17 for 17: Fotoeins Fotograms of 2017

Featured: At the Germany-Austria border, from Fellhorn mountain near Oberstdorf: 8 March.

Another year gone, another 34-thousand images made*

As the image above shows, I also spent a lot of time this year at the Austrian-German frontier, much of it at altitude.

Below I look back at the year 2017 with a selection of 17 images. Each picture is a direct clickable link to the corresponding post on Instagram.

Fotoeins Friday: armed, fuzzy, and dangerous (Berlin)

31 October 2012.

While it’s Reformation Day for the east German Protestant states, it’s no different for me than any other day in the German capital city. During this final phase of my year-long RTW, today begins my 3rd week into my 2-month stay in Berlin. After a walk through Treptow Park and the Soviet War Memorial, I swing back around to the S-Bahn station Treptower Park. On the south ramp to the Elsenbrücke bridge, there’s a variety of street art including this panda bear holding two handguns and surrounded by rifles. I have only one conclusion:

“Don’t f**k with a bad panda …”

Julien Fanton D’Andon designed this piece of art as the logo for Bad Panda Records.


During my year-long RTW, I made this photo on Reformation Day (31 October) 2012 with the Canon 450D, 18-55 kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/30-sec, f/5, ISO800, 37mm focal length (59mm full-frame equivalent).

Hyde Park, Sydney, Australia - 30 Sept 2012

Fotoeins Friday: Sydney soap sphere in Hyde Park

30 September 2012.

Hyde Park, Sydney.

It’s a beautiful Labour Day holiday-weekend in the Australia’s New South Wales, complete with early-spring sun, blue skies, and comfortable +21C/70F temperatures. Located in Sydney’s city centre, Hyde Park is not only the oldest park in the city, but also the oldest park in Australia. The area was originally used as a staging ground for soldiers, and in 1810, was officially recognized as a “common” (open land for public use). Then-governor Macquarie named the common after Hyde Park in London, England.

Near the park’s Archibald Fountain, a gentleman blowing soap bubbles large and small attracts a crowd, young and old alike. Patience forms a well-formed stable spherical bubble, as these two young ladies seem thrilled to be caught “inside.”

During my year-long RTW, I made the photo on 30 September 2012 with the Canon 450D, 50-prime, and the following settings: 1/1000-sec, f/5, ISO200, and 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-a9y.

Fotoeins Friday: Mural at drive-in bottle shop, Perth

18 September 2012.

The city of Subiaco is an inner western suburb of greater Perth in western Australia. As I’m visiting friends in Perth for a few days, I find myself curious about “Subi”, and that’s when bright colours catch my eye. I wander into a parking lot in front of a drive-in bottle shop. And next to the Subiaco Hotel drive-in bottle shop, a small auxiliary building is painted over with a delightful and whimsical mural by Robert Jenkins.. A time-lapse of the mural’s creation is found here. As of posting, it’s not clear whether Jenkins’ mural is still present.

Fotoeins Friday: the art of protest, Melbourne CBD

30 August 2012.

Street art covers the walls in Hosier Lane within Melbourne’s Central Business District. It is in fact the art of protest.

This painting does not carry social or sacred meaning nor hope for money as some primary source for justifying your pathetic needs.
Even though I appear ugly and misunderstood I’m treasurable to those that allow me to hang around.

At centre is the Australian Aboriginal Flag created by Harold Thomas and flown in July 1971 for the first time. The flag was proclaimed by the Australian Federal Government as an official Flag of Australia in 1995.


During my year-long RTW, I made this photo on 30 August 2012 with the Canon 450D, 50-prime, and the following settings: 1/15-sec, f/5, ISO800, and 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-a0M.
