Just another photography blog
I recently concluded our annual summer vacation in Europe. Most of my pictures can be found in my Leice M-E review. I have attached the other pictures below.
it is difficult to take bad pictures of Europe I guess.
Oooo I’d love to have one of those bikes in the last pic of bikes …Has the look of a retro cruiser. Nice ! Superb pics and hope you had a fabulous time ! Thanks for sharing ..2 thumbs UP
Those are the bikes you can rent for free in Vienna… so just go over there and you can ride one and have your wish come true!
Thanks Amara. Yes bernasvibe cycling is big in Vienna. The time I visited the weather was horrid, though.
cool. did you have fun? it looked great
I did have fun within the confines of a hot summer!!
haha cool-good that you had a great time

Great Photos at this site
Thanks for reblogging.
Thanks for dropping by.
I am happy you enjoyed the post.
I love the Cartier shot!
That’s one of my favourite. I waited fur the corner to clear of all people to take the shot. Prague is full of so many people who need social support.
love your photos, esp the black and white with the kids following….or sitting down!
That was in Munich olympic village. It was midday and burning. The kid had no concern under the light shade. Thanks for visiting.
those are some great photos! What’s with the floating man…That’s interesting.
The floating man is a trick I captured in Prague. I won’t tell you how he does it. That will take thrill out for you when you see it live.
Great captures! You have a very interesting eye and pull me in! I especially liked the juxtaposition of the woman elder with swollen legs, rolled down socks and her little dog juxtaposed beneath the Cartier sign. I also thought the photo of the small sphere on the railway tracks was lovely in its simplicity and color contrast. Thank you for sharing…
I generally look out for juxtapositions. The easy ones are old-new wealthy-poor etc. When I took that shot it reminded me of the current economic situation. Thanks.

Thanks for reblogging. I am happy you enjoyed it.
Welcome. I enjoyed it much.
nice shots – loved the one with the kid on the metal chain…congratulations on being freshly pressed.
The kid on the metal chain was in Munich next to the Opera House.
I never knew freshly pressed would keep my phone pinging nonstop with comments and followers. It is a great experience. Thanks.
oh yeah freshly pressed is a great thing – gives the reader and writer abundant opportunities to interact.
thanks for detailing that photo out; your pics are lovely.
Your post just might have saved me from a nervous breakdown. Amazing shots. Thanks for sharing
Thanks for your comments Munira. I am happy you enjoyed the post.
These are so so so good! Love them! What is that scary form inside the window in the photo after the Cartier photo?
That is a guy with his legs braced in the ‘Museum of Medieval Torture’ in Prague. I am happy you enjoyed the post.
Yes. I thought it looked like a museum. He looks kinda real. Haha.
He looks very real. He is a wax statue. The museum is a must visit. Some parts make you a little nervous.
I have been to a similarly themed museum in Vietnam but I’m sure that one is more sophisticated. Ok, I should definitely visit if I get the chance to go back to Amsterdam. Thanks!
The museums are sophisticated in Prague but I think all tortures are gross.
In Prague they call everything a museum. Some of them are just small enough to fit in a small house. The city is great though. Must visit if you have not done. Fantastic overall ambience.
I don’t really like looking at morbid things. But I would, if it will educate me about history and culture. That is very interesting what you day about Prague. So many places to go to but so little time!
Prague is a beautiful and small city. Very walkable. What I like about European cities is that usually there is a city center around which everything revolves. There is a river running through the city. The street music scene is great. Food is brilliant these days. Caters to any type of budget.
And yes Prague doesnt pretend and hide its medieval past. In a way it embraces it. It’s like ‘it is what it is’.
You seem to really like Prague. Thank you for sharing your insights about the place. I like places that have that old fashioned, historic ambience.
By the way, have you been to Dublin? Do you have any recommendations for a tourist visiting in Ireland?
Haven’t been to the UK yet. Waiting for the pound to devalue. Maybe next year. Dublin is on my list. Have a few friends and colleagues. They’ll kill me if I don’t.
Hahaha. Great then!
*say, not day.. Sorry!
Awesome photographs! Thanks for sharing!
Great pictures, the train station is my favorite although the “Floating” does make you look twice.
For me it looked like ‘chaos’ or ‘complicated’ !
Yes! I just want to organize the tracks but the thought of all that chaos running so smoothly for however long it’s been there is a nice thought. Trains are so peaceful…
Oh wait you mean the man?
Not the man. he is hovering using a trick. I won’t say because it will remove the thrill when you see one. It’s not hard.
Lovely photos! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for dropping by!
What camera did you use?
Most of the shots were captured using the Leica M-E. Some were with the Fuji X-E1.
Some of the pictures were extremely interesting. Some actually look like they could be from anywhere. I loved the one with the railroad tracks. The one with the man in mid air was great. Thanks for posting.
I am happy you appreciate the pics. Thanks.
You photographed that hovering guy in Vienna, right?
This was shot in Prague, near the powder tower. Not sure if it is the same guy you are talking about.
Maybe he’s travelling the neighboring capitals. I swear I’ve seen that guy all spring and early summer in the inner city during tourist season.
Vienna was extremely hot while I traveled. Maybe he was astute enough to move to Prague.
Your photos are stunning! And how in the world is that guy levitating? That’s pretty awesome…
That’s a simple but elaborate trick. I won’t break the suspense. You should see it. I guess it was done by someone in America has got talent. You can check Youtube.
I love the juxtapositions. Nice work!!
Thanks. Yes, I like juxtaposing things that ask questions.
Did you check my pics from the site in general as well?
Yes I love your pics! The one with the uninterested bride was my favorite.
Yes. She should have been tired after a long day. Can’t blame her. The lighting was perfect for that shot. Summer is a time of weddings all around the world.
Hey how did the floaty guy stay afloat? Is he a magician? Looks like Altair of some sort LOL.
That’s a secret I guess. I am not explaining the principle because it will take away the magic. There is a youtube video of someone performing that on America has got talent. You should check that out.
Thanks for dropping by.
Great collection! I love how humor and seriousness are put together in the same album. Saw lots of ‘suspending’ street performers in Barcelona myself in July.
Thanks. I am happy you appreciate the humor as well as the seriousness. As Martin Parr says, “there is always an agenda”!
Do you actively find scenes/things that present an agenda or are you just naturally observant? Or do you do both?
This trip was actually with my family. So I shot what came on the way as we were shuffling between museums, castles and town centers. I have developed a routine where I can shoot something rapidly as soon as I see it. I do not worry too much about framing the subject etc. It has taken 4 years since my first point-n-shoot.
Wow that is very impressive! As somebody who has no experience in photography I am surprised that most of your photos are not premeditated for a long time and yet they say so much – if you don’t mind can I reblog some of your photographs for my blogposts in the future? It’ll all be referenced of course
Sure. You can reblog the pics as long as you do not copy and post them. Please link them.
Excellent images! Congrats on being freshly pressed!
Railways in B&W looks great! Where it is located?
That is the Prague Central railway station. There is a bridge over the rails right outside the station. I took a walk one morning and found that shot.
Stunning pics. I love the railway lines: pink and blue. Was that guy really levitating?
Thanks. The railway lines was from Prague Central Station. The guy wasn’t levitating. It’s a trick, a nice one.
I really like the black and white railroad tracks. The levitating guy made me stop and think for a minute. Very nice captures!
I am happy you enjoyed the post. Thanks.
Very beautiful photos!!

