The Morning Rituals

All pictures where take in a longhouse 200 km in the south of Kuching. I used a 50mm Summilux 1:1.4 from 1978, an old toy which makes old fashioned creamy colors.

It took awhile to grow on me.  Perhaps because I expect those deep shadows and colors.  But this one has a more natural feel, and I like the eyecontact and curious expression.  Beautiful candid image.

I am a huge fan of the few Borneo pics I've seen from you, FP, and this one is new to me, cahllenging sa to the light but with a unique power all its own. Much of the look here is of course redolent of the pre-asph Summilux fifty, which was (is) a wonderfulo lens - much loess clinical than the modern exemplars.

I'm very much looking forward to this set Frank-Peter. I've travelled there myself and really loved it...travelling deeper and deeper into the jungle along the muddy Betang Rejang and sleeping among the Iban.

The light in this particular image is very nice as is the smooth bokeh and depth leading us deeper in the room.
