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: Red wave (Bratislava)

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

Like all cities around the world, the streets have to contend with the daily (afternoon) rush of commuters in their cars and on public transport. The eye immediately picks up the brilliant red used by Dopravný podnik Bratislava (DPB) for their trams. The weather was pleasant and I decided to walk throughout the entire nine hours of my day-long visit to the Slovakian capital city.

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.
