Week 43: mountains and home

Filed under: — Administrator @ 21:19

It is a truly mixed bag this week. Not only is there a variety of subjects, but I also used all my equipment.

Main
On the last full day of my sister’s visit, we drove inland to have a look at the mountains:
A114677

Besides my Olympus E3, I also took the Bronica 645 with me, loaded with a roll of Fuji Neopan 400 film. This was only my fifth roll of film this year. The next three pictures are from that roll.

Our backyard faces a golf course, inhabited by a family of swans. Sometimes they come very close to our back fence:
A194895

Very close indeed:
A194900

Alternate 9
Near my office there is a ruin that once housed a bar or night club:

Not much action there these days:
A194905

Alternate 11
Some homeless people have taken up residence, as evidenced by the makeshift curtain:
A194907

Alternate 12
In the same area, a sign of the times. Everyone is taling about “la crisis”:
A194906

Alternate 13
To finish the week, something completely different. My co-worker Sandro and his wife have been waiting 5 years to adopt two children (yes, they wanted two). A couple of weeks ago lightning struck. The agency called them to inform them that a pair of 10-month old twins were theirs, right here in Alicante. On Wednesday, Sandro stopped by the office to show off his new pride and joy:

  1. I like you main image best this week. It has a look to it like the landscapes from Ansel Adams. Maybe some LCE could lower the influence of the mist somewhat, but don’t overdo it. Congratulations to Sandro and his two new boys. The boy looks much wiser than 10 months old. Very much in peace with the situation also.
