Emily gets lovelier day by day! Now she started to have imaginary phone talks with her toy phone. It cracks me up. Re-exploring our world and seeing us through her eyes is so cute and funny!

The Panasonic Lumix LX5 is a fantastic camera. Some weekend ago I tested the macro function and forgot to post it. Here it is. The Leica f/2.0 lens does a fantastic job with the depth of field blur and the colors look fantastic. I edited this with Lightroom 3 afterwards. Really happy with the camera so far, it’s small and super usable.
This is the sky today.
The Social Memories of Jakob Montrasio.
Today my “Social Memories” book arrived. It’s a new book service that DHL offers. The Facebook application diggs thru your Facebook account and creates a book based on a timeframe that you can edit and ships it to you.
Or should I say fake beach? First, Jiajia could us a delicious chinese lunch with seven different dishes, then we walked it off by going to the “Big Beach” at the Bismarckbrücke nearby. Was such a beautiful day today, not a cloud in the sky, 100% summer. Fantastic!
Got a new Hipstamatic lens: The Ben Watts lens. Looks cool, will play around with it more on the weekend.
Quick recommendation of a little jewel: Tucker & Dale vs Evil is a fantastic and super funny horror comedy. My wife and I are big horror movie fans so we enjoyed the hell out of this one. It’s a great spoof / twist on the typical “college kids go camping” setup that so many horror films have. I give it 8 out of 10, highly recommended. Check out the trailer:
The poor girl hit her head twice in the last days, and has a small fever since the last two days. She never cries hard, only wakes up at night screaming, but then she calms down quickly once she knows we are there for her. We also got a place for her in a pre-kindergarten club from June on, so her mother can finally work a bit, too. We’re really lucky, usually you have to wait for 6-12 months to get a place, but we’ll have to wait for only two.
