While waiting for a bus I took this image, totally unaware of my friend Gerhard watching me. Actually it’s not only that I didn’t recognize him, in fact I didn’t see any person at all.
The only way to take this image was from an elevator, through thick sheets of glass. You can imagine the image needed a lot of saturation and contrast in post-processing 🙂
Hmm, reminds me of some surrealist, maybe a little of Picasso as well. It’s amazing what seemingly flat sheets of glass can do to a reflection 😀
The buildings in this series of images are part of a new office complex near Krieau, one of Vienna’s two traditional horce racetracks.
It is located at the northern side of Prater, a big former hunting ground, today the biggest park in Vienna. The location was in discussion for our new office, but in the end turned out to be too expensive. What a pity 🙂
And off we went to France. Aix en Provence was the destination and we went by car. It’s easily reachable from Austria in one day.
This image was taken on the French highway, somewhere between Cannes and Nizza, during a refueling stop. It was drizzling a little and I took my first image on that trip: the hood of a big and expensive BMW SUV, sprinkled with cheap rain, reflecting a disfunctional roof 🙂
Another effect of not only using images shot on the same day is, that I make a lot of images on a good day and so I can actually use them, thereby compensating for the bad or otherwise busy days. Processing and posting images on the same day would severly limit the maximum number of good images used.
You may remember from earlier years that I had often used five or even six images in one post. Since I switched to Lightroom as my main processing tool, it is easier and I’m much faster than with Photoshop, but still, just thinking about six images takes a lot of time. Time that I don’t have or don’t want to spare.
