It’s interesting to see how things change. This is one of a few high-rise buildings that have been built around Vienna’s new central railway station. Some of the architecture is boring, some is interesting, and sometimes even the boring gets interesting when seen from the right angle.

In any case the whole area looks strangely empty. There’s no organically grown infrastructure, and when you leave the immediate vicinity of the station, you are alone on empty sidewalks.

The 45/1.8 is a lens that I very rarely use. It’s not that it does not perform well. It does, and it does extremely so. It is also not the angle of view. In fact the 90mm (eq) focal length is what I find most satisfying for street photography. At that focal length the size of the frame best matches my area of attention. Seeing with the 45/1.8 is completely effortless.

No, it’s the same reason why I tend to prefer the 17/1.8 over the 25/1.8: metal over plastic. Stupid, huh?

Here are two more details of yesterday’s old house.

And what else? Nothing new photography-wise. I’ve taken a few usable images so far this year, but most of them on two or three days.

Instead I work and … play computer games. I haven’t done that in many years, and from time to time it is great fun 🙂
