Fotoeins Friday: Vienna dusk over cobblestone Ballgasse

In Vienna, Ballgasse is a narrow cobblestone passage and one of the last remaining from medieval times, even though the surrounding buildings are much younger dating to the 18th-century. The lack of vehicles and periods of quiet chatter become a slow relaxed trip back in time. This short stretch of street is within the city’s Old Town which UNESCO inscribed as World Heritage Site in 1996.

I made the picture above on 18 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the settings: 1/125-sec, f/4, ISO2500, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-bRN.

Fotoeins Friday: Fillgraderstiege steps in Vienna Mariahilf

In Vienna’s Mariahilf neighbourhood resides Austria’s “most beautiful steps“, the Fillgraderstiege. The steps were designed in the Art Nouveau style by Maximilian Hegele and were built with stone and cast-iron over a two-year span by 1907 to connect two streets Fillgradergasse and Theobaldgasse. In 2001, UNESCO inscribed Vienna’s Old Town as a World Heritage Site.

I made the picture above on 16 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the settings: 1/1000-sec, f/9, ISO1000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-bXP.

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.

My Vienna: finding Ludwig Boltzmann in spring

I’m neither tragic nor hip, but I know a little bit about Canadian icon and band, The Tragically Hip, and specifically, a song of theirs called “Springtime in Vienna.”

I can’t play a musical instrument, but I especially liked listening to a performance of Johann Strauss II’s “An der schönen blauen Donau” (The Blue Danube) on an intercity river catamaran between Vienna and Bratislava.

What I’m totally convinced is when spring comes calling, I’m allergic to nature. I’m a living example to irritation and inflammation, and living consequence to nature’s response to spring.
