D.I.Y. Fisheye Lens
Since I bought my E-500, I had been dreaming of a fisheye lens. But until now, I still cannot afford one. What I like about the fisheye lens are the effect of the round distortion and it can cover super ultra wide angle of sight... Read More...

Vienna, Austria

Hello all readers (if I had any), I am back again. Again, I would like to apologize for abandoning this blog once again. Many things happened within these few months make me don't have time to do photo editing n blog posting. And now I'm in Vienna, Austria for my 3 months research attachment since early November 2009 (till end of January 2010). From the beginning of my stay here until now, I had taken many photos of this beautiful and wonderful city. Every weekend, I will take some time off from my hectic research schedule and explore around this super huge city. Following are some information of Vienna and also some photos of beautiful Vienna...

Vienna is the capital of the Republic of Austria and also one of the nine states of Austria. Vienna is Austria's primary city, with a population of about 1.7 million (2.3 million within the metropolitan area, which means more than 25% of Austria's population), and is by far the largest city in Austria, as well as its cultural, economic, and political centre. It is the 10th largest city by population in the European Union. Vienna is host to many major international organizations such as the United Nations and OPEC. Vienna lies in the east of Austria and is close to the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. In 2001, the city centre was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and in 2005 an Economist Intelligence Unit study of 127 world cities ranked it first equal with Vancouver for the quality of life.

There are more photos but I will post them in future according to the places I visited. Stay tuned... :D

So what do I think about Vienna? Well, Vienna is a great place for vacation. You can easily and fully spend 2-3 days here with lots of place yet to be visited. Vienna is also a must visit city if you are travelling around Europe. As for living, Vienna is not so suitable for a person who came from a developing country, like me. Because you need to spend Euro in Vienna (Austria). Vienna is an expensive city... :D

One of the things I like about the < Vienna Online site is that they have a page of walking tours of Vienna so you can sight see for little or nothing. You're right, Vienna is expensive.
