Borovets and the Rila Mountains

2

Its no Alps but its still good. In town with the party with great food and drinks can be.

I went to Borovets for work and I really enjoyed it. Its not too high up so the slopes aren’t as amazing as other places. Having said that it is a great place to bring young kids and learners. It has a selection of slopes for novices and experts totaling about 40km. This is being expanded to about 90km by 2012 which is cool. The scenery is beautiful. Pine covered mountains, snow peaks with relics of communist Bulgaria scattered throughout.

In the town of Borovets you will find friendly people always ready to party, good food and great drinks. All for very affordable prices. I will be going back there definitely.

    Nature & Culinary Delights With The New Petzval Lens and Feldküche

    Feldküche is a group that organizes dinner parties with a difference by cooking wonderful meals for groups throughout the Austrian countryside. This summer, we gave them a New Petzval lens to use in capturing their wonderful gatherings of people, food, drink and nature. We then got the opportunity to chat with Martin Fetz who runs the organization about what they do and their experiences shooting with the Petzval.

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.
