  • 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…
  • 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…
  • 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…
  • 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…
  • La Reunion diary – part II

    Finally! Second part of of pictures from our La Reunion Adventures. After calm beginning on the island we slowly started to discover south and middle part of La Reunion. First we visited Plage de Grande Anse, one of the most beautiful beaches I have seen. A small cove surrounded by volcano rocks with fine sand…
  • Analog Diary I

    For already quite some time I am an enthusiast of analogue photography. Everything started in late 2015 when I have won Nikon FE on auction for 17 CHF. I have never shot before with analogue so it was a completely new experience. My first roll had only 40% of good pictures - rest of them…
  • Obersaxen – looking for the perfect black sky

    Last adventure took us to Obersaxen, Graubünden. The idea was to spend a night in the Alpine hut and enjoy the Perseid's Meteor Shower. Obersaxen is situated in a valley and basing on Light Pollution Map, it is one of the very few places in Switzerland where light pollution is minimal. As always, I took…
  • Como – Italian Adventure

    In the middle of June, together with friends, we went for a weekend to Italy. Silvia, my italian lab mate, organized a wonderful trip to Como and Cantu. What should I write more? Perfect weather, delicious food and Como lake. Weather was ideal for sunbathing but unfortunately not so great for photos - very hard…
  • Walensee and Weesen hike

    Few weeks ago we wanted to go somewhere for a hike but possibly close to lake. Because Zurich lake is almost fully urbanised and there are very few real hiking routs we chose to go to the next bigger lake - Walensee. It was already our third hike in the Walensee area but this time…
