Here's Two for You
Just a quick post, as I seem to have temporary lost the capability of putting words through from my mind and onto this screen.
Had a hard night at work last night trying to fix that yellow big thing to the right in the lower picture of the two. A big offshore crane that is, even though it might look that big in this picture as was stowed into it's stowing position. It obviously does not appear as yellow in this picture, just because it came out like this after the light had passed the emulsion of some B&W film a good while ago.
This is the way the back deck of the ship I work on looks like when it's not over crowded with this and that and all sorts.
The crane now works again, thank heavens, after me and the electrician did try most of our good old tricks on it until 4 in the morning, so that should make me sleep quite well for a few hours I would think, until I need to be up on my two feet again soon, doing more work as things are these days.
None of the old tricks worked though, of course, so we had to invent a couple of new ones. They are now filed and recorded as new tricks, and will probably come in handy some day sooner rather than later if I know the ways of it's bits and pieces right. It's a moody lump of old dutch steel that one, you see.
Both snaps were taken with some heavy, bulky, boxy and lovely Mamiya RZ67 medium format camera. I got a pile of them, but I can live with that.
