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.
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!
Time passed quickly the last few weeks and I just realized that the best part of autumn is almost over. With fall as the most stressful time of the year I hardly ever carry out my projects and plans for this season. Every year, when September approaches, I make plans and a photography bucket list: a weekend in Prague, a getaway to the countryside, more hiking, more walking. A lot of events and a lingering cold did the rest – here I am, at the end of October, with my bucket list still filled. At least I made it to Barcelona!
Hello fall! Leaves have not changed their color yet but in the morning, the air is already crisp and on weekends I find myself baking apple pie. A sure sign that fall will be in full swing soon. In a few weeks I’ll be out in the woods again, packed with cameras and film. Until it’s time for that, I digged into my archive and found some photos from the last two years.
Santa Claus is coming to town – and he brings film, maybe even a camera! IF you take part at this years EMULSIVE Secret Santa. What it is? It’s all about presenting other fellow film photographers with nice stuff and of course, getting something in return.
