How it all began – at least for me. This is my dad’s old but beautiful (analogue) SLR. I remember when I was a kid, how fascinated I was when he was lying on the ground taking photos of flowers or talking about lenses.
I was about 10 years old when he explained to me the basics like shutter speed, aperture, etc. and the most important thing in photography by far – composition.
He actually entrusted me this gem for my school trips to Berlin (when Germany had still been divided) and Prague – always with a nifty fifty on it. I guess that’s why this focal length is still my favourite after so many years.
Anyways, I will forever be grateful for introducing me to the fascinating world of photography – which is not just a passion for me, but also kind of therapeutic, making me whole.

BTW: Last week a set of new 35mm film arrived (both colour and bw) – so be prepared for some analogue fun in the coming months.

Stay tuned!
