1. My friend, Alex. We literally explored his backyard, which is a small mountain (visible in the second picture). It wasn’t all that small and quite a tough climb. We’ll be checking out other mountains in the area pretty soon, you never know what you’ll find at the top.

     
  2. More from the forest mountain day. I’d love to go back… if only it wasn’t so hard getting up there.
    (Note to self: wear hiking boots)

     
  3. Believe or not, this is the top of a mountain we hiked. There was a drastic division, literally - a barbed wire fence along the middle of it. On one side there was a lot of light green vegetation, on the other there were all these spooky trees lined up where barely any light came through. We are organic apple pop tarts and high fived. No beautiful view, no mystical cave, but the forest was quite enchanting. It was actually a pretty rough climb and considering I didn’t have proper attire I’m quite content with the results.

     
  4. Just for kicks. Literally.

     
  5. More from the rolli. The first and last picture were taken about 2 years apart. I definitely won’t let that much time go by ever again. I can’t seem to put it down now. I’m so surprised by how funky all the colors came out, prior to this roll I’d only shot in black and white with it.

     
  6. It’s indisputable that certain limitations are just trying to be a tease. No salvation. Oh nature, always adulating me. So much to see, so much to learn.

     
  7. Today is World Octopus Day! They are one of the most distinctive creatures on our planet. Although they tend to have a short life span, fossils date back to over 300 million years ago, which means that they pre-date dinosaurs. The octopus is a highly intelligent being with around 500 million neurons in their brain and tentacles. 
    In my opinion they are incredibly hypnotizing to look at. I can stare at them for hours, much like jellyfish. Absolutely fascinating…

     
  8. From the treasure chest. I have no clue what happened to this roll of film. I just rediscovered it, taken with my Diana in Switzerland, summer of 2008. Completely infatuated with the light leaks and grain. Gotta love film. Seriously.

     
  9. Started this roll of film almost 2 years ago if I’m not mistaken. So stoked to have finished it and have it developed! The double exposure was accidental, as usual. I loved the outcome though. More to come, hooray! <3

     
  10. Ich weiss nicht ob es an mir liegt, aber seitdem wir dorthin gegangen sind hat sich etwas verändert. Es war wirklich wunderschön. Es hat sich total gelohnt kaum zu schlafen und um fünf Uhr Morgens aufzustehen um den Sonnenaufgang mit einem offenen Mund zu beobachten. Ja, wir haben gestaunt, wie nie zuvor. Vielleicht liegt es ja daran, dass es verdammt schwer sein wird so was schönes im Leben wieder zu erleben. Na komm, wir toppen das schon noch!

     
  11. 500+ kms, 3088m. 6:00pm, 11 degrees. Pure magic.

     
  12. When you climb all the way to the top of an abandoned building and let your feet dangle from the top of the elevator shaft, this indescribable feeling overcomes you. Lungs full of dust and god knows what else. Euphoria, they say. I’ve always wondered what it must be like to fall, without the dying part.  

     
  13. Don’t think about it too much.

  15. It’s definitely not about the destination, I can’t stress that enough. It’s about the journey, and who walks through the fire with you. We decided to go to the lake, out of the blue, as usual. However, we weren’t counting on my car breaking down - multiple times - and making as many stops as we actually had to. The whole scenario was nerve-wrecking, unfathomably cry-able and nothing less than magical. No tears were shed, despite the circumstances. With the volume turned up, a constant eye on the car’s thermometer and a backpack with the necessary equipment to stay the night comfortably we miraculously made it to San Pedro La Laguna. We weren’t even there for 24 hours. We didn’t sleep 8 hours. We woke up at 5:30 and waited for the sunrise… which definitely occurred, (in secret) I assume, because we never caught a glimpse of it. Was it worth it? It always is. I’m not too sure that paying the “mechanic” Q350 was really worth it though…
