Once in a while in photography you met something to keep. This time I visit an old castle on the Island of Öland in Sweden. It must have been in Bornholm, because I’ve forgotten the name of the castle. Anyway it happened to be an experience in black and white. There I realized the lessons of Ansel Adams about the Ten zones of his zone system. The period with my Hasselblad an the film with 12 exposures. My darkroom too.

I remembered some annoying people came along. They were walking through my frame and I had to wait. But then they stood over there enjoying the view. They were of great value in my exposure. Still thanks folks!
