Peperoni Timelapse

Colorful perfection

I love this vegetable, already the name(s) change wherever you go… Peperoni (CH), Paprika (DE), Bell Pepper (USA), Sweet Pepper (GB) or Capsicum (AUS) just to name a few. This one grew in my “garden” on the balcony. The color and shape couldn’t be more perfect 🙂

Although has been online for a while now, it was a little secret I kept from most people :). It’s a place where I uploaded some of my better pictures (I think). So if you are curious and got a minute, feel free to visit it.

Everything is a Remix

Everything is a Remix is a very well made and interesting series about taking the old and make something new, a.k.a remixing. The series concentrates  on music and Hollywood, but I think it applies to all areas of our lifes. Just think of fashion, graphic design, software to name a few. Basically anything that can […]

Photos from New Zealand trip now online

With a delay of about 2 months I finally uploaded all pictures from our trip to New Zealand. It was a very good trip to places I haven’t seen before.

The Crystal Cave

My roommate Jon just recently subscribed to the National Geographic Magazine. the first issue he got contained something that just made my jaw drop. Something I first didn’t believe that it’s true. It looked more like it has been done in Photoshop. It was the Crystal Cave in Mexico. Here a picture of this amazing […]

Yes, I’m still alive… no shark ate me. Sorry for the long waiting time with no posts, there are a lot of things going on right now, so be patient. Anyway, I wanted to share that I bought a new Canon EOS 40D to be able to learn more about photography and hopefully take a […]

First earth quake

Just had a nice shaker today. It was nothing bad, just a couple of seconds that made me think if my legs are getting weak. But after seeing the signs shaking in the super market I knew this would be my first earth quake that I felt since I moved here. It was a 5.6 […]
