To be or not to be…

To be, or not to be, that is the question….
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them: to die, to sleep
No more…

Even a beginner mushroom picker can think in this way. To eat the mushroom or not to eat it. In this case it is the species Calvatia gigantea. Sometimes they grow in our garden and of course end up in the kitchen as a steak. It’s a delicacy. Unlike truffles, this mushroom can be eaten to your heart’s content. If the inside of the mushroom is white, I definitely recommend it to diversify the menu 🙂🙃📷🍽

here in Eden…

here, in Eden, summer is slowly coming to an end. There won’t be any more hay this year, and lambs in thicker sweaters are running across the sky. An apples are ripening in the garden and Eve is still jealous of Lilith…🙂🙃📷

it was november 1982…

And one negative film left the production line, which arrived at my home after forty years. I got it at a auction for about two bucks. He waited a week for a sunny day in the camera. Such old negatives are suitable to be used either with a flash or on sunny days.The result exceeded my expectations. A friendly couple of adventurers allowed me to photograph them and their horses. I was a little worried that this 40’s old negative film would disappoint and embarrass me. Neither the film nor my old Fujica failed. It was a chance encounter and I only had a 135mm lens(yes, the Takumar with the destroyed front lens) with me. In the second camera I had a color Fujifilm C200. Although again I am comparing the incomparable, the winner is clear. 40 year old film.
