    Analogue is in Vogue: The Rise of Film Photography

    Film photography has had quite a journey over the past decade. Only a few years ago people were hailing the death of film. "Digital is the future", people said. It certainly looked that way. But recently people are falling over themselves to replicate film photography. iPhone apps are mimicking lo-fi photography - Lomography is in vogue. I'm seeing more and more people with vintage and Lomography cameras slung over their shoulders in London's tourist hotspots.

    DMZ - the World's Hottest Border

    It is most likely the one border that is constantly in the focus of the world. The demarcation line between North and South Korea is always hot and edgy. You better hold your horses and don’t get silly, because the soldiers have their finger on the trigger. But beside from that, the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) in South Korea can also be considered as a political version of Disneyland.

    Spain-France: the Red Border

    A lot of people believe that living in a small place has no advantages. I am from Huesca, and even though I live in Zaragoza, I can't get my little city out of my head. And what do I do when I want to escape to the outskirts? I take the car and go to the border. That's the good side of living within spitting distance of the Pyrenees.

    Konstanz and Lake Constance

    For years I’ve been planning on visiting my friend in Konstanz for a sailing trip on Lake Constance (Bodensee). In August 2008 we both finally found the time to realize those plans. I took the train from Frankfurt to Konstanz, arriving on late Friday afternoon. But before we entered the boat on Saturday my friend showed me what Konstanz had to offer culturally.

  • Walking along the Var river, France

    Walking along the Var river, France

    Who doesn't like walking along a river? It's so peaceful and quiet to see the water, to hear the endless water stream going along his way to the sea... A river is always a place where you can think about a lot of tings, when you're alone or with the one you love, or your friends or anybody else. It can be a river in the city, opening a magic view to a far horizon, or it can be in the forest, in a wide open space... whatever, a river is always magic.
