Otherworldly Aegna June 14, 2021

In 2018 I was visiting Tallinn with one of my partners and we took a daytrip to the island of Aegna. I found the landscape there quite otherworldly and think that the seascapes really worked well with the super expired Agfa film that I used.

Summerdays on Rügen April 19, 2021

Last year I managed to get away from our ongoing pandemic situation a bit and spend some relaxing days on the island of Rügen. I had my Hasselblad with me and shot took some photos there. (Film roll number 600, according to my numbering scheme!) It was all very much the cliché German Baltic Sea beaches, but I do love that landscape a lot.

snowfall-in-friedrichshain March 10, 2021

In January and February 2021 Berlin had some unusually cold weather that brought us a lot of lovely snow which also stuck around because of the low temperatures. One evening in late February in particularly I noticed a snow storm outside and ventured into the night to take some photos. It turned out to be quite a magical change of scenery during the lengthy lockdown that Berlin was (and still is) under.

Lancaster January 15, 2021

With the ongoing pandemic I find myself less out and about shooting pictures and more inside sorting through them. With that in mind I’ve decided to put a bit more backlog work up on my blog, and this post is the first pice of that.

During late 2019 and early 2020 (what I would now call ‘right before the pandemic hit’) I spent some very nice days in Lancaster. On both occasions I brought my Hasselblad and shot mostly slide film including the new(ish) Kodak E100. The slides all have a bit of a color cast but I think it fits the subject matter quite nicely. (As a fan of the old E100G I quite like the color balance of the new material!)

Snowfall in Schönberg January 11, 2021

While spending the holidays in Salzburg I lucked out a bit and got to see some snow falling in December (usually that occurs more in November or January). While taking up the opprotunity to shoot some landscapes in an area with a curious collection of lakes I spotted the tall trees behinde the house in the photo in this post. I considered not having the house in the frame to make for a cleaner landscape shot. However I came down on keeping it in the photo for a sense of scale and to stay true to the area having a lot of hosues dotting the natural landscape.

Two Pidgins December 31, 2020

Back in November I was in Salzburg and on a foggy fall morning I encountered these two pidgins hanging out on a telephone pole.

My last time leaving from Tegel December 14, 2020

In early September (when we had a bit of a breather from the ongoing pandemic) I flew from the now closed Berlin Tegel airport for the last time. It was an odd experience with all the social distancing measures and way less people around than I was used to seeing at the old airport that ran way over capacity for decades. I took a few photos while waiting and thought they where worth sharing. There are two noteworthy details in the last picture: The first one is the gap between the airplane and the gangway: Usually this would have been closed to shield people from the elements while boarding. But as we are in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic airports seem to leave a bit of a gap to improve ventilation in the gangways. The second one at the long history of the infrastructure at the airport: The stop marking next to the front wheel of the plane still denote the stop points for passenger planes that have long been out of widespread use such as the Tupolev Tu-154 and the Boing 707. Another gate still had the marking for Concorde!

Karl-Marx-Allee June 9, 2020

I went for a small walk today to clear my mind and practicly stumbled across this beautiful light on Karl-Marx-Allee. I (hopefully) managed to catch some of it the photo I took.

Santosa from Above May 28, 2020

Two pictures of the island beach in Santosa, Singapore. I took these in January 2020 from the cabel car. The first one is in normal color and the second one is the usual brand of infrared I’ve been posting over the last months.

Rooftop Gardeners January 26, 2020

Asia Square in Singapore has a very well tended garden on it’s roof. After being in an office in Tower two (overlooking the garden) for a few weeks and rarely seing anyone there, a three gardeners showed up and neatly cut all of the foilage up there.
