I was born in 1959 and as a young girl I bought an old used camera.
I've learned to develop movies and pictures by myself in my own little photo lab.
It was always a special feeling when I saw in the developer bath came out the image.
I loved it to develop pictures themselves.
Later, I even had a camera with roll film - there were still those in the GDR in the 80s.
These films had 12 or 24 images.
Every picture I have carefully considered and designed the negative conscious.
It was a sensual creative act and I miss that feeling today.
Only since 4 years, I have a small digital camera with which I make most photos for this blog.
This of course is much cheaper and there are 1000 possibilities.
But it does not really appeal to me because I miss the craft.
So I do not edit my pictures on the PC, I let them as they are on the memory card.
Then they are simple and honest.
If I had more money, I would still buy movies and use my old camera.
Because to me the process of photographing and developing that I liked better.
Only today is very expensive for me ...
But some images (the really bests!) on this blog are scanned and already many years old.
So this picture I made as a young girl.
It was a performance, then to photograph the cat and set everything before she ran away ...
A real Kodak Moment!
