Abroad: A Room with a View

I took two medium format cameras with me to Europe: The Evil Cube, and Supper Club Shorty - supported by my Bogen/Manfrotto 76B.

I only took them out with me on three occasions, but I used them for photographs of or out the windows of most of the places we stayed.

In Prague, we booked an AirBnB that had been the studio of prominent Czech painter and sculptor Zdenek Sputa, dominated by this great northern skylight.

It was full of artist tools.  He was very multimedia. These scissors were hanging from nails in the window sill.

More art paraphenalia: a few chunks of architectural stone and a frame leaned against the desk.

Sarah channeling the creative vibe.

Another AirBnB in Vienna, right across the street from the Ministry of National Defence and Sport, and again on the top floor of the building.

Looking directly across the street in the late afternoon.

Looking northeast later that evening.

Looking northwest the next morning in the rain.

We had a lovely view in Munich, but I only made one exposure and didn't pull the shutter all the way out and blocked three-quarters of the frame.  Sigh.

In Strasbourg, there was a bakery just across the street and just before sunrise, their workroom above the store, with several busy chefs, was the only light on.

A narrower view to the right a few minutes later that morning.

In Paris we had a great location, but the view out the window was of the interior courtyard, which did look nice from the breakfast room.

The Evil Cube was loaded with Portra 400.  Supper Club Shorty with Ektar 100.  I'll leave it to you to work out which was which.
