I didn’t get to take pictures today. So at least a few pictures from the end of June🌞📷
Nikon D800 + MF Samyang 135 mm+ yellow filter and Pentacon Six + 80mm Biometar Zebra + yellow filter
…was a Nikon F50. I would prefer to take all the cameras with me so they don’t regret not being able to go with us.

If you shoot with analog cameras, it’s important to have some sort of archiving system. Black and white negatives for 35mm cameras I start with the number 35 and end with the year. Medium formats start with the number 66. If it is a color negative, the number code starts with the letter C. Since I sometimes color the photos, identification is then easier. Yes, they are almost the same shots as from a DSLR. But because I’m fool, I always try it with everything I have with me…😉🙃📷

There are still a few pictures left on the negatives, so I hope you don’t disdain a few pictures from the DSLR
Perfect Day – Lou Reed, Bono, Dr John, Elton John, D Bowie, Duran Duran, …..
A few more photos from Friday’s walk. I’m going to round off today’s perfect day (without sangria) with a few scrolls in my bag and a few cameras. Inspired by Lou Reed – Perfect day

I wish everyone a beautiful and spicy Sunday🌞🌮🌶 I swapped the darkroom for the kitchen today…

… the car is a bit drivable again. As soon as possible, I mounted, and after more than a month I rode from our valley to the hill. Naturally, I also took a camera with a 135mm damaged Takumar lens. I managed to exchange it on the Internet for an older problem-free 50mm lens. Some people may also find it strange why I replaced a problem-free lens with a damaged one (20 percent of the front lens area is chipped), I had a reason for that. I have a really large number of 50mm lenses at home, because the older cameras that I buy usually have just such a lens. A damaged front lens on a 135mm lens can add the maximum to the originality of a photo. Even such a large defect can only become apparent when taking photos in backlight.
P.S. The old red Jaguar XJ classic in the photos is not my car. Although I would like to be its owner 😁

Sometimes the differences between light and shadow are artistic in themselves and just need to be framed.

I’m already looking forward to going somewhere and being able to take pictures of something other than everything in our village…over and over 😁📷

Last week I wrote to you about one of our churches. There is also a stained glass window in one of the photos, which reminded me of the story about the storm and the wedding. I have never seen a stained glass window with a grid in the shape of lightning bolts before. So below I am adding some photos from yesterday’s early evening walk…

It finally stopped raining yesterday afternoon. Deciding whether to go take pictures or fix the car was short. I took three old cameras and Jared with my Nikon. I photographed three negatives in 40 minutes. Although there is not much to photograph… 🤗📷🌞
It’s still raining and in this weather I can’t get the car in condition to be on the road. So I’m still in the outhouse drinking coffee and feeding the sparrows😞 ⌛⏳ 🌧📷
Jack Sparrow in person 😁📷. Have You a beautiful and adventurous Saturday dears 🌞🌌🌊🏖🎈💝🌈🎼🕊☄⛵📷
A while ago I had to go and hide at home because of the afternoon rain. I selected one image from the previous negative and edited it in the LR editor after scanning. I really liked the circles created by the individual lens groups in the lens…

This morning, after a long time, I took photos with my old love Fujica ST901. In combination with the Takumar 1.8/55mm lens, this is still an incredibly high-quality device. I took a couple of pictures of a flowered lily against the sun (probably that’s why my eyesight is getting worse). To make the sun really round in the photo, I used an ND64 filter with the aperture wide open… Yes, I could have titled the post Morning with Takumar, but that way you might be thinking where the hell Takumar is😁📷

…I was finally able to start repairing the car. I ordered the necessary tools, a new windshield and turned the garden into a temporary car workshop. After removing the windshield, it started to rain. The bumblebees that made a nest under the old smokehouse disturbed me while I was working and posed on the blooms. I just had to pick up my camera…
It rained today after the sweltering heat…which is the perfect time to hide in the darkroom and try to turn back time.
