La Palma Xmas Deco

I love these simple but beautiful light decorations! Tried to capture them passing by with our car. Xmas symbols with a summer feeling, yeah!


431 Lightyears From Home

La Palma …. 1000 m above sea level and above the clouds … it’s still 431 more lightyears to fly to Polaris, a yellow supergiant star shining with the luminosity of 2500 suns, known as the Northern Star.


Black Sand

La Palma … January … hot black lava sand … a swim in the Atlantic!



Hey hey!!! Wishing you all a joyful healthy sunny new year!!!


Xmas 2017

Happy Holiday to all who can … Here is the sea, here is the beach, here am I with a 60 years old Bolex double 8 camera, I am happy to have access to film material still being produced in the Czech Republic (Foma!) and being sold for a low price in Berlin. I have warm boots and friendly people who surround me and wish me well. I am old and still sizzling. I know what love is. Can I do something to push the magic pendulum direction better and caring and soft and powerful intelligence and … fuck off, greedy lowbrain moneyeaters! We’re gonna erase you.

3 Days 3 Nights Again

I set up my Illy coffee pinhole camera in my kitchen, a piece of photo paper inside, and let it peacefully expose. 3 days and 3 nights long. Capturing my wild untidy beloved kitchen!



3 Days 3 Nights

I set up my Illy coffee pinhole camera in my bedroom, a piece of photo paper inside, and let it peacefully expose. 3 days and 3 nights long. Capturing window, bed, curtain, books and my invisible sleep!


Friends In My Darkroom #4

Today: Helena, painter and writer! Welcome!


Double 8 Film Adventure

This camera is exactly 60 years old! It still works, it buzzes and purrs. We filmed land, soil, mud, me, puddles, reflections, double exposures, electricity poles … and a new film comes into my mind. Travelling through wormholes. Getting stuck in a universe. The film starts to live in my head, starting to evolve slowly. I love that!

After The Storm Children Play

We had a tremendous storm some days ago, one of a kind we never experienced before to that extent …
And now I see fallen trees and wigs and branches everywhere … like this one in my neighbourhood … serving as a children’s playground.
I think it’s philosophical.


Homo Hippie

Neandertals and Homo Sapiens are two fundamentally different types of human beings and have never intermingled.

That’s not true!

A few liked each other despite or because of their differences very much and had children.
But the insatiable, aggressive, and corpse-throwing homosapiens have triumphed, and the Neandertals perished.
Nevertheless, at least a few of us current people possess a few percent Neandertaler genes in us.

We should activate them as soon as possible.

Here’s the film!!!

Summer Is Over

I close the window to my balcony, I open a bottle of red wine, I sing to my flowers and I watch Yoko und Klaas in TV. And in the Werbepausen I edit my Ode To June #5 film! Cheers!
