Marjan started to make photos of mushrooms ….

She uses my small camera now …


a Canon S120


So I’m without that little handy devil from now on … ;-( 

Like all women, she is amazing creative with her makeup mirror …


It’s the only way to see the bottom.


She understood what Henri Cartier-Bresson meant with :

“The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.”


And she leaves me with all the RAW-photos on the memory-card …. in the same way Henry Cartier Bresson didn’t develop his films or photos himself but founded Magnum to do it for him ……..

“Actually, I’m not all that interested in the subject of photography. Once the picture is in the box, I’m not all that interested in what happens next. Hunters, after all, aren’t cooks.”



she even took this picture of an old mushroom ….
