Since two weeks I’m a proud owner of a new lens (Nikkor 28-300) for Zilla (Nikon D750) as well as an unhappy person, because the weather is too awful to do a proper photo walk. It’s cold and rainy. Lucky me, last weekend I spent 10 minutes more with my parents, therefore I didn’t drive right into a gigantic hailstorm. The streets were either covered with hailstones or with mud from the slopes besides the street. Really scary and disgusting weather! Therefore I took in two weeks only a few pictures, some of them when I walked with Felix to some appointments in the inner city.
Of course I had to photograph my favorite monument: Maria Theresia (1717-1780), the only female ruler of the Habsburg family. Funny most people forget, that she was not an elected and ruling empress but empress by marriage. I was impressed by the lens, because I came almost eye-to-eye with her majesty. When I crossed the Ring I decided to photograph the monument of Prince Eugen (1663-1736) – yes, again, because I like the monument. I didn’t move around, but photographed right from the same spot. Thanks to the lens, Felix didn’t scare the ducks, because I didn’t need to come closer. Jeez, with the last picture I almost knocked Prince Eugen from his horse!
