abendliche abenteuer

September 9, 2007

so first of all thanks everyone for watching and commenting. i deactivated that annoying snap preview thing (:

ok so in finally finished that roll of trix+2 i started like 2 months ago in bregenz

dunno whats up with me and my handling/storage of half finished kodak films. guess the container got a little fucked up and so the light leaked; but only onto the first few frames. dont have this with agfa films… weird

“HA, you dont know kung fu”

Did i mention that this is gonna be a hiking/landscape – heavy entry? no, k u can skip the next part if ur all about public transportation shots and go right to the trix+2 drinking shots section (;

2 weeks ago two friends and i decided two climb mount Traunstein.

the first hour we did pretty well and the 3 of us tried to hold the same tempo.

after same time rupert (picture) continuously fell back and we had to wait every other corner.

looking up the mountain (:

last brake before we split up and agreed to meet at the top

antonia and i found a good hiking rhythm

the scenery there looking straight down onto lake traunsee and the alps is just stunning

this is about half way up the mountain

kinda scary two pass all these crosses of people who lost theirs lives on this mountain


quite heavy antonia wise , aye? didnt pass a lot of other hikers

told you so

huh, theres one. even with helmet

self portrait

so after about 3,5 hours we reached the first of two mountain lodges where we agreed to wait for rupert.

so we chilled

and talked to the original WURZELSEPP Senior (note his shirt)

thats probably the most amazing toilet i have seen my entire life. its built right on the cliff

we waited for like an hour or so when we called him on his cell. obviously exhausted he told us that hes still on the way up and needs a little more time… we could make a runf for the top without him.

so we did and passed the second lodge that is about to get rebuilt

at the top

on the way back to the first lodge we couldnt reach rupert on his cell and were very worried; luckily we found him waiting there for us, totally worn out. the worst news were that his hiking shoes thought it would be nice to just dissolve!


to be honest, i was very scared, first of all rupert not seeming to be able to get down on his own and second his shoes absolutely fucked up.

thought it would be hard enough to manage to get us down in time anyway so i gave rupert my hiking boots and took on the burden of going down barefoot. yes, its like 1300m difference in altitude <3

sorry guys, dont have any other pictures of the way down. guess i didnt have time for taking pictures, was busy with more important life activities. (:

it took us 3 hours to get to a rural road in the backcountry. luckily we met a forest ranger that let us hitch hike back to our car. (would have taken us another hour to go there)

really nice of him. haha thank god

back to the car on his pick up ;)

somuch to an abendliche adventure

back in vienna i met up with friends to talk about going to Alt Aussee for Kirtag, kinda of state fair but only in a little rural village. looks a lot like october fest

puss in boots <3

more coffee

the following two shots are the only pictures i took at the fair. due to heavy drinking and an enormous hate of Aussee’s townfolks for viennese i was scared for my leicas safety and left it in my room.

good capture. eyes closed, eating, toilet <3

oh talking about those mountain inbreds of Alt Aussee fuckfaces. dunno know why they dont like viennese but thats what they did to a friend of mine. 6on1 action – how manly

took this one with a friends point n shoot cam (date is incorrect)


before going out:

du hast die haare schön… <3

1. u lost, sucker, take two!

2 .there u go

3. awww yummy.

haha i love this shot. dont know who or why someone drew on the bottle but it just adds so much! :D

on the way back to vienna; been a fun weekend.

thats it for now. thanks again for watching and commenting.

dont hesitate to leave a comment with your blog adress, im happy to add blogs to my rss feed. great feature :)

    You are crazy for climbing that mountain! And even crazier for giving your shoes away. Sympathetic too, yes :aww:
    But it was nice to see your adventure documentated!
    To be honest I like the getting drunk shots more though… Great range of expressions and poses and compositions. And they just have a nice relaxed feel to ’em.
