Home in the French Chateau

February 1-28, 2016

Back in Hollywood for some weeks of writing holiday and photographing. And the Grammys, naturally.

Too cute: In the evening I found the waiter preparing papers with stencil drawings for Robin to color the next day.

Facebook Anniversary

San Francisco, February 5, 2016

Facebook have their 12th year birthday today and I checked to see when I joined.

I know I was one of the first outside the American universities, and one of the first Danes. So I found the original e-mail, and it's 9 years and two days! Mark Zuckerberg was 22 year old when I signed up!

 

I signed up to Facebook three years after they started and 5-6 months after they opened up for people outside universities.
I signed up to Facebook three years after they started and 5-6 months after they opened up for people outside universities.



Facebook was only for university students in the beginning and opened up for registration outside universities in September 2006. So I was onto it six months after. I remember when I registered and saw the Facebook page which looked somewhat like a blog or forum, I thought, "What is this good for?" (and some times today I still do).

Facebook is a step on the road that started in 1995 primarily: My own website started in 1996, and from the year before - 1995 - the Internet allowed us to connect with people we share interests and value with, rather than people we happened to grow up in the same street with. The internet allow us to connect across the globe and across time zones, across culture, race, religion and reach out to people that - we learned - matters to us. Who would have known?

 

     
 

"Years ago when doing research for Leica R glass I came across your website and emailed you with my questions. You were gracious enough to respond more than once and I want to say thank you.

Ever since that encounter I read your posts and receive your newsletter. Subsequently, I now own few Leica m bodies shooting only film.."

We live in a French chateau in Hollywood when we are here. Robin has some cool friends to play with and they paint and do LEGO.

"Just to say how much I’m learning from you through your writings and photography. I read with great interest your review on the Noctilux f/0.95.

I was totally captivated by the Noctilux 1.0 shot of the fire hydrant – I don’t think I have ever seen a better photograph. I wanted to walk up to it, and say “Hi, my name is Garry, what’s yours”. . .

Your caption says it all: “Some will hate the fact that they can't clearly determine where the focus is ... and if it's really sharp. That is not the point; look at the atmoshere and consider if there would be a photo if it had been with another lens”.

This is the kind of photography that I want to do ... To capture the mood, the atmosphere, the moment, not only to tell the story, but to be part of it".

"First of all, thanks for the fantastic information on your “All things Leica” kind of website. I am a new owner of a wonderful Leica M type 240. Couple of lenses and somewhat less in the wallet, but happy in the overall Leica experience.  I also have owned an M6 for many years, so I’m very comfortable to the feel and Leica analog universe and operations.  

Now into the digital world with my favorite camera. I have completely enjoyed your insight and thoughts on the use of this great camera. Thanks and I love you work with the camera as well".
