Historical site and recreation area at the western border of Vienna - An absolute Vienna favorite.
Take the bus “48A → Baumgartner Höhe”, get off at the station “Otto Wagner Spital” and enter the hospital premises with their numerous art nouveau pavilions. At the beginning of the 20th century the so-called “white city” was built according to the plans of the famous architect Otto Wagner to accommodate the most state-of the-art psychiatric hospital of that time. Some of the pavilion still serve this purpose, so you will occasionally meet some colorful characters wandering around.
In the heart of the hospital grounds you will find a theater and a memorial site to remember the victims of medical experiments in the Nazi era. “Am Spiegelgrund” (how the area was once called) became almost synonymous with the unspeakable crimes that where committed in this very place.
A staircase leads to the highest point where Otto Wagner’s beautiful “Kirche am Steinhof” aka “Church of St. Leopold” is located. Because of it’s widely visible gigantic golden dome the place got the nickname “Lemoniberg” (lemon hill). Back in the days the Art Nouveau style seemed very daring and the church was disapproved by the Viennese public. Today it is deemed to be one of the most significant religious buildings of the Art Nouveau style.
Behind the church lies the huge natural recreation area „Steinhofgründe“ with grassy hills, small woods and hiking trails where joggers, strollers, kite fliers, families with their kids and picnickers alike enjoy themselves.
Virginia City is a state-maintained historic site in the western part of the United States. In the 1860s, mining drew in investors and businessmen to the area. They built saloons, inns and a variety of stores in Gothic and Greek Revival styles. Many of these buildings have been preserved in vivid detail. Western fonts welcome tourists, and some modern-day merchants even operate within these photogenic, pilaster-lined shops.
This article is a tribute to an important street photographer, Edouard Boubat. His pictures are characterized by great poetic touch, strong social sensitivity, and utmost respect for people and places. Inspired by a book which contains Boubat's photos taken in the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, I pay homage by showcasing some of my photos taken within the same geographic area.
Traveling in Burkina Faso is quite an adventure and a fantastic photographic experience. I went to this fascinating African country at the Sahel border twice and used many different ways of transportation.
It is the marvel of Java, the cultural center of Indonesia: Yogyakarta, or, as we assimilated locals call it, Jogja! Jogja is full of historic sites and exudes a very adventurous yet welcoming spirit. It is a true multireligious melting pot that has seen kings and sultans come and go, and religions introduced and either went or stayed. Time has been gentle on Jogja. It's one of my most favorite cities in Asia.
My family and I were in Udaipur (India) for a wedding ceremony and decided to travel around the area. We went to Jaisalmer, one of the most gorgeous cities I have ever seen (located on the border with Pakistan) and decided to stop by the remote Thar Desert, which is where these pictures were taken.
