Week 23 & 24: Holiday in Greece

During week #23 and #24 we visited my in-laws in Athens, Greece for the christening of my nephew. I went all out and shot three rolls of 35mm in two weeks. At least for me that’s quite a lot. 😉 I also tried to get used to the 35mm focal length. As it turned out…

Week 21 & 22: Holiday in Austria

In week 21 & 22 we went on a holiday in Austria. It was my uncle’s 70th birthday, the yearly family reunion and both daycares were closed. We went to a tiny vineyard close to Graz, Austria and we had the most relaxing holiday. Minolta Dynax 9xi, 50mm f/1.7, Agfa Vista 400, developed and scanned…

Week 18: Leicester Riverside Festival…and the EU

Well, this morning I opened my eyes in an unfamiliar bed and gradually remembered that I should really check my phone, for something momentous had been happening overnight and the results were due.

EMULSIVE 52 Rolls - Week 08 - Kodak Tri-X 400 (35mm) - EI1600

EMULSIVE – Week 06-09 2016 update

The over/under exposure and push/pull/XPRO theme covered in my first update of 2016 continues unabated and I must say, it’s been quite refreshing. I’ve found myself experimenting more than I usually do, and with the recent…

TK Roll 2015-43: For Deep-Seated Reasons (Minolta X-700, 45/f2 and 28/f2.8, Agfa Precisa 100)

Thomas Mann’s sad but evocative early novella, “Death in Venice” contains these haunting words: He loved the sea for deep-seated reasons: because of the hard-working artist’s yearning for repose, his desire to take shelter in the bosom of undifferentiated immensity from the demanding complexity of the world’s phenomena; because of his own proclivity – forbidden, directly…
