volcanic interruptions

Well my friends, sadly that massive cloud of volcanic ash has blown itself right into my travel plans. I am grumpily sitting on my sofa with a cup of tea and a very, very nice and Expedia agent on the phone. Hopefully I can get to Barcelona in May— Granada and the Alhambra will have to wait until another time, which is fine. Maybe I can even swing a ferry to Africa into that trip— how marvellous would that be?
So as I'm about to embark upon a marathon of Kieslowski's Decalogue and draw some hearts, I thought I'd share some of the pictures I took with my 35mm Exakta 500. Unfortunately, most of the roll was ruined, as there seems to be a problem with the shutter. It's too bad, because I had taken all these marvellous pictures at a fish market. Hopefully it's fixable.

Every cloud has a silver lining (even the volcano clouds). As your Exacta photos. Beautiful. Thanks for them.

Thank you Javier!
Yes, I am trying to find that lining— I am grateful that I am not stranded in an airport somewhere. I am going to try and go to Greece, but the cloud is knocking on our border... so we shall see!

I'm happy you like the photos— it's a pity that the camera is a little broken. I need to find a repairman.
