George R.R.Martin: A Dance with Dragons

A Dance With Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire, #5)A Dance With Dragons by George R.R. Martin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

He did it again. Not telling you to whom because of spoilers but he did it and I am not forgiving him for it.

The best parts were those with the dragons. These were awesome because stuff happened rather thank all the scheming and plotting. Plus dragons: always a good thing to have.

I still think that book 4 wasn't really necessary, e.g. Brienne story could have been completely left out and just told by her in this book (or the next), because she will do it anyway as sort of exposition/recapture for all the readers who don't remember.

Otherwise, the beginning I though was slow progress. As I expected it would be because I've been there in book 4. But then it got more interesting. It is still a bit too slow-paced for me and sometimes I get confused with the chapter titles because each person often gets assigned more than one attribute (other than their names as it used to be in book 1 etc).

365 doubles - part 1

Surprisingly small damage for the back of the camera falling off...



As you can see, I really do need the practice. Doubles are a mystery to me.



To get the exposure and the sharpness just right... but these are okay:



Second roll is at the lab. Third in the camera. I shall master this. *determined face*

X-Pro Acoustic




Am 27.1. war ich, leicht angeschlagen, als Fotografin im  Cafe Filsbach in Mannheim, auf dem X-Pro Acoustic 2012 Konzert als Fotografin unterwegs.
Leider können die Fotos die Top Stimmung und tollen Songs nicht 100% wiedergeben.



Aber wie ihr sehen könnt, war das Cafe bis auf den letzten Platz gefüllt.


Falls ihr neugieirg seid, schaut doch mal auf der Homepage von X-Pro vorbei.

Quarter Horse






The weather was breathtaking. Cold (as you can witness in the last shot) and bright and sunny. Is there anything better than to watch a horse gallop freely?

color me blue





Hasselblad 500 C/M
Kodak expired slide film

I'm not that big a fan of blue.. but.. then again.. why not? It's what happens with expired film. I didn't even cross-process it.
