Dummy no. five

Here it wasn't the display dummy but rather the TV screen in the shop window that caught my attention, but the photo fits into this small series anyway.  Oslo again, February 13, 2010.

The M7 with the 35mm Nokton, Tri-X in Rodinal.


Dummy #4

A display dummy on the street in Berlin. March 3, 2010.

The M7 with the 35mm Summicron, Tri-X in Rodinal.


Dummies in Oslo

I decided to do a "theme week" starting today. The next days will all be about display dummies and we'll start with this one from Oslo, taken on February 13, 2010.

The M7 with the 35mm Nokton, Tri-X in Rodinal.


A gap

I couldn't resist to post yet another one from Coney Island. I liked the light on that day.



This is how you are (sometimes) greeted when you're entering Oslo's airport Gardermoen.

Taken on February 17, 2010 with the M7 and the 35mm Nokton. Film was Neopan 400 developed in Rodinal.


Jogging trail

Again a part of NYC seen through a fence. This time it's Central Park and the photo (shot in 1998) somehow reminds of the Marathon Man.

The M4-P on Tri-X. (Incidentally, this is the 100th Tri-X photo in this blog.)


Fake bricks

It's blurred, it has too much digital noise, the colors are off - and I like it nevertheless. With hindsight, I think it captures exactly what I "saw" when I took the shot.

A narrow side street in Asakusa, Tokyo on November 9, 2008. Taken with the Ricoh.



The home of an old man in Volda. What caught my eye was the picture of the angel next to the family photos. I think what's captured here and how it was done is somehow transporting this pretty new photo (October 21, 2009) back in time as if itself had been taken decades ago. (And we once again have a song title.)

The 35 RD (it kind of fits that this camera is even older than my M4-P) on XP2.



A window reflection again, playing with a person seemingly walking on a neon line.

Taken on February 6 this year, when Hamburg was still covered with snow. M7, 35mm Summicron, Tri-X, HC-110.


Acute angles

Near Berlin's Potsdamer Platz on March 3, 2010.

The M7 with the 35mm Summicron, Tri-X in Rodinal.



Again the title of a song - although "13" certainly has other meanings as well.

Shot in Hamar in the dusk of November 17, 2009 with the M4-P on XP2.


The door to the river

The river is the Spree and this was near Berlin's government district.

Taken on a cloudy day (March 3, 2010) with the M7 and the 35mm Summicron. Tri-X in Rodinal.



Or rather Picasso's castle in Vauvenargues. At that time (July 11, 1995), the castle wasn't yet open to the public, so everything you could see was behind fences.

FM2, 50mm, Tri-X, HC-110.



Overhead contact lines near Hamar's railway station, to be exact. And a bird - which made the shot for me.

February 13, 2010, M7, 35mm Nokton, Tri-X, Rodinal.

I'll be out of town again for a couple of days (and I'll hopefully take a bunch of photos while I'm away), so no new entries for about a week.


On the phone

In London's Chinatown on March 25, 1996.

The M4-P with the 35mm Summicron, Tri-X in Rodinal.



Sometimes you're waiting for someone to walk through your frame, sometimes it just happens. Here, I tried to shoot the shop window in the background when the man walked by. I instinctively pressed the shutter when I saw him. When he was gone, I took the photo I originally wanted to take, but now I like this one better.

February 2010 in Hamburg with the M7 and Tri-X developed in Rodinal.


Boy meets horse

March 1995 in or near Hanover. The Nikon with Delta 400 in ID-11.


Jacket no. 2

From the dark and mysterious department - a view into the window of a garage in Hamar on November 17, 2009.

M4-P, 50mm Summicron, XP2.


Beach volleyball

Another one from Coney Island. Same day, same camera, same film.


Lake or desert?

Lake Mjøsa again. On February 14, 2010 it was completely frozen and covered with snow. There was no way to figure out you were walking on water unless you knew.

The M7 with Neopan 400 (yes) in Rodinal. The lens was a Voigtländer 35mm/1.4 Nokton which I bought last year on a whim because it is so cheap compared to a Leica lens. But although it's a fine lens I rarely use it, so for my recent stay in Norway I decided to take it with me as my only lens.
