still just catching up. this blog features some frames from vienna, but more importantly photos from a few days long trip to london in august 2014. as a street photographer, my view of this city was shaped a lot by in-public photographers, like matt stuart but also by benchmarks set by martin parr and others. although I only had a few days, I’m pretty happy with the outcome. It has been relieving to shoot in a new city, that has it’s very own character and I enjoyed it a lot to capture it in my way.

frozen kebap meat
he doesn't seem to be cagey about his identity
not a very well-thought-out pun..
someone once told me i should take photos of more beautiful women on the street, to show that vienna is a fashionable city, where lots of "babes" walk the streets.. so I tried to set a different, less negative (but more sexist?) focus, for a day or two, but it felt quite stupid and I didn't come up with much, so I went back to my usual thing..
..back in ottakring.

hi! gilbert and george
something weird happened here.. the lens was so close to that bar, that the auto-focus went bogus and it seems that there is some sort of distortion. i was a bit pissed right after taking that photo because I knew it was completely out of focus.. but now i think it's pretty cool.
a graffiti i liked

great view from there
