Otto Wagner - Viennese Architect (#1) by

FEATURED IN No B/W or Sepia Monochrome – on July 5, 2014

Taken in Vienna, Austria in the Post Office Savings Bank designed by Otto Wagner and built in 1906. Photo taken on September 5, 2012 with a Sony Cybershot (W650) camera..

Otto Wagner is considered to be an influence on modern architecture. Personally, I find his ideas fascinating. This cold seeming structure in mid-room , studded with apparent rivets (for appearances only), was designed for the light fixtures you can see around the bottom of the spire. It does not look old to me – rather I find it still looks futuristic – for a future I am not sure I want to see. More information can be found on the internet.

Love my camera and am working to improve. My photos are generally taken with a Nikon D3000 with either an AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm lens or a 55-300 mm lens. European shots and a number of more recent ones were taken with a Sony Cybershot camera. I have a new IMAC and play with the iPhoto program. I also crop judiciously. Constructive criticism is welcome.

    Haha! This guy is interesting. Reminds me of some of those old sci-fi movies! Never had heard of him before, but it does create an atmosphere. Kind of heavy on the metal! Great captures, Beth! I love them.

  • Lots about him on the internet too. He is a true character of different tastes and different styles. Glad you like these pictures.

    Industrial art at its best. I do love industrial art. It shows that even in function and design can be found a beauty that pleases the eye, if it does this then we are allowing that design into our urban jungle as much as a tree decorates a forest. You have many beautiful man made design creations in your work..Fab !!!

  • This is, as I mentioned above, one of the most looked-at images I have. I think I fell in love with the idea of someone who could imagine these things and the MAKE them. A little old perhaps. Thank-you for your review – I appreciate it!!
