A trip to Tuscany or how I fell in love with Bistecca alla fiorentina

Not a single day of rain during our easter-trip to Montepulciano. How lucky. Each day better weather, better food and even better sceneries. Squeezed into a tiny BMW 116i with a little Thule box on the roof, my brothers from Berlin as well as my daughter started the trip from Germany. We drove through France and Switzerland and made our first stop at the lake of Como. Thanks to the beats of Coldplay, Jamiroquai and soft West- and Eastcoast beats, it was a fun ride all the time. A stupid traffic jam at the Gotthard tunnel stole us over two hours, but my grandmother made such an delicious dish with eggplant and melted cheese that we quickly forgot about it. Even Emily enjoyed the veggies, which are usually disgusting to her. After enjoying the epic view oft he Como lake during sun rise the next day, we hit the road again, driving south, to meet up with our sister in Parma, for lunch.

It’s Always Sunny With Emily

Emily… My little girl. Growing so fast. You got into first grade three weeks ago! I knew this day was coming. Started recording the fun times we had exactly a year ago. All the fun times we had together, leading up to your first school year. In Italy, Germany, in summer, in winter. We love swimming, we love the snow. With family, with friends, or just the two of us. Thank you for all the sunshine, my love. To the next six years! Background for It’s Always Sunny With Emily Emily started going to chool this year, and I wanted to create a snapshot of her last year in freedom in form of a video. So I started shooting all the fun activities we had and edited them into this time capsule motion document that you can see here. I may be going a bit over the top here, but school does change everything and takes her from childhood via teenage into adulthood. Things will never be the same again. I love my daughter and wish her the best life she can have. We went to the Alps, Livigno, where Emily had her first and second ski lessons. She got really […]

645 PRO Image quality.

645 PRO has been designed, from the ground up, for professional and serious amateur photographers. So it works the way a camera works, not some piece of computer software. Every setting is managed directly from the camera—no layers of menus to negotiate. You have instant access to everything that can be controlled, from focus/exposure and white balance locking to a 645 PRO-exclusive choice between spot and multi-zone metering. And you have all the information you need, all the time, including a real-time ISO and shutter-speed reading and even a live histogram! (Almost) no compression 645 PRO is the first and only iPhone camera app to give you lossless “developed RAW”—dRAW—TIFF files*, a workflow essential for many professionals. Its HI-quality JPEGs, too, are of a quality typically associated with higher-end digital cameras, with the option to save MAX-quality JPEGs with no visible compression artefacts at all. The JPEGs are enhanced by 645 PRO’s seven gorgeous Film Modes, inspired by classic film stock as used by top photographers from the 1960s through to the present day. You’ll get photographs from your iPhone like you never imagined! Get the app thru iTunes in the Apple app store, here. Related Images:We cannot display this […]
