White swan

I am not quite sure, but I believe I took that picture in Wetzlar Germany (Home of Oscar Barnac, inventor of the LEICA) while I was there for a six month engineering training with Ernst Leitz Company.

It was a dull winter day and the light was weak and flat. I probably took that picture with my 80-200mm zoom lens. It’s not perfectly sharp since I didn’t use a tripod and it was quite a slow film.

But I liked the scene when I saw all the ducks approaching the swan in some kind of radial pattern.
