The Turkish Riviera via Instagram

I grew up the middle of nowhere with a 20 kilometer distance to the next (terrible) small town coffee shop and almost no public transportation, especially not after 7pm. That little village lies next to a lake and is surrounded by soft hills and lush forests, but all I could ever dream about was the […]

Photo Essay: The Best of September 2015

September started like every month should start: In white hotel linen and a salty breeze from the Mediterranean pouring in through the open balcony doors, softly moving the light curtains. Starting the month on a high note though, always means there’s the potential for disappointment. Overall, September was not a bad month, not at all, but going back to […]

On Three Years of Blogging

I remember when I was younger, I kept stumbling across phrases like “once you’re in your late twenties, you’ll be less insecure” all over the place. I don’t like clichés like that, but these days I feel like it’s actually true: With age comes confidence. A few years ago, I was constantly thinking about what […]

Photo Essay: The Best of August 2015

Paris in August via Instagram

There was a time when I was really into writing Instagram photo blog posts, but I haven’t been doing a lot of them lately as I felt like my images were becoming too repetitive — even though I’m still old-fashioned and take photos with both my dSLR (for the blog) and my phone (for Instagram) […]

London Stories in Black and White

I have always loved photography. My parents gave me my first little camera for my 12th birthday and I was so excited that I even told all my teachers about it. Very soon after that birthday, we spent a week in a cabin in the Jura mountains in Switzerland where I took photos of horses […]

Photo Essay: The Best of July 2015

As the amount of blog posts I managed to finish in July already implies: It was a very busy month. (In my defense though: Composing that huge Jordan photo essay took me about three weeks, so I hope you’ll forgive me that it was otherwise a bit too quiet over here). There was a crazy […]
