Street/ 2

From a trawl through old transparencies (during my purge of gazillions of them, barely scratching the surface at present!), here is a photograph taken on my travels in Vienna, Austria, 1982 with my Canon FT and 50mm f1.8 lens. Shot on Kodachrome, it hadn’t suffered fading or colour shift. The only issue was of my own making, it was a bit underexposed, so I had to rescue it on digital import.

Here it is, one of my very earliest street shots:

Karntnerstrasse, Vienna, Austria

Karntnerstrasse, Vienna, Austria

I had thought this was lost, so very relieved it turned up during the sorting process….



  1. Very nicely composed Sue. The lady in black makes the shot!

  2. Engaging capture, where I’m drawn to the symmetry of street life and its ever-present angles, colors, shapes, and tones.

  3. Lovely photo … it makes me feel at home … way back when 😉

  4. Grenadier and almost marching lady in black…a really interesting combination!

  5. That’s great Sue – it looks much older than ’82 – something to do with the main figure’s suit and hairstyle.

  6. I feel the action on the street. A great capture and lovely composition.

  7. Oh, how wonderful this photo is. What luck that you rediscovered it. Love the clothing and the hairstyle and that you caught the woman mid-stride! Amazing to think this is from over 30 years ago 🙂

  8. I like your composition, especially with the lady walking away in front, shows intent and action. 🙂

  9. Such an elegant lady, sets the tone 🙂

  10. Oh lovely! 😀 I definitely recognize this street! Will you upload more such photos?

    • Thanks, Alex! I didn’t actively take ‘street photographs’ in those days, but I may have one more from Vienna, and the next one I am posting later today is from Florence (Firenze). Then I will most likely be posting my more recent images. Stay tuned!

  11. I envy you still having your old shots. My slides from my first trip to Europe are pretty much gone.

    • I am a bit of a hoarder for certain things! I cut them down early on, but have kept he better ones all these years. But anything could happen to possessions, so I reckon I’ve been lucky.

  12. Wonderful shot, Sue, and such stunning architecture. Lucky you still have the photo. Have you been back there since? 🙂
