„Untitled nostalgia“

from the gallery of Palle Smith-Petersen
Description:

I was asked to find my best photo (or was it the one I love most), but I haven't taken that one yet. This may come close, though. It is not the first photo I ever took, but definitely among my first. For nostalgia lovers: it was taken on Adox KB 17 film with an Adox camera (Golf Ia, if it matters to you). In the beginning of 1968, before summer and the famous events of 1968. Even then, the image could be called nostalgic. Why does snow add nostalgia? Is it because we remember it from last year's winter? Or the winters of our childhoods? The wagons were old in 1968. Does mould on the emulsion add to the nostalgia?

Schönheit beglückt nicht den, der sie besitzt, sondern den, der sie sehen und anbeten kann. Das wissen alle Gepäckwagen.
