This origami crane is ready to fly to Japan, to join a huge flock that's already on its way, to try and bring hope and comfort to all those who are suffering the consequences of the earthquake that struck the island on March 11th. The whole week I've had these people very present in my thoughts.
It is especially moving for us hobby photographers, because most of the stuff we use for our passion (cameras, lenses, films, ...) has been produced, designed, conceived or dreamed of in Japan. I wish for the best as my crane flaps her wings and takes off...

I guess you noticed that I have been quite inactive in Die Murmeltierjahre im Land des Frühschoppens for a while now.
The thing is that I have been quite busy lately. As I already told here, I reverted to using film with vintage cameras recently, and
obsessive passionate about my hobbies as I am, I discovered myself thinking a lot about film types, computing exposure, medium format, do-it-yourself film scanning, colour negatives transformation, and yet another vintage camera.
I have been using my flickr photostream to share my progress in my film adventures, but flickr is not really the right kind of platform for that matter. I realised I was having a lot to tell these days, but it was almost exclusively about photography. Since I did not want to transform Die Murmeltierjahre im Land des Frühschoppens in a photography blog, I did not post at all.
That's why I decided to start a new blog, a blog about photography. I am very happy to invite you to come over to my playground, a (photo) challenge a day ....
What will happen with Die Murmeltierjahre im Land des Frühschoppens? Don't worry, it won't be that easy to get rid of me and my paranoia ;) I plan to continue posting here, and I hope I can canalise better what I have to say depending on the topic. If I have something to say about photography, it will go to a (photo) challenge a day .... Everything else is going to be posted here, to Die Murmeltierjahre im Land des Frühschoppens. Random pictures will continue being posted here as well.
I'd be glad if you would come along with me. Thanks for being there! :)
