Not Drawn

Another shot from my early morning commute. Every now and again I see a black and white photo that looks like it could have been drawn by some artist. Just simple lines on paper. When I got home and saw this shot on a large display I got the that feeling that it had been drawn by my camera. The magic ends when I tell you that it is the remains of an old dock in the local river taken early one foggy morning. So just imagine I painted it instead.

Doing the Twist

One of my fav shots from last summers lockdown summer holiday. It’s an art gallery not far from my home. I had to photoshop out the crowds and a large crane over the trees but overall not a bad result.

Borgund Stavkyrkje

As I promised last week I’m going to try and post one shot a week to re-start my blog.

I took this shot during our brief summer holiday last year The wood to build this church was first felled in the winter of 1180 the building began in 1183. Of the approx 1000 churches built there are 28 left Borgund is the one that is least altered.

Another shot I took while walking around the harbour in Hals. The light and dark tones were what first attracted me to this still life shot.

The contrast between the packing case and the rest of the scene makes the shot for me.

Victor takes a break…

a well earned one. Since I purchased my Leica M9P last summer that is the camera that has been getting all my attention. Not that I wanted it that way it has just became my go camera . However. Very time I open the freezer at home I have to move a large amount of film around to get to other things. I just can’t let it all just sit there.  With that in mind I was invited to Denmark for a weekend party. So I decided to take my Hasselblad and one lens and two film backs. In addition I took my M9P and one lens too. But didn’t take it on the day I wanted to go the the harbour in the local town. I wanted to use my Hasselblad. Anything else would have been a distraction. In the short time I had I shot 4 rolls of T-max (three 400asa and one 100 asa). In the middle I went to the pub or Kro as they say in Denmark. This is todays picture . However there will be more to follow.

I’ve been away for a little while and I am a little busy at present. This means I haven’t posted to my blog so much. However here’s a shot to enjoy from the National Railway Museum in York .

Oswald

I met Oswald when in the UK recently. He saw me taking shots on the market and came over to chat. His wonderful Caribbean accent fascinated me. He like myself had also lived the Southampton in the 70’s and 80’s so we had a great chat about what it was like then. At the end he graciously allowed me to take a couple of pictures of him. A wonderful meeting.
