April 2016 Member Spotlight: Heinz Müller

A round of applause for the winner of VPW’s Vienna DC Donau City Photo Walk, Heinz Müller!

Our congratulations go out to Heinz Müller, who is not only VPW’s only repeat-winner (he won the VPW October 2015 Burggarten Photo Competition), but succeeded in winning both first and second place at this month’s photo walk in the Donau City! You can take a look at both of his winning shots here.

Heinz is, in many ways, the heart and soul of our group – he never misses a single walk, takes part in all the monthly photo challenges, is always helpful and cheerful, and is a true VPW veteran: he has been with us since the first coordinator founded this fine group back in 2013!

As with most things, the definition of “street photography” isn’t set in stone so, in an attempt to explain it for this month’s challenge topic, I came across a blog post by photographer Eric Kim. Kim gives lots of examples, throws around many ideas and, effectively, comes up with the following list (added to and re-phrased a little bit by yours truly):
