Roderick had his 7th birthday last week when we were in Scicli. That was very nice for him to have it in such a wonderful place, but a true birthday party with all your friends is naturally the thing to have when you become 7....
Talking about birthday parties. I bought the new Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds album....very good indeed.

A great dinner with Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten tonight. Boris is a good cook and a terrific host...Next to discussing the state of affairs in media and technology, we discussed Thenextweb conference taking place next week. I'll be moderating a start up panel on Friday, so maybe I see you there...
The analogue line of photography takes a little longer to develop. Today I got the first processed roll of film back from the shoot in Scicli. It is probably just my imagination, but film does seem to have that little bit of extra oomph... See for yourself here

A terrific Easter in Scicli on Sicily following the Easter Processions there. The raw edit can be found here on Flickr. I will make a 12 to 16 edit summary that should tell the story. If you have recommendations for which pictures to take, please put them as comments with the pictures on Flickr...

John Melskens wanted to shoot with the Leica Noctilux this Saturday. It was a while since I used the 'King of the night' myself, but then I understood quickly again, that this is a very special lens indeed. Difficult, close to impossible, to focus at short distances at F1, but fantastic when succeeding...Some more pictures at this Flickr set...
