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.
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
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
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
Gyros or Moussaka?
Overexposed almost an entire roll, happens when you ignore the light meter.
Lazy zone focussing
Back to Tri-X at boxspeed
Lunch at Der Zweitbeste
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.
In front of the Natural History Museum
After visiting the Leica shop at Westbahnstr. Very nice guys and awesome 2nd hand / vintage stuff.
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
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
Shooting you shooting me
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
