Flachsee in December
Sunday, December 11, we went to Flachsee again. Last time I was here was before the pandemic and my retina loosened itself during the walk around the lake, so I had not the fondest of memories. But this day, it was magical. Beautiful light, lot’s of birds (a flock of at least 60 geese and […]
Windows… the end…
I swear, this is the last time. The last time I come home, turn on the machine and it does not work. The last time I am spending hours trying to figure out “what changed since yesterday”. This time, System Restore.. failed Trying to recover from ActiveBackup (Synology) failed, because to create a restore disk […]
Greifensee in September
I took my new 800mm lens out to Greifensee this morning. I am very pleased with the intial results. The lens is very light (for this kind of lens, still hurts after 30min holding it straight up :)) and incredible sharp.

I ordered a little tool, something that can easily tighten and loosen all the things i need on a tripod/camera setup. It came today. Of course in carton, and inside there was the obligatory carton of the company making the tool. In that carton was this: And when you open the inside box, you find […]
Donald is teaching history
Today, Donald is teaching us about American history. He is complaining about the 1619 project (which won a Pulitzer), calling it left-wing propaganda. Trump said children should know â€œthey are citizens of the most exceptional nation in the history of the worldâ€.â€ I can understand that you want to paint your own country in the […]
