About Me

My photo
Adalbert is a forum for me, to post ephemera, photography, poetry, occasional travel notes, and various spontaneous motions. Cover photo: Parsonage where my great-grandfather spent his early years. Taken near Liegnitz, Silesia, ca. 1870.

more pics


a couple more photos from Japan -- the well-known Ryoanji garden and a wedding image I happened upon at Katsuga Shrine, Nara. They have an antique quality a little reminiscent of Felice Beato or Pierre Loti!

Been re-reading Joseph Conrad's Under Western Eyes -- possesses potent psychological analysis and tension. Would be worthwhile to compare the novel with Dostoyevsky, which I'm sure has been done.

More photos I took in Kyoto Japan in 1995... Again, taken with a point and shoot camera,
they had an "out of time" texture. Sometimes conditions are just right.
