Everything from:Technology

Until 2005 I was stuck with Windows, until I finally gave Apple a chance and never looked back since.

iHnDustRy.

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. iHnDustRy., originally uploaded by Montrasio International. […]

Tianjin: Food Street.

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 Street., originally uploaded by Montrasio International. […]

Tianjin Business Trip.

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 – I guess him and me were the only foreigners on that train. We talked a bit about god and then world. And then, today, we met him by coincidence in Shanghai! Crazy. I mean, Shanghai is quite big, but you still run into people. That’s funny. I’m busy working on a new website for my media company, so I’ll leave you with these two Tianjin pictures for now. More next week. Have a nice weekend!

Come Back The Sun.

Song of the moment: Zucchero – Come Back The Sun. ‘Small town Romeo, kicking cans down the street Coca Cola van broke down in the heat The girls in colored dresses They seem to laugh as they run – yeah But they dream of only sweet caresses Come Back The Sun We will be like children Come Back The Sun Make us into children The black and white of summer, and the golden light The way we touched each other in the stolen night The voices whisper in darkness Dusty shoes on our feet, tender And on my way to tomorrow, I remember Come Back The Sun We will be like children Come Back The Sun Make us into children So you say that I’m dreaming Beauty is mine If I’m only dreaming, then its fine Riede Paichi (Laugh you sad clown) Bring back the sun in my life I need your love to be there Bring back the sun in my life Bring back the sun in my life I need your love to be there Bring back the sun in my life Well, you don’t care… Come Back The Sun We will be like children Come Back The […]

Lights. Taken with my new Tamron lens.

So, a 300mm lens is finally mine. Actually, it’s a 70mm – 300mm lens from Tamron. Now my Nikon D50 can take pictures of things faaar away! The lens was quite cheap, just a bit more than 1000 kuai is what I had to pay. I also bought an Kenko circular polar filter which gives me the ability to remove or enhance reflections and also influence the color of the sky. It’s awesome too and I can’t wait to try it out. The weather in Shanghai is getting better, meaning warmer, but these days it’s too cloudy or smoggy for serious photography – got to wait for now. More to come soon!

Roewe 750.

Every morning when traveling from Pudong to Puxi I see this car at the People Square, while changing from line 1 to 2. Clever to put it on display on a way to overcrowded subway! By the way, this is the first time I blogged to my blog here via flickr. Hope it works, alright! Roewe 750., originally uploaded by Montrasio International. […]

8GB iPhone in China much cheaper!

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 is available for 690 dollar and thus the 8 GB version dropped down to 530 dollars. That’s quite a jump for just three months. The iPhones I’m talking about are unlocked and running the newest version, 1.1.4 if I’m not mistaken. One of the sellers said though, that ‘within 6 months you will be able to buy legal iPhones from China Mobile’. I wonder if he is just kidding around or if he really has inside information. As far is I know, Apple is in negotiations with China Mobile but wants too much? Well, let’s see how things are in September 2008, when the 32 GB iPhone or even 64 GB iPhone is available… […]

iPhone Wallpaper: My Contribution.

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 an iPhone myself, I’ll probably make more. I can’t even test them… *cry* […]
