Fotoeins Friday in Oberammergau: Lang selig Erben

In this month’s series, I portray images of some of the “Lüftlmalerei” (house murals) in the Bavarian alpine town of Oberammergau, 21 km northwest from Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

A mural graces the east side of the Lang selig Erben company building at Dorfstrasse 20. Lang selig Erben is one of the last remaining wood-carving workshops maintaining the handwork tradition going back to 1775.

I made the image above on 29 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the following settings: 1/1000-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-i8l.

Your emotional response to … (LAPC)

I’ve had strong reactions to many pieces of art I’ve had the privilege and pleasure of seeing in a selection of museums and art galleries around the world. Here are some works of art which may provoke emotional reaction(s) from the viewer: sad, happy, angry; or perhaps, neutral. At each image, stop to a calm, pay attention to the details, and consider the caption provided.

My Vienna: Triple Schimkowitz

Above/featured: Musenhaus (Muse House), Linke Wienzeile in Vienna – 18 May 2018.

Early 20th-century European artist Othmar Schimkowitz was one of many key figures in Vienna Modernism, an art movement which celebrated its centennial in 2018 in the Austrian capital city. Schimkowitz was born in Hungary and became well-known in Vienna for his architectural sculptures. In 1898, he joined the (Vienna) Secession, a group of artists which included Josef Hoffmann, Gustav Klimt, Max Kurzweil, Carl Moll, Koloman Moser, and Joseph Maria Olbrich.

Sculptures by Schimkowitz are often seen in a variety of architectural creations by Otto Wagner. Here below are three Schimkowitz examples in Vienna; all are accessible with public transport from Wiener Linien (WL).

A mural with various figures covers the entire front face of the building which houses the local offices of the Bavarian state forestry service (Bayerische Staatsforsten) at Ettaler Strasse 3.

Fotoeins Friday in Oberammergau: Little Red Riding Hood

In this month’s series, I portray images of some of the “Lüftlmalerei” (house murals) in the Bavarian alpine town of Oberammergau, 21 km northwest from Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

The story of Little Red Riding Hood is painted at the children’s home at Ettaler Strasse 48. The story was first published in German as Rottkäppchen by the Grimm Brothers in 1812 in their compilation “Kinder- und Hausmärchen” (Children’s and Household Tales).

I made the image above on 29 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the following settings: 1/250-sec, f/10, 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-i8h.
