Fotoeins Friday: from hrad to panelak (Bratislava)

This post is the fourth and final spotlight on Bratislava for the month of October.

The lookouts across the Danube near Sigismund Gate at Bratislava Castle (Žigmundova brána, Bratislavsky hrad) provide south-facing views of the river and the UFO Bridge (Most SNP), and in the distance beyond are prefabricated Soviet-era “panelák” housing estates in the southern district of Petržalka.

I made the photo on 17 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.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-caX.

Fotoeins Friday: Timeless (Bratislava)

This post is the third of four on Bratislava for the month of October.

From the riverbank, a relaxed stroll up the steps towards the castle lands me at the corner of Zámocké schody and Beblavého, and it’s all cobblestones. I’d like nothing more than to plop somewhere with a tall beer as I look longingly at restaurant placards tempting me with duck or venison. But I can’t, as I have to be back in Vienna this evening. But I leave with a hopeful nod, that these streets, these places seem eternal and timeless (Zeitlos).

Fotoeins Friday: Bratislava and the Danube

This post is the first of four on Bratislava for the month of October.

Overcast skies don’t diminish the impact of standing over this famous river in the capital city of Slovakia, a mere 70 kilometres east from Vienna, Austria’s capital.

I’m crossing Bratislava’s Old Bridge (Starý most) for this classic view of the UFO Bridge (Most SNP), the Danube river and the city’s castle (Bratislavský hrad). Interesting thing is that the present incarnation of the Old Bridge was a replacement completed in 2015 which included a new tram track between the Old Town on the north flank and Petržalka on the south flank.
