Viennese Faces

Eva was staying in Vienna. Obviously, she quickely adopted that happy Viennese face.

Darwin was wrong.

Ladies having some serious conversation on the tram.

Proofing my impeccable timing skills. Great.

Some frames from our project.

The Nice Lady.

On a wedding. That’s Erich Lessing on the right. Shot for Magnum… back in the good old days.

Wedding photographer Colleague.

When it’s dark they’re thirsty… oh well, kids! Those were the times.

Der Mann – der verwöhnt.

I interrupted some serious business.

Waiting for some marvelous Dürüm.

As I’m lazy and as I switched films a couple of times, the following frames were taken some time later. A few days at least.

It was raining quite nicely. Besides, that’s my war photographer face.

OK, back to business as usual: The Nice Lady.

Then I took a TAXI to the darkest place in town… seems like it was mainly raining the past weeks.

Post card. Book. Make millions. Yes.

More post card photos.

Some Sunday weeks ago: Meeting up with nice lady and shooting that roll of Kodak Plus-X 125 that I had in my fridge for ages.

Exploring the sweetness on the street. Real street photography.

I never made it there… now they closed. Good Single Treff it was.


Some serious photojournalistic reflection… there’s hardly anything more storytelling than some serious and distracting reflections.

And now something completely different: Neopan1600

Most of the frames are junk. Photographically handicapped I’d say.

Took this after the last post card photo. Still raining.


Hooond vs Hooooooooooooooooond.

Hooond vs. 5D.

Chicken vs. mankind.

And more.

Catching up with more current business.

Take care,

I’m going to take a shower now,

    Very artistic graffiti you guys have over there, it does Vienna proud.

    der hooond gefällt mir sehr gut.

    huiui, neopan1600 really does his job, i like those.

    and i would say timing is worthless without straight lines, composition, a DSLR and the patience to wait for suitable light, or passing by accidentely when there is suitable light ;)
