2018-10-25   THE PERFECT STOCK OF CHAMPAGNE

By | 2018-10-24T20:42:03+00:00 October 25th, 2018|Vienna|

Built from millions of bricks, the big cellars of Schlumberger stock thousands of bottles of finest champagne. I went from cellar-vault to cellar-vault, placed the tripod and shot the arcs and walls. The exhibition areas were beefed up with lightning, bottles, and stories of the wine-fermentation. And the good thing, tripods were welcomed, that’s not often the case.

By | 2018-09-09T18:32:29+00:00 September 19th, 2018|Vienna|

Between the Vienna Ring Road and the Inner City there lies a park named Volksgarten. Historic buildings and some bars and restaurants surround the area. The museum Albertina is near, the State Opera also. You will find some compositions for your photo gallery, particularly in the blue and golden hour.

2018-09-12   MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY LOBBY

By | 2018-09-09T10:28:05+00:00 September 11th, 2018|Vienna|

The Museum of Natural History in Vienna has the ambient of a magnificent castle of ancient times. The decoration and interior architecture is an art for itself, beginning from the art-deco floors to the crested pillars and up to the dramatic ceilings. Though the exhibitions appear more old school with outdated cabinets, the building is a marvel and worth to visit.

2018-08-29   CRUISING ON THE DANUBE CANAL

By | 2018-08-27T22:33:54+00:00 August 28th, 2018|Vienna|

Beside the different well-known sights in Vienna, it’s a good idea to jump on one of the cruising ships on the Danube Canal and have a good time cruising between graffitis, historic buildings and modern architecture. Some bridges will have artful parapets; you will see bike lanes, Hundertwasser-garbage recycling plant and modern hotels like the Sofitel Vienna.

2018-07-28   STAIRWAY IN VIENNA

By | 2018-07-28T13:55:59+00:00 July 28th, 2018|Vienna|

Since mostly I have a camera with me, even when I am walking around for fun, it happens that I get surprising snapshots. I saw that couple going down the stairway and liked the scenery with the embedded church and the steep houses around. I took that photo and had one more in my vast collection of city shots.

On the photo you can see the main entrance to the Museum Quarter in Vienna. Inside you can see the Egon Schiele exhibition in the Museum Leopold. On the museum plaza, there are some hip bars and restaurants and dozens of plastic seats in violet color for chilling out.

2018-07-14   VIENNA STATE OPERA

By | 2018-07-14T16:08:24+00:00 July 14th, 2018|Vienna|

The illumination of the Vienna State Opera (“Staatsoper”) is one of the top photo spots. The location is between the Kärntner Straße and the Opernring, that’s the ultimate city center. There you are near to the Volksgarten, the Museum of Natural History and the Kunsthistorisches Museum. Even the shopping mile Mariahilfer Straße is only some hundred meters away.

The photo shows a stairway up to more cellars in the Schlumberger cellar-exhibition in Vienna. There are dozens of vaults with millions of bricks. I recommend a visit during the summer months; it’s refreshingly cool inside.

Visiting the Museum of Natural History in Vienna (Naturhistorisches Museum Wien) brings you vast photo opportunities. The building and interiors are built like a castle, marble ornaments, and many artfully created sculptures, big arcs, and pillars.

2018-05-29   SILVER SHOP WINDOW IN VIENNA

By | 2018-05-28T21:31:49+00:00 May 29th, 2018|Vienna|

Though I don’t own any silver plates I like watching it through shop windows. Those artfully decorated accessories combined with the lightning gave a beautiful photo motive. I took that picture with my Google Pixel II XL which I sometimes use as a substitute for my mirrorless camera.
