– Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I’m opening a photo show named “Desert Utopia” in my gallery NEO NOIR in Kiel this Friday, June 23.
– Yeah you are invited! Everybody is invited! Everybody will be there – there will be 20 people there!
– What are you saying? That’s bad timing because it’s in the middle of the Kiel Week, the world’s biggest sailing event?
– And that’s every year in Kiel?
– About sailing, huh? …wow.
– Well, how about a picture of a frickin sailing boat in the desert for a change?
– 7 pm.

Looks like I won’t be at Burning Man this year and explore Montenegro instead.

Dusty Tulips

“The Dusty Tulips”…is it just me or does it sound like a band name? Edit: these flowers are actually daffodils 😐

In case you wonder about the somewhat unusual aspect ratio of this image…I didn’t just crop it arbitrarily. I’m trying to mimic the look of what a medium format camera produces. Trying to figure out if it works with my kind of image compositions, as I’m currently thinking about leaving the 35 mm world and stepping up. I feel like I need a new impulse in photography. While in search of it, I found myself playing around with a few gadgets in the recent past, but I think to really get a good spark, I need a hardware that makes me re-discover things and maybe blows my mind a little with new possibilities it might offer.
So here we go, after faithfully sticking to my Canon 5D Mark II for five years, I’m now awaiting a Pentax 645z rental for the end of next week. I guess we will go for drinks, see if we have chemistry and take it from there. If that ride turns out interesting, I’ll write a little about it on here.

Anyway, didn’t mean to distract you from this impressive Burning Man artwork:
