Damiens birthday party..but in absence of him, brother Denjel steals the show. Of course he was not forgotten and couldn’t wait to build his own Lego Star Wars Watch. A few casual photographs, more on JUX.

182 Days in a foreign country, filled with foreign people, foreign food, foreign customs and foreign laws. Then again, everything feels so normal and similar. Nice people, great food, familiar customs and well.. the laws.. let’s not get too acquainted with those just yet. The evolution of aliensdontsleep is now in color, as a 1-pic-per-day series of life in Canada. Half a year in black and white, half a year in color. I don’t want to blink, because I don’t want it to be over. A new beginning, shot on old film. Some ‘highlights’ as the story develops..

Dear friends and followers,
After careful and long consideration I have decided to no longer host my ‘portfolio’ on WordPress. As much as I have loved this platform for showcasing my work, I have found that there are other alternatives which suit my needs better. Alternatives with less hassle and less configuration. Simple, beautiful and BIG. Over the next couple of weeks I’ll be migrating some of my photographs there, and will continue posting new work there as well. My blog page at WordPress however will stay intact, and I’ll keep posting and re-blogging stuff that interests me, as I have done to this date. New photographs I publish on JUX will also appear here, as blog posts.
Since I am now beta-testing for JUX, I’m intending to make better and much more frequent use of their fantastic platform. I’ve already had a few sites up at JUX, but now everything is moving there. So, if you like, do visit my sites there and keep up-to-date with whatever comes across my lens.
Many thanks for all your visits and comments, and hope to see you soon as a fellow JUXer! My sites at JUX are:
Titanium Mike (main, under Boris Bullski, and including ‘Pensieve’)
ALIENSDONTSLEEP (documenting life on film)
Cranberry Chutney (digital (composite) photographs of my new home)
A good article I just came across..must read for all you film lovers! Via FStoppers.com.
Our DSLRs have confused us. We obssess over the wrong things. Sharpness at 400%; bokeh characteristics of lenses produced from what-must-surely-be prancing magical unicorns; high burst speed frame rates that make cameras sound like gatling guns; 4k resolution to shoot better cat videos; 100 auto focus points that still won’t focus on what we need them to; and noise performance at 400,000 ISO. Absolutely none of these will make your photographs better. Shooting film will though, here’s why.
