Hi to all journal readers,

-Been a while since the last Journal, been to France for a long weekend visiting Caro’s brother where we haven’t been for over 5 years.

-Next weekend is Castlefest, hope will have some more energy then.

Blessed be and greetz len.


Quotes of the week are Random:

People who ask our advice almost never take it. Yet we should never refuse to give it, upon request, for it often helps us to see our own way more clearly.

Brendan Francis

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.

Bertrand Russell
British author, mathematician, & philosopher (1872 - 1970)

It is the duty of every citizen according to his best capacities to give validity to his convictions in political affairs.

Albert Einstein, 'Treasury for the Free World,' 1946
US (German-born) physicist (1879 - 1955)

It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.

Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere's Fan, 1892, Act I
Irish dramatist, novelist, & poet (1854 - 1900)

I've arrived at this outermost edge of my life by my own actions. Where I am is thoroughly unacceptable. Therefore, I must stop doing what I've been doing.

Alice Koller, An Unknown Woman, 1982

Started with photography at the age of 9 with a Zeiss Ikon 6 x 6, later in adult live switched to Leica IIIf , M3 and SL.

About 5 years ago started with digital photography using a Lumix LX2, then an Olympus E600 and now a Canon 60D and mainly using Manual Focus lenses from a forgotten Era, mainly Leica

Personal Quote:

"The outcome of the Photograph depends largely, on the chosen subject and how it was taken, the camera itself is just a medium to register your idea's about the subject"

greetz Len.
