back from emo-city

Finally back from Vienna, the city of emo πŸ˜€ .. or lets say multi-cultural city of human creatures with different styles πŸ˜‰ haha. Ok, coming back from ironic .. the trip was pure fun. Met up with Johannes, Sebastian & Sarah (see my blog-roll) and of course with our host for the two days, Werner (beachdair.deviantart.com).

I did a lot of shots that two days in Vienna, .. shot two rolls of film with the Olympus OM-1 (attached the 50/1.8) .. one FP4 I got the days before from Markus (geek7.deviantart.com) and another APX100 I got from Werner on sunday before walking to the city center (as I was sure, I will need to change on that walk .. and so it was .. full FP4, .. had to change to APX at the Stephansplatz, right when seeing some nice photo subjects, .. damn)

So we started our trip on Sunday morning, arriving Vienna at 11 A.M. .. getting our things to Werner’s flat as he came to the station and picked us up .. took tram to flat, left the bags there and headed to city center to meet up with our friends. So in mid-afternoon with came together on Mariahilfer Street and walked around .. got to Stephansplatz, Burggarten, Volksgarten and many more streets .. took many photos on that trip and had fun talking and watching crazy people .. many emos of course πŸ˜€ haha. Later on we had to say good bye and they left us, .. we went home and in the evening did some chilling in an irish pub .. the Molly Darcy’s .. really nice pub .. have to visit it again next time I’m in Vienna! Monday was shopping day, after a short sleep of some 3 to 4 hours .. we went to the shopping streets of the city center .. Mariahilfer again, Westbahn Street .. had to buy some film (tri-x, apx, .. also looking for delta and plus-x but didn’t get those two), paper and chemicals for the lab and myself got a little bag for cam + max. 2 lenses (needed something like this for short trips, to leave the big ones at home) and also looked for shirts, but I just bought a tie with poker cards instead of a shirt. So in the end, we had a good day on monday, .. really hot and sunny again .. got most of the things we wanted and in the end left Vienna at 5 P.M. .. arriving home at 9 P.M. .. happy but tired πŸ˜€ .. the trip was good, hope to do make something like this soon again .. but I’ll wait for the cheap summer tickets of austrian railways .. 48 (24 in one direction) euros is way too much money for it, .. summer will bring more action for less money.

So here are the photos .. for the moment just the digital ones, .. haven’t developed the two rolls so far, one isn’t finished yet (just need two or three pics to shoot tomorrow) and then will do so on Monday or Tuesday. Some digital ones, .. nonetheless hope you like them.

vienna calling

Yeah another week, .. university finished for that one (had a boring lecture today) .. now waiting for weekend. Why? .. cause I’m excited about my trip to Vienna on sunday. Plans said we will go on saturday and just for some hours, .. but we changed and now it’s a sunday to monday trip. Markus (http://geek7.deviantart.com) will be with me and we gonna meet a lot of friends we first met in August last year, when staying one week in Vienna and had a devmeet there.

So now it’s just for two days, but looks like sunday will be funday πŸ˜€ .. meeting with our good friend Werner (http://beachdair.deviantart.com), also our host for that days, .. and hopefully some deviants like Sebastian and Johannes (you have links to their blogs on my blogroll). Would be nice to meet Severin again, but not so sure if he gonna have time. Sunday will be photo day, .. shooting street most of the time, .. goin to have a drink with friends .. and much more. πŸ˜‰

Monday then we will head to Mariahilferstrasse and Westbahnstrasse to have an awesome shopping tour πŸ˜€ .. ok we just need loads of film (APX 100, Tri-X 400, Plus-X 125 .. maybe some APX 400 too) and Markus wants some chemicals and paper for his darkroom. I will look for some new analogue cam .. as far as I won’t get one before (just got an info on a used Olympus OM-1 I could get until our departure .. so I would have it ready for weekend .. and cheaper than all possible offers in Vienna I think).

So after all, here are some picture from our last street tour through the city center of Klagenfurt .. photos I missed last time (ok I didn’t want to post them at once).

metallica greets πŸ˜‰

finally that fits the title .. calling

on the streets

Went to the city on wednesday to have some photo action on the streets. In the morning I walked alone, had most of my equipment with me and didn’t make a really good job on myself .. just wondering about my manner.

So later, in the afternoon, called Markus (geek7 from deviantart) and he came to my place, wanted to give me his AE-1 with 50/1.8, but he missed to change the batteries .. so no good for me .. but maybe it was the best thing so, as I took his Sigma 30mm f1.4, removed the battery grip from my EOS 350D and so we walked .. me with that combination and he with his VoigtlΓ€nder Bessa.

Here are some shots from that afternoon …

oh my f****** goodness (express yourself)

she had this “look” in her face, .. hm

looks like they had a party there at the crossing

on the phone, .. nothing more

walking on stripes .. or maybe “striped on stripes” .. hm

someone said ” looks like *MILF* “
and I even didn’t knew what he meant by this, now I do

looking for sunglasses

trying to be a style puppy


So you see, we had a long walk trough the city center .. about 4 hours from north to south, from east to west, … – was quite fun and maybe one of my best street shooting trips so far πŸ˜‰ .. but anyway it makes no sense always goin on tour with the EOS, .. and I won’t borrow the AE-1 or AV-1 from Markus again .. I want my own one now πŸ™‚ .. so next weekend (21st) we’ll have a short one-day-visit in Vienna and do a lot of photo stuff shopping .. therefore I will look for an Olympus OM-2, hope to find one.

So for the moment, have a relaxed weekend, .. I will – even there is some university work waiting for me (one paper and an article to write).

bla bla

just testing my new blog .. welcome stranger if you read that πŸ™‚
