  • Obersaxen II – perfect night sky found!

    Obersaxen is a small village in Graubinden (Switzerland), mostly known for the ski resorts and hiking. For me, it is one of the very few places in very urbanised Switzerland which still has relatively low light pollution. This was already a second time when we went to Obersaxen for the night sky gazing and Perseid…
  • Schaffhausen and falls

    Summer was quite busy, and we were travelling quite a lot. One of our trips was to the place I have already visited some time ago with my parents - Rheinfalls. Rheinfalls are one of the most popular places in Switzerland with thousands of visitors every day. We planned our trip from Zurich and took the…
  • Rainy and Cloudy Mythen

    Almost every weekend, when the weather is reasonably good we are trying to go somewhere. Sometimes it's hard to predict in the morning what will be the weather in the afternoon 50 km away from Zurich in the mountains. This was one of those days - the forecast was quite ok so we risked and…
  • Krakow’s Adventure

    It was really a long time since my last post. Unfortunately, recently I was quite busy and also had no much time to focus on photography. However, I would like to share with you my pictures from the trip in May, to the city which is especially important to me, the city where I was…
  • Amden and hunting for Eagle

    Last few months were not very productive regarding my photographic adventures, mostly because of the poor weather, secondly because I was missing my inspiration. Nevertheless, after many weeks of rain and overcast sky, a time of good weather visited Switzerland. To enjoy views and also not to overextend ourselves, we decided to go to Amden…
  • Zurich Christmas market and lightshow

    Last year we didn't attend many Christmas market events, however, we were told about the light festival (Illuminarium - Yuki ist da) which took place in Landesmuseum Zürich. The show itself was rather ok - music and animated story behind it  and the laser show for the finale. The surrounding though, was much more interesting.…
  • Raspberry Pi based home made light meter for analogue camera

    As soon as I bought my first medium format camera, Yashica MAT 124G I realized that there will have a problem with exposure meter. First of all, camera was released in 1970, so the light meter is not very accurate. Secondly, it uses mercury 1.35V batteries which are no longer available and only expensive and…
  • New in the family: Xiaomi Mijia Sphere Camera – review

    For the first time I had a contact with 360° photos in 2013 when I have bought my first smartphone: Google Nexus 4. Already back then Nexus's camera had an option to create 360° photos. At this point, I thought it will be just a passing fashion and nothing else. The hype for so-called virtual…
  • Analog Diary II

    After some time I have finally sent two new films (Kodak Portra 400 120) for developing. I was waiting for them even more intrigued because this time I also sent films from my first medium format camera, Yashica MAT 124G. I was not even sure if this camera and the exposure meter work properly so…
  • Engelberg – Titlis weekend trip

    As our first destination after happy holidays we have chosen, very well known for ski-jumping sports fans, Engelberg. We got there with only one stopover in Luzern. The village is placed in a stunning valley surrounded by mountains from all sides. Because the weather was excellent, we decided to take a cable car up to…
