722 – Saint James

Yesterday began with the mountains coming out of the fog and me shooting a panorama. I tried to merge the JPEGs in Photoshop, but what I tried to do to the sky led to pixelation. Merging the RAW files, on the other hand, made my computer go out of virtual memory. Hmm … 32 RAW files are no slouch, me thinks. Well, I’ll show it to you when I find out how to do it ๐Ÿ™‚

This image is from the afternoon. After a whole day of work I spent the minutes of late sun in the supermarket near my new home, but who says that you can’t make a nice image after actual sundown? It’s just another bad match for a 50/1.4 though. My 50/1.8 for a quarter of the price had done it just as well.

This is Sankt Jakob im Rosental, Saint James in English, a village on one of the countless pilgrimage routes to Santiago de Compostela. The Song of the Day? Of course “Saint James Infirmary“, on my disk interpreted by Dr. John on his 2004 album “N’Awlinz: Dis Dat or d’Udda“, on YouTube to be seen as a collaboration of Dr. John and Eric Clapton. Mmmm …. Tasty ๐Ÿ™‚

One thought on “722 – Saint James”

  1. I am happy that you have finally shot that church, because it is one of my all time favorites ๐Ÿ™‚
