Some snapshots from a weekend in Vienna. I orginally wanted to go to the Central Cemetery in Vienna but couldn’t make it. Instead I randomly walked around the city, just taking snapshots.
It’s only the beginning of March and I’m already lagging behind my 12 months 12 cameras project. I’ll try to catch up with scanning the films from February when I shot the Nikon L35AF in San Francisco and California. But first things first, here are the shots from January.
Buying stuff at flea markets and from thrift shops runs in the family. For some years now I find myself visiting shops and markets more and more often. Sometimes I think I should open a vintage shop and fully indulge into my passion for old stuff. While I try to be more minimalistic when it comes to stuff in general, I can’t resist (older) cameras. I’m writing this as I look at a Polaroid Image System camera I just purchased two days ago. Here’s what I learned on my hunts after vintage cameras:
With the beginning of a new year I usually don’t make resolutions for the next 365 days. To me that doesn’t make sense. But there is one thing I always do and that’s making plans and thinking about projects and new ideas. A few things crossed my mind but finally I sorted out which project I want to realize in 2017.
Music is a very important part of my life and not a day goes by that I don’t listen to a whole album, several albums or at least some songs: In the office, on my way to work, at home, while cooking – there’s even music when I take a nap. And of course – you guessed it – I always pick some tunes when I’m developing films, scanning negatives or working on a photography project indoor. Here’s my choice of music for winter – most of this stuff is on heavy rotation for weeks now.
Autumn is finally gone and days are getting shorter and darker. Everything slows down – including me, who seems to be the only person who enjoys dark days and the crisp air on a foggy morning. I even walk to work and back home more often than I do when days are warm and sunny. There are a few things I always do when winter arrives, using my Holga camera is one of them. This winter I decided to slow down in my kitchen lab as well: Hej stand development!
In the first week of October we finally made it to Barcelona. I took my Nikon F80 and several rolls of film with me. It was my first time using Ilford FP4 – thanks for motivating me #FP4Party!
