Taken while driving from Wuxi to Shanghai in January 2008. We were a lot on the road shooting John Rabe. I’m trying out various HDR things for a project at the moment. The HDR pictures I’ve been posting over the last couple of days on flickr are more or less the results of these experiments. […]
Until 2005 I was stuck with Windows, until I finally gave Apple a chance and never looked back since.
This is a picture of the commercially… err culturally famous "Food Street" in Tianjin. The food is good, alright, but they sold me fake cigarettes there. And the restaurant owner was not able to offer us a fapiao. Watch out there. I had the feeling that it’s a bit of a tourist trap… Tianjin: Food […]
Jiajia and I have been in Tianjin on a business trip. Tianjin is about one hour away from Beijing and has not that much too see. Well, it’s a business city like Shanghai. When we drove back to Shanghai in a sleeping train, we met a foreigner from Canada in the cabinet next to us […]

Quite a surprise, the price of the 8 gigabyte model of Apple’s iPhone dropped a whopping 125 dollars since the last time we asked! Back in December we were running around in that big electronics store at the Hong Kong plaza and back then the price was almost 650 dollars. Now the 16 GB version […]
I took personal favorites out of my 200 most popular flickr pictures and converted them into the iPhone accepted wallpaper size of 320 to 480 pixels. Feel free to modify them or whatever, they are all with a creative commons license. Enjoy these free iPhone wallpapers: That’s it for now. If I can ever afford […]
I tweaked around the blog some more and decided to add a nice text-shadow to the headlines. If you’re using a 3rd-world browser, you probably wont see it though, it’s a Safari only supported CSS thing. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve been using FireFox myself for quite some years, hell, we even organized a […]
Josef Lee’s biblical story featuring Adam, Eve and Steve is hilarious, well designed and simply genius. Look at it now!
