Starting with some remaining photos of Vienna. I’m back in Berlin now, July has been busy, but I got to shoot quite a bit of random stuff.
As always all images shot on Tri-X (developed in Xtol) and Rollei Retro (developed in Rodinal).
MQ at night
I rarely take the camera with me when I go out at night, I’m paranoid about losing it. This night was an exception, but I realized I want a little point and shoot for these occasions.
Rafa and the crew
Next day, opening of the Elliott Erwitt retrospective
Didn’t turn out like I hoped.
But this one did. Notice his fried-egg brooche and the horn on his cane?
Tram ride to Judith
Next day, view from my bed
Good bye Vienna
Back in Berlin
Found bunnies playing basketball
Went to the Baltic Sea for a few days
It was rather cold, just warm enough to sit outside
Breakfast on the balcony with Yvonne
Switched to Rollei Retro 100 here
Didn’t shoot much during these days
Somehow I couldn’t find interesting scenes to shoot, I was also paranoid about getting sand into the lens (it was very windy), so I put the camera away
After the cold days at the beach, back in sunny Berlin
Axel and Romana visited from Vienna
Axel proudly presents his skatedecks. He runs Delight, an Austrian skate label, they make supercool decks.
Dinner at Bee’s
Jong-Eun and Juna. Tri-X +1

Lunch at CoCo. Back to Rollei Retro 100
Ralph Gibson exhib at Camera Work
Perusing some photo books
So the plan was to see the Diane Arbus exhibition.
We met at the entrance, started to geek out about cameras, lost track of time and totally missed the closing time.
I switched lenses with Max. 28mm Elmarit from here, everything seemed super wide in the beginning
Slowly getting used to the focal length
Looking for a bit of shade to change film
In the beginning I thought I wouldn’t be able to fill the 28mm, but I quickly noticed how much fun this lens was.
There’s no hiding with it.
People signing up for the urban gardening project at Tempelhof Park
After almost a year on the waiting list, this became ours!
Probably my favorite one from this entry
Max having an affair with my Rolleiflex
At the Soviet Memorial
We had no idea what this scene was about
Last one with the 28mm. I liked this lens a lot. It made me think and shoot differently.
Rafa visited from Austria
I saw him at a crossing and followed him into the station. I was fascinated that he was looking at black and white prints on the street
