1936 JUNE 16



Today "our" bridge celebrates it's 75th birthday and for me there's a story to it. Of course the official opening had to be tested, by a lieutenant in a car. And as he was my mother's (then) boyfriend, she became the first woman to drive over the new bridge. Whoa!

Of course I took this picture with the 1936 KW Pilot6, on 1960 Ansco, 1/25 sec F7,7 (you can see the back paper etc.) More info about this film on flickr.

Small pic: at 6 secs all traffic disappears, but the back paper fog becomes very visible. (see comment)

the Photographer


"Our" bridge is 75 this year, so I'll have to come back with the 1936 Pilot, some day.

Just to see if I still can handle it, today the Praktica LTL3, 28mm Albinar + Yellow, RolleiRetro in Rodinal.

PS "Bridge?" Well he was taking some pictures of it...

COMPOSITIONS IN B&W. (and red)



In the spring/summertime I'm more the birdwatcher than the light-addict. Sorry! But I do not forget my black&white roots. Never. So here is a (rather desperate, poor thing) oystercatcher in black and white. And some red. In an also b&w&r asphalt desert where some time ago his home was...
And the Common Tern, elegant as ever, also in b&w&r.
