Fotoeins Friday: Fillgraderstiege steps in Vienna Mariahilf

In Vienna’s Mariahilf neighbourhood resides Austria’s “most beautiful steps“, the Fillgraderstiege. The steps were designed in the Art Nouveau style by Maximilian Hegele and were built with stone and cast-iron over a two-year span by 1907 to connect two streets Fillgradergasse and Theobaldgasse. A student of Otto Wagner, Hegele also redesigned the city’s central cemetery as well as the cemetery’s main entrance at gate 2.

These steps are under heritage protection (Denkmalschutz), but off to the side, someone has spray-painted:

Meine Tränen Sind Dein
(My tears are yours)

I made the picture above on 16 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the settings: 1/1000-sec, f/9, ISO1000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-bXP.
