  1. Taken at one of our main train stations (Westbahnhof) in Vienna, Austria.

    “Rushing to the trains”

    Right after I took that shot, one of the station emploeeys came over. I thought that he will tell me that I’m not allowed to take pictures here (as has happened to a fellow photographer that day in this train station), but instead he asked if he should make some more shadows for me and if my camera is a Leica. I had my X-Pro 1 and the 35mm f/1.4 with me and we started talking about photography for like 20 minutes, as he is also a photographer.

  2. Taken on one of my first street photo walks; Arcaded sidewalk near Karlsplatz (Status), Munich

  3. Taken in the narrow lanes of Alfama in Lisbon, Portugal on a very recent trip.
