Summer, warm evenings, ice cream and walks outside, fresh water tanks all over Vienna and too much sunlight for photography – the memories of summer 2015 came back with these analog pictures. It’s amazing how daily moments that seemed usual, now, in these pictures, seem magical. Do you sometimes also notice, how you forget to enjoy the moments and enjoy them only later in pictures? If not, you’re lucky. If yes, share please! And now enjoy my analog summer 2015.
Burggarten during analog summer
My favorite spot of the city at every time is Burggarten. During this analog summer it was apparently also frequently visited by me and many tourists taking pictures with Mozart and Goethe statues.
The typical Viennese coffee houses can be exchanged for park benches in summer months– even though I’ve never read a book in the park. Gladly the next summer is already on the way!
These water talks are the best! These hot summers in Vienna would be a lot worse without the free water supply. But you have to admit, they are not super adorably designed. Like a robot from space – because space and robots are two things I don’t like thinking about so much.
Modular Festival in Augsburg
This cute festival in Augsburg is my favorite one. Not that I’ve been to many music festivals, but this one feels like home. It’s in my hometown, yes, but its concept is also very cute. It’s music, diverse regional food and coffee shops have their stands, art projects, flea market and clothes swapping and other interactive things. This summer 2015 we played pool, drew mangas and had amazing talks at the pond inside the park.
Analog at Naschmarkt
It’s incredible to see how Naschmarkt is closed during daylight – because now, in winter / spring it’s never closed when there is sunlight.
Analog summer round the ring
Colored pants going to the opera house – summers is the time when people start wearing more colors, compared to all gray and black now. The ring, in case you don’t know, is the word for the area around the first district with most important Viennese buildings on it: Parliament, Opera House, Museums, Town Square, Theatres, University and more.
You might think during summer nights the streets might be full of people enjoying life – but you can see, it’s not the case. What are they all up to? Working? Sitting in air-conditioned rooms? Left on vacation? I couldn’t figure out yet.
And my room is of course also nice in summers. I still can’t figure out how these green-red light combinations appeared. Green from inside, red from outside?
Even though analog photography makes no sense at all, because it’s expensive, insecure and time demanding, I will never stop loving it. When was the last time you were using an analog camera?
