Here’s the second installment of the Riga shots. After finishing the project in Riga I went to the countryside in Austria and also to Vienna. 

As always Tri-X at boxspeed and pushed to 800, developed in Xtol 1+1.

Rollei Retro 100, developed in Rodinal 1+50.


 

Occupy Riga

 

 

Shooting in the Art Noveau district

 

It was one of the longest shooting days/nights. Agnes and Ray, still smiling at 2 am.

 

Pasquale, Swiss actor

 

Next day, slept until afternoon and went out for food

 

Mormon missionaries

 

 

 

Old Town

 

Next day, stumbled into a photo session in a bakery

 

After weeks of sunshine and incredible light, it didn’t stop raining for days

 

 

 

Enough of the food from the catering trucks. The only time we managed to get together to cook.

 

We all craved Korean food. Chicken stew in the making

 

Je-Young

 

View into the backyard

 

Last breakfast with Shin-Ae

 

Killing time at the airport

 

 

This lady was iphone savvy!

 

Landed in Vienna

 

Arrived in the Waldviertel. Finishing the Rollei Retro 100 which I started in Riga

 

Linde, photographed her a dozen times, still super shy in front of the cam

 

Back to Tri-X. After weeks of being with people 24/7 this was just what I needed.

 

Hiking up to the Nebelstein

 

 

Top of the mountain

 

Waiting for Nepalese curry

 

Arjan from Kathmandu showing pictures of his family. He’s a trekking guide in the Himalaya

 

 

Tri-X +1 from here

 

Rafaela and Dominik

 

 

 

Train ride to Vienna

 

 

 

Arrived!

 

 

 

 

Gyros or Moussaka?

 

Axel

 

Overexposed almost an entire roll, happens when you ignore the light meter.

 

Karlskirche

 

Lazy zone focussing

 

Naschmarkt

 

Back to Tri-X at boxspeed

 

Lunch at Der Zweitbeste

 

Kunsthallencafe

 

 

 

 

 

 

The kids went crazy over a dead pigeon (you can see it in the back on the right), they poured water over it trying to bring it back to life. Shortly after they gave up, I took this. One of my favorites from Vienna I think.

 

Burgring

 

Overprotective?

 

In front of the Natural History Museum

 

 

Museumsquartier

 

 

After visiting the Leica shop at Westbahnstr. Very nice guys and awesome 2nd hand / vintage stuff.

 

Pizzeria

 

I met up with Anja, I’ve been following her blog for a while and was excited to meet her finally in person

 

See Anja’s shots here

 

She took me to some nice streets

 

 

 

 

 

Anja

 

We were waiting for something to happen, it didn’t, so we took photos of each other

 

People reacted differently to two little women shooting with rangefinders

 

Didn’t get any crap at all, quite the opposite instead

 

 

 

Naschmarkt! Anja took the shot of the two guys cutting leaks in the back, I chickened out.

 

It’s also quite interesting to see how she framed the same scenes, I think this one is almost identical

 

 

Rosenkönigin

 

 

Shooting you shooting me 

 

Shadow selfie

 

 

 

This was the last shot I took with her, I was sad to part, I could have gone on for hours, was having too much fun with her.

 

Somewhere in the 18. district
