Vienna June & July

As promised in the last entry, finally a bit more of my analog stuff. First few pictures were taken with my Kiev4 rangefinder – the Russian Lady on APX 100 film. We had some pretty hot and sunny days in Vienna. The light was already pretty low as I took this one.

Security Service in Vienna’s first district. If you need some security, you know where to find these guys!

She obviously hid away from the heat and found herself a nice place in the shadow to read a book.

Was waiting for some friends in a shopping mall, where they had this racing track set up. Actually it was meant for all fathers, as it was shortly befor Father’s Day, but the kids enjoyed it as well! Writing says something like “there’s always something going on here”.

Tourists seeking refreshment…

When I came to work the next day, there were firefighters all around the building, and when I went inside I heard that there had been a fire in one of the fuse boxes. I quickly went upstairs to tell the girls that we’d better leave the building and so we waited outside. Nobody informed us what was going on, so we dicided to have a coffe in the cafe opposite our office building. And then I spotted on of the firefighters walking past us with an ice cream, so I followed him and took this picture. We then assumed that it was not really a dangerous fire, otherwise he’d probably not have ice cream (at least we hoped so).

Took another one of him as they drove past us and left the scene… Turned out it really was not that dangerous, we had no electricity for the next hours, but after that – back to business as usual!

Shadows and light in the first district.

People watching a demonstration – the sign says “Abschleppzone” (tow off zone, but has a double meaning – also means hook up zone in german… don’t know if it translates at all). Probably only my twisted sense of humour…


People waiting for the demonstration to start.

Little girl spotted me taking the picture!

Flags ready for the demo…

Ah, well, football! Public viewing zone (actually a restaurant that put up a big screen), cleaning in the morning before the fun starts.

F1 Grand Prix before the match.

Different film (LegacyPro 100), different camera (Leica M6, Summicron-M 1:2,0/50), same place. Again, someone spotted me taking the picture…

Ballack also watched the match!

Gay Pride Vienna, only a few pictures, as I had to leave before it even started…

Cute, isn’t he?!

German fans also at the Gay Pride…

Posing for the press.

On my way home – these guys play great Dixieland Jazz! Really cool!

That’s all for today, there’s more to come soon!

Hope you enjoyed it, let me know what you think!
