Welcome to my new website / blog! There is still a lot of work to be done, but the pictures from Portugal are a nice occasion to make it public – even if most is still under construction.

Portugal was a little test vacation with our daughter, and she turned out to be a very enjoyable travel companion. Mum and Dad love to travel, and she seems to enjoy it just the same. We booked a beautiful resort at the Algarve. A very beautiful place, very friendly staff and a wonderful location halfway between Faro and the most amazing Atlantic coast. The only thing that turned out to be annoying is that all the fine-dining restaurants of the resort forbid children under a certain age – something I have never encountered before and very annoying! Everything else was perfect – even lucky with the rental car for a change, we booked a Polo and got a Mercedes A Class – normally I get punished with a Fiat 😛

My favourite place was definitely the Atlantic coast, and many pictures you see below were taken there, the remaining ones at the hotel, and its beach. During previous travels I was shooting a mix of film, digital, go-pro and a drone. This time I decided to shoot nothing but film, one camera, one lens – and I don’t regret it at all: less is more! Everything here is shot with Contax 645 and the 2/80mm, Kodak Portra 400, 160 and Tmax 400. All colour images are beautifully processed and scanned by Carmencita Film Lab .

Hope you like it – more posts coming soon!
