Photographer's Note

Still on a nostalgic mood, here it goes another of my earliest experiments with diapositives. Those more familiarised with the South of Portugal wil certainly recognise the characteristic style of the typical house of Alentejo, a region that back then was popular only among... Alentejanos... and maybe a few refined connoisseurs.

The greenish yellow dominant (much more prominent before PP) was an irritating characteristic of the Orwo films (made in East Germany), that we used much because of its very low price. The Kodak's, Fuji's and others were reserved for special occasions, because they were too expensive to be afforded by our students' purse just for experimenting. That's a problem that that those who begin photographing now don't know; isn't digital wonderful?. I don't remember any more in whose TE gallery I found a reference to Orwo, maybe someone from Poland.

As a 'bonus', I posted two WS's with a 'studio portrait' shot two years later, one in colour and another one in B&W.
