yes. i'm continuing to post my neg scans, of course i do. i just want to seperate prints (selected images) from my blog.

so here a trix again. 18:30min 21C° moving 3x/30seconds. xtol 1:1 exposed at 1600-2400iso

she wanted a new ID for a website. so i added her to this "series".

we were cooking later that night. actually it worked out. 50/2@2 + close up (DR-summicron)

were playing snooker later. this was the looongest kick.. he even had to balance with his leg.

for everyone who hasn't had the possibility to read the sayings in our main pub ;) ps: yeah the summi is sharp.

he won the price for being most drunk that night. it has been about 4am already.

schef and i won 2 free beer because we won against the owners 10:0 in table soccer. what a game !! quick and to the point. like that queens of the stone age song, well almost..

again we got kicked out. it was about 5am. schef is pissing on a church. i had to do that too then.

we went to the infamous "grill-bar". number one adress for late night hot-dogs and curry-sausages. each of us had one of these. this benz parked outside. this place is always good to meet all kind of people, pimps, beggars, people from villach, the police, phil collins..

we thought that this man was the mercedes' driver. that pissed him off.. because he was driving an audi. he was kinda posh.. or more yuppi or almost guppi ! well.. he saw me there with my camera.. and said "are you taking a photo of me with that leica" the photo happened somewhere in between these words.. i was way to tired to meter or focus after 10hours printing in the darkroom, developing films, cooking, snooker, table-soccer, beer, vodka, curry-saussages..... but it seems like everything was perfect.

i felt like this guy already. suki. nice name. like something you can eat, something japanese. 1/4th here. didn't hold it though..

6am i think. i'd call that photo like that, if i had to give it a name.

or better this one. 6am. yes. they looked like 6am.

schef insisted on taking a photo of me. it was second last frame.. i was a bit too sloppy with winding up the film correctly.. so two negs didn't got fixed correctly.. it happens.

a roll of trix. normal.

a pigeon flew right into the window. she let it free again. a print would show more detail.

the classic hipshot

a homeless with laptop ? well that's what it looked like to me. strange scene.

pirates of the 13a !

make up for the shooting.

the best about the shooting:

last scene of the filming

on that photo you can see the white plastik foil, i was kneeling on the whole shooting for hours.. she was so tiny, that i had to take photos from that perspective to make her look "more representative" for their CI and such..

the shooting took about 10hours and 1000 1dsMKII raws.. i don't really want to be the one who selects the good stuff from the bad ;)

last frame was taken in tobias garage-metal-band-cellar.

i have borrowed berns 28/1.9 voigtlander ultron lens for a day, to see what it is like. it's actually the third ultron i have used. the first was a used lens, linus has bought it via ebay. it had backfocus. the second was a new one, from the store, bernhards, it had backfocus. this one, the third is the replaced one of bernhards ultron. guess what. backfocus again. all ultrons have backfocus. we're wondering why.

well on this shot you won't see it, 28mm on f5.6 on distance focus..

unfortunately i have shot this one on 28/2.. but the focus isn't as off as on other frames.. i'm glad that this frame turned out good.

back to my summi 35/2. this man just walked over a rather multi-tracked street, with his crutch under his arm while looking down all the time.

we went to some house (flat) warming party.

there we smoked one shisha after another.. i love that thing.

jam sessions included !

we all got sleepy after a while. got back home at 6am. ps: i shot all the photos without working metering. my batteries were empty. god bless mechanic shutters ;)

yesterday my gradpa celbrated his 75th birthday. more or less the whole family (my mothers, parents are divorced) came together. something that happenes every few years.

i remember i've seen her last time with hair short as mine. must have been a couple of years. my 10ys old cousin.

my dr.uncle in my grandfathers appartement and former atelier.

i wasn't the only "comissioned" one there. i think he shot colour though... my grandpa shooting for the family album, just like me, right ? ;)

haha.. my oldest cousin. saw him last time at the age of 10. now he's almost 16. maybe the biggest change that happened. everyone else stayed the same.

the carpet. present number one. family standing around it.

the photo-collage. present number two. my younger uncle looking as if he had something to hawk haha.

the plant. aloe vera. third present. my mother and sisters. they're the esotheric ones in the family. maybe some sort of natural viagra plant.. who knows.

and finaly the cake. present number 4. i took this one while holding the camera high up above everyone. you know like these canon-markII dudes do when they shoot paris and co. except that i had f2.0 1/45th and manual focus and no flash.. love how this shot turned out!

grandpa cutting the cake. one of my fav frames from that day.

my grandmother wanted to have a photo of her grandchilds.. so i had to take a "staged" shot. this one i took right after the staged one was done. i prefer it much more to "everyone is smiling".

the two boys. 13 and 15. best age for family meetings, i know...

we went to eat dinner later. we took the public transport. the funny thing was that i was shooting for the family, documenting the birthday, but when we go by tram, i surely have to take some streetshots in between. just a funny thought.

finaly at the table. we we're waiting almost one and half hour for the meal. that's why the dessertwas for free..

so we had time to do all kind of nonsense. like my gradfather, doing some sketh of my mother. she looks like a moster on it. it's meant to be funny of course and it was.

and more nonsense .. heh.

little cousine.

after the meal. grandpa got tired. his shirt is full of elephants.

my 10ys old cousin took this one. trix normal 1/8th f2.0 0.7m distance.. now that's what i call well done, spot on focus, no blur... good job ! (i helped a little)

the light over there was much better... i had f2.0 1/15th and 1/8th all the time.

little cousine showing some modern nintendo-tamagotchi game to her father.

she was obsessed with my sisters cellphone later.

he was still sleepy. that frame says it all i think, it was his birthday in the end and the whole family celebrated it and then went their ways again.
