Back in April I spent a weekend in Vienna, visiting concerts and ticking off a thing that was on my bucket list for a very long time: roaming the Vienna Central Cemetery. Despite the fact that I lived in Vienna for 8 years, I never made it to this graveyard. Two things I learned during this stay in Vienna: Going to a festival all by myself is weird at the beginning but totally okay, and the second thing: Not visiting this cemetery while I had the chance for 8 f*cking years was a big mistake. But since I don’t dwell on the past, I’m looking forward to more visits in the future.
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.
