   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…

Hello my dear friends,

  Nope, it’s not snowing again. After the “snowstorm”, we had so many amazing and sunny days, with clear blue skies and i must admit i spent most of my time taking really long walks, 15km every day at least and kinda lacked any motivation to sit down and edit grey and snowy photos. Today it’s been raining so i thought it was about time, old snowy photos are coming up!!!  ❄❄❄

   Yesterday we had a little snowstorm in Vienna! 😀 I might have been the only person who was really excited and was running outside with a huge smile, ignoring the strong wind and the dense snowfall! What a day it was! 😀 Today it is all gone but since yours truly spend more than 3 hours taking photos yesterday, there are many shots to be posted in the following days! 😉

P.s. The Rainsleeve thingy i bought from eBay to protect my camera from rain/snow, worked quite well. I had to tape the lens opening side on the lens hood itself cause the drawstring didn’t secure tightly enough and would move exposing the lens when i focused…but for 7$ / 2 pieces, you can’t complain 🙂

  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…

Floridotower

  Exploring the neighborhood has been really fun and rewarding so far. I guess living outside of the city center has its advantages! 😉 I cannot get enough of the beautiful nature that surrounds the area and i already envision these scenes with snow! Floridotower is an office complex located in Floridsdorf (21st District of Vienna) and it reaches the height of 113 meters! More photos of the water park coming soon! 😀
