A few days ago I finally got around to scanning in the remaining Holga photos which I shot in India on the recent trip. A selection of these is now up on the Holga page. [Click here to view]

I was in Budapest at the end of June, but I only now got around to scanning and uploading the various photos. The set I put together is a rather unequal mix of polaroids, black & white Holga and (mostly) black & white Hipstamatic pics. I had been to Budapest before and shot a good many photos then (which I always liked since it was winter and the city was snowed in), so I felt less of an urge to go out and document the city, hence the photos in this set tend to be a bit more incidental in nature. I still hope you enjoy them.
Every year in early summer, Berlin holds its “Carnival of Cultures”, a parade where the many ethnic groups residing in Berlin can showcase their cultural talents. So you have everything from African and South American to Japanese and Indian folk groups and dancers – including not a few German housewives showing off their talents at samba dancing 😉 . The results are mixed, not every group is a hot act, even if most of the participating dancers and musicians make up in enthusiasm for what they lack in talent… but overall the carnival is fun to watch… and it is fun to watch the watchers.
I took one of my Holgas to this year’s parade, and shot several films, both of the participants and of the onlookers. I shot both in color and in black & white, and used an inlay to get 16 exposures rather than the normal 12, which is why this time the photos are rectangular rather than square.

I finally got around to reorganizing all the China photos from the eight trips or so which I took to that country over the past eight years. So [here] is a new gallery with the photos from Beijing, Shanghai, Jinan and Hong Kong, all shot with with the Holga, Lubitel and/or Diana+ cameras. Enjoy.
I spent a few days in Prague earlier this month. It’s a city that is charming enough but is a bit over-run by tourists – well, no wonder, it does have sights to spare. Here is an album of photos I shot there. Most of them are in black and white, which suited both the city and the weather. Like so many recent sets shot on recent trips, about half the photos were taken with an iPhone and the other half with a Holga.
I uploaded photos from a couple of rolls I shot with a Holga on 17 March, the first day here in Berlin which was warm enough to actually feel like spring. The photos were all taken around Alexanderplatz, except for the Buddha pic, which is from the “Indian Fountain” in Kreuzberg.
