Once again there was a delay in Lab-Box’s communication updates and another promise wasn’t kept. Of course this belated update has the same old purpose that we already know too well – they are sorry but they have to tell us another unforseen delay in delievery and the scapegoat is clear: the Chinese!
Our last trip this year took us to Georgia in October. We had two complete weeks to discover the small country in the Southern Caucasus.
The Lab-Box team has meanwhile learned a lesson: you need to keep your backers posted on the progress of your project.Continue reading “Lab-Box: another lesson in patience”
I have owned my Contax T2 for 2 years, and I have grown very fond of it. When you realize that worldly possessions begin to take possession of you, it’s time to part with it. I hope that another photographer will have as much joy with the camera as I had.
As I currently have a long article in the making which still needs some time to be finished I’ll just post a short update as the Lab-Box Kickstarter campaign informed all backers about its latest progress.
No reason for premature celebrations but it looks like the Lab-Box development tank will one day become reality. The makers posted a new update here and they seem to have made some progress. And they encountered new issues, so hang on…
A while ago we spent two days in Grindelwald, Switzerland. The Bernese mountains are world famous and the whole region has a very unique feature: the Jungfraujoch.
I see this as a first light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe someday we will see a finished product. Hang on.
After travelling to rather uncommon holiday places like Ukraine, Russia, China and Iran in the last few years we wanted to get a little bit more laid back and we decided to do a small roadtrip through the baltic countries Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia in our two weeks of summer holidays in 2018. To most people these countries still are very uncommon compared to the super popular travel places in southern Europe so I’d like to share some impressions here.
After the few days in Holland we went to Germany’s Ruhrgebiet or as they call it the “Ruhrpott”. This area of Germany is famous for its open-cast mining and steelworks some of which are active to this day.
