holidays? not so much …


Too many cameras. Just enough fairy lights.

We don’t do christmas around here, or take part in any religous winter/end-of-year celebrations, so the end of the year usually only means that we get out loads of lights and candles to make the place a bit cozier.

I was not in any kind of holiday mood at all, but I did take a few nice pictures that capture the mood quite well.

More lights.


My roommate decided we would have a tree after all. It had zombies and a few developed rolls of film as a garland.


And my beloved enamel watering can that used to be a coffee pot in it’s previous life. I bought it at the flea market quite some time ago :)

still not over (roadtrip #2)


As the weather is quite lame, and nothing particularly interesting is happening right now, I’m finally posting the last few autumnal roadtrip-pictures :)










Hi blurry swan.

I really like autumn. Surprise.

You knew that already, didn’t you? Was it the seven billion pictures of colourful trees that gave me away?

Anyways … I was photo-skating (Like a photowalk, but on skates) at donauinsel, and I met a swan.


a hole in the wall


A hole in some old building filled with autumn and trees …
inside a hole in another building that is filled with construction work.

Two wonky holes in Graz.

Full of decay.



tl;dr: Everything is broken. I might attempt to fix some things.

I shot a roll of film … *Insert autumn walk story* and it does not look like expected. Stupid expired film is acting weird sometimes.

It ate all the shadows.

The film ate all the shadows and it looks like I only fixed one of what seems to have actually been two light leaks. But the polarizer-hack seems to be working fine: The polarizer can now be slipped on and off the lens easily, without screwing – Which is very convenient for a 2-eyed camera.

Also, I think my phone is broken (Or it’s just mad at me for not loving it enough … one can never be sure with these things). If you want to get in touch, maybe try something that is not my phone.

prater and purple


Here, have a look at my favourite attraction to take pictures of at the Prater.

Every time I’m there, there’s only one or two people riding this thing at a time. It’s really pretty though.


I’m not entirely convinced that the purple is the best film for this particular picture.

It makes all the lovely colours of the swing ride disappear, but that’s the beauty of analog photography I guess. Sometimes, things just happen. And one only notices when it’s too late to change anything about them.


Now this is what creepy looks like in Vienna.

Actually, this is how most of old fashioned (“traditional”) Vienna looks like: Flashy, albeit slightly rotten.

Vienna is a rather morbid city. Ever obsessed with death and decay …

prater and portra



Last week, like every year when summer comes to an end, I visited Prater. This time, I even brought a decent camera.

I shot two rolls of film, but I really need to make a separate post for the purple pictures. Here, have some Prater on Portra 400.
