   The Raiffeisen Tower, built in 2010-2012, conquers position number 25 in the list of the highest buildings in Vienna. Measuring 78meters height and featuring 22 floors that house only offices, it might not win you over with its size but for me it’s a winner when it comes to design! A creation of architects: Dieter Hayde, Ernst Maurer, Radovan Tajder, the Raiffeisen Tower is a beauty standing right next to the Donau canal, reflecting its mood and mirroring every precious moment of the day.

Hello my dear friends,

  As much as i enjoy sunny weather, when it comes to my photography i prefer this kind of weather! Gloomy, about to rain and really dramatic! ☁ ☁ ☁ I cannot help but feel that it gives another dimension to otherwise not so interesting themes. What do you think? Am i the only one who gets inspired by this kind of weather? Let me know if i’m crazy or not! Hahaha! XD

Hello my dear friends,

  Lately, i found myself taking the same path over and over again on my afternoon walks… I don’t enjoy crowds and noise, so instinctively i was drawn to a more quiet part of the city, where you can hear the birds chirping and lose your thought in the reflections and the ever-changing street art. Indeed, walking along the Donau canal has proven a very soothing and inspiring experience and i can guarantee you this, there will be at least one new graffiti every day you pass by, you just have to keep your eyes open! So, what have i been doing in Vienna? Observing, soaking it all in, making it mine… 😍

  Have a great week you all! 😀 😀 😀 And don’t forget to smile!

Hello my dear friends,

  The sun has been shinning like crazy these past few days ☀️, a bit too much for my photography taste! You know me, i need my clouds☁️… So when i’m not out sunbathing, i’m going through older shots and finding a few worth uploading, like this one maybe! This street is full of photography related shops, i’m sure you can recognize the Leica store on the left. It’s a beautiful street but terrible for people who suffer from GAS syndrome! No, don’t worry if you ate too many beans for dinner, i’m talking about Gear Acquisition Syndrome 😛 Yeah, that’s a thing…Best prevention medicine? Having no money of course…No Money, no GAS! Another tip, refrain yourself from window shopping, your heart will weep a little with those prices…

Show me your colors

Show me your colors by V-Light

  After all the colorless and snowy photos, i felt the need to upload something warmer and vibrant. I’m still searching for my Vienna, but at a moment like this one, when the sky burns and colors explode into a crazy dance that changes its tune every few minutes, to eventually fade away as the darkness takes over…This, this is when i feel i’m getting closer to my goal…

    The beautiful Hundertwasser Haus surrounded by snow! 😀 I finally had the rare opportunity to take a photo of it without people walking all around but unfortunately the cars parked next to it, seem to always be there! It has become one of my goals to take a photo of this building without any cars and people around! One day…

  Good morning my friends!!! 😀 It’s snowing again in Vienna and it’s a beautiful morning indeed! I cannot wait to go out and shoot some snowy photos! For now, here’s a photo of the Florido Tower in an icy surrounding. ❄ The waterpark in Floridsdorf is really a great place for photos and if you have a telephoto lens i would recommend to do some birdwatching, you’d be surprised by the variety of birds that inhabit this area!!! 🐦

  Don’t you love the feeling of being new to a city? All the beauty that awaits to be discovered can exhilarate the senses. It’s been more than 4 months since i moved to Vienna and that feeling hasn’t faded, on the contrary, it’s getting stronger. The whole city is my wonderland and i love getting lost in the streets wondering what awaits at the next corner…

  So this is one of those photos, where no matter what editing style i choose, something just doesn’t sit right in my perfectionist eye. I still like the composition and it’s my first panorama using my new tripod, so i had to upload it 😛 I tried to turn it into black and white since the colours here are not that great but it still didn’t sit right…What do you think? Do you like it?

The Urania observatory and the Uniqa tower, in one photo together 🙂

 

  I love panoramic photos because they can give you a better sense of the surroundings. You’ve already seen Urania and Uniqa in previous posts but now you can see them together, isn’t that cool? That was a handheld panorama and unfortunately no matter what software i used some parts didn’t connect that smoothly. You can click on the image to view it in a larger size and there it is more noticeable. I bought a new compact tripod that i can carry with me so i will try to make some better panoramas for you to enjoy next 😀
