Cruisin' in the south

I was on a little trip down to styria, carinthia, back to styria(graz) for lunch & coffee and back home in the evening. I don't know the exact distance, but I was probably driving 800km...

Active(ly) Busy(ness)

I'm a bit busy this time - it's not so easy to post pics regularly. That's why I'd like to draw your attention to red du[nua] where I'm running a photography activity with a couple of friends (everybody who comes through linz is welcome) where we take photos at different locations in town, mostly in the dark hours after work.

Here are two pics from yesterdays session (exclusively for documensation)
My comrades at work - all blur:

Travelling folks, taking out their cameras after they saw us shooting:

The Riddler

So, would you like to hear about a riddler who didn't dress in toxic green, but in colors of brown and gray, who always had a friendly smile?
His favorite joke was:

What's that?
It goes tic toc tic toc, it hangs on the wall,
and if it falls down, the clock is kaput?

Anyways, he loved kids, painting, driving, "Kling Glöckchen", colored trees in autumn, the neighbors dog and a lot of other stuff...
I was thinking of him a lot the last few days, and yesterday when i was walking around to take some pictures he came through. I don't know, many of my photos are just not how I would shoot them, they are more like the nice, (cheesy) views we know from the "Heimatfilme" - I guess this genre is not known in english speaking countries, because the translation I found is "sentimental film with regional background" - think of it as "western" just without the west...

Pfiat di!

Visiting Grampa

Yesterday we got the mountain hairdryer (foehn) all over the place and very warm weather for this time of year... I enjoyed a short walk through the old parts & realized, that the time in NY changed my way of looking. I kind of explore my hometown as if it was a new town, unknown to me. Weird & cool...
