Where Do The Children Play?

1st photo: Abandoned engine shed south of Hamburg.
2nd photo: Abandoned machinery somewhere on the way from Frankfurt to Hamburg.
Both pictures: 35mm film; taken in Germany in January 2009 and December 2008, respectively.

I bought a Nikon Nikonos IV-A underwater camera on Ebay earlier this evening. I had a bit of a Homer-Simpson-moment... couldn't decide whether or not to buy it, but eventually I did. It's not the legendary Calypso used by Jacques-Yves Cousteau, but still, it's a pretty cool thing. I can't wait until I'll be able to shoot the first roll of 35mm film with that camera next year.

Speaking of 35mm film, check out this fantastic collection of black&white photographs taken in Russia. My favourite is the photo of the man and the geese. 

Red house. Germany. December 2008.
I used 35mm Fujifilm for all three shots.

Tomorrow after university, I'm going indoor snowboarding with some of my friends... looking forward to that.

Have a great week!

Haha, well that too.
I like tea too. But at night. Or when it's rainy and you're just lying around. and coffee in the morning.

Oh yeah, I love drinking tea when it's rainy and I'm watching movies or reading a book. But I love my tea at all other times too :-)

Vielleicht verbringe ich an einigen Tagen auch einfach nur zu viel Zeit im Internet! :-)
