how is this intensely colored? it isn’t, but it has reflections and a looking-through window effect.
i think i’ve never been to the wurstelprater at night before. lights and more lights.
nadine and kreso thinking about the getting on the ride seen in the picture below. they didn’t.
lots of flares. the streaky things to the right are caused by a dirty lens. i think it adds character.
spinning thing high above; chairoplane i think. according to a sign it’s the world’s highest at 117m. the view must be fantastic.
oh no, it’s going to crash!
another night: this guy made me think of the simpsons quote about hawaiian shirts.
looking more hammered than they actually are.
one of the most fun family portraits we’ve ever done.
sometimes when i walk past shiny walls i just have to take a self-portrait.
it’s definitely autumny now, just look at the light.
here i was checking out spots for wedding portraits with my sister.
this was also a candidate. in the end we looked at ~10 places, suitable for different weather conditions. the top one met the criteria for the wedding day.
while looking around, another wedding was taking place. we sneakingly got out of their way.
…we decided to wear shades. they made me trip at least 5 times.
all those guys just randomly flocked to our table and occupied spaces.
hiding with an implied “we should go someplace else”
“take a picture of me eating this rose!”
right before taking this one i tripped due to the darkness of the shades.
the most fascinating thing about this club was, how well ventilated it was. people were smoking, dancing and stuff, but the air was clean and breathable.

another installment of the random kind. they’re bits and pieces of numerous stories.
everything in chronological order.
arriving at the train station, waiting to board.
in the car with my sister to go and help berni get his car started
we couldn’t get it to run, so we decided to tow him home
the tow-cable was scary short and my sister was going 70kph. eventually (1km from home) the cable broke. we tied a knot and it got even more scary-short. later we learned that the car was fine; the chip in the key was borked.
upon arriving back in vienna, a massive storm showed up.
two days later water from the storm was still standing in the prater.
and another watery prater view.
i decided to walk around without any particular destination and ended up in the arsenal.
kreso and i play lots of pool lately; we even bought cue-sticks. also this is a very nice pool-café at st.marx run by a very nice couple.
my pseudo-quiche experiment without eggs, but very delicious :)
cyclist at 3:30am and two drunk kids in a shopping cart.
she was fun; came in smiling, sat down and greeted me nicely.
i love these glowing orb, misty atmosphere/dirty lens light orbs.
this was on my way home after a night out and cooking for friends. it was great to cook at someone else’s place, for: no dishes to wash!
at my parents place i got distracted by sun-play while watering the plants.
sun through slit and smoke.
water, sun and trees.
water and sun at high shutter speeds. looks almost like space.
motion with water and sun.
was at the skin doctor with my sister to get some moles checked: all fine. while walking around this dog stood there waiting for his owner.
behind my parents garden. this is a neighbors cat; she was just sitting there, turning her head ever so slightly.
this i love about being away from the city. stars, lots of stars.
everyone was rushing to catch the train, including me.
the train had odd, artifacting polarizing filters on the windows.
and it’s a self-portait.
this fly, in the most thoughtful manner, died in a wonderful pose.
it’s storm season. the storms are so powerful and full of lightning that it is virtually impossible to take a photo and not catch some lightning.
also: caught one with my ipod nano. this one was about 500~600m away and killed the street lamps.
this is a rooftop garden of the akh. ‘slightly’ overprocessed.
lights and more lights. looks so much more impressive with a wider lens (or if seen in person)
kinda like the how the light, though harsh, plays softly with clouds and surroundings.
pinhole fun: it always produces rainbows <3 …
… and wonderful starbursts. but it also shows that i should really clean the sensor. (the top one has most spots cloned out)
it’s just standing there. and around it construction sites.
everyone is totally confused due to the bad signage and crosswalk zoo at the hauptbahnhof construction site. man with beer knows the way :)
