I haven’t explore Gasometer area so far and this morning I finally did it. I decided to use only the 50 mm lens as too much dust was laying on it lately. Therefore I took a few geometric impressions.


Escape from the city

Noting more easier. Just take a train, open a good book and before you know it – you are somewhere far away. That is basically the story of my last Saturday. Except that the “far away” was around 80 km from Vienna and “somewhere” was Melk – a beautiful little town in Lower Austria.

I was a very disciplined tourist. I visited the Melk Abbey, had a tour in the city and tasted a delicious kaiserschmarrn. But moreover I enjoyed the silence of the place and a walk in the forest.

I also took the time to exercise different frames or themes and I had a photowalk in & around Melk. The result – a mixed photo set.

Note to myself: A wide-angle lens is a must.

Urban colors

I had the plan today to go to the Botanical Garden, but since I found it closed, I simply had a photowalk around the blocks of Vienna’s third district.

I decided to focus the theme “colors”, as a friend of mine was teasing my predominant black & white photos by explaining me how my camera can actually take color pictures too.

Ok, now here they are… a few urban colors:
