Interesting; if you look at the thumbnail on a tiny screen, you can get the distinct idea that you are actually looking at a fashion shot of a woman wearing a fur coat.

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.

Didn't you believe in ghosts?

Seeing as I do often photograph people (though very seldom post those pics online) here's one: Yehezkel (see previous post), some time in 1984, conducting one of his semi-impromptu discussion sessions on whatever was on his mind that afternoon. Taken on Ektachrome 200, which has held up very well over time.

"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 a terrific book, The Lemon Tree, centered on the house she grew up in and the people who had previously lived there.

I visited camp Dachau once. Interestingly enough that day the camp was occupied by refugees. No, I'm not kidding. They had decided to open the gates only 10 minutes each hour, the remaining 50 minutes the gates were locked. It was a beautiful, sunny day and apart from the horrid history the camp is actually like a well kept commemoration park. So by the time we were ready to leave, the gates were still closed and we sat on the grass to wait for the 10 minute window.

There was a weird sense of irony in watching some of the tourists protesting to the refugees and fulminating about their right to leave.

Not to mention the method of weedcontrol. I kid you not, think about this sentence for a bit:
In camp Dachau, gaspowered burners were the preferred method of weedcontrol...

It's a wonderful waterfall, Armand. Less snowy than when I was there.

I've never been to Dachau but I know a man who survived it. Still sharp at age 89! Juli (my girlfriend at the time) and I visited Westerbork in spring 1985 on our journey from the Middle East back to her home in Heidelberg.

After days of rain & gloom the sun reappeared this morning. As did the usual refuse on my lawn.  :)  Pic via a 1937 Zeiss Jena 85/2 Sonnar. Uncoated, nickel-plated brass construction, silky smooth operation.

I admit I fail to see it.

It's good that you recognize it, they all look the same to me  ;D
While I got some snow in the Reykjavik area in the southern part, Vik to Glacier lagoon, there wasn't much as it rained quite a lot.

She's standing there, body facing a bit to the left, her head at the top of the falls, her hands in her pockets, as the fur coat falls right down to the bottom of the picture. The lapels of the coat are close together as her arms and hands hug the coat close. If it helps, the shot would have been made with a wide-angle lens and from about knee height.

I can't stop seeing it!

I made you a copy just now, with the shape outlined in black, but my PS tells me it's the wrong kind of file and so I don't know how to post it, so I dumped it.

On my thumbnail, she's a midget!

As suggested, she's more visible in a minor key.

Apologies, but it's too cold to go outside and take some decent shots.

Yesterday's high temperature was 62 F. This is the view from my driveway ~1 hour ago.
