Why a disposable camera you might ask. I own a very well working system camera and an iPhone but just before Lotte and I left for Vienna, Austria, I got the idea to also bring a disposable camera. I still remember loving having a disposable camera when I was little. This was my camera and I was aloud to capture anything I liked. When we got home, we had to wait for the photos to be developed and then a couple of weeks later, I was able to enjoy the holiday again through these photos. That’s what I also wanted to with this trip to Vienna! So, guess what you’ll see in this blog post? The photos I got developed from my disposable camera. Surprise!
I just wanted to add a little note: I didn’t edit these photos at all. Yes, I know. I love editing photos but I wanted to try something new and I actually love how vintage these disposable photos look. What they look like in this blog post is what they look like on print.
ː City Centre ː
In general Vienna is such a photogenic city. While walking through this city, you’ll be amazed at the beauty of the buildings and its architecture. Like I explained in my travel diary, Vienna reminds me a bit of Paris. In this city centre you’ll find tons of sights that will catch your eye and are worth taking a photo of.
ː Stephansdom ː
A big cathedral, just in the middle of a shopping street. That’s Stephansdom. In the photo above you can see I tried to capture mostly the top of the cathedral, but it’s a little bit too much of ‘just the top’… oh well.
ː Hofburg ː
Probably one of the most captured spots in Vienna is Hofburg. Hofburg is a palace and in front of it people can get a ride with a horse and carriage. Since there are so many horses and carriages in front of Hofburg, it’s very photograph friendly. I waited long enough for there to be carriages just in front of Hofburg so I could capture both!
ː Kunsthistorisches & Naturhistorisches Museum ː
One of my fave places to walk through was definitely the part in between the Kunsthistorisches and Naturhistorisches Museum. In the middle they had displayed so many different flowers and there were so many butterflies! Next time I also want to go inside both museums because I’ve seen photos and it looks very interesting.
ː Palmenhaus ː
How could I not include the Palmenhaus? The cafe is a dream. It’s inside a glasshouse. Even though we sat outside (since it was so warm), I did peek inside and loved it! So many plants and it looks insane with the bar in the middle. Besides, you can eat some very tasty Apfelstrüdel here…
ː Karlskirche ː
Stephansdom isn’t the only cathedral/church in Vienna. There are many more to find. For example, Karlskirche. This church isn’t really in the centre but really worth visiting because of it appearance. It’s huge and it reminds me for a building straight out of a movie. We didn’t go inside, but if the inside is as good as the outside… I wouldn’t taken a ton more photos with my disposable camera.
ː Hundertwasserhaus ː
A colorful and unique sight in Vienna is the Hundertwasserhaus. It’s a little village in the middle of a ‘normal’ area. The colors don’t show up as bright as they were in real life, but I loved this! You never really see something like this anywhere.
ː Schloß Schönbrunn ː
Want to feel like royal for the day? Visit Schloß Schönbrunn! This palace is insanely big and has tons of gardens and even a zoo around it. You will walk from garden to garden and all of them are diffrent. My favorite was the one near the Palmenhaus because you could capture the beautiful gardens and the glasshouse in the background as well. Also, when standing at the back of Schloß Schönbrunn, you can spot Gloriette. This is definitely worth hiking to because you get the most beautiful panoramic view of the city from there. Who doesn’t love a good panoramic view?
And those were all the photos I took with my disposable camera! Well, not all of them because two or three were too dark unfortunately… So, not all of them turned out the way I wanted too. But it was so much fun playing around with a disposable camera and only knowing how the photos would look once I would get them developed. Honestly, I did forget to bring this camera a lot of the time because I am used to taking photos with my iPhone and normal camera. So bringing an extra camera is maybe a bit of a hassle, but on my next trip, I think I will bring another disposable camera! Have you ever used a disposable camera? What do you think of my photos?
