More Random II

It took me ages to finish those few rolls I shot in the last months. Finally enough pictures for a short entry with some random pics.

Think these two girls were posing for a photo. 🙂

Snow (so now you know how long it took me to finish those rolls of film!).

On a plane to London.

In a pub in the UK. His night didn’t seem to be nice as pie…

At Costa Coffee.

Heading back to Heathrow. Rain. What else.

Rubbish (those who recognise the newspaper, yes, it’s rubbish).

Grounded.

First days of spring and finally some sun.

Stripes, no stars.

Trousers & jacket – flea market leftovers.

Snapping away.

Love.

Sunlight. 🙂

The standoff.

Beech tree in a park in Bregenz. I spent many lunch breaks under or sitting in that tree back in school.

Last Frames of the Old Year

Thought I’d share the last few frames of the old year with you.

Twins.

Working place of a Christmas tree vendor.

Angels also do window shopping sometimes.

The writing on the bench says “Christmas is going to be wonderful”.

People buying Christmas trees on 23rd of December.

On the morning of 24th of December I went on a small tour to wish all my colleagues in Vienna a Merry Christmas, as I already had holidays. Walked through the city and watched other people being in a hurry and carrying home their Christmas trees.

The guy walking around the corner looks a bit like Jean Reno to me.

More Christmas tree carrying.

Snack while reading the latest news.

And a last one on my way home.

So, that’s it for 2010!

I wish you all a happy new year!

Winter in Vienna, December 2010

Again be prepared for lots of snow, I can’t help it. I just have to take pictures when it snows, no matter how tired I am or how late it is.

Took this picture during my lunch break. Don’t know where that massive glow on the table comes from.

I know it’s a cliché shot, but I couldn’t resist.

Christmas trees everywhere.

Shoveling snow.

Pattern.

Paperbag in the snow.

Preparing the little one for the cold weather.

Pattern.

Christmas market.

Poor Christmas tree was chained to the wall.

First district at night covered in snow. And again lots of Christmas trees everywhere.

Christmas lights. You can see that it was snowing quite heavily that night.

Frosty the Snowman…

More snow…

And more Christmas lights…

Really liked how this one turned out…

George Clooney watching over the closed Christmas market.

Found two little snowmen on the closed market and used my last two frames of the roll for them.

Next entry coming soon, I think there will be more snow, not sure though, Christmas always seems to blur my memory…

First Snow

Winter has arrived as it seems, since last Sunday Vienna is covered in snow. I have to admit, I love snow. Even the smell of snow makes me happy. Considered this, Vienna is for sure not the best place to live, as it snows way to little for my taste, even more so when you have grown up in the West of Austria, where there’s usually lots of snow.

It’s probably also a childhood memory thing, why I love snow so much, don’t know. Whenever it starts snowing, I go for a walk in the snow, even if it’s in the middle of the night. Winter nights are so peaceful, everythings looks beautiful and clean, it’s quiet and the air has that fresh, slightly smoky smell.

Well, as it did finally snow, I took pictures of the city covered in snow. I was only able to take pictures after work (Christmas time is coming – so long working hours), which means again it was already dark outside, but the snow made everything really bright – amazing how much more light there is as soon as there is snow.

The first few pictures were taken a few days before it started to snow.

Took this one while I was sitting in a McDonalds.

A Christmasy version of a merry-go-round. Even the Coke Christmas truck was there…

Lonely cup of mulled wine at the Christmas market. Love how the shiny table cloth stuff turned out.

Misplaced shopping carts.

Okay, now for the snowy part. Went out when it started to snow, it was around 10 pm. Found a Christmas tree covered in snow. The picture came out pretty dark, but after all it was dark and I liked how it looked…

Christmas tree and church windows.

Vienna streets at night, everything covered in snow.

Another evening, around St. Stephen’s cathedral, 1st district. I really hate it when they start clearing the roads, then you end up with brown mush of snow insted of proper, beautiful snow… Ugh… But a bit of nice snow was still left.

Workers clearing the street.

Fairy lights everywhere…

Liked how this one turned out. See the mush?

Glowing orbs.

You need lots of these to put up all the fairy lights in the streets.

Frozen King Drink.

More Christmas trees.

Pure Austrian Christmas kitsch- how more Austrian can you get?! Mozartkugel glitter balls on a snow covered Christmas tree.

Closing time for the sweet shop.

Wish you all a wonderful Winter time with lots of snow, or – if you don’t like snow and Winter – warm and cosy moments at home!
