Childhood summer 2

I cannot have enough of this. Silence, sun, the perfume of grass, rubbish all over the place: heaven.

The subject, the contrast, the (not) sharpness - this picture oozes childhood summer to me. Nice. Little problem: why is this afternoon-Efke R100 so different from the one I used this morning. (Right>)
Same Rodinal, same 1930 Ensign 29, same blue sky.

# House for sale

I went to see the spring (at last) with the 1984 Canon Reflex 8/500 but then there was this empty house (being renovated?), the morning light on that lonely vase. A 500mm mirror with yellow 3 in it is not the best lens for this subject. It had a hard life: 15 years in the chlorine-vapour (you should see my EL/M!) are clearly visible.
On RolleiRetro nòt 400: no more pictures at all on this film - but I didn't care: the weather was glorious.

Rain in Delft

Very beautiful, very (touristic) Dutch; where you can still buy film, or analogue Leicas at Talens, Markt 36! Or have a chat with the friendly ducks (they speak English and even some Japanese, wòw!)
