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Although the entry hall and the staircases are looking like a magnificent castle, the showrooms are outdated.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.

2018-02-12   MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY

By | 2018-02-12T21:14:06+00:00 February 12th, 2018|Vienna|

Some weeks ago I met with my brother and his girlfriend to visit a photography exhibition named “Mustangs in the wildlife,” presented by photographer Peter Baumann. I took the opportunity to make some shots from the museum halls, which represents a style like in magnificent castles. Taking the handrail of the balcony as a tripod replacement ensured that I could use low ISO in the dim lit rooms.

2018-01-27   VIENNA KOHLMARKT

By | 2018-01-27T12:11:40+00:00 January 27th, 2018|Vienna|

Kohlmarkt, one of the more expensive shopping streets in Vienna. It connects the “Graben” and the “Hofburg.” All streets in this circle are a pedestrian area, so it’s always good for a short walk to look at historic buildings and drink an espresso at the “Julius Meinl” (on the photo left). And don’t forget your camera, some beautiful shots are not far away. 🙂

2018-01-24   CHAMPAGNE CELLAR

By | 2018-01-22T22:01:02+00:00 January 24th, 2018|Vienna|

I live only about one mile away but never visited the Schlumberger champagne cellars before. I can only recommend it; it’s a great photographer’s location. Asking at the reception if taking photos is permitted, it came back: “Sure, no problem at all.” My visiting time was before noon, with only few visitors, so I had time and room for placing the tripod and composing the shots I wanted.

2018-01-22   FIACRE IN VIENNA

By | 2018-01-21T19:59:55+00:00 January 22nd, 2018|Vienna|

The fiacre, a stout means of transport in the inner city of Vienna. It brings you in the right mood for exploring the historical buildings and getting a feel for the Imperial Era. The season is around-the-year, in the winter months you get a cabin deck and a blanket, in the warmer months, it’s classical open-air.

2018-01-19   BARISTAS AT WORK

By | 2018-01-19T21:38:43+00:00 January 19th, 2018|Vienna|

It was the second time that I visited “Coffee World Vienna,” an exhibition of coffee brewers, sellers and all kind of espresso machines. There’s always a pleasant smell in the air, no wonder with the steady coffee brewing. You get many coffee samples free of charge; better to hold the consumption under control. Otherwise, you get a sleepless night with that caffeine overdose.  🙂
