The Kurische Nehrung. One of the proper places I've seen in the last time. It is a 70 km long peninsula which is completely locked off from the European continent and only connected to the Russian exclave Kaliningrad, accessable by a ferry from Lithuania. You walk through the forest and dunes, arrive at the beach and look to the left and right and see nothing but untouched sand to the horizon. No people, no shops, no cars, no hotels and bullshit, only us and the waves.
All Lithuania pictures were taken with a Contax T2. If you feel stuck and your life doesn't make sense anymore, get one of them and get happy again. I found her for 600 Euros on ebay. In comparison: Usually the pictures on this blog are taken with some super cheap cameras, mostly from ebay, some of them costed just around 4 Eurocks... I researched the Contax for a long time and thought it was really good and made the decision to buy it. The seller was in the same city, so I offered him to pick her up personally. We liked each other and so he gave it to me in the end for 560 Euros, a small bargain.
All this happend last summer, around December I crashed her on some GDR concrete in Mitte and destroyed the upper part of the body completely. Big respect to Tom Palluch: He had one deffective in it's shelf too, gave it to me, I took some parts from his cam and managed to make one working Contax T2 out of two broken. Now rolling again with her. The story of my Contax Terminator 2.
