Yes. And that was twenty years ago. Imagine how the Viking descendants dress today...Reminds me of this photo project (which I liked, I should add).

I like this montage Rog. Like the Death Star hanging above a golden sea.

You're really handling that Mamiya perfectly Ken. I'm also really impressed with the tonal gradation in this photo. Just look at all the grey tones in the foreground, wow.

What a great story, thank you for sharing it John. I am always happy to read about good relationships with mother-in-laws :) Joking aside, I love it when these time travel wormholes appear, where an artefact connects two points across time in a single place.

My mother-in-law left me her Rolleiflex 3.5F Planar when she passed away. She bought it new in 1961, so it's 60 years old this year. I used it a few times over the years, the last time in 1978. It's been in storage since then. I just had it serviced and here's a shot from the first roll.

This picture is of the Naperville, IL community pool. It's a fitting photograph because, as a child in the 1930s, my mother-in-law used to swim here, riding her horse from the neighboring town of Hinsdale. At that time our community pool was a rock quarry.

Amazing, both the photo and this bizarre custom that has reared its, imho ugly, head in the last decade.

Very well done Steve. And a really interesting place too. It must have been pretty impressive sight two thousand years ago.

Wow dreamy! And not easy to do with a lens as sharp as that one.

Very cool Gary. Incidentally if anyone's interested in a book about books throughout history check out Grand Strategies by Charles Hill. Gulliver's Travels features in it.

This one is some kind of work cart. My father had notes that the brick around the harbor area was part of the restoration after the war. I don't think Marken was bombed or damaged, I think it was some form of stimulus aid. 

And what a vehicle. I bet parking must be a challenge...

And if you are a car fan like me, this is some sort of high end Daimler from the 50s in London. Note the side panels on the car. Leica M3, 50mm Summicron, Kodak pre-Kodachrome slide film.

You do the BEST environmental portraits Pritam. Wonderful.

I think it's easy to overlook a photo like this but for me it raises heaps of questions about what was here, who built whatever it was and why it was destroyed. And add the layer of Steve's Gurness Broch and we've suddenly again entered one of those photographic wormholes but on some meta level where the time has been replaced by subject-matter similarity across space (I actually don't know what that means, btw :rolleyes:). And then add another layer, namely the camera used, and our wormhole suddenly divides into a third (or is it fifth by now?) dimension and we're suddenly in Ken's fence photo and can marvel at how the magicians at both Ilford and Orwo manage to squeeze all those grey tones into a little bit film.

Thanks so much for taking the time to appreciate our efforts, Phil, as we so very much appreciate yours!

I am now the happy owner of a ”new” Leica M4. Following this thread and digging into all old archive negs has been so inspiring. I just could not resist the temptation to go back. I’m an old nostalgic fool, but why not enjoy all what you can in these horrible isolation times. I posted a picture in the Leica film camera thread. ”Back to basics”.  :))

Thanks Klaus!
Took me quite some time to answer, but alway to much work to do.
Indeed it was taken less then 19 kilometers away from the Düsseldorf school, where the Becher's still was teaching in these days and I used a film that they have also used. Agfapan 25. Unfortunately it wasn't available as sheet film anymore, even in these days (but still was in 135 and 120). It had expired 10 years ago in 1976. I took a second exposure on 125 ASA film, but the AP 25 showed way more details and sharpness, even in 4x5 inches.

I work in a building next to this wormhole and I always wonder when it will be absorbed by this. They are doing no more repairs and so it looks like we are on the way. Formerly there was an huge industrial complex at this place and that's may be a small bit was is left of it, but seemed like there is constant change and growing going on there and more and more new stuff appeared. Mother nature has also taken a bit of it back. I mix up a bit of photochemical home-brew stuff to make the ORWO even more magic, but truly it is without any doubt. NP15 is one of the nicest films I know.
As long as we are not absorbed by the wormhole I will continue taking pictures of it.

Here is another one from this scenery:
