VSCO Roundup #52 – June 2020

03.07.2020

First times since the beginning of Corona:
– eating in a restaurant (outdoors, because I wouldn’t dare sitting inside)
– going to a store that is not a supermarket (to buy sports pants – then realising pants are obviously not worn anymore)

First time ever:
– picking up my finisher shirt (in a stadium) from a series of running events in winter/spring, which was cancelled right before the last run

VSCO Roundup #51 – May 2020

20.06.2020

More walks. I think I’ve never walked as much as during Corona. People from outside the Ruhrgebiet won’t believe it, but there’s so much beautiful nature here. The photos in the second part of this post have been taken somewhere else, though. We went on a two day hiking trip in the Eifel, which we had booked long before Corona, and after all the time of not going anywhere it felt as good and relaxing as a one week vacation.

Lots of walks and a few bike rides. Seeing noone but the cats.

VSCO Roundup #49 – March 2020

04.06.2020

I am so behind on posting again, but finally here’s my VSCO Roundup from March. If I had posted this at the beginning of April, I probably would’ve written about what a strange month March was. And it sure was – but in retrospect it was just the beginning of the new normal. In the first days of March there was a Big Thief concert in Cologne and although Corona was already a thing and we thought it might not be the very best idea to attend the show, we still did and so did one thousand other people. Thinking about it now feels like it happened in a completely different time and world. I started working from home (which I still do) and taking walks during lunch break to see all those little masked ghosts who startet to appear on almost every wall in Dortmund.

VSCO Roundup #48 – February 2020

01.03.2020

There are hardly any photos from February. It’s always gray and dark and raining. Winter in Germany can be so annoying. So is the camera of my new phone. Actually it’s already a few months old, but I’m still angry at how bad the image quality is.

VSCO Roundup #47 – January 2020

03.02.2020

I didn’t do a single VSCO Roundup in 2019 (because I didn’t post anything on VSCO, either) and I was very unhappy with that. When I think about the past month it’s usually something like “There was work and … boring stuff … and riding delayed trains … and more work.” But when I look at the photos I am reminded that I did some really nice things, too. I really missed that the last year. So I want to get back to the routine of having a look at the good things. In January 2020 those were – among others – fluffy cats, long hikes and beautiful sunrises.

Edit: After I posted this I realised there were some more pictures from January … another hike and some gloomy shots in Dortmund.

VSCO Roundup #46 – December 2018

05.04.2019

In December there was a tiny little bit of snow for a few hours. I met a cat on the street and watched Fritzi watch out the window. We bought a Christmas tree (we did not cut it ourselves, though) and went to see an exhibition at NRW Forum in Düsseldorf: the elephant video is “Play Dead” by Douglas Gordon, the fantastic photo with legs and mirror is by someone else, whose name I’m unable to find out right now.

And here’s the rest from October, which isn’t much. But at least there’s Nino, looking wise and mysterious.

VSCO Roundup #44 .1 – October 2018 – Azores

15.03.2019

Get ready for a huuuuuuge post! In October we spent a week on São Miguel, the biggest island of the Azores, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. We were hoping for a relaxed holiday: a little hiking, a little hanging around the pool. As it turned out, we couldn’t even use the pool once because it was raining and storming so heavily most of the time. Instead we hiked a lot and got wet a lot and were happy about our backpacks’ raincovers and fast drying functional clothes a lot.

I also took tons of photos with my “real” camera, but as usual, I haven’t even looked through them yet. So let’s start with the VSCO pictures from that trip.
