Paint it black…

How would this Rolling Stones song sound like a negative film? Would the song be optimistic? I think not…

Rolling Stones – Paint it Black

I see a red door 
And I want it painted black
No colors anymore
I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by
Dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head
Until my darkness goes
I see a line of cars
And they're all painted black
With flowers and my love
Both never to come back
I've seen people turn their heads
And quickly look away
Like a newborn baby
It just happens everyday
I look inside myself
And see my heart is black
I see my red door
I must have it painted black
Maybe then, I'll fade away
And not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up
When your whole world is black
No more will my green sea
Go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing
Happening to you
If I look hard enough
Into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me
Before the morning comes
I see a red door
And I want it painted black
No colors anymore
I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by
Dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head
Until my darkness goes
I wanna see it painted
Painted black
Black as night
Black as coal
I wanna see the sun
Blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted
Painted black, yeah

Wag the Dog

It was getting dark when the last Martin was flying overhead. Maybe a loner. I took a picture of her several times. Taking a picture of this living fighter aicraft with a manual lens to keep him at least a little focused will give you the job. Far less work can then merge the few photos in PS and create a whole formation of these little fighters. Then I exchanged the blue sky for an older image taken with a IR filter and definitely wag the dog.

for eternity…

A few days ago, I took a picture of a wolf poppy by the road. The same day, the city’s technical services began mowing the lawn. I decided to immortalize the wolf poppy flower in the studio. He left quietly …

sometimes …

the photo works and sometimes it fails. Today is one of those days when one should not leave the house. It’s cold and it’s raining a lot. As I get used to the intensity of the rain, the rain intensifies. So I quickly took a few remaining shots of the film and went to develope it. Even when pulling the film cassette out of the camera, I managed (thanks to the orthosis on my left hand) to somehow insert my finger through the lamellae of the camera shutter. One by one I pushed back there and it looks like everything is working as it should. After developing the film, I found out that a few images on the negative are scratched (probably due to the orthosis on the left hand again). I decided to correct one of these images in PS and I even colored him. This is not an art. I only regret any images that are unusable.
