After purchasing my first smartphone summer 2011 (second hand Nexus One) I've taken an increasing amount of visual memories - mostly in passing and in a hurry without a tripod. In February 2013 a friend of mine lent me a Pentax K100, which I try to practice with. In January 2014 I changed my mobile for a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, in August 2014 I bought a 2nd hand NEX-6.
There seems to be more than just the weight of the gear and technical issues at hand that hinder me: adopting the identity of a "real" shooter instead of a "mere" androidographer.
From January 2013 I've revived again my interest in music and started to build playlists in YouTube.
