Do you remember images that you’ve taken? Normally I do, especially those that I’ve decided to post-process. Of course I remember this image as well. I remember the place, the time of day, everything, but it feels like it had been ages ago.
Munich is some time ago, but it definitely feels like “this year”. Even the ice images from January feel closer than this one. Why? I have no idea.
I have no idea what they do when suddenly rain comes falling, but I found the idea of having that furniture out on the street pretty charming 🙂
By the way, I’m writing this on March 8 and yesterday Adobe released new versions of ACR and Lightroom with full support for the E-M1 MkII (among others). Sweet! I can again choose from the Olympus camera profiles (like “Standard” or “Vivid”) as starting points.
This is one of our meeting rooms. My office is on the fifth floor, and this is high enough, that the sinking January sun shines its last rays through the meeting room’s big south-west facing windows.
Every time I look at this image, my first association is “manhole cover”, but no, it is the center of a fancy table in front of a café in Villach.
The Song of the Day is “Iron” by Woodkid. Hear it on YouTube.
No real wave, just a stack of plastic sun loungers at the beach.
The Song of the Day is “Tidal Wave” by Dick Dale And His Del-Tones. Hear the King of Surf Music on YouTube.
Well, no mourning. Actually it’s just a bench in front of our office building, a bench that I’ve passed a hundred times and that I feel I’ve finally documented adequately.
The Song of the Day is “The Mourner’s Bench” from the Death In June album “But, What Ends When the Symbols Shatter?”. Yeah, really! Thankfully it’s already late July 😀

I don’t really know why, but somehow I have less time for photography at the moment. This may be connected to stress at work, but it may also be simply due to the fact that I read a lot lately. I even have found pleasure in reading modern German literature. I haven’t done that in a long time, maybe 90% of what I’ve read during the last 20 years was in English. Well, I won’t run out of books either way 🙂
Here’s another railway station image. I took it for the shadows and got the light as a bonus 😀
The Song of the Day is “Standing In The Way Of The Light” from Birdy’s 2013 second studio album “Fire Within”. Hear it on YouTube.
Light! Isn’t it the heart of photography? Here’s a reflection off a metal table in Gänsehäufel, Vienna’s biggest bath, occupying a whole island in an arm of river Danube.
The Song of the Day is “Casual Conversations” from the classic Supertramp album “Breakfast in America”. Hear it, along with a Japanese introduction, on YouTube.
How about some color images for a change? I’ve taken this one in my apartment in Vienna. It is not what I recently have written about, not something created organically over a period of long years, but I still have spent plenty of time with the details in this one-room apartment. Colors were one important factor and the area near entrance is green with red Chinese furniture and a big gold framed mirror. I guess it’s a photographically interesting place and I could show you more of it.
The Song of the Day is “This Is Called My Home” by We Are the Ocean. Hear it on YouTube.
I took this image while sitting on the terrace around noon, watching the pattern of light and shadow cast by the cheap wooden table, delighted by the warmth of one of the last hot days in August.
I already knew that it wouldn’t stay that way, that summer would give way to fall, but at this moment it was still there in all its glory. Now that I write about it, only four days later, I am on the train, crossing cold and rainy Alps, hoping that by the time you read this, we’ll be getting a few more, a few last sunny days.
The Song of the Day is “Lunch Break” from the classic 1967 Moody Blues album “Days Of Future Passed”. Hear it on YouTube.
