This is the same window as in the winterly “3003 – Homegrown“. The light is much better now
The Song of the Day is “Streaks Of Light” by Gary Girouard. Hear it on YouTube.
I remember being in south-west France, the Occitaine of old, thirty years ago. Then I was surprised by the abundance of Romanesque architectrue, the way the Gothic architecture in Albi looked more like a fortress than like a church, and I was also surprised by the lack of anything else.
But of course that can all be explained from history. The pre-Gothic era was the high-time of an independent and proud southern state of Occitaine, Gothic was the architectural style of the northern french conquerors, Albi was the place where southern resistance and a southern flavor of Christianity were cruelly suppressed.
After that time centralization set in, the French kings sucked out the land and all money went to Paris. The culture of the Troubadour courts died and the following hundreds of years saw little architectural innovation down in the stubborn old south.
Here in Austria our high-time was in the era from Baroque up to the end of the Empire. It shows. You hardly find churches without baroque altars and sculptures, and so it is here in Villach.
The Song of the Day is “Devotion” by Jessie Ware. Hear it on YouTube.
It’s hard to decide which of these two images I like better. In the end I have decided for the more dynamic one and against the subtle light reflexes on the facade of this office building in Villach.
The Song of the Day is “I Like It Rough” by Lady Gaga. Hear it on YouTube.
Today we have part of an old factory building directly across the street from work. It’s one of the few remaining parts of a greater industrial complex, dating from a time when we still had domestic industry
The Song of the Day is “Factory” by Martha Wainwright. Hear it on YouTube.
A piece fo wall and fence near work. I’ve taken the image across the street. Long lenses sometimes help
The Song of the Day is “Dappled Light” by Murdo McRae. Hear it on YouTube.
Here’s some backlit advertising on the fence in front of an esoteric dance shop
The Song of the Day is “Deva Shri Ganesha” by Ajay Atul. Hear it on YouTube.
I begin to see through that lens
The Song of the Day is one (last?) time “Don’t Apply Compression Gently” by Courtney Barnett. Hear it on YouTube.
Same church as yesterday. This is less “my work” than yesterday’s image. It’s a pretty plain depiction of someone else’s work. It’s a good work though, and therefore I guess you may like it
The Song of the Day is again “Stained Glass” by Jon Guerra. Hear it on YouTube.
Here’s a dusty stained-glass window in a modern church in Vienna, along with a cobweb in the corner and some very nice light.
The Song of the Day is “Stained Glass” by Jon Guerra, a musician whose view on religion on I obviously don’t share, but you’ll have to admit that a song with “stained glass” in its title is hard to find outside of a religious context

This is an image very similar to what I’ve frequently made in my Nikon days. Need shallower DOF? Just focus a vertical slice nearer. There is no advantage to any camera system with a bigger sensor. That’s even f3.5, not f2.8. That’s what I’ve chosen in order to make the old woman in the back at least recognizable as a human being.
The Song of the Day is still “Don’t Apply Compression Gently” by Courtney Barnett. Hear it on YouTube.
