My dear forest, ….

In the first place of my letter, I would like to thank you for your hospitality and wonderful relaxation. I am sending the promised photos. I will definitely be dropping by again soon. Sincerely forever Mic…..

the bw red rose…

The two pot positions allowed me to have two backgrounds. Juniper and the sky… Even though I’m using film with quite a bit of grain, I think it came out nicely…

behind the fence…

Anything can be behind the fence. A treasure, a wreck, a flower… Sometimes we can find ourselves behind the fence too. Only we decide which side of the fence we stand on… Have You a wonderful day on the right side dears🌞📷🙃🙂

dramatization of non-dramatic things…

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 😁📷

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… 🤗📷🌞

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🤔

a few more …

… usable pictures from Monday’s walk. In the old sand pit, I was particularly interested in the structure of charred or thrown wooden logs in the hearth. My attempts to photograph a few butterflies failed miserably. The butterfly always flew away before I focused 📷🙂

switch …

Apparently, the seemingly endless series of storms where the sweltering heat was punctuated by bullets of ice had finally stopped. On many roofs, their owners are still working with the fire brigade, and the sound of glass shards and the sound of hammers can be heard in the surroundings. It seems that in order for our village to come to life a little, must a superstorm will come.

being too useful…

… is not an ideal situation. If you are too useful, you will be portioned and consumed. In the end, you may be left with only photos …. It’s good to be reasonably helpful … to learn to say no. Adequately.

there was once a clothes peg….

that met the other clothes peg at one party. They spent all their time together. All days and nights. Till the end…

once upon a time in the ….

…East a butterfly flew to a flower near the track.

next to the road …

sometimes I try to keep the MF telephoto lens in my hand, at a shutter speed shorter than the focal length of the lens, so that the images are not blurred. At the smallest possible depth of field, it’s a lottery. Out of 37 pictures, two were unusable … which I consider a great score 😁📷
