2018-04-27   FIACRE IN VIENNA

By | 2018-04-26T19:20:50+00:00 April 27th, 2018|Vienna|

On the left side of the St. Stephen’s Cathedral there is the fiacre parking place. Many tourists choose these vehicles for a tour through the first district in Vienna. For me, it was a nice photo shot during a walking tour in the city.

2018-04-20   AFTER THE BOB DYLAN CONCERT

By | 2018-04-19T21:45:37+00:00 April 20th, 2018|Vienna|

A great concert, a great musician, Bob Dylan. Most of the songs were new interpretations of the old classics like “Desolati0n Raw” or “Tangled up in Blue.” I had some difficulties of understanding the song text because the music was a bit overwhelming in comparison to the singing. Seeing Bob Dylan who started in 1961 and fills the concert halls even in 2018 is a highlight. After the concert I visited a pub in the Wiener Stadthalle and had a cold wheat beer.

2018-04-16   SPRING AND FLOWERS ARE BACK

By | 2018-04-16T17:07:59+00:00 April 16th, 2018|Vienna|

On my Sunday-Nordic-Walking tour with my wife, we took the way through the Türkenschanzpark, a park area with slight hills and little ponds. It dates back to 1683 at the time of the Turkish siege. From that historic battle, the park got its name. At a green hill with blue flowers, I took that photo against the sun. A good feeling, when you can leave your winter clothes at home for the coming months.

2018-04-13   VIENNA PASSAGE

By | 2018-04-14T10:57:40+00:00 April 13th, 2018|Vienna|

On the photo is one of many passages in Vienna which connect two streets. Often when my wife makes a shopping tour, at least looking-tour, I stay outside the shop and take some photos. This time I tried the fantastic Google Pixel 2 XL which is among the smartphones with the best camera and photo software yet. It’s also incredibly fast, good work Google !!

2018-03-24   WARM SUNSET IN VIENNA

By | 2018-03-25T17:58:50+00:00 March 24th, 2018|Vienna|

Intense sunlight tinted the sky in a warm yellow color. The right time for grabbing the camera for a photo shoot. The location was near Schönbrunn Castle. I used the car-sharing service from DriveNow to drive around in Vienna. I got a Mini convertible which adds to the fun factor when exploring the city.

2018-03-17   INDUSTRIAL

By | 2018-03-17T13:43:39+00:00 March 17th, 2018|Vienna|

Abandoned factory buildings which nowadays the owners use for events and rave parties are often good photo motives, different from the standard tourist hot spots. I shot the photo in the blog article in a brewery building in Vienna during a coffee exhibition. There were coffee variants to taste the exotic flavors and brews. For me an opportunity to try my telephoto lens which otherwise stays at home too often.  🙂

2018-03-14   MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY IN VIENNA

By | 2018-03-13T20:21:53+00:00 March 14th, 2018|Vienna|

Although the entry hall and the staircases are looking like a magnificent castle, the showrooms are outdated. I think it was back in the mid-50s when the building of the interior took place. The same is true for the taxidermically prepared animals. However, it has some charm to walk through these rooms with the parquet floors and the glass cabinets. All looks antiquated but artfully.

2018-02-27   LIGHTS AT A BREWERY

By | 2018-02-24T22:37:37+00:00 February 27th, 2018|Vienna|

I was out using my Sony Zeiss 135mm 1.8 lens, which I don’t take with me very often, because of the weight of 1050 g (2.31 lb). I was near at one of Vienna’s oldest breweries, named Ottakringer. These three lamps with their homogenous light cones attracted my attention. Holding my breath and some hand-held night shots were on my camera.

2018-02-21   EXHIBITION IN THE CELLARS

By | 2018-02-20T22:19:00+00:00 February 21st, 2018|Vienna|

The Schlumberger cellars show you the history and production of their renowned champagne. There must have been used millions of bricks to build those massive cellar-vaults. The different stations of the exhibition show barrels, bottles in particular positions for the vinification and some funny exhibits like this bottle on a pedestal, which you can see in the photo.

2018-02-18   SHOP WINDOWS IN VIENNA

By | 2018-02-17T19:52:06+00:00 February 18th, 2018|Vienna|

On one of my evening trips through the inner city of Vienna, I saw that correctly crafted shop windows. Such interior decors differ from the rest and are real art-pieces to look at. Always well for a photo which stands out from the traditional shopping street.
