A view of my Swedish grandmother’s house from my last visit in October/November 2013 – even though it was cold there was no snow during the visit. Taken with my D700 and 85mm 1.4.

Evy in the playground

Evelyn likes the rocking animals at the Strandbad playground. Taken with my Nikon FE and Nikkor 28mm 2.8 AI on Kodak TriX.


Back from Copenhagen I was inspired by Agathe to make Rabarberhorn – while rhubarb still was available. Was very yummy! 😉 Taken with my D700 and Tamron 90mm 2.8. Here are some more pictures from the baking process:

За родину

While in Berlin we (finally) visited the capitulation museum in Karlshorst. The garden surrounding the house features some Soviet tanks and other army vehicles. This tank has “Za Rodinu” written on it. Taken with my Nikon FE and 50mm 1.8 Series E lens on Ilford HP5.

Flooding in Ilvesheim

Germany was struck by some heavy rain two weeks ago. While biking to Ilvesheim after the torrents we had to cross the Neckar which decided it was going to flood the banks. Taken with my Canon S95.


While going through my negatives I found this portrait of my mother taken in 2007 with my Rolleiflex 2.8 F on Ilford FP4. The tonality of 6×6 film is different than both 35mm film and digital…

David on a bench

David and his family came to visit last week. We spent a day in Luisenpark where he took a rest on a bench. Taken with my Contax T and Ilford Delta 400 (home-developed).

Model pig

Ella made a small model pig which has been adorning my desk for a while. Yesterday it ask to have its picture taken. 😉 Taken with my D700, Tamron 90mm 2.8 lens, SB-900 and my light tent.

Evy looking up

Our kitchen window faces north and gives a nice soft light for portraits – as with this one of Evy taken with my D700 and 85mm 1.4.

Bodi visiting

My Austrian classmate (and aspiring artist) Bodi (actually Matthias Bodenstein) finally came for a nice visit last week. Taken with my D700 and Nikon 85mm 1.4 lens.

Ella & Vova

During the trip to FRA Ella & Vova decided to play public service announcement. Both the picture above and the video below taken with my Canon S95.


During the last couple of days I have been enjoying my Nikon 50mm 1.8 lens with my D700 – like in this picture with Evelyn.
