Vienna in Black & White!

Street scenes in Vienna over the last few days.
With a quick glance it’s Kinda hard to figure out the decade in some shots isn’t it?
Vienna shows her classic, unchanging dignity in these shots.
But the cars, bikes, helmets and many other clues reveal the truth.


Jim gives away some more clues, but this tacky ad gives it up completely. Too bad, it’s 2013 and tacky ads are here to stay.
Cheers to you from beautiful old Vienna!

  1. The black and white photos are really attractive.I can see you are having a great time.Thank you for posting these gorgeous photographs.

    1. The next city I go to, I may try and take a few photos that give us no clues to the timeframe and see if anyone can find something I neglected to notice. The old cities in black and white are eerie. They look like the past moving forward.

  2. what stunning architecture, and done in black & white its fabulous. I’ve been experimenting with b & w…love the way it changes a color shot! looks like you are having a wonderful time…I so enjoy see the places you visit…thank you!

      1. I’m going to try and do a post about Prague where I eliminate as many clues to the era as possible. Readers can look for clues that I missed. I love the BW and this my first time doing it. Cheers & thank you!

      1. I shot in black and white… first time really doing this. Now I am shooting about 10% of my Prgaue photos in B/W and trying to control for any time frame clues. What fun!! Cheers to you from Prague & thank you too!

    Beautiful images. Can’t wait to share with a friend who spent time in Vienna as a child. We’ll see what memories your photos spark. πŸ˜‰

  4. That’s my kind of photography – stunning! Love your colour work but there is something very base level about black and white that is quite captivating – these shots are beautiful!

    1. Thank you so much. This was my first time trying B/W and I was surprised with the result, especially in Europe where if you are careful you can take a shot and have no clue to the decade, sometimes the century!! I am doing this now in Prague part of the time and like the results and will also try it in Berlin. Thank you for the encouragement!
