Actually the photos of this post lay about 1 year behind. I took them in December 2015/January 2016. It was a nice start into 2016. I finally fullfilled a dream and bought a Leica M6.

On my first walk with my new camera in Düsseldorf. Actually the Leica feels more like a working tool than a usual camera. If you ever tried to drive a nail into a wall - with a stone, and then someone gave you a real good hammer, you know what i'm talking about.

On our flight to Carcassone/France. 1 year before, I had to explain Antoine the correct chess rules. He made insane efforts. I think I lost that day. Must have been the flight radiation or something...

First time travelling to Japan. Totally underrated as a travel destination. If you really want to feel like an alien in a different world, don't go to New York - go to Japan! I guess Sting hasn't been there before, when he wrote his song.

Before going to Japan i thought people here in Europe are really addicted to smartphones - obviously we are true noobs in that discipline.
