DC Tower in Vienna

May 3, 2019

Capturing this architectural peculiarity on a cold evening in Vienna is a tricky thing. I wanted to show the city traffic with all the lights, but also showing the hole building - so I followed the street and set up my tripod in the middle of the bridge. In between the barrier of the two traffic directions - so I was fine, I thought. Taking the first couple test shots a police car passed by, and I saw their faces looking at me like I was crazy. Just one minute later they came back with blue lights and so on. "What are you doing here?! You have to be there where you are allowed to be!" the police officer said. All I answered was, that it looks much better from here. He agreed but still kicked me of the bridge.
So all I learnt - go there where you are not supposed to be, there are the cool places.
Still happy to got this photo out of it - even I just had like 5 minutes to shoot!
