Wedding Photos // Mannheimer Hochzeit

Last Saturday I was booked for a beautiful wedding. The weather was covering everything from sunshine to a downpour to wind to clouds. But we battled it and it was wonderful.

Letzten Samstag war ich für eine Hochzeit gebucht. Sie fand im Maritim in Mannheim stand, mit anschließender Fotosession am Wassertum und Feier hinter Weinheim. Das Wetter war mehr als nur wechselhaft, aber wir haben den Elementen getrotzt und hatten eine tolle Zeit.

"Die Bilder sind ja wahnsinnig schön, vor allem das schwarz-weiss Foto!!
Wir sind begeistert!!!" -Sabrina
Vielen Dank und alles Gute für eure Zukunft.

Lubitel 2

I won my Lubitel 2 in an ebay auction for 15 euro or something like that. I haven't done anything with her in 2 years. But I think I have to do that again, because I love the pics.

Meine Lubitel 2 hab ich bei ebay für ca 15 euro ergattert. ich hab vor 2 Jahren das letzte Mal Fotos mit ihr gemacht, wenn ich mir die Resultate aber mal genau anschau,  muss ich mich mal wieder mit ihr beschäftigen.

Diana Mini Film no 2 (part 3)

Topic today: Shopping.

Yes I know, blurry as hell but I like it.

Tolkien: The Silmarillion

The SilmarillionThe Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is hard to rate because

- it took me three attempts and extreme power of will to finish it. I was so confused with the names and the immensity and the mythology I just went wtf most of the time.

- but, it is a masterpiece because to think of such a world, to know it to develop it to such an extent is just worth one hundred stars.

So I am torn between the two opposites. But I love LOTR and The Hobbit too much no not like this one, although I probably won't pick it up again, whereas the other two I already have and will pick up more than once in the future.

Diana Mini Film no 2

I found this old film. I have no idea how old it was but from looking at the results I'd say damn old. Nevertheless I inserted it into the Diana Mini and shot slides.

Vor ein paar Tagen hab ich einen alten Diafilm gefunden. Ohne Plan wie alt er ist, hab ich ihn in die Diana Mini eingelegt und Fotos gemacht. 

On the last photo I desperately tried to capture a dragon fly. Can you spot it too?

Auf dem letzten Foto versteckt sich eine Libelle. Suchbild.

"A million little pieces" by James Frey

A Million Little PiecesA Million Little Pieces by James Frey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am and never have been addicted to anything. But I have been to a clinic myself and even though our life stories couldn't be any more different, I saw some my experiences in that book. I relived the fear and anxiety the struggle the hope the shame the decision you have to make yourself because nobody can do it for you. I totally get the author's view on how to handle and reclaim his life. I admire his strength of will. I was touched and more than once teary eyed. I was abhorred and I was smitten.

I love the voice of it. The matter of fact, honest and completely in your face voice. No apologies for how he felt, or anything. It just is. It is remarkable and cruel and captivating and compelling.

And I am deeply grateful that I could read it.

Good Morning.

This is a good morning. About 45 minutes ago I went and took a walk in the forest. Even the animals were still asleep (except for that one squirrel who was fast as hell and which did not want to be photographed with a mouth full of leaves).

Heute morgen war ich im Wald spazieren, ganz alleine und sogar die Tiere haben noch geschlafen (mit Ausnahme des doch recht schnellen Eichhörnchens, dass sich partout nicht mit nem Mund voller Blätter fotografieren lassen wollte). 

Music of the day: The Fountain OST because Clint Mansell is the God of Filmmusic and the movie is just amazing.

Musik des Tages: The Fountain OST weil Clint Mansell die beste Filmmusik der Welt schreibt und der Film großartig ist.

CSD 2010

Yesterday was Mannheim's Pride or how we cal it: CSD (even though we don't have a Christopher Street but whatever). I had a great time, it was much better organized than last year. So here are my impressions.

Gestern war in Mannheim der Christopher-Street-Day. Ich bin zur Parade und war angenehm überrascht, dass dieses Jahr alles besser organisiert schien wie letztes Jahr. Hier sind meine Impressionen.

The last image is what it is my favorite.

Das letzte Foto ist mein Favorit. Ich liebe den Ausdruck den der Mann dem Balloon entegenschickt. :-)
