Die Schwärmer

Last Thursday up and coming author Willi Hetze presented his debut novel “Die Schwärmer” in Dresden. Moderated by Andrea O’Brien and Katharina Salomo he took the audience on a captivating journey into the dystopian narrative of his new book that is set in a not too distant (and perhaps not too unlikely) future.

For the German followers among you, you can buy Hetze’s “Die Schwärmer” at Amazon or in a bookstore of your choice :).

Klangteppich

“Klangteppich” is a local band from Dresden which happened to have a gig at the same TV show where writer Willi Hetze was interviewed. So I took the occasion and tried capturing some of their performance as well. It’s a pity that I couldn’t capture the music though :).

A Night at the Opera

Believe it or not, I own my Leica M Monochrom for over a year now, and I have never before tried a night-shot with it. This is my first attempt.
