Motivated by Jim Grey from Down the Road who made several wonderful posts about his journey in 2016, I tried to get hands on an old analog Nikon F-301 camera with a 35mm lens attached. I packed five rolls of Agfa Vista 400 to…… Continue reading A Nikon F-301 travelling Ireland

Hiking the Haselstein and the Center of Central Europe

Inspiration is the motor for improvement

Did I ever tell the story, … why I love a special kind of city skyline images? It was some time ago, when I was looking for something wide, something quite wide, something quite large and something … quite old.
