Fotoeins Friday: Riomaggiore, Cinque Terre (4/5)

Part 4 of 5 in Italy’s Cinque Terre: Riomaggiore.

For an entire day, I traveled up and down Italy’s Ligurian Riviera on foot, and by train to explore the famous Cinque Terre region: Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, Riomaggiore, and Monterosso al Mare. UNESCO inscribed the Cinque Terre as World Heritage Site in 1997.

I made the photo above on 21 June 2008 with a Canon EOS450 and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/5, ISO200, 21mm focal length (34mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-daA.

My Salzburg: more modern art than a Mozart mix

For a different way of examining Salzburg in north-central Austria that goes beyond the history of the Habsburgs and the music of Mozart, the Walk of Modern Art allows visitors and residents to walk through parts of the city for a mix of historical and contemporary perspectives at street-level and from the cliffs above. The art pieces are placed throughout the city’s Old Town to coincide with key landmarks and sights. The city of Salzburg also provides information about the walk.

  1. Marina Abramovic: Spirit of Mozart (2004)
  2. Stephan Balkenhol: Sphaera (2007), Frau im Fels (2007)
  3. Christian Boltanski: Vanitas (2009)
  4. Anthony Cragg: Caldera (2008)
  5. Anselm Kiefer: A.E.I.O.U. (2002)
  6. Brigitte Kowanz: Beyond Recall (2011)
  7. Markus Lüpertz: Mozart – Eine Hommage (2005)
  8. Mario Merz: Ziffern im Wald (2003)
  9. Jaume Plensa: Awilda (2010)
  10. James Turrell: Sky-Space (2006)
  11. Manfred Wakolbinger: Connection (2011)
  12. Erwin Wurm: Gurken (2011)

Access to all of the art work is free of admission charge, though the pieces by Boltanski and Kiefer are subject to limited opening hours.

UNESCO inscribed Salzburg’s Old Town as World Heritage Site in 1996.

Fotoeins Friday: Corniglia, Cinque Terre (2/5)

Part 2 of 5 in the Cinque Terre: Corniglia.

For an entire day, I traveled up and down Italy’s Ligurian Riviera on foot, and by train to explore the famous Cinque Terre region: Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, Riomaggiore, and Monterosso al Mare. UNESCO inscribed the Cinque Terre as World Heritage Site in 1997.

Corniglia is a small quiet village perched on top of a small rocky promontory some 100 meters (330 feet) above sea level, which might look daunting at first glance after disembarking the train at the sea-level station. Any physical exertion on this hot early-summer day in the Mediterranean is worth it.

I made the photo above on 21 June 2008 with a Canon EOS450 and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/4.5, ISO200, 28mm focal length (45mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-d9D.
