uuh,the antisemitic irony!


a bit distasteful,I know.

Shot two rolls with the bronica last night.They are drying in the shower as we speak.

It is a great camera to use on a tripod.
We'll see how well it works handheld(and in color) pretty soon.

first bronica pics

The scans are crap,I didnt close the tank prroperly and the pictures are boring - this is just the test roll.


agitated date(1 sec exposure) 50/3.5PS stopped down to mid apperture


After the hun marauders 150/4PS wide open handheld at 1/60 or 1/125
These two I shot in a cafe during lunch with a friend.


Twigs 50/3.5 PS wide open against the sun


Das Boot is one of the greatest movies EVER.

you call this a dog?


A bunch of Arab teenagers sculpted things in the sand on Jaffa beach,when they saw us uproach with cameras and asked to take a picture of their masterpieces.
I asked this fella to pose with his pet.

"What a cool sheep" I said.
"It's a dog" he answered with insult.

I got the M4 back from Youxin Ye today. I will not load film until I pass the near exam.

I'd like to be,under the sea

Ceasarea



אנשי הצפרדע, אנשי הדממה
הרעש עושה לנו חור באוזניים
אם אנו שומעים בסביבה מהומה
אנחנו יורדים אל מתחת למים
ותיכף קופצים לנמל הקרוב
אפילו אם הוא במקרה במצרים.

The Nurse


Ashdod

The nurse should not be the one who puts salt in your wounds
But it's always with trust that the poison is fed with a spoon
When you're helpless with no one to turn to alone in your room
You would swear that the one who would care for you never would leave
She promised and said, "you will always be safe here with me"
But promises open the door to be broken to me
The White Stripes

Shosha by Bashevis Singer is a good book ,but it doesn't bring joy.
Babel turned out to be much better then I expected.

My leica m4 is all nice and working now.

tiny little feet appreciation




"Из-за того же упрямства он не стал смотреть на других, а опустил свои длинные ресницы и уставился в пол. А там было много ног. Много больших, неуклюжих ног. Хоботку ни одна нога не понравилась. Он взглянул на свои ноги. Они были маленькие и хорошенькие. Хоботок тихо порадовался: как хорошо, что именно ему достались такие маленькие ножки! Что бы он стал делать с такими огромными ножищами, как у других. Он бы вообще побоялся из дому выходить. Он бы со стыда спрятался под кровать и не вылезал бы оттуда."

"Хоботок по прозвищу Слоняйка"

Young Nature Lover



finished reading "The Kite Runner" which is a load of populistic crap and " As a Few Days"
(also called The Four Meals and The Loves of Judith) by Shalev which is much better.
Meir Shalev repeats himself.
