There is nothing special about this photo. I took it in Speyer last Friday with a newly “adopted” Hasselblad 500 and Planar lens. It shows early German spring in a setting typical for smaller German towns. Yet it suddenly reminded me of something: that it can be a task worth while just to transpose the visible world into black and white and some format, without endeavoring to add any “subjective factor”, without imposing my own view, without putting my interpretation in the foreground. And maybe this includes also not to strive for the most peculiar, original, interesting motif. I think I will try to follow this task for a while. And it seems to me that the Hasselblad is the proper tool for it. Composing is even calmer, more deliberate than with the Rolleicord, and the precision of the Planar lens is amazing.
