Hamburg is mostly known for it’s active nightlife with St. Pauli and the Reeperbahn area where most young people spend their nights in clubs or bars.
But this area is aslo famous for it’s redlight district, which is not only active at night.
Anyways, during my one-day- trip with my Dad I decided to show him one of Germany’s most famous streets and I obviously had to take some pictures of my dad infront of all these “amusement shops” the Reeperbahn has to offer.
Since the first girls talk ( that officially got renamed to Habibis’ Talk) session has been over a month ago, we decided it’s soon time for the next one to happen.
So what is this all about?
Well, me and my friend G-laaf were actually looking for a chill group of girls to shoot with and then this whole thing turned into one “big” meeting of girls that just sit there talk, eat and take some pictures. We’re not “just talking”, we want to establish these meet-ups/talk sessions into something everyone is welcome to and can contribute to in every way. There are lots of topics that need to be talked about more often, topics that not only affect the society in general but specifically women and younger girls. We have taken it as our duty to talk about it and give everyone the opportunity to contribute to it.
In the end it’s all about us forming one big community in which every individual feels being listened to and maybe also like changing something.
This project is still at it’s very beginning and there are already a few things planned for the future, so don’t fear to be part of it.
Since I can’t really decide on how to start this post off right this time I’ll just skip the part where I talk about irrelevant things and stuff . ( 10/10 on actually writing blog posts and maintaining a blog)
All the following photos were taken on an (obviously) B&W film on my canon analog baby. And these pictures were also taken this summer were I used to spend a lot of time with these people and just chill and take pictures of them. And let me tell you that taking pictures of the people you just hang out with is great, there is no such thing as an awkward silence or an awkward atmosphere. ( These people really helped me out a lot with finishing my portfolio and at this point I just want to say thank you )
So wassup? I think it’s been a month since the last post, but I don’t even want to apologize. I obviously had some shit to do. For example writing this damn 20 page paper about psychotherapy and how it affects your brain. But since I’m done with it, the following image I recently found on tumblr describes my mood towards life now pretty much.
Like I already said I was shooting film this whole summer, and I even got two b&w films from my friend Davida (thank you) and did not miss the opportunity trying them (and I never say no when people tryna GIVE me film rolls bc shit is expensive as fuck).
This pretty boy is named Marco and is one of the cutest and kindest people I got to know. Really had fun shooting this beaut.
This was all I had to say. Thank you for reading and supporting.
Have a good evening.
No this is not a face tat, I just drew these tear drops on his face with a normal eyeliner pen.
He actually doesn’t even smoke but he did it for the pictures.
I don’t even know what happened here lol, I guess I fucked up the film.
So I thought of starting an archive series on my blog. Because I never happened to post them but I did’nt want all these hours of scanning pictures go to waste. So why not bring a bit nostalgic vibes on my blog ?
This is Daniela.
One day I was out with my sister and we saw her and I was like “Damn this girl is pretty and a perfect photo model *insert crying emoji* .” ( I was not literally crying but I felt like this emoji was impersonating me perfectly in this very situation).
And my sister was just like ” Go and ask her. ” I have to admit, I get a bit nervous when randomly talking to strangers but I still did it ( and now I feel no shame in doing this).
So I walked up to her, at the underground station, and just casually asked her if she would like me to take her pictures. She said yes.
This way I got to know a lot of interesting people and I am truly hapy for that now.
These pictures were taken on a KodakGold200 film back in August.
I’m still alive and back with them new new film shots. So as you can tell this really is my first all analogue post. I finally got to see and scan these pictures I took right before I left to visit my hometown (ofc I took some pics there too). And I still got a lot of analogue pictures from the time I was in Istanbul and Berlin I didn’t scan but since I got plenty of time on my hands right now, I know what I will be doing the next few weeks. Believe me this takes a lot of time but whilst you are scanning and analysing pictures you’ll forget about the time and suddenly it’s 4 AM and you catch yourself waking up from falling asleep infront of the open refrigerator next to your mom asking herself what she might did wrong.
