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.
