Autumn in Taunus

Last week, we packed our backpacks and headed out to the Taunus, to get prepared for our approaching journey to Nepal. The weather looked rather drab when we were in the train. However, once we reached the mountains and forests of the Taunus, it turned out that the misty atmoshpere together with the wonderfully colorful autumn leaves created a mysterious and fairytale-like mood.

Lago Di Como

Earlier this year we went to Lake Como with our friends Alexandra, Foteini, Phil and Michael - yet another great trip in what has become a wonderful annual tradition! Though the wheather was pretty bad we had a lot of fun and enjoyed the beautiful scenery and tasty italian food.

My first post

I was recently promoted! From a humble lens carrier to officially-named assistant photographer - my sincere gratitude to the owner of this blog for the honor and the hospitality! I guess the passive learning all these years, the luck of the first time and the colorful saris helped for these four (out of ?!§$) good photos! I hope you like them! It was real fun trying to figure out all the camera buttons, apertures and ISOs, the lenses, the light, the right angles, and all the 'colors and contrasts', and to try to capture some moments of all these happy people at Kasia's and Anand's wedding. And of course a clear realization how much work this whole photography business is! I guess I will be going soon back to my jewelry making :) Cu soon (?), Ioanna

Linhof goes Greece: Acropolis

During our last visit to Greece, we took the Linhof along. It was a lot of fun and worthwhile the effort. Special thanks to the airline who let us take the oversized case into the cabin and to the hotel owners for not noticing that their bathrooms were turned into darkrooms for developing the negatives during the nights! And of course to Ioanna for accepting a third party on our holiday ;) I start with a shot from our last day, taken once more from the mountain of Lycabettus, one of my favourite spots in Athens. You see the Linhof looking towards the Acropolis and then the picture taken with the Linhof. More to come!

Mountains of Greece: Karpathos

I completely neglected my >Mountains in Greece< series, so today finally another entry from our trip to the remote but beautiful island of Karpathos showing the mountain village called Olimpos.

During our visit to Florida, we did a one day hiking and kayaking trip in the Everglades. Walking in mystical forests up to our knees in water, almost bumping into alligators and crocodiles with a kayak and seeing all kind of wildlife made this one of the best days of our stay!

Over new year we were in Florida. Among other things, we saw many alligators, which for me was maybe the most impressive thing of our stay.
Stay tuned for the american crocodile in a future post ....

Carnival in Kastoriá

About a year ago, we went to Kastoriá, where we spent the first days of the new year. I had posted some pictures of the lakes around the city (see, e.g. here and here), but I never talked about the amazing carnival - the Ragoutsária - that is happening around the 6th of January. The whole town is filled with Balkan music, almost every taverna and bar is packed with people and musicians, and in addition there are at least a dozen bands playing in the (freezing cold) streets - loud, energetic and crazy. The reason I never posted pictures was that I hoped to be able to post some videos I had taken. While the image quality was really great, the tiny microphone in my camera couldn't cope with the large number of tubas, trumpets, horns, trombones and percussion instruments only a few meters away. So I finally gave up and decided to post some pictures instead. I hope you still get a feeling of the energy in the city during these nights!
