Wiener Rettung

Wiener Rettung by V-Light
The central first aid/rescue center in Vienna, Austria.


  This beautiful building can be found in the 3rd disctrict of Vienna, in Radetzkystraße 1. The rescue center was built in 1897-1899 by Ferdinand Hrach and Franz Gruber. The bust displayed in the center of the building is a portrait of Jaromir Mundy, founder of the First-Aid Society. For this photo i used Analog Efex Pro 2 to give it a more vintage treatment since i finally managed to get a photo of it without any cars in the way, so i thought i could play a bit and make it look older 😀 What do you think?

    1. I have no idea, i couldn’t find much info about it. I have to update my searching ways cause google doesn’t help that much for all the Austrian buildings 😛 Maybe i should start going to libraries! 😀

    1. Thank you very much Robert! 😀 I found out that Sunday mornings are the best for finding places without so many people and cars blocking the view! This building is very close to where i live and i have tried many times to take a photo of it…I’m still not so pleased with the framing but i’m happy that i could get it without cars! 😀 We can’t have it all!

    1. I’m very glad that you think so! Thank you 😀 I find it very inspiring and creative to post-process my photos in the way that i felt them, that’s what i usually try to convey.
