2019-01-11   MUMOK VIENNA

By |2019-01-10T22:00:07+01:00January 11th, 2019|Vienna|

Mumok is a museum with experimental art and modern design located at the Ringstraße in Vienna. Often I like the interior architecture more von the exhibits. To catch the whole scene and bring the dimension I used a wide angle lens.

2018-12-25   CHRISTMAS IN VIENNA

By |2018-12-24T10:51:04+01:00December 25th, 2018|Vienna|

On the way home from the Software developers “We are developers – AI” conference I passed the Burgtheater an the “Wiener Christkindlmarkt”, Viennese Christmas-market. It was gloomy already. A good opportunity to try Google Pixels Night Sight feature. You have to activate it in the camera view. You’ll see a button “more” in the right corner. Photos with Night Sight require, that you have to hold your smartphone steady for some seconds and you can see a progress-wheel which shoots and calculates your picture. I think even many DSLRs have a hard time, to bring similar results hand-held.

2018-12-22   GALERY OF THE GLORIETTE

By |2018-12-21T21:31:00+01:00December 22nd, 2018|Vienna|

The Gloriette is a unique building with galleries on both sides and a little hall in the middle. It lies on a hill, on the opposite side of Schönbrunn Palace. The freshly renovated building is a touristic hot spot. I shot the photo from a not common angle. Therefore it shows a different perspective compared to the hundreds of already existing pictures from the Internet.

2018-12-10   ART IN VIENNA SECESSION

The Vienna Secession is a building for art exhibitions. In the cellar are wall-paintings from Gustav Klimt, after the entrance area in the ground floor, you can see that checkered room styling, with black, muscular man dolls.

2018-12-09   WAITING FOR MY WIFE

By |2018-12-09T10:41:00+01:00December 9th, 2018|Vienna|

My wife should have come at 4 pm in the Löwelstrasse, Vienna, to pick me up for a ride to Gloggnitz. At 4 pm the phone rang, and she told me, that she is still at home, but is leaving soon and will be half an hour late. Instead of getting angry 🙂 , I took my Google Pixel 2 phone and walked in the nearby streets and in the Volksgarten to take some photos. I was lucky, because, in winter time, 4 pm is a good time for photo shooting, with the sinking sun and therefore more beautiful colors.

2018-11-27   CHRISTMAS HAS STARTED IN VIENNA

By |2018-11-26T20:31:28+01:00November 27th, 2018|Vienna|

I was wandering back to a tram to get back to my car which was parking outside the city center.  On the way, I tried the new Google-Pixel Nightsight photo feature. A remarkable achievement programmed by the Google developers makes shooting night scenes easy with first-class results. It came handy that the first Christmas decors were out on the streets, so it was easy to find a motive.

2018-11-24   MUSEUM ARCHITECTURE

By |2018-11-23T18:29:24+01:00November 24th, 2018|Vienna|

It’s worth to look at and photograph the architecture of the Museum of Natural History in Vienna. Big colossal baroque style with many ornaments and paintings represent the museum. However the exhibits are already outdated; older stuffed animals stand in glass cabinets, not the newest styling which you expect from a modern museum. This was the reason, why my brother and his girlfriend were in the exhibition rooms, while I was walking around in the lobby with my cameras.

2018-10-25   THE PERFECT STOCK OF CHAMPAGNE

By |2018-10-24T20:42:03+01:00October 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.

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+01:00September 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.
