2020-04-13  INSIDE A CHURCH IN VIENNA

More and more, I see a magic combination with the Sony A7R 2 and the Leica Vario-Elmar 35-70 F4 lens. Though you need a Leica R to E-Mount adapter and have to focus manually, the output is shining. According to Erwin Puts, it is one of the best Leica lenses and one of the cheapest too. It handled the tricky lighting brilliantly in the church.

2020-04-10  EXCURSION WITH MY DAUGHTER

On a Sunday afternoon, my daughter Cara, my wife Karin and I did a more extended walking tour to visit the Otto Wagner church. After a very rough walk up and down the hills, we came to the destination very sweaty. But this didn’t hinder me doing some photo-shots. For the picture I used my Leica M240 with the Leica R Vario-Elmar 35-70 F4 lens and the Leica R to M adapter.

2020-04-08  MAKING THE SCHNITZEL

On the photo is one of the few restaurants where you can watch making a Schnitzel. You get an appetite as you walk past, then you stop to watch the schnitzel makers. Shortly afterward, you sit in the restaurant and order. The restaurant is named “Schaden und Meisel.” But currently closed as all restaurants in Vienna.

2020-04-07  KARLSKIRCHE IN VIENNA

The Karlskirche in Vienna has been photographed thousands of times. Mostly with a tripod placed precisely in front of the church. I chose a different angle, slightly to the side with lighting in the foreground. As I often do with over-photographed sights.

2020-04-05  OUTDOOR SPORTS

Nowadays it got more difficult to do sports. Gyms closed, some take the dusty weight bench out of the basement others go running. Once a day, I catch some fresh air, and even at this time, you can shoot photos.

2020-03-29  LAST WEEKEND BEFORE THE LOCKDOWN

My wife Karin and I were in the “Schwarzes Kameel” for a later afternoon hangout. It was my last photo-session in a restaurant before the lockdown happened. Nowadays, I am out in nature, for pictures of my environment and the nearby forests, which I don’t pay enough attention to otherwise.

2020-03-27  VIENNA EVENING

Searching after new compositions, I came home with a photo of the Albertina Museum shot from the ground level. I always think about what picture to capture, which not represents the touristic motives of the smartphone crowd. However, shooting with a smartphone is ok, but often you try to find the most comfortable way because it’s so easy to take a picture. With the Leica M240, the opposite is true.
