mirrow

mirrow

from friedrichshain, berlin. shot with the e-p5 and the om zuiko 135 f2.8.  sometimes the compression that a tele lens can deliver simply rules.

and yes, mirrow is not a word. i made that up (but then found out there is of course already an app with that name …)

as far as i can see

mirror mirror in the trash, just a moment till you crash.

found in berlin moabit. i was in a hurry so i don’t know whether it really crashed.

man in the mirror

self through omman in the mirror – of my olympus om-2n that is.

you see the lens mount of the camera and the mirror that mirrors what is behind the view finder (yes, the mirror works both ways ;)) the bright area in the middle of the mirror is the reflection of the split image focusing screen.

thanks a lot to b. who made this picture possible.

haiku for high key

first springtime** morning:
the mirror I stare into
shows my father’s face.

Murakami Kijo

on a technical note: do you notice the heavy vignetting of the lumix 20mm? of course the subject and the contrast enhancement do worsen the thing. fortunately, i happen to like vignetting.

**i have adapted Murakami Kijo’s haiku for springtime. He preferred autumn but for vain calendaric reasons i switched the seasons (even if i do clearly understand that autumn is better suited for the topic of the poem)
