The crazy weather, still reigns here in Vienna but i can’t complain…I got some very special skies to photograph and that makes me happy of course! Getting wet was only a minor detail, i was still running around with a huge grin on my face! 😉 Would it be weird if i wished for more weather like this?
Maria vom Siege (“Mary of the Victory”) is one of the most overlooked churches in Vienna. Located in the 15th district, not faraway from the train station Westbahnhof, the area is not exactly a tourist magnet but in my eyes it’s still a very beautiful building that’s worth visiting. When i took this photo there were some restorations going on but they should be done by now! More photos coming up 😉 Happy weekend you all!
Here’s one more photo of the Spittelau waste incineration plant with some interesting details on the wall in front…Hehe! 😛 What i also found interesting, is that the chimney was not active but the sky does look like smoke that’s coming out of it, doesn’t it? I also love all the blue elements that co-exist in this frame! Will be happy to read your comments and wishing you all a super awesome weekend! Alex out XD
Last week of the Web Design module is here! XD I have no idea what the next week will bring in terms of the internship but i know i will have less hours and that means more time for me and my photography! 😀 I’m super excited!
Here’s a photo from last summer again, the Spittelau waste incineration plant against a lovely dramatic sky! Love them clouds! ❤ The façade of the building was redesigned by eco-architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser after a major fire in 1989, giving it this unique and colorful appearance. It’s definitely an eye-catcher!
Spring is here and i hope you are all having a beautiful time. My sympathies go to all the people with allergies! I had very little time with my studies to take photos of the flowers and the bees but i will make a spring post before summer comes 😛 That’s a realistic goal i think!
But kidding aside, in 2 weeks time, the web-design module will be done!!! And that means going back to the regular 7:30-15:00 schedule, rather than the brutal 7:30-16:30, and constant migraines from 9 hours sitting in front of a computer screen! The next 4 months will be some kind of internship, practicing all the things we learned and also doing our own projects! I really look forward to that! I need to get back on track with my things and do what i love asap! 🙂 I need to get my creative juices running again!
If not now, when? When everything is blooming and so much new energy and possibilities are around, i say the time is now! 😉
the other is made out of reflections and fragments of reality
that stand on true foundations still.
Both sides are burning, yearning to feel the same
mirroring each other
they communicate much more than the eye can see.
Only way you can understand it
is to let go of what you think you knew
and let your heart feel the glory
without bounds, without fear.
Hello dear friends,
It’s been the most weird and but also beautiful time for me. The longer study times (7:30 until 16:30) during the very intensive Web-Design module, are exhausting, especially for a very active person like me, who is forced to sit in front of a computer the whole day, i’m turning into a zombie couch-potato. P.s. we don’t even have an internet connection there, so no side-browsing or time to check social media, etc! This whole thing has been taking toll in many aspects of my life but i’m still thankful that i can learn so many new things that will definitely help me progress.
My photography has been temporarily put on the back burner again, my personal life and my well being need to come first but do not fear, i will keep coming back again. This blog and the lovely community here mean too much to me, so even if i wander away for some time i will always find my way back.
Hope you are all doing well! Sending all my love from the sunny but cold Vienna…Waiting for the spring to come 😀
Summer is definitely here and Austria might not have seas but it’s blessed with beautiful lakes and rivers. In Vienna, the Danube river is an excellent alternative for the hot summer days and Viennese people sure know how to enjoy it 😀
There is a Wakeboarding lift in the New Danube area, which i find totally cool! I stayed there and watched for a few minutes, some guys did real awesome tricks, others kept falling. I’ve also noticed quite a few girls doing this, so that was refreshing to see! Austrian girls are definitely more sporty than Greek girls… sorry to say that girls but you know it’s true! I was considered “extreme” cause i was riding a bike… Well, maybe i was a bit “extreme” cause i was running like hell and jumping off dirt mounts like there was no tomorrow! It’s the need for speed, it’s not my fault 😛 But yeah, i find it really nice to see so many girls here involved into all kinds of sports! 😀
Here is another perspective of the same sunset that is also depicted in my last photo “Duality“. This one was taken from a bridge, not water level and it was taken about 7 minutes later. The sky was changing every minute and i was running like crazy trying to get to different locations so i can take as many different shots as i could. You don’t get such a sky every day… ❤
Yes, it’s me again, so soon! Inspiration is back and how can it not be with these amazing skies that take over Vienna every evening?… It’s been crazy
Yesterday, it was an amazing cloudy day from the get go, at around 7pm when i finally decided to go for a walk with my camera hoping to catch a nice sunset, all clouds had disappeared… I was almost ready to give up and go back home but still, i kept walking around aimlessly, cursing the clear blue sky for not being good enough for photos! At about 8pm, some clouds started to appear but still not enough to make it interesting. The sunset here is officially at 8:45pm, so i was hoping that until then the scenery might change…
So then the wind started to get stronger, the few clouds that were present started to turn dark, rain was coming! I put on my rain jacket and got ready for action! At 8:30pm the whole sky was filled with clouds and the sun was shyly giving away some warm rays as it started to decent on the horizon. I started to run in the rain to reach a good spot to take my photos. I thought going down to the water level might be interesting and but that took some time and by then it was already 8:40pm and the sun was giving away a last but stronger blast of beauty!
I was in the right place, at the right time! I immediately noticed, that right in front of my feet there was a fight going on between the warm and the cold, the day and the night and i was standing right in the middle… At 8:41pm, i took this shot and i can honestly say that it has been a really long time since i was so excited and emotional about a photo i took… So here it is… Nature’s masterpiece in all its glory!
