First things first. The contest: I was quite surprised about the huge amount of “entries”! So thanks for all your comments and guesses but to be honest, you were quite off. 150 mins, Rodinal 1+50, 20°C, Kodak Tri-X400 rated at ISO3200 – that’d have been the right answer. So, accoding to the comments Fabian was closest – Kudos Fabian.
But again: Thank you guys, it’s cool that there are plenty of people participating.
On a side-note: I usually try to answer most comments via Email but apparently WordPress “forgot” about a few comments. So, Vincent: Thanks a lot. Glad you check out this blog!
Vienna awaits you. Seriously, I laughed out loud when I saw the negative.
Quite a boring photograph but as I’m working on a series of reading people on public transport (which definitely has never been done before) it’s quite remarkable. Needs more red.
The other day. Alex doing his I’m-fucking-hungry-face. “Oida, Ich hab an Gaachen deluxe.”
Bus. 400TX and 1/30, f/2 – oh Summer, where did you go?
OK. National Holiday. He’s guarding something. Not sure what but it’s something important for sure because that mean face is definitely guarding something very important. Oh, the rifle wasn’t loaded.
I’m afraid this is the only frame that I like from that day.
There are photographers and there are protographers.
Some drunk bloke talking to some military personal. Fantastic.
Good couple: Big black monster comera and shiny you-know-what.
Some absolutely useless soldier doing nothing.
He’s been well trained in doing so.
“Haaße und Mäubraka.”
Some Kevins taking pictures of a disgusting Langosch (wie schreibt man den Mist eigentlich?). I suppose eating that stuff is for them is like some Euro-guy having spiders with cream.
Stupid photograph. But his face is quite special.
Kid with rocket-launcher. We live in a sad world. (emocut
May I introduce: A family portrait. Neopan1600.
The little fatty.
Ever considered a bar keeper as a coach? I guess it’s time.
Some ladies having “Sprühwein nach Art des Hauses”.
I know, it’s pretentious but the negatives looks absolutely stunning. Too bad they’ll never see their picture. Oh well. Nice tones and grain still. (ha)
Coach at work.
Important. Wise. Brave. Fantastic. Pretentious. YOUR FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT, MY SON. YESSIR, 1 F-STOP OVEREXPOSED TO BE PRECISE.
So the next day I met two nice ladies from Czechia. We had some coffee because I definitely needed one after all that training (with that fantastic coach) previous night… oh well. So this is Eva by the way.
And this is some random lady that is vomitting in my face. I suppose this is because of my very not-so-vital look.
And this is Suzie. Like I always say: Good thing they ended the USSR…
Almost all people I meet are photographers. Or try to be.
Home is where your heart is.
Beer and cocktails.
OK. Once more mediocre photograph. But the guy’s reading so it’s part of my important series.
So, it’s Sunday and I had tickets for some Chinese movie which was part of the Viennale (film festival).
Toy camera face.
Funny scanner exposing for the shadows. Fantastic.
I think I like Neopan1600.
So this is Besma. Shooting only ladies lately, eh?
And Lorant. One more lady.
Besma, wie hoch sprint die deutsche Schäferkatze?
Holy fuck: Two guys and a fence.
So, ok. Some philosophical blahblah. I really think this frame has some sort – excuse – potential. When I look at that photo I don’t see 72dpi rastered pixel-grain but a deep black print. Yes. Important. Gscheit reden. Whatever.
This photograph was taken yesterday, 31st of October and they are already opening the christmas market. Am I the only one who thinks that this is highly fucked up? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a big fan of christmas in general but why so early? Why can’t we have a one-week-christmas-over-kill. Shops open 24/7, every 10 m a cash machine, public transport going directly to the shopping lanes and lots of crying kids. That’d be sweet.
On the tram.
Somewhat overexposed. Oh well. Some business guy playing some card game on some palm top on some tram. Some times some photos make more sense when you add some not so important information that give the general impression of importance.
Hey, thanks for reading once again and I hope you have a fantastic weekend. Tomorrow, I’m going to be a fine promotor telling people to get a Nikon D80… hm, guess it’s no good idea having the toycamera round my neck then. Oh well.
