Random Shots: Vienna with the Nikon L35AF

Back in June we went to Vienna for the Black Sabbath concert. For the day after, I packed my Nikon L35AF. At the moment it’s the only point and shoot camera I use: I sold my broken Petri Color 35 and don’t use the Olympus Go 100 anymore.

A classic sightseeing tour I hardly ever did when I lived in Vienna.

Pacific Coast Highway Road Trip as its best

Road Trip on the Pacific Coast Highway

Today I stumbled upon this video from Mike Bishop and it really triggers my wanderlust. The good thing is, I’m already planning our next trip to the US.


Monochrome Vienna: First District

When I visited Vienna in July, I brought my Holga camera with me. There was not very much time for an extensive photowalk, but I managed to take a few shots, wandering around the first district. It was a hot and humid day – and the city center was full of school classes and tourists. Not my type of an ideal day in the very heart of Vienna. At first, I went to the imperial palace and the park. The library there happens to be my old working place. Then I quickly escaped the tourist madness and turned to lesser known streets and hidden places.
