Spring snaps

I have been reasonably productive, but I have not been adding things here. My photos go up in relevant contexts now-a-days instead of just a context of “me”.

The last couple of weeks are characterized by spring lighting.

Front yard

The light late at night, these were taken around 21:30, is something that has always fascinated me. It is fleeting … that could be it.

The week before I was in Lund for a conference in lexicography (Nordisk Förening för Lexikografi).

Lund 2

They were all taken with an older Rolleiflex MX (no baffles in the light chamber, Opton-Tessar).

I’ve worked at home all week. I’ve been away so much since the end of December that I really don’t even want to leave the house if I don’t have to, and I don’t. I haven’t even been bringing in the mail.

Now and then I turn around and look behind me …

Behind my desk

The window has offered some entertainment as the light comes back.

Window 2

Window 3

Next week looks like more of the same …

Courtex. He would have preferred the shot with his jacket on, but it turned out blurred. Slow shutter speed (1/10 wide-open).
