time to say good bye i guess. good bye to devinatart.. it's a waste of time to struggle against some narrow minded admins and a generally fucked policy. the site actually had some bad influence on my work too in the end. all you get is praise and stereotype bullshit.. your general amount of favourits.. and no, really no critique at all that helped. so why stay there.. i would also say that the quality of art on DA is very low.. because nobody cares. so in short, i dedicated this photo to deviantart:
but, actually, i'm leaving with a smile..
had to shoot a in camping areas for vienna tourism useage:
the owner of the van was from manchester.. he and his gf traveled around in europe for the last 4 month.. i wonder why they had no camera with them !
ps: it's getting hot in here.. so.. what would nelly say?
one of the best places to be is the MQ.. linus and i were chilling there.. at night it is even better !
right ! that's a bessa with 40/1.4 nokton, his babe, lying there in between us.. that day i sold him 10 agfa ultra rolls... i have plenty of them, anyone intrested in pruchasing ? ;)
ps you can start your bets on my used M6, planing to get a new one.. here is the ebay: M6@ebay
i'm also selling that nikkor 300/2.8 AF lens now.. also at ebay.
i've been printing in the darkroom again lately... the hardcore session was from 8pm till 6am a few days ago, i don't have them scanned yet, some are too large for scans too.. did many RCs and a few fibers too.. it has had 31 degrees in the darkroom that night.. i tell you it was hardcore.. but it payed off... i did some of my best prints.. one is for chris (but *shh!* ;))
ps: don't expect many digital photos in the next days, MKII+70-200is and macro lens got stolen in the agency.. that fucker forgot the ring-flash... and the 24-70 was at my home.. so i saved it (haha)
here are some recent scans from my latest two films:
fuji astia 100 (E6) (3years expired) exposed at 80, olympus OM1, 24mm/2.0:
ps: homer and linus were from that roll too.. also that pinky smile shot...
and now to a film i was curious about. got it from bernhard today.
agfa apx100. olympus OM1, 35/2:
actually took the closer one first... i saw her from behind already, set exposure and aperture and guessed the focus distance i'll have.. passed by turned, shot.. she did not realize me though, even if it was so obvious... after passing her, i turned around and saw her still like that... aurelio a friend of mine who was with me said if we could help her.. and i was just not sure what to do with her.. i usually ask people that seem to be lost, but she didn't seem to be lost, she seemed to be completely away...
this frame, i took right after the two of the woman, also 35/2 lens:
something for my bike-collection.. i saw it passing by in the tram and on my way home i walked, so that i can take a photo of it.. this time 24/2 lens:
this version is cropped though, the following isn't:
tribute to jamey trueblood once more ? possibly an austrian version... haha
the tram suddenly stopped right under a traffic light.. i haven't seen what has happened but it seemd fun that people couldn't cross the street:
the frame before was while i was still sitting.. (stood up for the shot of people waiting in front of the train)... i wonder, if you know "sudoku".. seems like every second plays it.
i was close to her, very close.. she heard the shutter of course.. well, many people think i'm a perv, just because i shoot on the street and in public areas... i can only give a shit, right !?
finally one of my recent fav photos, and my fav of this roll with the up-side-down bike and the old people.. surely one of my next prints:
