Of all the things I know
I understand almost nothing

Schicki-Micki ? Ja gèrne!

Denn: lieber Lebensfreude ohne Nivo, als Niveau ohne Lebensfreude. Schicki-Micki ist coool!
Hat übrigens nichts mit dem heutigen Bild zu tun:

This is problematic 127 King's Royal (Gevaert?) in the Ferrania Ibis. Not 125 ASA anymore. As you see.

On December 30 Nijmegen also will be bitten by the Starbug.
After the Ukraine and Düsseldorf.
So yesterday I didn't only photograph the Weihnachtsmarkt, but also "my" Starbucks. On 1962 FP3 in the 1957 Colorsnap Bantam.

Weihnachtsmarkt! (1)

Sonne - von Karstadt bis zum Rathaus. Aber es duftet schon sehr weihnachtlich und der Mandelstollen von Polster schmeckt vorzüglich. Die 8 Aufnahmen 828 reichen absolut nicht, aber wir haben noch fünf Wochen.

It's not an event, it's a feeling.

With the 1950 Paxette.

OCEHb (5)

Cold, the fog is thick as rain, looks like that French movie "Un Flic" (Melville 1972).

Auf dem Fluss die Welt entdecken is no option, today.

Les Demoiselles

Late evening in rainy Florence.

(Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, Picasso 1907...)

OCEHb (4)

To celebrate, today (look below: November Spring), one of the first pictures I made, 1964 with my first Lubitel. Of course I still have one, и её люблю !

Three faces of autumn (OCEHb 3)

All with yellow filter on the 1977 Pentacon 50 mm.

OCEHb (2)

This year we had the mushrooms and the warm coats four months ago, and today sunny 14° but next week I'll be drinking Glühwein at the Weihnachtsmarkt.
Na zdorovjè!

Moon over Jena ;)

Well, my 1977 Pentacon can handle a lot, but the dead-straight contre-jour, produced by the moon in the middle was too much for this fine GDR aus Jena lens.

November Spring

No - not the weather, I'm talking The PEOPLE. Against, for, or in Russia.
Poland, the Eighteen Thirties, which produced some of Chopin's finest work.
And then the Russian October Revolution that in fact took place in November.
And of course 1989, the end of the GDR - and of great products like the "aus Jena" lenses, made by Zeiss workers. Who, in the sixties, were allowed to construct the remarkable Werra.
So I took my 1964 Werra 2E to commemorate all that.
