Propella im B72 / Wien am 17.Juli 2012

Die erste Gruppe nennt sich "The Queue" und sind aus Krems. Die sehr junge Band bestehend aus Keyboard, Gitarre und Drums spielt Rock, wobei der Keyboarder auch singt. Im Großen und Ganzen interessante Ansätze mit Entwicklungspotenzial.


"Propella" betraten gegen 22h40 die Bühne. Babl (Gitarre), Nadine (Bass) und Heike (Drums) spielten neben bekannten Songs wie "Dancer" oder "Not too late" auch einen neuen Song. Die Band ist eingespielt, die Einsätze klappen und der Sound dieser Indie-Rock- Band ist gerade durch die eigenwilligen Gesang-Parts einzigartig und unverwechselbar.

WoW (Words of wisdom the world is waiting for ;-)
Everywhere there are little stories worth to be pictured. I move around with my camera just shooting everydaylife.

When the concert is over, don't worry. Be happy that it happened.

You may learn from the past what to avoid in future.

I wonder if happiness has a colour. If so I would paint the world. I think a genius has to discover this.

Some people shorten words in a way i can't understand. Reading that tweet sounds like popping popcorn in a rapper's mouth.

Why is disappointment a feeling. It should be a gas. Then you simply open the window to let it out.

Everyday Life in Vienna - Rainy Day

Rainy day in Vienna - shot 2012-07-13 7:07am in Vienna / Landstrasse near Schlachthausgasse. I shot while walking, a spontanous idea. I held the camery in my hips. I did not correct the horizon. This wry look adds flair to the shot.

It was slightly raining. With photoshop I made up the colours and darkened the photo. Then I added lens flare, you see it on the right. The sky is photoshopped, I wanted dark clouds. In real there was a grey sky, no structured clouds. Finally I darkened the edges to make it look like from a old camera.



Subway in Vienna - shot 2012-07-16 7:06am in Vienna / U3 Ottakring. Another shot from the hips, a wry look to the coming U3. First I processed the photo with HDR to lighten the dark parts and to add more contrast to the picture. Then I darkened the lighter parts, mainly the sky. Then I added more contrast with photoshop to make it look more dirty. With increasing saturation at the train and the yellow mark on the ground to focus on the incoming train, that's what people are waiting for.
