More larking about in my front yard, this time in 3:2 color with the A7rii and a Zeiss 85/4 Triotar. The lens is the 1950s coated & recomputed version. Both it and its pre-WWII fraternal twin are reputed to be soft-ish, but I haven't found that to be true. Both versions are, however, flare prone. In fact there's a touch of blue ghosting in this pic, in the shadows near the top left corner. (It's more visible in the straight RAW conversion.) The paramedic truck is a distraction but it gives you a more complete look at the camera/lens combo's color response.

Not from this morning, when I supplied the 43rd to Erik K in another thread about sexual politics. (Can one write that today?)

Metal bridge, from 1905, recently restored. Used to bridge a train-track which has been dismantled during the late 70s. The tracÚ is still open and visible though as a hiking and biking route, and on some parts the tracks are even in place. It's interesting since I had seen tracks on several occasions and wondered about the backgroundstory. Just recently found out about the bridge and curiosity getting the better of me I went to have a look. I can feel a project emerging from the deepest cellars of my mind...

It's dark admittedly, but I like the dark, moody, wintery feel of it. Seems appropriate for this type of history.

Dark indeed, and makes me think of WW2.

Yes, that's a cool picture.

The spamfilters over here seem to be more effective though...

Yes, and the location graphics are better, too!

Pause to catch my breath during postprandial exercise tribulations. At least there was no postprandial hypotension that sometimes bites my ass!

Ah Eric, I have to admit the exercise was really a screen for another mermaid hunt. Guess it was just too cold for 'em to risk breaking surface. Maybe I'll find one (probaby stuffed) in a window back in the old town.

As it feels so damned cold these days, perhaps I should really be in Amsterdam where the windows may be more rewarding.

This is not the correct atmosphere and I would like to shift the vantagepoint slightly, but it serves to illustrate that hints of the rails from the track mentioned earlier still exist in certain locations. Here they are part of a road. This is the location where I first became aware of its existence and wondered whether there was some larger significance to it. The first thing that came to mind is that it may have been in use as one of the routes from camp Westerbork.

Which perhaps explains why I'm seeking a dark, moody, wintery rendition. The WW2 reference mentioned by Rob then seemed quite appropriate to me.

"Experience Of The Dachau Camp" by a Mr. Apelbaum. (Can't make out his first name.) This was on display at an exhibit in Jerusalem my then girlfriend & I attended with our friends Yehezkel and Dalia Landau in late 1984.

Dalia later wrote *inspired a terrific book, The Lemon Tree, centered on the house she grew up in and the people who had previously lived there.

-Dave-

*Defective memory on my part. The Lemon Tree was written by Sandy Tolan, but the initial spark for the book was an article written by Dalia and published in The Jerusalem Post in 1988.
