This little dog is always the subject of my photos. Yes it's true. When I have a new camera I go: "Hello, doooooggy" - snap. Or I want to finish the film. Or I started a new roll. Or he is being cute - any one of these situations always fit.
His name is Josh. He is an 1 1/2 year old kaninchen (means rabbit) dachshund, a real small dog and so lovely. His whole body wiggles if he is happy. He has seen all of my Lomographic arms. He silently and patiently endures my exercises and tests and inspires me.

In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.

Jungle, home, haven. The same words may apply to both city and nature. Though different they are linked. The city takes after the colors of flowers and animals; people mold their neighborhoods after the shapes of nature. Other similarities are accidental: the fun bit.
