It is always nice when a streetshoting afternoon starts with one of those rare moments that are quite hard to explain. i knew these guys were observing me while i was approaching and when i finally passed their bench the guy in white asked: what do you do with the cam? me: taking pictures. he: pics of what? me: of you for example. within a tenth of a second he jumped up, and he made the others jump, too. weird situation, but fun.

those two were dressed exactly the same. they even had the same drink.

pumping water

i found this scenery quite nice. the small girl really wanted to get photographed. check the 100%crop underneath this image.

some random pissing dog

flowers and a cool guy

yes, we still are in Meidling, Vienna

i found this door remarkable, and this friendly fella definitely wanted to get photographed, so i combined the two.

HCB style.

Business case. the girl on top really looked ill.

random forms.

this whole area would be a very nice shooting location.


i only wished the focal point was on her face

and then i found a tabletennis venue in Margharethen.

thats it for now, next time some Brigittenau shots. stay tuned. comments are always welcome.

Stunning! HCB in Meidling?! Never knew that he actually was there. Has he read my remark on the spiral staircase picture? ;-)

Can't wait for Brigittenau! Eventhough I'd quite walk around there like Ropert Capa - it takes a lot of guts. (I should know it since I once lived there.)

Go on, Flo

quote : it takes a lot of guts... the more i shoot of these street images the more i find out that you really have to leave your comfort zone in order to get lively pics that are actually worth taking. i find it hard too, but i think you constantly have to push your own borders in order to get "good" when it comes to streetphotography. thanks for commenting flo.

You're welcome! Oh, how true: Leave your comfort zone - enter the combat zone! Or as Capa once explained: "If your pictures aren't good enough, you are not close enough."

Greets, Flo
