod “excursion” on the “swimming pool – rooftop” of the Toronto Radisson Blue hotel, I caught this night shot of the CN Tower. Beside of some water showers, I got on my back and feet, from people jumping into the pool,  🙂  it was a great shooting experience where I shot some night photos of Toronto. Since there was a second photographer with the same intention in mind, I had to share some space, but it was enough room and time to get what we wanted. 🙂

2017-05-18  ROCKS BETWEEN SNOW

After lunch at an alpine chalet, we did an outside walk through the valley on a mountain plateau near Filzmoos. There was about 1.5/5 m/f of snow at the wayside, some rocks loomed out of the snow beds, on the horizon a mountain range. The sun berthed against the clouds, a real nature spectacle. A good place for starting shooting with my Sony A7R II. 🙂

2017-05-17  THE ROCK OBSERVATION DECK IN NEW YORK

There are two great observation decks in New York, the Empire State Building, and the Rockefeller Center Deck. The Empire State is a bit higher, 86th floor, 320/1050 m/f compared to the Rockefeller “Top of the Rock” with 67th to the 70th floor, 259/850 m/f. On the Empire you are more in the center of Manhattan, the Rock shows you the central park if you look north. And the cool thing, both have outside decks. 🙂

2017-05-16  WOODLAND FROM METAL

Red crystals, stainless steel trunks, steel wool – ingredients for a woodland? In the Swarovski Crystal World, this phenomenon exists 🙂 , designed by contemporary artists like Cao Perrot, Kwangho Lee and others; you will visit an area full of inspiration and modern chic. I lost my companions two times minimum because I was so busy taking photos. I would plan minimum half a day for this great experience.

2017-05-15  MOSQUE IN ISTANBUL II

After taking off my shoes at the signed area at the entrance of the mosque, I went in and was astounded again of the atmosphere and the architectural artworks. I was entirely free to take my photos. And I noticed how many believers were inside during the day, compared to the Christian churches, which are most of the time empty if there are no holy masses.

2017-05-14  THE YELLOW MEADOW

Last weekend we made a trip with our Vespa to the “Lainzer Tiergarten,” a big area of greeneries and wood and some free-living boars and deer. With my luck, I didn’t see any animals, my wife saw a snake, but only for some seconds. 🙂 This meadow with thousands of dandelions was an eye-catcher, and one of the dozens of photos I took.

2017-05-13  RIVER IN TICINO WITH OVERSIZED GRAVEL

This River in Ticino, Switzerland, was a refreshing experience. The water was cold, there were even warning signs, that this cold water could harm your health if you have problems with your bloodstream. I waded through the river, water only until knee height, my lower feet got numb immediately. 🙂 The stones which were spread all over the river looked like oversized gravel stones. 🙂
