    Voigtländer V200: Attention, Please!

    Color negative film often doesn’t appeal to me. There seem to be endless variation and colours are not as reliable as slide film, and cross processing it is basically not an option. But it is the variety, that makes analogue photography ever exciting and the Voigtländer V200 is a choice that catches more of my attention lately!

    The Seaweed Farms of Jambiani

    Bright violent sunlight streams from a nearly cloudless, blue sky striking the soft wet sands of the early morning Swahili Coast. Wooden dhows rest motionlessly atop of tiny pools waiting for the ocean's water to roll back in, waiting to bob and weave while in pursuit of fish with their fishermen friends again. Cloaked in vibrant khanga cloth, the women of the village move away from their jagged coral, shell, and concrete constructed abodes.

Welcome to the start of my adventure in Senegal.

    Tipaza (or Tipasa) is one of the highlights of any trip to Algeria. Most travelers head straightaway south, to the Sahara, but Northern Algeria has loads to offer and Tipaza is an absolute must. Au printemps, Tipasa est habitée par les dieux et les dieux parlent dans le soleil et l'odeur des absinthes... (Albert Camus - Noces à Tipasa)
