03/2013: mixed stuff, lots of equip and finally some sun!
April showers bring May flowers! Well, kind of. Indeed, a couple of things are changing currently. New perspectives, totally different job prospects and ideas are popping up in my mind and getting more and more serious. In fact the period from having this crazy yet inciting idea to an actual solid plan was about 2 months. And yep, that’s all i can tell you by now. Things have to be decided and stuff has to be done before i can tell you the whole story behind this.
However, the one thing that is definitely not changing is me taking pictures. Heres a new collection, enjoy!
at some flea market.
sunlight was rare these days,
, which seemed to affect some peoples mood.
oh, these frames here are shot on trix btw.
and again. some jerks keep rioting at the local store every 5 months or so. guess thats why they removed all _really_ nice stuff from display.
Not much going on.
Having some tea at the station.
still in the book.
future ping-pong champion?
weird snow at night. 1/2s.
messed up bikes.
yep, thats a typical friday afternoon.
we all need our personal space.
Nice headphones i thought.
he asked for a shot.
well he didnt and was actually kind of annoyed. what a shame, that frame i like very much, light-wise.
sneaky peaky through some hotels window.
at the helmut jahn exhibition. huge huge images, impressive. some very nice sketches and drafts too.
having some more coffee. and tea. actually its only tea for me.
more weird train station stuff.
attentive dog and curious boy.
countryside walk, somethings weird…
having selfmade spaghetti at tanjas & eugens place. didnt think thatd make such a nice toned frame.
shot a roll with the rolleiflex but couldnt find any inspiring scenes. this was the only frame that turned out ok. in the middle of nowhere.
loaded the leica with some pro 400h.
late afternoon sunrays make us happy!
that wouldnt have worked in b/w i guess.
two frames with the hasselblad.
just to remind myself: this was actually march.
ok this is it: to be more flexible with b/w and color i came up with the idea of getting a new camera, but maybe a bit cheaper then a M. my plan was to go for a nice ricoh or contax p&s but after some weeks looking on ebay and classifieds i happened to make a ridiciously good deal on a like-new hexar af. this is the first test roll of trix.
That didnt look right.
focus seems spot on.
and man it is one sharp 35mm lens, despite the crappy 9000f flatbed.
however, sometimes i miss a good old focus tab.
some jam that looks quite nice in b/w.
at a demonstration.
dogs have the easier life.
nice dude with his friend.
yep, train station again. deal with it.
something going on?
one random still frame from a walk with the flex.
and two frames from a recent project about which i will talk in detail in one of the upcoming entries. pan f plus here.
back to hexar and trix.
olga doing some research for an art history project.
fabians place, he and christina showed some pics from their trip to india. please enjoy my af skills.
nice little store.
guy testing a tele lens.
some more spring fair shots. the weather was pretty nice for a few days, so this is actually the first roll of acros this year (that was around march/april).
remember, back when we were still cool?
opposites attract i guess…
two scans from polaroids shot with the hasselblad + pola back on fuji fp 100
alumnium and sheet metal scrap. makes a weird still on pan f plus.
at the faber-castell academy.
that strangly reminds me of some engineering courses.
