Fotoeins Friday: Foxy Fat Heat at Bratislava’s Stone Square

This wall mural of a sleeping fox by the Hungarian street artist Fat Heat for the 2016 Bratislava Street Art Festival appears at Kamenné Námestie (Stone Square) in Bratislava’s Old Town. The monolithic-looking structure at left is the My Tesco department store (OD Tesco, or Obchodní dům Tesco). For a comparison of scale, there is a person at right-centre.

I made the photo above on 17 May 2018 with the Fujifilm X70 and fixed 18.5mm lens (28mm full-frame equivalent) and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/10, and ISO1000. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-bIw.

Fotoeins Friday: armed, fuzzy, and dangerous (Berlin)

31 October 2012.

While it’s Reformation Day for the east German Protestant states, it’s no different for me than any other day in the German capital city. During this final phase of my year-long RTW, today begins my 3rd week into my 2-month stay in Berlin. After a walk through Treptow Park and the Soviet War Memorial, I swing back around to the S-Bahn station Treptower Park. On the south ramp to the Elsenbrücke bridge, there’s a variety of street art including this panda bear holding two handguns and surrounded by rifles. I have only one conclusion:

“Don’t f**k with a bad panda …”

Julien Fanton D’Andon designed this piece of art as the logo for Bad Panda Records.


During my year-long RTW, I made this photo on Reformation Day (31 October) 2012 with the Canon 450D, 18-55 kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/30-sec, f/5, ISO800, 37mm focal length (59mm full-frame equivalent).

Fotoeins Friday: Mural at drive-in bottle shop, Perth

18 September 2012.

The city of Subiaco is an inner western suburb of greater Perth in western Australia. As I’m visiting friends in Perth for a few days, I find myself curious about “Subi”, and that’s when bright colours catch my eye. I wander into a parking lot in front of a drive-in bottle shop. And next to the Subiaco Hotel drive-in bottle shop, a small auxiliary building is painted over with a delightful and whimsical mural by Robert Jenkins.. A time-lapse of the mural’s creation is found here. As of posting, it’s not clear whether Jenkins’ mural is still present.

Fotoeins Friday: the art of protest, Melbourne CBD

30 August 2012.

Street art covers the walls in Hosier Lane within Melbourne’s Central Business District. It is in fact the art of protest.

This painting does not carry social or sacred meaning nor hope for money as some primary source for justifying your pathetic needs.
Even though I appear ugly and misunderstood I’m treasurable to those that allow me to hang around.

At centre is the Australian Aboriginal Flag created by Harold Thomas and flown in July 1971 for the first time. The flag was proclaimed by the Australian Federal Government as an official Flag of Australia in 1995.


During my year-long RTW, I made this photo on 30 August 2012 with the Canon 450D, 50-prime, and the following settings: 1/15-sec, f/5, ISO800, and 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-a0M.

My Seattle: Near and Wide, Few and Far

To mark the third anniversary of the artist collective Few and Far, a group of artists came together in June 2014 to collaborate on a mural in Seattle’s Lower Queen Anne (Uptown). The art shown below covers the south-facing wall of a former theater which now houses the Mud Bay pet supply store and faces a parking lot between the pet supply store and Dick’s Drive-In. Some will no doubt be munching on burgers and fries while they’re looking at furry creatures painted on the wall.
