When I went to Vienna, the thing I found most stunning is how often old, classical architecture was mixed with newer, Soviet-built structures. A lot of the alleyways and smaller streets were mostly older buildings that were densely packed, leading to a lot of different textures. On this street, I was struck by how the ‘end’ of the street was just more buildings, lending a very claustrophobic (but nice!) feel. It had just rained and I liked how the shadows of the three men in front of me cast slight reflections on the stones, so I pulled out my Nikon D200 and started snapping. I slightly underexposed so I could get the moody sky, and in Photoshop boosted the edges so the texture would stand out, and I also added a slight Lens Blur vignette to augment the tunnel-vision feeling.
It was a great week here at Frogman’s Light School…here are some of the most popular posts of the week:

There is a magical lake in the Rock Islands of Palau where you can swim with the jellyfish worry-free.
The lake became a tourist attraction and people can go swimming and snorkeling with them.
The jellyfish lost their stingers over the years because they don’t need them to fight off predators.
