K&F Concept Pro Lens Mount Adapter for Canon FD, FL Lens to Canon EOS Camera

No comments
I used a film camera during my travels. Last summer I bought a Canon DSLR (EOS 100D) and then noticed that my old lenses did not fit. I bought a Sigma zoom lens, which I like a lot, but was missing my old 28mm manual prime lens (and filters) and the different approach one has to taking pictures with it.

So I got a lens adapter and was not disappointed. Here is a picture I made as a test:

It focuses to infinity and has a good sharpness. The only thing to remember when using the adapter is to turn it to "close", other wise it won't be possible to set the aperture and light seeks in creating a soft focus and glow effect. Which can be used creatively, of course :)

Germany part three: All of the Milchers

No comments
The actual purpose of my trip to Germany was a family reunion organized by my father for his 70s birthday. It was very relaxed, except for the UNO game in the evening.

UNO games with my family is a tradition and can get intense:

I won and my brother almost cried. It was fun.

Germany part two: visiting an English Krabat

No comments
Krabat is a Wendish Folktale about an apprentice in a mill which is a secret black magic school. It was also one of my favourite books when I was a kid.
Therefore I was very exited when a friend from Iceland moved to an abandoned water mill in the middle of nowhere in Germany. It helps that I have a soft spot for abandoned buildings in general.
The mill is awesome, the surrounding woods are full of old oak tress and there are cute little piggies. If my friend is becoming an evil black sorcerer he is hiding it very well.

Germany part one: Sun, flowers and ice cream

No comments
My first stop in Germany was Bremen where I visited a friend I have not seen since 2014 for two days.
I spent them in a state of flowers and sun induced bliss.

The main activities were dancing, playing dodge ball in the park with a group of refugees, sun bathing and ice cream eating.

I decided that sitting in an ice cream café eating sundaes is one of the few parts of German culture, which needs to be shared and cherished.
