Last week my sister opened her own hairdressers salon. I was not the official photographer, but nonetheless I took my cameras with me and snapped a few pictures, as it was a quite special moment for all of us – for my sister as the salon was the result of hard work and dedication in the last few years, and for me as I was so proud of her and what she has achieved.

Started with some digital pictures… The salon was prepared for the party.

Last finishing touches.

My sister being a bit nervous just shortly before the first people arrived.

First people already here, my mum talking to a friend of her.

A pink buddha for good spirits in the shop.

My sister’s boyfriend calling attention for the speech.


…and applause.

Cute expressions!

Youngest visitor! Isn’t she cute?!

Booking dates for a new haircut. Never forget about the business, even on a party!


Was not really in the mood for my Canon, so I switched to rangefinder and film. Messed up the exposure a little bit (plus my laptop is on the verge of dying – means it developed a life on it’s own and changes the brightness of the screen, which I can’t do anymore – even harder to tell how the negative scans look on screens), but still some nice pictures in the end. Ilford Delta 3200. My brother and my sister posing for me.

More conversations.

Spotted the photographer!

Family affairs.

Calling a taxi.

Money, money, money!

So if you ever happen to be in the west of Austria and you are in need of a haircut, look out for my sister’s salon (“Perfect Hair & Make-up”).

Wiener Festwochen

Just got two rolls of film developed, so here are a few pictures I took during the opening of the Wiener Festwochen. Used Ilford Delta 3200 for the first time, and I have to say I really like how it came out. Nice grain!

This guy had brought his own chair with him.

She looked so thoughtful…

Little guy for sure saw more of the whole thing than me!

His gaze amazed me.

My favourite picture… Don’t know why, but I really like it.

Some weirdness going on with my lens…



All picures taken with my Kiev 4 rangefinder. Lovely camera, my Russian lady!

Wonder which picture you like best…
