2007 PAW 38

Filed under: Uncategorized — at 7:36 am

On Tuesday last week, Sept. 18, I was sitting on the train that had pulled into the station in Copenhagen. The train westward comes in early (it starts there) and I went on, put my bags overhead and started reading or staring out the window; I don’t remember.

People come and go as the train fills. There’s plenty of commotion. When I got off in Odense I discovered that my bag was gone. A sly “pick-pocket” had raked it off the shelf as we waited in Copenhagen. The train only stops once between Copenhagen in Odense, so it couldn’t have happened anywhere else.

I had a Leica CL, 40/2.0 Summicron, 90/2.8 Tele-Elmarit (Wetzlar, not Canada), Samsung Digital (compact) and the Domke briefcase alone was worth more than the Samsung. Clothes, receipts, … a general insult.

I was away from home (if I really have one) the rest of the week without a camera. Came back over the week-end and tried to get a decent PAW:

The following were taken with an old Rolleiflex:

I wasn’t sure if that one, the one above, was really taken in week 38; it was on the roll, but was in the beginning of the roll and might have been taken during week 37. So for the main, on my PAW page I chose the following one:

There is a little collection of others from the same rolls in the shoebox.

Pbase ( has a nice collection of PDF magazines.

I just read number 9 with, among other things, a helpful article on a photographer’s perspective on Linux

For the money, they can’t be beat: The magazines

#9 has a little write-up of Lightzone (not Lightroom, but Lightzone, freely available for Linux).

Gunn, Ewa’s mother, came over to eat a birthday meal together with Simon.

I’ve wanted a portrait of her for a while. I feel ok with this one.

Jean-Luc Ponty

Ewa and I went in to Liseberg to see the last concert of the jazz week, Jean-Luc Ponty.

It was raining, but once the band started up, you really didn’t notice that anymore.

Leica IIIf, 50/2.0 Summitar

I hadn’t really planned on taking pictures so I used what I almost always have with me anyway.
