Der fliegende Baron

Der fliegende Baron Flying Baron One of the nice things about the frequent print exercise is that it servers as an opportunity to print what we might call record shots (I think Mike Johnston coined the term, and it suits better then “social snap”). When my friend Johannes still lived in the 16th district in [---]

Café II

Cafe II Myself in a window – through a window, with Monika, coffee and tee, outside Café Stein (for those who know it). Speaking of windows, and shooting cameras with window-finders (if you’re asking yourself “wft is a window-finder?”, don’t worry, an explanation is coming within the next few years, or google if you don’t mind [---]

Diese Seite

Diese Seite Here is one of my photos that always jumped at me (albeit gently) when browsing the archives, but of which I never could satisfactory explain why I like it. Remembering that the print exercise is about printing at all, such a photo is perfectly suited. The wish to see it on paper demands some [---]

Am Schafberg

Am Schafberg This photo should not exist at all. Because someone said that only idiots shoot straight into the sun. And what about ugly side effects like lens flare, chromatic aberrations and reduced contrast? As ridiculous as all these reservations might be, and as easy the last photo was to print, as – no, not [---]

Park I

Park I After the Vodoo Lounge we need some fresh air, which we find en masse in Pötzleinsdorfer Park. One year after the making of last entry’s photo, I carried around a Minolta Himatic 7 or so. As mentioned I sold the Yashica GSN due to a stiff focus ring, but I loved the lens [---]

The Bar II

Die Bar II Vodoo is still with us as of 2013. The Yashica GSN which signs responsible for this one is long gone, but sometimes I do miss her. 45 1.7, mmh. This was also quite easy to get “right”. The quotes are there because what is right can be quite subjective within a certain [---]

Café I

Café I There was a time when I really liked to go there, Rokko Ice Saloon at Kutschkermarkt. However, the seats are orange and ugly now, and the place is less charming on the second glance. Because basically it is a noisy and greyish venue, with air “enhanced” from Gentzgasse and the sun hiding behind [---]

Die Bar I

Die Bar I The bar is closed now and I won’t miss it for sure. But the mirror and back lit bottles … This was shot on 400 Film (TriX or Apx, not sure) in the lovely Yashica Electro GSN. I think the lens had some magic, especially at night at 1.7. The neg is slightly [---]

Das gute Leben

Das gute Leben This is a photo from a wedding that ticked some box inside my head. I wanted to see it on paper and decided that it would be perfect for the frequent print exercise: not part of a series; no special meaning; just liked by me; For printing, this photo is a tough [---]

Spontane Ruhe vor Straßenbahn

Spontane Ruhe vor der Straßenbahn I think that was around winter ’05/’06 at the tram stop Spitalgasse / Wärhingerstrasse. Focus was by Zen, and I think so everything came together nicely. Looking at the print on RC paper, I am not quite sure if I like the result, will have to try that on fibre. [---]
