Situated south of the city center of Weimar and next to the Bauhaus University you can experience a very romantic cemetery from ancient times.

You can walk across the hillside and under trees. There is ivy on walls, trees and iron-laced fences. Especially during fall, when colored leaves cover the floor, it looks wonderful. When entering the entrance of the cemetery turn right and walk a few minutes up on the hill, because there are the most beautiful old and overgrown graves.

In addition famous German writers Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schiller were buried in the “Fürstengruft” which is situated in the center of the whole cemetery. Unfortunately you have to pay an entrance fee in order to get to the crypt.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Spirit of Jogja

    It is the marvel of Java, the cultural center of Indonesia: Yogyakarta, or, as we assimilated locals call it, Jogja! Jogja is full of historic sites and exudes a very adventurous yet welcoming spirit. It is a true multireligious melting pot that has seen kings and sultans come and go, and religions introduced and either went or stayed. Time has been gentle on Jogja. It's one of my most favorite cities in Asia.

    Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.

    Trusty Bags for Trusty Cameras

And yet, when the time comes to pack all this game—the new or thrillingly ancient cameras—we DIY padding on the spot. (Guilty of trying to avoid the unappealing gear bag from the department store.) Last year though we stocked up on camera bags that are as cool as they are protective. Here are some of them.
