Under Hamburg’s heavens Just to prove I’m still alive. The struggle continues: Here the lens of the Rollei 35, which I always carry around in my pocket for opportunities like this, has a hard time with the stray light. Instant Aura, eh?

Thank you for your kind words, and for this very first comment here ever. Right now I’m not working on any specific topic, so I just collect snapshots on the street to not get rusty/hone my technique. I havn’t read Sontag yet (or maybe I have, or that might have been Barthes…), but this winter might be a good time to read some theory again.
Enjoying your work and detailed description of the process. Particularly the cloudy skies of Hamburg. A tremendous aura indeed!
Have you ever read Susan Sontag’s ‘On Photography’? A good day to you and a couple of quotes you might enjoy too.
“Be still with yourself until the object of your attention affirms your presence.” -Minor White
“What makes photography a strange invention is that its primary raw materials are light and time.” -John Berger
