a rainy day

this day started hot and sticky - rain was in the air! Soon a thunderstorm arose and so I felt free to dig a little bit in old foto albums.
Funny how many fotos I have been making and how few of them are useable today. Although nearly all of those pictures have a certain meaning to me.

I scaned a few pics and hope you'll enjoy this small trip into the past.

The first picture is my first class at school - who do you think am I?

What makes me think that I already forgot some of the names.

Next in history is a picture taken on new year's eve 1980 (if memory serves well - and the note underneath the foto is correct ;))
This is me and a class-mate which turned to be a very good and close friend - until she married.  I still don't understand the difference because at thattime she already was together with her later husband.

The next two fotos are taken again at a new year's eve. It must have been 1985 or so. The girl on the picture is Ewa, a young polish girl who simply ignored my coyness - we have had a very tender but strange relationship.

of course when digging though old albums I found some pictures of Menina, too. This first one was taken at a christmas party in approx. 1984 or so. The woman to the right is Antonia, my brother's first wife.

no comment on this one xD

and a final one taken on the Island Mainau. I somehow like this picture.

Hope this wasn't too boring. Possibly I'll add some pictures from my trip to Scotland later.

Scotland 1991

To spend my day I digged through old photo albums and got caught by the fotos I shot during my trip through scotland in 1991. This trip was remarkable for a lot of reasons: the first time I was in holiday alone together with a girl, the first time I *really* tried to produce good fotos, the last time ... I felt innocently young.
So somehow this trip marks the end of my youth as well as the beginning of the period as a mature man. Although actually there is not such a difference. It's just: the feelings tend to be directed backwards and not forwards.

But enough of serious thoughts about unimportant things. Here are a couple of fotos (scans). A selection from the 300-400 fotos I've made.
BTW: The camera could be interesting to the one or the other. All pictures are shot with a Voigtländer of ca. 1955 If somebody would be willing to buy this camera. Please make a serious offer. The camera is in perfectly well condition (giving the age).

But now a selction of fotos.  some more to be found on my gallery

The music to that pictures has to: Dunn RIngill by Jethro Tull xD

addendum to the Scotland-Post

when being in Scotland back then we were introduced to a band which we imported with certain success to germany:

a friend of mine even started to learn gaelic xD

Although I like the sound of the language I find it terribly difficult. Here an example of a song in gaelic by Runrig):
