1861 – In The Warm Room

I’m back in Vienna and I took the Panasonic LX5 with me. Only the LX5. I can’t even tell why, I just did, and it feels very, very good to use it again.

One thing though: If you happen to have big hands like mine, forget about using it with gloves. I have nice, soft nappa leather gloves with cashmere inlet and I have no problem wearing them while using the D300. No chance with the LX5’s tiny buttons though.

As to the images, well, it’s quite unsettling to walk through a street at night and to suddenly see a Caterpillar where last week a house was.

The Image of the Day is from the steamy window of a greek restaurant around the corner. I love the contrast between the warmth behind the windows and the coolness of the sun-bleached ads for vacations in Greece.

The Song of the Day is “In The Warm Room” from Kate Bush’s 1978 second album “Lionheart”. Hear it on YouTube.

  1. I have been using thin cross-country skiing gloves, and they are ok, but only good until -5 °C for holding the camera.

    Especially the preview button causes problems. The control stick in the LX3 was better in terms of usability than the control wheel in the LX5, but I have adapted, more or less.

    A long enough nail in the left thumb helps – maybe I should have it grow longer…

  2. That torn down house image captured me, I feel the same when walking by a scene like this. I’m glad it happens very seldom.

    1. There are lots of more or less similar designs from different manufacturers, but as far as I found out, these are supposed to be the warmest and of the best quality. But then, I don’t have them yet.
