but that is not what ships are built for. — John A. Shedd
Finally … June 14th I’m going to the Lake Garda. It will not be a holiday but more a trip but I’m already looking forward. A lot of water has gone under the bridge since I was on the Lake Garda and I strongly miss the Italian coffee. It’s still the best!
Lately, I have a little lack of motivation. So I had to try something new/old. After a long time I took in hands my old camera, which I received as a gift a few years ago, the Fujica ST705w and the classic Kodak bw400cn (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures). What a feeling when you smell a film and load it in the camera. Since you have only 36 shots, you’re thinking a little differently when and how you will press the shutter release button.
And then you waiting … you do not know what you’ve done, or the image is in focus, or the lighting is right. And finally you get a developed negative film… what a joy. I still remember how it used to be when you developed a negative film after traveling and then that waiting. Yes I’m old almost like my Fujica.
