The church II …

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…

Hallelujah….

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… 🤗📷🌞

shot -> edit -> art

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…

morning at Takumar….

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😁📷

BW day…

It rained today after the sweltering heat…which is the perfect time to hide in the darkroom and try to turn back time.

The church.

We have two churches here. I read about one of them decades ago that something strange happened once during a wedding ceremony. The article said that everyone in the church was convinced that a big storm had started outside. They were surprised to find that no one outside knew of any storm….When I tried to check with my parents and grandparents, no one knew this story. And I stopped thinking about it. It could just as well have been one church, or the other church, or neither….But I noticed something interesting on one of them yesterday. Unfortunately the light was on the other side and the photo would have been lousy… I’m sure I already know it was this church. I’ll try to find out at the rectory if they know anything more…Maybe this event is older than what was written in the article🤔

I hung …

… a small and empty wasp’s nest in the torso of the greenhouse on a web and tried to press the trigger the moment the weak wind stopped moving it. 35°C in the shade at our altitude of 600m seems to be taking a toll on me 🥳🤡📷

I spent three days…

… trying to lure sparrows to the spa. I poured water into the old dishes, prepared food for them and watched them frolic in the water. I could already see myself accepting the Pulitzer Prize for photography – Summer of the Sparrow. 😁📷Unfortunately, they probably came across some better attractions on the way to us, so I managed to take a picture of only one, who stopped for a tasting on the way to another place. Then, out of boredom, I poured water on the concrete block…

turn around please…

It was not possible to take many photos today in the continuing hot weather. Everyone and everything was hidden somewhere in the shadows, far from my lens…

the village: Central Station

Allow me to introduce you to our station. There used to be even a restaurant here, Yes, times change… Under the previous Minister of Transport and Industry, the reconstruction and repair of many railway stations began. The buildings have been demolished and in their place are uni cells. I often wonder if politicians have the right to denigrate the level of education. This former minister, as a servant of a communist whistleblower, is proof that a university education does not guarantee wisdom. The industry in our country looks like this station. This station can serve well only for photography. And only at night…

painted by the brain…

Our brain evaluates everything based on previous experiences. The eyes will give him some data and he will take care of the rest himself. That is why we experience, for example, déjà vu. In fact, we hardly read words letter by letter anymore. If you shuffle letters in the middle of a written word, the brain will eventually put this mixture together correctly very quickly. The brain is your only true friend… even if it sometimes doesn’t tell the truth😉😁📷 BauetifluTeusday for all🌞📷🧠

ten thousand years before the selfie….

well, it’s not that long. But technology has made incredible progress over the years. Still, I prefer a real photo over any selfie you take with almost anything. If you have a partner and a camera at home, let yourself be photographed. It’s like sex… it’s definitely better in twos 😉📷

Second attempt …

sometimes a not so good photo is the inspiration for a second attempt. If there is a strong wind, some of the analog camera’s capabilities are severely limited. So then I pick up my DSLR and try to make it better…
