Fotoeins Friday: RTW10, thirty-three

10 years ago, I began an around-the-world (RTW) journey lasting 389 consecutive days, from 24 December 2011 to 15 January 2013 inclusive.

25 August 2012.

We’ve hopped on a ferry from mainland South Australia to Kangaroo Island. In the island’s southwest corner is an arch-shaped formation called Admiral’s Arch; from here, it’s over 3000 kilometres of open water to the Antarctic coast. Although rocks here are pounded by wave-action from the waters of the South Pacific, New Zealand fur seals and their pups are present in an out-of-bounds area set aside as a safe breeding area. This is where long-glass (zoom-lens) is handy, but from a very safe distance.

I made the image on 25 Aug 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/160-sec, f/5.6, ISO100, and 300mm focal length (480mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-mkR.

My Vienna: Schnitzel love at Meissl & Schadn

“Schnitzel: das ist nicht nur nach den Umfragen das Lieblingsessen der Österreicherinnen und Österreicher. Das ist fast schon ein Religion, oder zumindest ein Kultobjekt, der Mittelpunkt eines heliozentrisch-kulinarischen Systems.”

Not only is schnitzel Austria’s favourite food, it’s almost religion, or at the very least, a ‘cult object’ (at) the centre of a heliocentric culinary system.

“Genussland Österreich: vom Wiener Schnitzel”, by Gert Baldauf (ORF 2011).

The short wood mallet strikes with a thud.

Then, a second; followed by another.

The targeted slab becomes flatter, the fleshy disk gets thinner, growing outward with every thump. The shape is closer to circular, its size as large as a dinner plate.

The prep staff in kitchen-whites, in full concentration with their labour.

And that piece of freshly cut veal pounded thin will soon be breaded, and deep-fried to a crispy golden-brown.

The Wiener Schnitzel will soon be mine.

Fotoeins Friday: RTW10, thirty-two

10 years ago, I began an around-the-world (RTW) journey lasting 389 consecutive days, from 24 December 2011 to 15 January 2013 inclusive.

16 August 2012.

I’m visiting friends in Adelaide in South Australia, and one of our first stops is the city’s Central Market. Since 1869, the market’s vendors have provided fruit, vegetables, meats, cheese, and dairy products from South Australia, around the nation, and beyond. The sight of tiny little sausages pulls me towards Con’s Fine Food who’ve been present at the market since the 1960s. And I can’t forget there’s still rashers of bacon and slices of cheese.

I made the image on 16 Aug 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/100-sec, f/2.8, ISO400, and 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-mk7.

3 fave images, 30 days in Vienna (LAPC)

Featured: Karlsplatz (4.) – 15 May 2022.

I recently spent 30 days in Vienna, examining her history of art, architecture, music, and science. A nation’s capital city is also worthy of photographic examination, and there are many opportunities throughout the city to absorb Vienna’s unique urban charm and style. I snapped over 10-thousand images which will keep me busy “in the archive” for some time. The following three images stand out, at least for now. Perhaps, I’ll feel differently about them in 3 weeks, 3 months, or 3 years’ time.

10 years ago, I began an around-the-world (RTW) journey lasting 389 consecutive days, from 24 December 2011 to 15 January 2013 inclusive.

25 July 2012.

Like many before me, I’ve purchased a package for a daytrip on New Zealand’s South Island. After a 5-hour ride from Queenstown on a large comfortable coach/bus, we arrive at Milford Sound (Piopiotahi) and hop onto a 2-hour cruise into the waters of the Fiordland (Te Moana o Atawhenua). Pyramid-shaped frosted mountain peaks, steep cliffs, tall waterfalls, and deep fjords are the common sight; another bonus comes with the arrival of dolphins swimming alongside the boat.

The highlighted geographical feature in this post is located within the UNESCO World Heritage Site “Te Wahipounamu – South West New Zealand”. I made the image on 25 Jul 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/1600-sec, f/4, ISO200, and 18mm focal length (29mm full-frame equivalent).
