Friday was a hot day in Villach, although the sky was overcast when I strolled through town. It didn’t feel like Summer though, and the signs of Summer’s end are everywhere.
I still use the Nikon 50/1.2 and I have found some perverse liking for the slow process of focusing that beast. Actually I enjoy it so much, that I’m going to buy an AI/S 24/2.8 Nikkor as soon as I am back to Vienna on Monday. It’s a bit crazy, given that I have an AF 24/2.8 Nikkor and that lens can of course be focused manually as well, but I am after that feeling that only these old Nikkors have. Oh well!
The Song of the Day is “Autumn Lullaby” from Natalie Merchant’s spectacular new album of childhood poetry set to music, “Leave Your Sleep”. I have not found it on YouTube, but on Natalie’s site you can listen to long excerpts of the songs, and once you’ve done that, you’re likely to buy the album anyway 😀
