711 – Autumn’s Here

I don’t change lenses all the time. I like to keep my lenses for some days, like to get into their way of seeing. I am in no way a fanatic. If it’s a zoom, I use it as a zoom, if it’s a prime, I zoom with my feet. I do have a slight preference for fast primes though. At the moment it’s the Sigma 20/1.8, just because I had it still mounted from yesterday’s gloomy, rainy afternoon.

The first image for today is a composition that I kinda like, although I liked it even more with two people, a man and a woman, crossing in the background. I had waited for the perfect moment, all positions were exactly how they needed to be, the image was balanced and … focus was all wrong. I wanted it on the bicycle but got it on the background. Oh well.

The Image of the Day was shot some minutes earlier on a street corner with a flower shop. They sell tiny pumpkins for decoration, but of course when you get in very near, everything becomes big.

The Song of the Day is “Autumn’s Here” from Hawksley Workman’s 2003 album “Lover / Fighter“. See him perform live on YouTube.

  1. Hi Andreas,

    As fall is slowly making it’s way into the southeastern USA, you image for today is such a lovely reminder that autumn is on the way. I’m such a sucker for fall crops and the colors they bring. And, at the end of the week, I will be in Jackson Wyoming where fall — and a wee bit of snow in the mountains — has already arrived.

    Thank you for such a lovely reminder that the seasons are changing and autumn is here. Have a great one!!

  2. Congrats on your book it is beautiful I have several friends that have created them. Very awesome !! As always your work is unique and speaks of your great talents.
