2008 PAW 4

At work there is an activity called “On the Fly”, where those who work there contribute every month and the employer more than matches with some funds. Each department then carries the responsibility to arrange something for the others.

The R&D section … is probably not the most exciting group. We don’t dance and came under fire for not arranging a good summer party with dance. So another department decided that we needed dance lessons, “linedance”.

Afterwards we all went out to eat at a place called “Carlslunds” in Odense. Their specialty is “egg cake”. It is basically an omelette, about an inch and a half thick, in a cast-iron skillet, covered with about 2 pounds (I am not exaggerating) of thickly sliced bacon and pork rinds.

But since most people who read this belong to the LUG (Leica Users Group), I’d better put up some photographs taken with a Leica this week (the previous two weren’t).

I spend a lot of my time at bus and train stops, like Lindome Station:

and, Korsvägen (Crossroads) in Gothenburg:

Those were both taken with an M3 that I am testing, an M3 and an old, silver Summicron (nice lens).

Besides those, I took some portraits of Ewa with a 35/2.5 Color-Skopar, an Industar-26 and an Industar-50, in that order. They were all taken with the lens wide-open onto Kodak Tmax400 developed in D76 1:1.

Leica IIIc, Industar-26

Leica IIIc, Industar-50 (more or less like an 50/3.5 Elmar, but a real Tessar instead of just being close).

Jag har och försöker att alltid göra en svensk version också. Det är nytt för i år.


  1. Nice eye. I enjoy your photographs.
    Check out I painted a Les Paul for charity. There were 15 ten-foot sculptures and 35 guitars donated by Gibson. I got to mess one up. Mine sold for $8500. Collectively we raised over $850,000 for 2 museums and 2 charities. It was great fun.
    Art has been taking more pictures lately.
    How are you? Is Kathy living in Austin?

  2. Grest lens! Russian Industar 26 or rigid Industar 50 are my favorite for b/w
