Film Friday 

We didn’t go inside Klosterneuburg Abbey, just grazed the parameter for a short time.  

The Abbey has a huge public space for families complete with playground equipment and a sandbox the size of a swimming pool. Get this: the sand is purple! (Ps: obviously, I screwed up the timing on my last two posts. This was supposed to post yesterday and yesterday’s was meant for today)

Happy, happy, fun waste management factory in Vienna.  All kinds of history and gardens and museums and Beethoven destinations in that city and yes, I made a point of going to a factory. That processes trash.

Film vs Digital 

Piazza San Marco, Venice.  It was a flooded, clusterfuck of humanity and not even remotely enjoyable being there during the day during high season.  Plus half of the basilica was covered in scaffolding.  I know it’s the once place to see if you’re going to Venice, but not under those conditions.   I hear the inside of San Marco is gorgeous, but I can’t confirm that.  I wasn’t willing to walk through water to stand in line on scaffolding to view it with hundreds around me all vying for the same photo op.  

We stumbled upon it once more at night (we had no intention of returning, but sometimes Venice makes decisions for you). It was much more tolerable. 

Ferris wheel on color film. Ferris wheel on black and white film. Ferris wheel on a digital card.  Ferris wheel during the day. Ferris wheel at night. I admit, I was a bit obsessed. 

Hungary has a Statue of Liberty (Liberty Statue)—America doesn’t have a monopoly on such things.  It was great because to get to her all I had to do was walk there, which I did one morning.  

She sits atop a hill, which one hikes to reach. No massive crowds (at least, not in the early morning). No huge lines. No security points at three different places. No fee to get in. The park is peppered with graffiti and signs of homeless people residing there on warm nights, which they have the liberty to do I suppose.  

Proud to be part of this upcoming exhibition.  More info as the opening approaches.  

Experimented with my 18mm on the film camera a bit while overseas. The vignette is from the way the lens sits on the camera; I didn’t add it in post. New film too, which was forced upon me because I waited too long to order it and my usual choice wasn’t in stock.   I think I may have to print this one.  
(PS: I took a LOT of photos of that ferris wheel. Series upcoming.)

As noted earlier, I took 10 rolls of film while I was overseas, which was actually fewer than I intended.  Meaning I took more digital shots that I intended too. I haven’t been in an editing mood, so I’ve got some catching up to do. 

Here’s my 3rd series from the trip: splashes of red at night  

Film Friday 
I sent off 10 rolls of film from my trip which should be available to me in the next day or two.  Until then, here’s a scene from one of my favorite buildings at OU: the workshop next to the engineering building where all the teams build their cool gizmos.
