Gustav’s revenge

Gustav, in his mid-90’s now, inherited some land together with his brother. The whole business was not to Gustav’s liking, I forget the details, but his brother got the section up on the hill and Gustav got the section going down to the lake. From the hill there was a beautiful view of the lake.

Gustav’s brother sold off some of his, not to Gustav’s liking either, and city folks built their summer cottages there, with a beautiful view of the lake.

Gustav took revenge. He planted these trees on the border of his land and his brother’s:

Just to give you and idea of how the view should have looked, this is it from Gustav’s:

Don’t mess with Gustav.

Ewa and I heard this story when we went out picking mushrooms together with Monika. She’s Gustav’s neighbor.

Just some snaps from the day (it was dark and raining):

Ewa made a mushroom pie when we got home:

On my way home from Odense I passed through Copenhagen and met up with a LUGer, Mads. There has been a discussion of Konica Hexars and lenses on the list and Mads just happened to have one with him. For comparison, the first shot is with a 35/2.0 Summicron (don’t look for differences, you won’t really find any):

The next was with a 35/2.0 Hexanon (Leica screwmount):

He also had a 90 mm with him and these two were taken with it, wide-open at close range:

There are more from the week in the shoebox.
