Orenburg was founded in 1743 on the Siberian river Ural. The city played a role of a warrior who protected the south-western frontiers of the country. Historians say that Orenburg «was 3 times conceived and once born». It explains by the fact that the foundation of the city was several times postponed and shifted. Until it was finally founded on April, 1743.
Orenburg has a complicated history and played a broad spectrum of roles beginning from the role of a strong warrior, then being a great Russian merchant-city and one of the most important strategical objects. Then it became a prison, a city where political convicts were exiled to.
Nowadays Orenburg is a developing city and is very interesting for tourists not only because of ifs great number of museums and several theaters, but also because of its location. On the beautiful foot-bridge over the river Ural there is the symbolical sign of the border between Europe and Asia so you can literally be with your one foot stepped in Europe and another one stepped in Asia.

In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.
