Public Viewing

July 10th, 2014  |  by  |  published in Feature, Hamburg, Stories

Public Viewing In case you haven't noticed, soccer is a huge thing in Germany. Immensely huge. While at home, various clubs attract specific clientele - St. Pauli for example is much more attractive to the "social underbelly" than Bayern Munich is which tends to attract well situated followers. When it comes to the big international tournaments, soccer becomes the great equalizer and Germans from all walks of li...

Happy New Year!

January 2nd, 2014  |  by  |  published in Blog, Feature

Happy New Year! I wish everybody a happy new year 2014! For me, 2013 has been a very busy year with lots of work related travel and 2014 looks just as busy - in fact I am leaving for a business trip to CES at Las Vegas this weekend. Just like last year, I'll be leaving that couch behind me a lot in 2014. And one of the resolutions for the new year is that I'm going to share more of my travel and photography with ...

Konica Hexar AF – a quiet camera for quiet moments

August 26th, 2013  |  by  |  published in Gadgets

Konica Hexar AF - a quiet camera for quiet moments The term compact camera often has a condescending ring to it, as most compact cameras don't live up to premium expectations. In the 1990s, when film photography was still a mass market for professionals and consumers alike, a number of Japanese manufacturers - many of them not in the photography business anymore today - swarmed the market with a range of outstanding premium compact cameras, some o...

June 10th, 2013  |  by  |  published in Feature, Stories

London Street | Analog - Part Two In part one of this blog post, I shared London's Underground and trains as well as some quieter street scenes away from the main hustle and bustle of the busy areas.

London Street | Analog - Part One There are a handful of cities on this planet that stand out from the all the other cities in terms of relevance, vibrancy, culture, flair and maybe even something intangible as mojo. It's not easy to define the definite top ten of metropolises with the top contenders in order to each other, but it's pretty clear that cities such as New York City, Tokyo, Paris and London rank very high in this top ...

A different Minolta CLE review: Minolta CLE versus Minolta XD7

June 8th, 2012  |  by  |  published in Gadgets

A different Minolta CLE review: Minolta CLE versus Minolta XD7 There's no doubt a lot has been written on the Internet about this little Minolta rangefinder camera already, even though the camera is out of production since long before the Internet became a reality in the first place. Among all the rangefinder camera systems available throughout the last decades, the CLE has always been somewhat of a dark horse. Minolta was an excellent manufacturer in the day...
