Documentary Photographer, Rollerskater, Theatre Lover and Occasional Coder, that’s me.

I like motorbiking, origami, guitars, gigs and all those things feature here.

The image above is a particularly cool section of the Transfăgărășan, a frequently nasty mountain road that crosses Romania. The dot on the road in the far distance on the right, just past the bend, is my pal on his motorbike.

#CONTAX167MT: another camera restored to active duty using the simple tools of a penknife and a glass fibre pencil. I dumped a stack of films into @khrome_hamburg and they have a beautiful collection of film cameras which inspired me to get my rest and gear and either make this work or give up. Small, light, simple and all worth it to experience the beauty of Carl Zeiss lenses. #contax #yashica #carlzeiss #japan #filmphotography #analoguephotography #analogphotography #slr #167mt

#AUTUMN: #Hamburg is quite beautiful, instead of the many parks we have in London, the entire city is lined with trees. The parkland at #PlantenUnBlomen is particularly well-kept, the Japanese garden only augmenting it rather than being a highlight. The (largest in Germany) open-air ice rink should be coming soon, and then there’s a bit of a fight to turn it back into a giant #rollerskate park from April to September, as the new surface isn’t skate-friendly… #Germany #park #leicapower #summilux

#ORIGAMI: in my modest collection of Origami books that I’ve been gathering since I was seven, is this practical guide from 1980 which includes instructions for embroidering initials, making other table accessories with napkins, children’s party folds and a handy stain removal chart. If I want to learn something new, I have to find either a children’s book or an old one. #napkin #napkinfolding

#THEBEAUTIFULONES: little up-and-coming beat combo playing two sets in a little venue, new album does indeed sound good live, very good setlist, even sneaking He’s Dead in there… #suede #autofiction
