I love farmers markets and farmers shops. Last Saturday I was at the Saturday market in Oerlikon with some friends. I was allowed to join their Saturday ritual of going to the market and have a coffee and Quinoa Müesli afterwards.
I used to put my old camera in every bag or backpack and carry it around without protection. But with a new camera I thought I need to be a bit careful at least in the beginning. I found this handmade leather bag from tox leather. They are produced eco friendly and everything is handmade.
The bag was a bit larger than I expected. But this gives me some space for an additional lens or my lunch.
A while ago one of my best friends decided to move into a palace. It’s a beautiful old stone brick house in the middle of the city. Last time I saw it, it was still empty, because she had just moved in. But not this time!
She has a room only for her plants. The walls of the dining room are painted cornflower blue. And she has a sofa from Ikea’s grandmother collection. But the toilet was the most awesome I have ever seen.
Is there still untouched nature? Close to where you live?
The closest place I can think of is the Eigental. A couple of years ago the municipalities and conservationists argued about a road going trough a nature reserve. The road needed mending and the conservationists demanded tunnels below the road for the amphibians. But nobody wanted to pay and nothing happened. Ever since the road has been closed and no one is allowed to drive there.
Today, I wanted to check out this „untouched“ nature and walked through the snow. I met pretty sights, but not as untouched as I hoped.
For some years now I have spent my New Year in the cinema in Freienstein. We show a movie, the movie finishes before midnight and then we celebrate with a glass of champagne. Very simple, but I like it.
I’ve been carving stamps for the last couple of days. I’m selling my stamps on a small Christmas market in Freienstein (Switzerland), two weeks from now. Come an have a look if you are close by. Good food, nice people and lot’s of beautiful gifts.
Bergen Kaffebreneriet has started to produce their own chocolate. They have three types, named after the country the cacao beans are from. Kongo is a classic chocolate, with cacao beans from Virunga National Parc, where the endangered gorillas live. Den Dominikanske Republiken is made from fair trade cacao and contains fruits. Madagaskar tasts of citrus fruit and has been given away already.
