2019-11-12 SUNDAY EVENING

On Sunday, I tried a new camera/lens combination. I took my Sony A7S, the Gobe e-Mount to Leica R adapter, and the Leica Vario-Elmar R 35-70 F4 lens. It’s essential to get the right manual focus with the focus peaking function. When the focus is on, it’s getting a very nice combination for all lighting conditions. As thanks for my wife, I went to a Sunday afternoon tea. We chose a hotel on the Ringstraße in Vienna.

2019-10-13 RUNNING AND GRAFFITI

In Vienna, a kilometer-long graffiti zone has developed along the Danube Canal. At times I go there cycling or walking and photographing the artful walls with runners in action.

2019-09-15 DANUBE CANAL IN VIENNA

A sidearm of the river Danube flows through the city center of Vienna. You can choose many bridges to place your tripod for long exposure shots. I would recommend the bridge near the Schwedenplatz; here the view is bright. I was traveling with a group. Soon we were surrounded by interested spectators after we had placed our tripods. Anyway, then we continued with our photo session.

2019-07-11 BIRTHDAY OF MY WIFE

At my wife Karin’s birthday we visited the open-air roof-top bar of the Ritz Carlton in Vienna. After we sat down on the couch and ordered the drinks, it started to rain. We flew under some umbrellas, where a waiter suggested to change the location to the ground floor bar. The ambiance was very nice, and I used the situation to take out my Leica and made some birthday photos.

2019-06-25 MAKING A DATE

The night is young. After the sausage stand the girlfriends are called and the clubs for the night are identified. Then jumping into the Uber taxi and the first location is approached.

2019-06-17 PORTRAIT WITH LIGHTS

At times I persuade my wife Karin to take photo sessions. As long as their patience persists, I make experimental portraits with different lighting effects in the background. More and more, I like portrait-pictures, where the background brings some excitement or cool effects.

2019-06-11 SILENCE ON A SUNDAY EVENING

Sundays afternoon are more silent than the other days in the week when evening approaches. A good synonym is the quiet river Wien with the yellow glowing lanterns. This is the typical evening atmosphere on Sunday evenings in Vienna.

2019-06-02 MY DAUGHTER ON THE ROOFTOP BAR

There are rare moments when I am on a rooftop bar with my daughter. I used the opportunity to take a photo with my Leica M-240. I nailed the focus relatively fast and got a beautiful picture with the smooth bokeh of the Summicron F2 50mm lens.

2019-06-01 NO, THAT’S NOT AMSTERDAM

In Vienna, I see more and more hemp-stores growing rapidly. The store’s location on the photo is the first district, where rental fees are very high. So it must be a good business. Since THC is not legal by now, most of the products are CBD-based. I tried a CBD-cake and can tell you very relaxing.

2019-05-29 GLAMOUR MANNEQUINS

The Swarovski store on the Kärtner Straße in Vienna represents itself with artfully crafted windows decorations. In a glamour-style, the mannequins show the high-level outfits, which should be the analogy to the famous Swarovski crystals. I think they change the ornaments at least quarterly, so always a good reason to have a look.
