Fotoeins Friday: S-Bahn Tirol from Innsbruck to Brennero

I’m on board an S4 S-Bahn Tirol train from Innsbruck to Brennero in Italy. I took this picture while the train was traveling south between St. Jodok and Gries. The train is on a gradual ascent, the valley narrows, and the mountains grow taller. The landscape seems to expand, even as hamlets and houses dotting the valley floor look tiny. That’s the unfolding present as the train crosses the border from Austria into Italy, and we pull slowly into the train station at Brennero for S4’s final stop.

I made the picture above on 14 May 2018 with an Fujifilm X70 mirrorless fixed-prime and the following settings: 1/250-sec, f/11, 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-d00.


Matthew Good

The MG(B) 20: sonic timescapes

Above/featured: see track no. 9 in the list below.

Music is a personal reflection, providing a living soundtrack to important personal highlights of joy and tragedy. For the amount of time I’ve spent on the road and within a city I love and adore, I’ve created the following lists:

The following 20 tracks are by Matthew Good, an artist who hails from Coquitlam in metropolitan Vancouver. I first discovered the Matthew Good Band in 1997 at Toronto’s North by Northeast music festival, and saw them live in small venues on Queen Street and at Lee’s Palace on Bloor West.

With this selection coming between 1995 and 2017, your kilometrage may vary. And if it doesn’t work for you, that fortunately isn’t my problem at all.

Fotoeins Friday: Paragliders over Neustift in Stubaital

With my base established in Innsbruck, I already spent the morning exploring a little bit of Scharnitz at the Austria-German border. I’m on the 590 bus from Innsbruck to Neustift im Stubaital, and I catch sight of paragliders in the foreground, as well as the dot-silhouettes of several others riding the thermals high up in the distance. Late-spring and summer provides a wealth of ground-, alpine- and aerial-based activities in the Stubaital (Stubai valley).

I made the picture above on 12 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 and the following settings: 1/250-sec, f/16, ISO1000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-cXl.

Tracers of human & geologic history (LAPC)

Above/featured: Muzeum station, Prague metro line C – 8 Nov 2016 (HL).

The Oxford Dictionary defines history as:

•   study of past events, particularly in human affairs;
•   whole series of past events connected with a particular person or thing;
•   a continuous chronological record of key or public events or of a particular trend or institution.

I provide the following examples of tangible traces of past societies and signs of present-day activity. I tried here to avoid elements of or imprints by historic architectural or building styles which was presented here in a previous LAPC.

  1. Canada: Vancouver
  2. Czech Republic: Prague
  3. Germany: Berlin
  4. Germany: Blaubeuren
  5. Germany: Frankfurt am Main
  6. Germany: Leipzig
  7. Germany: Worms (Warmaisa)
  8. México: Ciudad de México
  9. New Zealand: Wellington
  10. USA: Albuquerque, NM
  11. USA: Grand Canyon, AZ

Fotoeins Friday: approaching the AT-DE frontier at Schrarnitz

I’m on board an S-Bahn Tyrol S5 train from Innsbruck, and the route’s northern terminus in the town of Scharnitz is within sight. Those mountains tower over the historic north-south path along the Isar river and through Scharnitz pass, and also mark the present-day border between Austria (AT) and Germany (DE).

I made the photo above on 12 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 and the following settings: 1/250-sec, f/16, ISO1000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-cX7.
