He stopped by today, and I asked if he would let me photograph him. He said yes.
I took a few snaps, and then he asked me if I wanted him to smile or not.
He always smiles - I wanted something different.
"Think of something sad."
He replied: "My mother just died."
"You`re joking", I said - even though I knew he wasn`t.

It`s been a while! Needed to take a break from posting - didn`t feel I had much to show, even though I`ve shot hundreds of snaps, and developed a few rolls of film the last few months. Perhaps I`ll post some of it later.
What got me started today was a gift from two good friends. They gave me two cameras, a Canon EOS 3, and a Canon EOS 1n DCS 520. I`ve run two rolls of Ilford Delta 3200 - (really grainy stuff) through the EOS 3, and I plan to develop the films this weekend. The other camera had an internal harddrive that was impossible to connect to my computer, so I ordered a PCMIA to CF adapter and a new battery.
The DCS 520 was one of the first Pro dSLR`s, and probably the nail in the coffin for film-photojournalism. It`s a two megapixel camera, (a little less than in a regular cellphone cam...) and I was surprised when I saw the files - they`re crisp and clear, and I believe it`s possible to print these files up to almost 20x30 cm`s.

The camera reacts just as quickly as my Nikon D200.
Here`s Ida. She loved the camera so much, she lost her color.
