After two and a half years of waiting, postponing, lame excuses and unexpected last minute delays I’m not sure if this is really real or if I passed away last night and woke up in a parallel universe of infinite possibilities. But a box arrived today and it says Lab-Box.
I’ll keep you posted when I develop my first roll of film in it but I have been super lazy shooting film for a couple of months. And to be honest I was even thinking of quitting film altogether as I currently can’t justify keeping all the gear for two rolls of film a year but maybe this little box came just in time.
I’ll keep it short but it looks like it’s getting pretty cold in hell right now – the LabBox project seems to be shipping the final product. We’ll see how it goes and if it arrives. And if it’s working.
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!
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…
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.
