Autumn shoots with the Yashica (Part 2)

The second half of the Fuji Superia 400 in the Yashica had been shot during a wonderful family trip at the south of Austria. We have picked an easy trail close to Arnfels this time but one packed with nice scenery and experiences. We have…

Grüner See

What would a photographer do if he  would suddenly need to carry an ever moving child on his back to every location he would take photos? Of course he would use the new situation in order to justify a new purchase of a lens for the sake…

John Gunn Camera Shop

As you may have noticed I have never written a post about any camera shops or labs I visited. There are many reasons behind this starting from the fact that most of them are quite uninteresting and ending with my intention to not make advertisements…

Being a tourist

It is not easy to be a tourist. Visiting popular places has the obvious disadvantage  that they are already photographed from every possible angles at every possible time of the year. So what can a photographer do who is short on time and cannot afford…

Jakominiplatz

The Jakominiplatz is one of the most important public transport centers of Graz. Tram lines meet here as well as it is the starting point of many local and medium distance bus lines. It is indeed a very busy, sometimes seemingly chaotic, ever changing colorful…

Livin’ Streets on Ektachrome

Walls are usually not the most exciting subjects to photograph. To use medium format slide film to do that is even more strange and could be considered as some sort of crime by some. After all we live in a time when both film and labs which are able…

The Kodak Ektar adventure

Finally, I have convinced myself to try out the famous Kodak Ektar film, so I loaded a roll into my beloved Olympus OM 4 Ti. Unfortunately the camera had other plans and the electronic circuits gave up at the middle of the roll. At the…

Welcome the Sun

Finally, the Sun has returned to us and days are once again long enough for me to have a chance to enjoy the light even after working hours. To celebrate this blessing I have finished shooting the roll of Velvia which I have started last…

Last roll from 2013

Yet another quick post with little written content but with a bunch of random snapshot images. This is what I end up with, when I carry the same roll of film over weeks and only occasionally have a chance to shoot.  I am basically on…
