Vienna Street and a Walk with Klara

Well, after a long time of not shooting much street, here comes the longest entry I’ve ever put together. So how’s that you may wonder… There’s several reasons, one of them was having a week of holidays and so being able to clear my head, but more important was that Klara Yoon, a street photographer from Berlin, was in Vienna, and asked me if I wanted to meet up. We  shot some street together, and I have to say, it was such great fun! I so enjoyed it – but let’s start from the beginning…

These are still a few shots from back in April and May…

Random stuff, like these two…

…or a broken bike.

Waiting at Frankfurt Airport.

Back in Vienna.

Boxes.

Watching a football match.

Here I was already on may way to meet Klara.

Guess he would qualify as Cafe Latte Daddy in Sweden…

I’ve been following Klara’s blog for a while, so I was happy to finally meet her for real. After we had a cup of coffee we went for a photowalk (dunno why, but somehow I don’t like this word…). To be honest, as much I was looking forward to shoot with someone, as opposed to usually roaming the streets all by myself, I also had my doubts if it really would work out. I usually don’t take many pictures, so I was unsure what to expect. But I have to say, it was such great fun! Also people didn’t seem to mind at all being photographed by two little girls! A combination I can only recommend (sorry, guys!). It was also interesting to see how we often saw the same situations, so I really look forward to see Klara’s blog entry to compare what she took away from our walk. And now, enough talking, here are the pictures (here is Klara’s entry).

Taking pictures of people taking pictures.

Pretty sure Klara’s version will be better, should have gone for a second shot…

Klara in action.

Initially the woman’s bag caught my eye, but the two guys thought it was them we were taking pictures of, so they started posing for us…

He tried to get out of my frame! 🙂

Teenage love.

A split second too late… He was quick, I wasn’t…

Girls and boys.

These two were cleaning leeks on the market, I chickened out and just took a picture from the side…

Have to say I really struggle with exposing correctly in bright light in summer, dunno why so many people call it “good light”, probably they mistake good for bright… Whatever…

Quick meal.

He was buying flowers, can’t tell if he looked after the girls or if he just wanted to find out what I was taking pictures of…

Klara.

Wheel in cafe.

Saw Klara shooting this as well, again will be interesting to see her version.

Teenage love.

Think that was the last picture I took before Klara had to leave to catch her train… Thanks for that lovely afternoon, hope to meet again soon!

So, back to random findings in Vienna! A sleeping guy for example…

She videotapes everything, so that he can watch it back home, as he was too busy to look at the real thing…

Friendly.

Not teenage anymore, but hopefully still love.

Ironing board.

Car talk (I guess).

Car cleaning.

Smoke break.

Connected.

Disconnected.

This looked funny… Somehow…

  1. Nice work. It’s always fun to shoot with another person. I like the first bicycle photo – shame about the wheel (is it that bike’s wheel in the cafe?).

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Very cool! Great that you guys met up, I also really like her work! Nice post Anja, you really put me in the moment and now I really feel like shooting street again!
