738 – Map Of The Stars

Super Stupid Things To DoTM.

What about some of that? Uhhh … what could I come up with? Wait a minute … yes! That’s it. Traveling with a bag full of lenses, but leaving your camera behind! Oh dear, I’ve left my D300 along with the Sigma 50/1.4 in Carinthia, only to be recovered on Friday.

There are two roads from here 🙂

Probably I’ll never get a better excuse for buying a D700. On the other hand, reason tells me that I currently spend so much money in that moving adventure, that I’d better not.

Normally I’m strictly adverse to listening to reason, but this time I did. When I sold my D200, almost a year ago, I secured the option to borrow it back should need be. Then I had thought of the D300 being sent in for service or such, but now it comes handy as well.

Here we are. Today’s images were shot with a D200. It’s still an incredibly capable camera. Apparent differences are the LCD and the much more sluggish scrolling in full zoom, but when I had it, I did not miss any speed. It’s only that the D300 is much faster and you get accustomed to that.

Both images were shot within five meters distance where Burggasse meets Sankt-Ulrichs-Platz and I’m quite pleased with both of them. The leaves were not arranges, but I admit having removed some peripheral distractions, most of them physically while being there 🙂

The Song of the Day is the incredibly beautiful “Map Of The Stars” from Melissa Etheridge’s 2007 album “The Awakening“. Make sure you see her perform live on YouTube.
