hello all.
it's been a while. well guess what. it was christmas. say hello to me and my sisters present. i'm the kind of candies.


on the 23rd i was buying some food for a dinner. i came across this car. a lovely old mercedes, in red, with red leather seats and everything you need. some sort of early christmas present. i hope you're insuranced mister, or miss ?



a mother left her baby, well not really, just went inside a tobacconist for a short moment. i could hear her telling the baby, she's going to be back in a moment. this could have been the start of a christmas - drama film, you know, but movies and the real world aren't often the same..

i took my time to take a photo of the baby, holding this letter. i liked this moment. children are such patient models.


this lady was having a phone call in the tram. some people avoid having a chat on the cellphone in public areas that are more or less silent. others do the opposite, like her. it seemed like she was talking to her granddaughter. it was obvious that they had an argument. you always heard her saying "oh nicolette, nicolettchen".. the dog somehow looked so pissed, it made me chuckle.








i'm really using the 50mm for some shots. it's good to have one.


order cheap strong alcohol. like rum. sugar and coffe (beans). first chew the beans, then the sugar, drink the alcohol (rum is best) and continue chewing the beans and sugar. we call it "cocks".. it's a quick way to "warm up".

loving the new possibility for close focus with the 50/2 DR summi.




she's back in vienna. for 3 weeks.


like always. i was meeting family again at christmas. more than once. parents are divorced, so are grandparents. i often "celebrate" christmas 3 times or more.


it's still a deja vu every year.


my grandpa. he's freaky. but funny.


my sister. she's got some sticker on her skin that works like the pill. it's better to remove them quickly to avoid small pain. seems like my sister didn't know that ;)


the family photo. i shot on 3200 asa f2.0 and cought the flash of my grandfathers camera who took the photo at the same moment.. kinda "flashy" ;)


the other family. my fathers.








they have a dog. who eats some cheese from time to time..

and here we are again in our usual pub.



we got seriously drunk.. i think the last photo represents the evening best.

@travis:

it does baby.. and if not it'd be the lens fault.. but since both of my lenses work.. i'm the lucky bastard.

@pheela: it's winter. time for 400-3200iso.. shooting trix normal and +3 these days. if you see sunny photos i might have shot 125 plus-x but that's rare.

neopan1600 has a nice contrast yes, but it needs very accurate exposure for best results.

@flipo: xtol. einfach nur xtol

i got a feeling of sadness from this set of photos.i can't explain it very well,can only say that you've managed to express the gloomy feeling of a separated family at christmas time.

this is a brilliant shot:

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Now, I feel good, I begin take up real money.
It gets down to choose a proper companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the income with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
