Fotoeins Friday: the D in Vienna Nussdorf

A city is and should be more than the sum of its most visited spots.

I’ve just disembarked the D streetcar in Vienna’s northern neighbourhood of Nussdorf. I’m here to see a piece of urban architecture which is a part of Otto Wagner’s legacy for the city. Even mid-morning on Saturday is light on traffic with few pedestrians around, but near proximity along the Danube means there are a lot of bicyclists on the roads today. Not only is the ubiquitous red streetcar a moving highlight for Vienna, the vehicle is a moving medium transporting resident and visitor through all phases of Vienna history.

I made the picture above on 19 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and settings: 1/500-sec, f/16, ISO1000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-bY6.
