Grainy Days is the personal photoblog of Ralph von der Heyden. All of the pictures here were taken with an analog camera. You can learn more in the About section. Enjoy!


So, this is my photoblog. Glad you found it. It's called Grainy Days, because I usually take my photos with analog cameras on film, causing grain in the images. More of my photos can be found on flickr.


I also Twitter and have a website, which is mostly about writing software. If you want to contact me, just write a mail to ralph at
