"The Wedding" - Festivities in honour of the wedding of Elector Friedrich V with Elizabeth Stuart 400 years ago. The celebrations at that time in Heidelberg were a big event and so they were today. They had 13 children, only 5 survived the mother. Politically Friedrich V had no fortune at all. He died of an infectious desease, probably the black plague. Elisabeth returned to England and died 30 years after his death.

Hi Kalena, Bo and Rene, thank you for your kind comments. This is a cheap drugstore development ( Cewe via dm), home scanned with a Canoscan 8800F. Exposure was guessed, about 5 - 10 seconds at f/5.6. Slow films are better for night photography because they often have a better reciprocity behaviour than fast films.

Nice image, Reinhold, Bravo!

And thanks for the info about our shared histories, I did not know he had married Elizabeth Stuart! I think he was also King of Bohemia for a short time, - don't know the story, but probably religious intolerance!

Best, Mike

Thank you very much, Mike.The structures of authorithy, strength and prevalence were very complex these days and can't be explained with a few sentences. At least I can't. All the european sovereign clans were related more or less, but that didn't prevent them from making wars or fighting against each other in the name of god or whatever else. I'm not good in history, but I guess there's no reason to be proud of having Frederic V as Elector in Heidelberg. But the fireworks were nice ;-) To get an impression of the hotchpotch of Frederic V's sovereignty and biography you may read more here f.e.:

Reinhold, thanks for the link, as I suspected, religious intolerance did play a big part!

There is a caveat though, I have always thought that is best to remember that history is almost always written by the victors!!

Great picture Reinhold !
The houses near the river give it an extra depth !!
(When I put a same Himatic for sale, it was sold in a few hours .. he came by train from Leuven (about 60 KM - that's 1/5th of Belgium ;-) at that moment I knew these must be excellent cameras ... I remember an extremely clear viewfinder - even compared with the Leica M's and the Kiev 5 ... btw do you know there is any- similar with Copex film -
produced for the moment ?
