Fotoeins Friday: Aktuelles Wetter (current weather)

In this first of five, I highlight Vienna for Fotoeins Friday in the month of August.

A cool evening draws to a close in the Austrian capital city. I’m waiting to board a train with the city’s U-Bahn and return to my accommodations. When a wonderfully interesting superposition of pictorial elements comes together, it would be a shame not to get a frame. I might be tired, but I’m not dead; I remind myself it’s worthwhile to pay attention.

I made the picture above at U4 station Landstrasse on 15 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime with the following settings: 1/125-sec, f/4, ISO4000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-bWr.

From the World Outside & Into Munich’s Metro (WPC)

Above/featured: U-Bahnhof Marienplatz.

After dozens of visits since 2002 to Germany’s Munich, I’ve become familiar with the city’s transport network. For the city’s residents, the day-to-day work commute from the upside and into below can merge into a monotonous grind. The following images within five U-Bahn or metro sitations might challenge that notion with ghost-like and otherworldly appearances.

Fotoeins Friday: Ghosts in the commute (Munich)

430pm in any large city generally means the afternoon rush is in full-swing. The centre of Munich is unofficially marked by the transport junction at Marienplatz for both U- and S-Bahn trains. When I come up to the underground concourse, a steady flow of people are streaming through, up, and down. That sparks an idea. Ideally, I’d like to have a neutral-density filter to cut down the light by at least a factor of two, but I have the camera stopped down enough that even a long-exposure isn’t completely burning the highlights, although hindsight tells me I could’ve turned the ISO further down. I think my experiment worked relatively well; standing around with a tripod would be far too conspicuous.

I made the photo above on 22 February 2017 with the Canon EOS6D, 24-105 zoom, and the following settings: 1-sec, f/22, ISO400, 24mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-9uF.

Fotoeins Friday: Heads bowed, Berlin Magdalenenstrasse

There’s something to be said about a coincidental convergence of colour, shape, and form. Granted, the figure in the foregound is likely in far better circumstances than the figures representing survivors in 1945. Sometimes, it’s better to be lucky than to be good. And sometimes, it’s been said the dead have found themselves fortunate.

I made the photo above on 13 November 2012 with the Canon EOS450D camera, EF-S 18-55 II kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/10s, f/5, ISO400, and 18mm focal length (29mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-7ON.

Fotoeins Friday: Berlin’s familiar yellow blur (U-Bahn, Zoo Station)

The familiar yellow streams through the underground; the familiar sounds of the train wheels clic-clacking over the tracks coming into place, as a train pulls into the station. These are Berlin’s U-Bahn trains, and I’m standing on the “U2 to Pankow” platform at Zoologischer Garten train station. The station is home to U-Bahn1 lines U2 and U9; S-Bahn lines S5, S7, and S75 (as part of the east-west Stadtbahn line); and to various regional trains throughout the Berlin-Brandenburg area.

1 Sometimes the U2 is called the U12 during construction periods along the east-west lines.

I made this photo above on 30 November 2014 with the Canon 6D, EF 24-105 L IS zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/4s, f/8, ISO500, and 28mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-6Cn.
