Vienna has two newspapers that are distributed at underground stations for free. They are also the worst kind of newspapers imaginable. Still, people read them and they even have political influence. It’s hard to understand, but it’s harder to argue with facts. Although, the whole concept of facts seems to be of diminishing importance today 🙂

This is the last image. During the concert I was not only not allowed to use my camera, I even had to leave my bag with a security officer. I got it back, no problem, but I can’t exactly say that it felt comfortable, especially as it was my most expensive camera, along with the most expensive lenses 🙂

There are only so many ways to take images of the broadcast tower and the glass tent. As always with landmarks, it’s impossible to claim any originality. That’s no reason not to try though 🙂

The Image of the Day is one more example of how the extended depth of field of Micro Four Thirds cameras can work to the photographer’s advantage.

In early March I’ve been in Munich’s Olympiapark to see a concert. This was 45 years after the 1972 Olympic Summer Games and 45 years after that futuristic glass tent was built.

There is a certain patina of age on the buildings, which is in a stark and interesting contrast with the radically modern architecture.

4000 blog posts, at least one per day, almost eleven years. So, why is this painful?

The image was taken at the hospital on February 20 this year. I was there with my parents to hear the results of my father’s chemotherapy. Basically the cancer in his liver had not receded and instead grown. Further chemotherapy was offered tentatively, but it was clear that he would die some time this year. It was just a matter of how long his liver could carry on working.

It’s a sad image.
