Many thanks for all your kind posts on our mishap last week!! … best therapy for me – for anything – is to go out shooting… and thats what we did. It was of course already planned for some time and the only thing that was about to stop it was the weather – but we were lucky: only a few light drops during the shoot. I picked up Yve and her boyfriend at the Station in Den Haag and we went to Wassenaar – a small village close to a huge dune area at the sea. It was quite a walk from the car park to the sea – with a Deardorff on your shoulder, another camera bag with a contax and 8×10 film holders it can get quite tough….but it was worth it! ….luckily I decided to get a back-up contax about two weeks ago… I would not have imaged how quickly I would need it!
The wonderful model is Yve – she is from Poland, studying in Amsterdam currently… you will probably agree, she has a wonderful face ….and is lots of fun to work with. Hope you like the images!

What really hurts is to work without my Pentax Spotmeter…. I am blind without it… I am never sure about the camera meter…. fortunately it worked out – more or less.
UPDATE: I tried to answer all emails/posts from this blog that were still open. I hope I did not overlook any – please do not hesitate to send it again… Thanks a lot for all your feedback! 🙂
