Fotoeins Friday: Aktuelles Wetter (current weather)

A cool evening draws to a close in the Austrian capital city of Vienna. 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.

Fotoeins Friday: Arnott’s in the Museum (Sydney)

This post is the fourth of five Fotoeins Fridays in June, all from Australia’s most populous city, Sydney.

When I was working as an astronomer in Chile, I discovered from Australian colleagues the delectable Tim Tam biscuit by Arnott’s; the ‘classic’ caramel is my downfall. I questioned how I had gone so long without having had the beaut of a Tim Tam. For a company with long traditions in region and country, it’s fitting the advertisement shown here is mounted on the wall of a historical urban rail station in Sydney’s CBD/downtown.

I made the photo above on 2 April 2013 with the Canon 450D, 18-55 kit-glass, and the following settings: 1/6-sec, f/3.5, ISO400, and 18mm focal length (29mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie on fotoeins.com at https://wp.me/p1BIdT-bGb.

Fotoeins Friday: making tracks, Hackerbrücke to Hbf (Munich)

From Munich’s Hackerbrücke station looking into the early morning sun, this east-facing view towards the city’s main train station (Hauptbahnhof) reveals a network of overhead power wires and a lattice of intersecting track. The twin towers of the Frauenkirche are a landmark and provide a central anchor for the scene. The Hauptbahnhof is not only symbolic where the city’s past and present clash, but the station is where visitors and residents converge on their way in and out of the city.

I made the above photo on 23 February 2017 with the Canon 6D, 70-300 glass, and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/10, ISO400, and 190-mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie on fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-9T4.

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.

My Berlin: Bornholmer Strasse, first through the Wall

By today’s appearance, it’s easy to overlook the bridge at Bornholmer Strasse (also known as Bösebrücke) as an historic landmark. On the night of 9 November 1989, the Berlin Wall opened here first, at the Bornholmer Strasse bridge border-crossing between East Berlin and West Berlin.