I got to chill with the OG GANG and took some pictures of them casually strolling around in their neighborhood. They are all really cool people to hang out and shoot some good pictures with. Everyone of them is an individual and most of them are friends since like forever becaus they grew up together in this neighborhood. So the location was more meaningful this time I guess. I was really happy to shoot such authentic and cool people that just be themselves and chill in their hood, that create and stay together.
So stay true to your block and support some “real mothefuckin’ OGs”.
So as you may tell I’m back from Istanbul, a few pounds heavier, but I’m here again and who tf actually cares bout weight ( the people weighing your baggage at the airport do lol ).
Anyways I had a great time being there and was shooting film the whole time to capture the real feeling and atmosphere of the city, I just hope they turn out well. So stay tuned for the analogue madness ( I’m still working on the name ).
This skatepark is like one of the best locations I’ve ever came a cross. And I am slowly running out of good locatins so that was also a reason for me to pull up to the same spot again ( for the third time now ). This was a YOUNG PICASSOS x MOUBSEN session. Sadly the trio wasn’t there shooting together, it was just Kc and me. But we still managed to get some nice shots, even though the weather wasn’t playing along as usual.
We planned doing this session with Moubsen, the infamous munich streetstyle blogger, for a long time actually. But everytime you plan on doing something and already have some specific visions in your head it never turns out the way you expected it to be. But this is what it’s all about – the moment. Making the best out of your surroundings while using every bit of the moment you are given. ( I hope this don’t sound too corny lol).
Anyways I hope you enjoyed the post and the now following pictures.
In case Lil Fuego didn’t tell you privately, contrary to her promise of always keeping you up to date when she begged you to subscribe to her then (before the advent of Big Gelato) miserable blog, I’m gonna take over this blog for a week which will probably extend it’s life for another six months and make it resistant to all the lil fuego posts to come. My goal is to make about 3-4 posts. One about music, one about deep shit, one probably about some less deep shit and one about Qatar cause I be’s there now.
So I’m listening to Quasimoto and sitting in Qatar right now and wondering what I tell you youngens about today. Hm….. I just graduated high school (unofficially but fuck my prom/graduation ceremony (they had to put the two together cause they broke (which then again is because they suck at life))) and as you may or may not expect I’m all like FUCK EVERYBODY, NO MORE HOMEWORK ALTHOUGH I NEVER DONE IT ANYWAYS, I’M FREE, LIFE BEGINS NOOOOW. On the other hand though the way you conduct your social life might totally change for people whose social life was widely based on classmates and school in general. Now for me personally whenever I compile one of my dope ass outfits in the morning I won’t be thinking about how I will school these motherf***ers today (double entendre) or how I will impress my ex in math classes (of course not with my miserable math skills) and guess what, I kind of miss that. Like shit, this is some tradition you know ? Back in first grade when you got (or didn’t) them flashing shoes, made you feel like you had a cop car on your feet (cause that’s what cops are, under your feetACAB) like them original lil ones not the new ones for teenagers cause those are just embarrassing, and you’d be like “Imma walk in that class and show ALL of these guys whose got the most apple juice”. But for real for real ? This is all just something that comes down to the way you conduct your personal life and self essentially. So if you just reach the consciousness of self respect and not doing everything for the omnious “others” then the end of school is just a wonderful chance for you to FINALLY start designing the life you want to have for the next chapter “FULL TIME DRUG DEALING IS ON MA MAN”. You can decide wether or not you want to throw yourself into another commitment like university right away or if you wanna go travel the world, start a blog and become better than Lil Fuego (easy) or me (impossible), kickstart some new hobbies or interests, maybe even start making some serious mullah.
As a final word I wanna get serious and say that most of the stuff you want to do and people wanna give you hassle about, most of that stuff is fairly possible and achievable. Even traveling the world without having rich parents. Research it. The most important thing for you to do if you are taking a year off after skool is GET ORGANIZED. Watch seminars on how to get organized, how to manage money, write down your goals and dreams and learn to manage your time, remember education is not academic education but self education. Gettin an A+ don’t make you educated, it makes you hard working but not educated. If you want success in life or if you are trying to achieve something unusual e.g. your twisted dreams you must be willing to risk shit and go against everyone, get hurt, cry and bleed. So this was the first of a few Big Gelato posts, stay posted and enjoy.
