Castellet i La Gornal, Alt Penedés, Barcelona (Spain).

This is a tipical rural house in Catalonia.

Castellet i La Gornal is located in the reservoir of river Foix, between the regions of Garraf, Baix Penedés and Alt Penedés.

It stands out by its castle of century X, also called of Sant Esteve. It was a fortress that defined the limit between Marca Hispánica (christians) with Al-Andalus (muslims). In century XVI it was destroyed, and it was reconstructed in 1925 for particular use by Mr. Peray. At the moment it belongs to the Fundació Castellet del Foix that has carried out the restoration until the present state.

Artizen HDR with Lock06 tone mapping. Removed TV antenna, applied gaussian noise, soft vignette and platinotype effect.

Platinotype is a monochrome photographic printing process, based on the light-sensitivity of ferric oxalate.

Ferric oxalate is reduced to ferrous oxalate by light. The ferrous oxalate then reacts with platinum (II) (or palladium II) reducing it to basic platinum, which builds up the image.

William Willis discovered the process in 1873 and the first platinum paper reached the market in 1881, produced by the Platinotype Company, a firm founded by Willis in 1879.

When Willis invented the process, platinum was relatively cheap, but it quickly became more costly starting in 1906. In 1907 platinum had become 52 times more expensive than silver. Eastman Kodak and most other producers stopped fabrication of the paper in 1916. Russia controlled 90% of the world platinum supply in World War I and all available platinum was used in the war effort.

Due to the shortage of commercial paper and high cost, photographers experimented with palladium paper and platinum-palladium mixes. Platinum paper has continued in use until the present, interrupted only by the world wars.

About This Collection

This collection of photographs was the result of a happy mistake while walking through the Hakone Garden’s bamboo forest in Saratoga. I was messing around with my camera on manual mode, trying different angles and motions when I noticed the resulting images resembled impressionist paintings. I liked how the bamboo forest was implied though color, light and movement, so I sat there for a while and tried different things until I got the look I wanted. All of these photographs are single shots with very minor adjustments in Photoshop.

S Stefano Rotondo Apse Mosaic

We visited the church of San Stefano Rotondo on Thursday to look at the frescoes – but I love the apse mosaic, too. Sts Primus and Felicianus flanking a gemmed cross, c. 630. The main fabric of the church is late 5th century, with MANY modifications.

The single-line inscription is interesting. I’m trying to remember whether other small apses have such brief inscriptions as well.

Belzec – the house of Christian Wirth http Christian Wirth was the first commandant of the Belzec death camp and in the summer of 1942 became the overseer of the Aktion Reinhard operations which led to the deaths of at least 1.4m people in the death camps of Belzec, Treblinka and Sobibor. Despite being one of the greatest mass murderers in history, very littls is known about him. He had previously served in the CID in Stuttgart and was noted for results – probably through the use of beatings to get confessions. Unlike most of the other criminals of the holocaust, Wirth was not a young man. He was born in 1885. Despite being in his mid fifties he possessed a great deal of physical strength which turned to violence probably due to mental problems caused by his asthma. This film shows the house where he lived in Belzec during his time as commandant there before moving to a flat in Lublin airport when he was replaced by his deputy Gottlieb Hering as commandant. The house became vacant following the death of the occupier in December 2006. My channel on you tube : is one of themost prolific from Poland, although unfortunately not the most visited. With almost one film per day, one may be forgiven for thinking I do nothing else but I do have a day job as well. I have produced more than 400 original films, most in English but also in Polish, French, Italian, Spanish and the occassional hint of German and Hebrew. My big interest in life is travel and history but I
