2019-07-11 BIRTHDAY OF MY WIFE

By |2019-07-10T19:12:51+01:00July 11th, 2019|Vienna|

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

By |2019-06-16T10:46:59+01:00June 17th, 2019|Vienna|

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

By |2019-06-10T20:43:38+01:00June 11th, 2019|Vienna|

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

By |2019-05-26T13:55:03+01:00June 1st, 2019|Vienna|

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

By |2019-05-25T21:56:55+01:00May 29th, 2019|Vienna|

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.

2019-05-21 MY WIFE SHOT WITH THE LEICA

By |2019-05-20T20:27:53+01:00May 21st, 2019|Vienna|

Since I own the Leica M240 I’m inclined to do portrait photos favorably with this camera. Combined with the Summicron 50 F2 lens, it gives you beautiful colors and smooth bokeh. Often I wonder, what to do in post-processing. Pictures are so good, that you can use OOC (out of the camera) more often, then with any other camera, I know.

2019-05-16 ART MUSEUM IN VIENNA

By |2019-05-14T20:39:13+01:00May 16th, 2019|Vienna|

I made this snapshot with my Sony A7R 2 and the Novoflex adapter for Leica M. I used the Elmarit 28mm 2.8 V4 lens, a great companion for the Sony camera. I wondered how excellent the image performance is. No weak points with this combo, however, be aware, that you cannot use autofocus. But with the (red) focus peaking manual focus works flawlessly.

2019-05-14 MY WIFE SHOT WITH THE SONY 135 A-MOUNT

By |2019-05-13T21:06:40+01:00May 14th, 2019|Vienna|

It was a Saturday afternoon at dusk when I was at the roadside with my Sony A7R 2, LA-EA4 adapter and Sony Zeiss 135mm 1.8 lens. The model was my wife, Karin. I wanted to reach a beautiful bokeh, made up of street lights and car headlights.
