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?

 

First district

 

 

 

Tram ride to Judith

 

Next day, view from my bed 

 

 

 

Good bye Vienna

 

Back in Berlin

 

Found bunnies playing basketball

 

 

Gendarmenmarkt

 

 

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.

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.

 

Urbanhafen

 

People signing up for the urban gardening project at Tempelhof Park

 

After almost a year on the waiting list, this became ours!

 

Landing strip

 

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

 

Cuvrybrache

 

Last one with the 28mm. I liked this lens a lot. It made me think and shoot differently.

 

Leap

 

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

 

Goerlitzer Park

 

Pizza!

 

 

Hermannstraße
