While digging through my archives I found these photos I took about two and a half years ago at my great uncle’s 90th birthday. I still like the series so I thought I’d put them up here. It was a lovely day with my extended family and some regional quirks.

IMG_1018blogYep, got caught.

IMG_1019blogMy great uncle is very fond of music and helped founding the first music school in the area. He also always was very involved in the local brass band. I don’t know about your area, but where I come from every village has their own brass band. So the local brass band dropped by for a birthday serenade. My great uncle discussing the set with the bandmaster.

IMG_1051blogMy great uncle believes in the importance of kids getting in contact with music, so he was very happy about all the kids in the brass band.

IMG_1060blogI’m repeating myself – brass bands!

Lovely memories of meeting my extended family. And wishing my great uncle many more happy years to come.

My Dad turned 65 this year in spring. He invited family and friends for a birthday/retirement party. There was music, food, wine, great people, a recital of some quite fruity Mozart letters and lots of laughter, but see for yourself.

I had hestitated to put the pictures up on here, as it’s all family and friends on the pictures – but then it isn’t any different from other entries with family and friends I’ve done before, and photography is always personal in one or another way… Plus I liked how the series turned out. So, enjoy!

Recently my brother and  were invited to a friend’s 30th birthday. I snapped a few pictures, and as I quite liked how they turned out I thought I’d share them here.

Candles looks so nice on film…


Make a wish!

Tired. Or lost in thoughts.

Football, boys & their toys

Been thinking about setting up my own blog for a while now, so here we go! Even though I’m not perfectly happy with everything yet I thought I’d share a few pictures from this weekend…

Usually I don’t like watching football, but as I was invited to a birthday party during the Champions League Finals and was promised some sausages and beer, I happily joined in and took some pictures. The guys were really absorbed in completing their Panini sticker albums for the FIFA World Cup.

Discussing the progress of the Cameroun album page…


Crossing out the stickers he had just put in his album… You gotta stay up-to-date!

Beer, sausages and TV

Game’s over…

Crips collection…
