I’ve had trouble liking my photography since about a year back. I did a wedding. I did it for money. I lost the spark.

One way I’ve had success in the past, when I’ve been in a rut, is to fool myself into taking pictures. I tell myself I’m not really doing anything important, I’m just testing. Just testing a camera, a lens, a film, a developer. Just testing. Just testing things I’ve used for years and years and just using routines I’ve always had, but I’m just testing.


Just testing a IIIg, 90/4 Elmar, Fomapan 400 and D76. Most important, I was testing to see if I could make Ewa smile.

Lübeck, on a Friday morning.

For the most part of the morning, the fog hadn’t lifted:

Lübeck 2

It causes the kind of chill that penetrates to your bones.

There are some more in the shoebox and a page before and after that link.

Winter is coming. The days are dark and wet.

There is little too little of the pleasant nordic light.

I’ve learned that I want to have pictures of my cats. You never know.


I’ve been sitting at home and working all week. Doesn’t get real exciting.

All with a Leica IIIg and a 50 or 90 Elmar.
