The RUSSIAN PLANES series was shot in May 2012. I was traveling with my wife through the Balkan in this great painted campervan called DUTCHY. We drove trough 10+ countries and 9700 km in 4 weeks. A fantastic trip.
Leaving Budapest that day the rain was pouring down. After a very wet stop at the Mento Park the equipment was soaked and so was I. Luckily we had a 4 hour drive to this place so things were starting to dry up a bit and even the sun started to smile. The area is is public place so no hassle to get in. Unpacked the camera and started shooting with the already attached wonderful and cheap 50mm lens. No worries here. Things started to change when I pulled out the mighty 14-24mm and the sun came out. All of a sudden my viewfinder was like a white piece of paper and completely fogged caused by all the moisture from that morning that started to vaporize . Well that's what I thought anyway and took some more shot of those lovely planes. When I switched lenses again I noticed that the moisture was not in the viewfinder but on the lens itself and on the mirror inside the camera. Left it to dry for a couple of minutes and had to do the whole thing over again. It was a fun shoot and a fantastic and special place. Have to go back sometime to see if can do some interior shots.