Brilliant shots – is that Prague train station? I love the patterns created by the tracks, beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
Yes Ben. That is Prague railway station. I’m happy you like the pics. Thanks for your comments.
fantastic work, so many nice moments
Thanks. I’m happy you enjoyed the post.
Fascinating! Thanks for sharing. I especially love the levitating guy
Thanks for dropping by. I am happy you like the post.
great pictures! ^_^
love the details and your observation on certain things people might overlook captured in interesting angle!
Thanks for your comments. Yes, I like to observe things and try and make connections between things in a frame. Sometimes I succeed and many times I do not. That’s one of the things that inspires me to shoot more and try harder.
You have a great eye for capturing the moment.
Really gorgeous! This is making me look forward to my trip next summer!
You’ll have a wonderful time. Just check the weather charts and make sure it is not too hot. Europe is not built for the heat!!
These are incredible, great blog! I especially like the older women outside of cartier
Thanks for your comments. I am happy you enjoyed the pics. All readers’ comments inspire me to shoot more and share more.
Beautiful photos!! Something an aspiring photographer can learn from
I am happy you like the pics. The best learning I have had has been from seeing good pictures from the Masters of photography.
Great photographs! I have been to many cities in Europe, including Prague, but you showed me something new Lovely work.
I am happy you enjoyed the post. Cheers.
Enjoyed the images very much – the lines, the mirror images, the oxymoron’s that some of them contained! Beautiful work!
Thanks. I am happy you like the pics.
Well captured pictures in Leica rangefinder spirit.
I’m glad you like pics.
Love the shop window ones. And have to ask what that street performer is doing and how?!
I am happy you like the pics. The levitating guy is a nice trick. I don’t want to break the thrill of you want to see it. There is a YouTube video of someone doing the same in America has got talent.
Nice captures. Interesting characters
Thanks Simon. I am happy you like the pics.

Interesting view of life in different modes. We should slow down and enjoy the moments.
Thanks for reblogging and your comments.
Very lovely photos
Thanks. I’m glad you like the pics.
Wish I was with you! Photograph envy for the things you’ve captured!
I am happy you like the pics.
Graham Brecker: I think that you chose and executed very well – thanks for sharing. What motivated you to want to share it, though?
Thanks for your comments. When I see something interesting I shoot. When people look at my pictures and say good things it makes me happy. That’s why I share the pics through my blog.
I guess I was implying that the quality warranted a sale, rather than a donation. Anyhow, good on you for freely contributing for others and your own benefit
Thanks. Much appreciated.
Wow. really good work. Keep it up!
