An hour of constant complaining!
It has been a truly wonderful morning and it could only have been better if the wind had calmed down some. The sun is shining, birds are singing, swans, both mute and trumpet pass by in big numbers up in the sky and I saw two cranes but heard several while we were out walking. The sun will be blocked by the clouds later on today but the winds will finally calm down some. Tomorrow seems to be a fantastic day, too bad I must work 🙂
Another sure sign of spring hanging around is the Jackdaw’s hunt for a good chimney to build a nest in 🙂 So even if it isn’t cold indoors I will have the fire burning. I have a net strapped to the top of my chimney, the problem is that it doesn’t stop Jackdaw’s from pushing down sticks and other things they need to build a nest 🙂 I guess they think that as long as they can fill the chimney with the building material they’ll figure out how to remove the net later on 🙂
I would have liked to bring the Edixa camera with me on our next walk but there’s a problem, the film broke at the end in the cassette it comes in and now I can’t open the camera to remove the film and place it in a container where the light won’t reach it. Back in the days the film cassette came in a black plastic container but today it comes in a see through container?! So I think I must buy something we call electric tape, a sort of elastic black tape that I can cover the see through container with so I can remove the film and put a new one in it instead. I have two other films from the Hasselblad camera just waiting to be shipped for developement.
I also noticed that I have one film in my old Minolta camera that still has a few shots left but I can’t use that camera either because it needs batteries to work and I tend to forget to bring them with me so I get the right kind again :-), Soo many cameras still no chance of using them 🙂 I still haven’t tried my old Kodak No.2 Folding Autographic Brownie yet though (they made it between 1915-1926. It’s that camera I bought for less than 4$ US 🙂 It works just fine and I’ve seen it sold for much, much more later on. It is nice to be lucky once in a while 🙂 ). I just cleaned the lens which was amazingly easy 🙂 I would never dare to do that on any newer lens but this one was simple, just screw it apart and put it together again, it is impossible to do anything wrong 🙂 I think I’ll bring that one along on our next walk!
But first I need to do the laundry otherwise I won’t have any clean clothes next week, I don’t mind but I guess my work friends will 🙂 🙂 🙂 I hope we’ll have sunshine long enough so I can try this old camera but I haven’t decided if I should use the only black and white film I have or a color film, in a way it seems to fit better to use the black and white with such an old camera.
Have a great day!
