  • To Delete or Not to Delete

    To Delete or Not to Delete

    When a turning point comes in life, seasons are left behind and new ones begin. Photos outlast those transitions, but are always best to keep around in memorium? In our electronic age, even our film photos are posted as pixels and online images. Thus comes the question, "To Delete, or Not to Delete?"

    Somebody's Trash is Someone Else's Treasure: Analogue Cameras Retrieved from the Dumpster

    Listening to Garbage's album "Not Your Kind of People" and thinking about the meaning of their name (garbage is trash, but the band sounds great) I got myself remembering how many times someone threw away a camera (or any analogue device) believing it was trash at the same time that, for us, it's a treasure! Definitely, they are not our kind of people!

    Warsaw – a Past that is Not Forgettable and a Future that is on its Way

    One of the saddest chapters of the world’s history takes part in Poland. But Warsaw proves that no amount of immense sadness can last forever. Even if sometimes the atmosphere seems to grieve for the past, there is a silent feeling of constant victory. The country is being rebuilt on the path of happiness and the future seems bright there!

    Planes, Engineering, and Black and White Photography

    I found these pictures while I was looking for old cameras from my father's collection. My father was a great photographer, and back in the 70's, he was very active. Analog photography was very prevalent in his family. Today, he is retired, but his work was too great to remain in a box.

    My Childhood in Analogue: We Must Miss those Days!

    Missing childhood is the most common thinking among people, the thinking that brings backs memories that we were happy once. Maybe we can't recover those days, but I sure do know that I can recover my childhood analogue proofs. Back to the past!

    Stalin-Park Tirana

    Well, I thought Stalin is gone for good, but I found out that it's not the case in peculiar Albania. Behind the Academy of Fine Hearts, ...oops sorry, Fine Arts, he still lingers around and enjoys his dictator-pension ship. And I have to say, I am quite glad about it: Because, where can you see the grumpy Georgian nowadays? I mean, the impressive Mustache-Man died 1953 and still everyone talks about him and even more so countries follow his policies. As the Russians took over his birth town Gori in Georgia very recently, they just probably wanted to put some flowers to his feet. Because Gori is the only other place where Stalin is still hot, besides Tirana.
