A light leak

Light Leak
Light leaks are special to me and sometimes I think they make a photo even more perfect.

This time something went wrong with the film in my camera (the danger of shooting film I guess) and I had to already roll it up after only shooting half of it (which is annoying). However I am glad that at least a few photos made it and particularly those I took when I was at a little mountain hut with Matilda and friend and her daughter mid November.
It was snowy and just beautiful! This is where I took this photo.

Have a great start into the new year.

Lenbachhaus Museum Munich

Lenbachhaus Museum Munich

A quick snap for you of the Lenbachhaus which I took while I passed it with my bike later Summer, early Autumn.
Its a wonderful museum which I highly recommend seeing/visiting when you are in town. At the moment they have a great 'Blaue Reiter' exhibition on which we went to a few times already. But not only the art inside of the museum is worth a visit also the new look it got (by Norman Foster) a few years back looks really great.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone,

Autumn with Matilda

Autumn with Matilda
Autumn has been so beautiful here in Munich. There where the occasional wet and grey days which belong to me to the season like the colourful leaves on the trees but those sunny cold days are just magical. When the sun is standing low and throws the most wonderful shadows and when we go outside, wrapped up in our woolen clothes and wear the sun on our nose.

It was also nice as it was Matilda's first Autumn walking and she could explore all the leaves, chestnuts (oh chestnuts), stones at the river Isar and so much more. It is such a nice feeling when I think about that I show her some things for the very first time, like the feeling of a fresh chestnut in her hands and how soft it feels and how shiny it is or all the colourful leaves and how they fall off from the trees and how you can watch them dropping on a windy day.....It fascinates me all over again as well.

Berlin I

Berlin IBerlin IBerlin IBerlin IBerlin IBerlin IBerlin I

A few weeks back I had some work to do in Berlin and was able to extend the trip by a few more extra days. It was the first time for me traveling on my own in 18 months since Matilda was born.
I was super lucky and blessed with the best Autumn weather one could wish for. It was sunny and a bit crisp but not freezing and I loved the signs of the season, the changing colours of the leaves, the light, for still being able to sit outside having a coffee....I rented a bike for the weekend which was the best decision as I was able to move around so quickly.

Here are a few impressions of my days there ....

An Autumn day in Munich

Autumn in Munich Autumn in Munich Autumn in Munich Autumn in Munich

A few weeks back we went to a friends garden. They found the garden growing wildly in the middle of Munich after their owners were too old to take care of it. So these ladies took on the project and are taking care of this piece of land again and I can't wait to see how it will look like next year, they have already put in lots of time and I am sure once its Spring/Summer you will be able to see even more the result of all this hard work.

I have always been very fond of such places, like old gardens and could have taken a lot more photos as there were so many little corners and things to just have your eye stop and look a bit closer.

So here are a few for your eyes. .

Lake Starnberg

Starnberger SeeStarnberger See Starnberger SeeStarnberger SeeStarnberger See
We feel very lucky that there are so many nice lakes around Munich which you can reach within an hour or two.

So what felt to be the last warm weekend of Summer we drove out to Lake Starnberg and found a little place where we could hang out, look at the water, through stones (for Matilda) and eat some leftover rice salad from the day before.

I will share the recipe soon on our Mostly Saturday blog!

Thank you so much for all your comments on my last post. It is so nice that there are still a few people out there who are reading and following along :)

I was thinking that I should change my blog-reading behaviour and comment more aswell as it gives the writer some nice feedback, even though that I sometimes think, this is also a space nice for me to have and to remember some good moments I was happy to capture with my camera.

Sardinia - II

Sardinia Sardinia SardiniaSardinia

We went to Sardinia with friends and their little girl late August. Just a wonderful week of good food, lots of sun and wonderful beaches, so many great beaches.

We loved the warm sun on our skin and to just feel warm. It reminded us a lot to our time in Australia when we had warmer weather all your around. We could choose from so many great beaches everywhere it was sometimes not easy to decide where to go. The girls didn't mind at all, all they needed where their floaties and the water. I didn't know but many beaches are not sandy and rather stoney which made the water appear even more crystal clear and blue.
