What late? Mach nichts, as the Old Man used to say. The calendar isn’t our master. This blog is a duty-free zone. No work performed under obligation is welcome here.
Speaking of the Old Man, I painted the walls of my office this weekend, and in the process of moving the bookshelves I discovered something I must have hidden away: a portfolio of color photographs by Kurt Peter Karfeld, Aus den Deutschen Alpen, published by Bruckmann Verlag in the 1940s. Capt. P. A. Jones, aka the Old Man, received these as a gift while he was working in the military government after the war.
Funnily enough, these photographs (I uploaded a few more at Flickr) were taken only a couple hundred miles from where Walser and Seelig’s walks took place, and probably show a landscape not too different from what Robert and Carl saw, albeit in the foothills of the German Alps rather than the Swiss.
