Diptychon Of Socialist Medicine

Stained glass windows, former hospital, Waltershausen, Thuringia


These stained glass windows in the former hospital (now a geriatric rest home) in my hometown Waltershausen have always fascinated me. What a strange contrast between the clerical style of stained glass windows and the socialist aesthetics! On the other hand, they appeal to me because in my day job I’m a doctor, and you don’t get that kind of adulation today. In both instances, it’s an attraction-aversion conflict, I guess.
What’s your take on it, dear reader? There must be someone …
Technically, this is from the first color negative film exposed with the Nikon S3 LEB. I tried the new Kodak Ektar 100, and the claims of extremely fine grain are fully justified.
The exposure was 1/60 at f/1.4. As I wasn’t standing parallel to the windows, the left one unfortunately lacks a bit of sharpness. But boy, do I like the colors of this combination of Nikkor-S f/1.4 50 mm and Kodak Ektar!
