Back to work. It is incredibly quiet here between Christmas and New Year. I can’t say that I had much time for photographing, but at least I got inspiration for two shots I’ll try to repeat tomorrow. One desperately needs a polarizer, which I didn’t recognize in my hurry, and the other needs slightly different framing, but both seem repeatable.

Anyway. It’s always a little harder to come up with usable images in Vienna. I have much less time and mostly rely on isolating details. My best tools in that struggle are the Lensbaby and the Sigma 30/1.4, both wide open. In this case we are back to the Sigma.

This is part of a fence guarding a sapling in Seidengasse, right between Zieglergasse and Bandgasse.

  1. Love this quote, “It’s always a little harder to come up with usable images in Vienna.” I’d like to use it in a tired voice at a cocktail party. Heh heh heh. Vienna, one of the legendary cities of Western civilization… a city littered with the debris of the world’s greatest artists… a place of museum-preserved facades…

    And yet, it does grow increasingly difficult to see the unusual in a place which to you is ‘usual’. Try this… go onto any street and snap randomly in as youslowly twirl completely around. Then do it again, zoomed in. Try the same process, assuming the street is well lit… at night.

    I guarantee you that you will have more enticing images than most will ever experience. Especially with your post processing imagination.
