Fotoeins Friday: Tango evening at Vienna’s Karlsplatz

In May 2018, I’ve completed some of the goals regarding the Vienna Modernism centenary with a visit to the Otto Wagner exhibition at the Wien Museum Karlsplatz. I stumble onto Karlsplatz and see a crowd has gathered around music which is unmistakably tango. The sounds pull me into the small open area where couples are dancing the tango. I sit down on a park bench, and even with my camera ready, I close my eyes and feel the “wash”, the breeze, the rhythm and melody, the warm late-spring evening, the rustling of leaves above, a buzz and halo from quiet chatter.

I’m glad this is a final memory from Vienna.

I made the picture above on 20 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/8, ISO4000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-bWC.

Ballet BC season 32: Program 1 preview (2017)

I’m always interested and fascinated by movement, whether it’s mechanical, natural, or human. Must be why I can’t stop looking at the world through a lens …

I attended a preview of Ballet BC‘s first program for the new 2017-2018 season (season 32). Thanks to Ballet BC and Instameet Vancouver, registered participants were provided access to the venue to watch and photograph the preview performance. Season 32 Program 1 was held for open view to the public on three consecutive evenings: 2, 3, and 4 November.

Ballet BC season 30: Program 3 (2016)

I’ve learned over time to recognize key moments when special things are happening. I’ve been fortunate to arrive at situations where I’m swimming large and I’m intersecting spatial timelines with other people who’re immensely blessed with talent, who’ve trained long and hard, and who’ve shone brilliantly under the spotlight. Within that convergence, I see what it’s like, that shimmer of a blinding spark, a clear glimpse into a universe of creative expression. The rigours and precision of classic ballet are combined with the hypnotic rhythms of contemporary dance: something new is created, boundaries are pushed, and people’s eyes are opened to a brand new world under a different light.
