this week my stinchen turned 28. and this year we will reach 3333 joint days. without you i would be nothing. you teach me the things i don't preside over. be sure, i'm going to look out for you carefully.
time has come: winter has finally gone here at lake constance, spring is bypassed and we'll fluently proceed to summer, hopefully. such being the case we indulged in the first ice cream today, although almost zero degrees made it harder for us to enjoy the refreshment.
today, on easter monday, we visited our friends tanja and marcel, who recently had their second baby. during the afternoon i had the privilege of portraying the whole family, including my friend mika, the crumb snoot, and even his grandma and his grandpa. compared with his only a few weeks old sister, mika only seems to keep still, when he is sleeping or eating. so i had to take advantage of that circumstance for the snapshot above, although you usually should not photograph people at table.
some people represent the personalisation of self-confidence. regardless, of whether i like their doings, styles, apperances or whether there is a doubting soul underneath the cool exterior: just because of their bravery these people earn my respect.
there are always two sides of the medal: unfortunately our time in the historic flat here at lake constance won't be everlasting, where the change will probably bring along a lot of new opportunities. so it's high time for me to document the characteristics of the more than 300 years old building more often now, before we will have to leave this place in the near future.
what should someone do with half a holiday in a metropole like berlin? of course, go touring by metro to all the wonderful underground stations.
spending time in a metropole at the weekends can be compared to pure quality time. once again i'm able to visit extraordinary restaurants and bars, like the absolutely cheesy sixties diner in the center of berlin.
this is the functional part of our kitchen. the room per se is very large, but most of the time the action takes place in the shown corner. to make matters worse, there is a guy who - instead of helping the chef - runs around with his camera all the time... well, who might that be?
that one, who is still not sure about the capabilities of the walimex pro 8mm f2.8 fisheye lens, is given the chance to check a typical uwa sample in detail by today's posting. any more questions?
as long as the weather will stay that grey and misty, our sweet kitty nila won't leave the flat very often. as a consequence we have to look after and play with her more often than usual. even so we are easily able to tap into her cuteness.
