Ever been to a Stratovulcano? No? You don’t even know what it is? Common! Stay with me and climb onto one of the madest glaciers of Iceland.
Iceland is great, Iceland is crazy and Iceland is cold. Sometimes you start mixing all these characteristics. Like me. I went there in Oktober and all I brought with me was a lousy pair of chucks. Just think about it. I brought long underwear but sneakers with holes and made from cloth as thick as a sock. All the same I went to the Glacier Snæfellsjökul, which is two hours drive from north-west of Reykjavik on the peninsula Snæfellsnes. I didn´t feel the temperature, because my feet were numb anyway, as well as my mind when I captured the ridiculous sight.
There was no snow at that time on the island, but as we went up the hill our car was stopped by heaps of wet snow. We climbed afar and in silence like eremites. You pretty much got the feeling for a rock, which is inhabited by brave vikings. Cool people call the mountain Snæfell, and doesn´t it go easy from the lips? And this miraculous place is in the center of one of favorite novels and films of all times. Jules Verne made the Snæfellsjökul the entrance for his heroes in “the journey to the center of the world”! Maybe you still find the hole?
Have you ever imagined what it feels like to shoot with a 100-year-old camera? In the past four months, I have been shooting hundreds of photos with a Contessa Nettel Tessco. I don't know when was the last time its previous owner shot pictures with it. Perhaps 20 to 30 years ago?
At face value, it seems like no one could ever go wrong with taking a landscape photograph. Anyone can do it, so long as the subject is visible. But how do you rise above the mediocrity that plagues landscape photography?
Colors mean differently for all walks of life. The color Scarlet is no mere orange-red hybrid hue; it's a passionate, haphazardous one. Lomography tries to understand the meaning of each complex color found in the gradient and what it means for most of us.
Street photography is one of the most popular genres today, and it can all be repetitive. It doesn't have to be.

For vintage portraitists, no one can ever go wrong with Edward Curtis, the American photographer, and ethnologist whose coverage of the American West and Native American peoples continue to be one of the most significant works and oeuvre of an artist in American history.
One of the most important and most talked about photographic equipment today is the camera lens. There's a variety of it. But have you ever tried going lens-less, the way photography was before? The good old days of pinhole photography.
Autumn leaves and flowers design the surroundings as the cold gets nearer. It's a different world to see everything that was once lush green, turn to its contrasting reds and oranges. Enjoy the short autumn days and long cold nights with this Monday Moodboard.
