Contarex: my new love

I inherited this beauty from my father. I didn't get around to trying it out until now. Today I picked up the prints and I'll share them with you in the next days.

Die Kamera habe ich von meinem Vater bekommen, kam aber leider bisher noch nicht dazu, sie auszuporbieren. Das hat sich jetzt geändert und ich zeig euch mal ein paar Fotos.

Early morning, cold, sun was just rising. And there was some fog. I love autumn. It's so dramatic.

Ganz früh am morgen, während des Sonnenaufgangs im leichten Nebel. Herbst ist toll. Dramatisch irgendwie.

mittens: sexy and useful

Okay, maybe not sexy. Cute. But very useful. I usually wear them in winter when taking photos. (Only the thumb has to suffer frostbites, but who needs thumbs *weak smile*).

How do you protect your hands and your camera from the cold?  (Mine is stuffed into a woolen hat...)

Green Nailpolish

I have a confession to make. I am addicted to nailpolish. Really. I recently bought a couple and ventured out into colours I never considered as looking good. To my surprise, this one does. I like it. It's dark green with sparkles. I thought the brand was some cheapish thing, because it's just 1,95 euro. But it's Maybelline New York and it's good!

Good Morning Moon / Guten Morgen lieber Mond.

Yesterday I missed a spectacular dawn by 30 seconds. This morning I caught the moon before it set. The world was calm and cold and nothing moved. Beautiful.

Gestern habe ich zwar einen unglaublichen Sonnenaufgang verpasst, weil ich 30 Sekunden zu spät war, dafür hatte ich heute aber einen Vollmond direkt vor meinem Fenster. Draußen war noch alles ganz ruhig uns still und einfach wunderschön.

when it's cold, cuddle.

First frost. Fog. Cold.
The cats cuddle. And build caves. And sleep above the heater.
Me too, please?

I am always in search for light. I love to aim right into it. I love the way it moves.

Ich bin immer auf der Suche nach Licht, fotografiere direkt hinein und liebe die Art, wie es sich bewegt.

Autumn with the Diana Mini

I love autumn. It's the time for tea, a novel and shuffling through leaves. And the latter is even more fun if you have the Diana Mini.

Ich liebe ja den Herbst. Wer nicht. Die Teezeit beginnt. Man kann sich zum Lesen einigeln. Und durch Blätter schlürfen. Und mit der Diana Mini macht das noch mehr Spass.

Thingstätte Heidelberg

Diana and Revueflex style... mehr Infos hier.

I went all the way up there to the top of the tower. I did mention before that I am not too happy when high up? I went down much more quickly than I got up. *lol*

Spirit Day: please repost, tweet, blog, wear purple

Spirit Day honors the teenagers who had taken their own lives in recent weeks. But just as importantly, it's also a way to show the hundreds of thousands of LGBT youth who face the same pressures and bullying, that there is a vast community of people who support them.
Purple symbolizes 'spirit' on the rainbow flag, a symbol for LGBT Pride that was created by Gilbert Baker in 1978.
As one of the event's Facebook pages says: "This event is not a seminar nor is it a rally. There is NO meeting place. All you have to do is wear purple." 
Wearing purple on October 20 is a simple way to show the world that you stand by these courageous young people and a simple way to stand UP to the bullies. Remember those lives we've tragically lost, and show your solidarity with those who are still fighting. 'Go Purple' today!

True Lomographer

Spotted this in the newspaper. I'm the one on the right with the Diana Mini dangling from my neck, following Rules # 2, 3 and 4 from The Ten Golden Rules of Lomography.  I did shoot two or three images and the film will go to the lab tomorrow. :-)

War auf dem Feudenheimer Stadtfest in Mannheim und wurde prompt vom Zeitungsfotografen geknipst. Die Diana Mini immer griffbereit folge ich den Regeln 1-4 der 10 Goldenen Regeln von Lomography. Bin ja mal gespannt was auf meinem Film dann drauf ist.

when in doubt: shopping

Because I heard so many good things about it, I went to Primark. And I bought these:

my little-red-riding-hood coat

I am slightly obsessive with turtleneck pullovers. I love them in all colors and to combine them.

for example, with this.

or under that dress (which was just 11 Euro yes)

these aren't from today.

neither are those, but I am not sure I will keep them. Because I bought them for riding.


the new Primark boots and the old ones- I have a soft spot for these kind of style.
