2244 – I Got Stripes III

This is the post for Saturday, but the only image actually made yesterday is the one made on the highway.

Just like last weekend we had snow, only this time I couldn’t avoid it while driving.

The Image of the Day was taken in Styria today, for a change on a bright, cold, sunny day. You’ll see more of that tomorrow.

For today I have only this architectural pattern, and if you’re interested in what the hell this is, I’ve uploaded a more conventional view for your illumination 🙂

I’ve worked with the 75/1.8 at f11, and still there was not enough depth of field. It’s a compromise, but I really like the image.

The Song of the Day is again “I Got Stripes” from Johnny Cash’ “At Folsom Prison” album. Hear it on YouTube.

2243 – Don’t Throw It In The W.C.

Most of today I’ve spent refactoring one gigantic C# program, but in the early afternoon I took two hours off to get an image and stuff from the supermarket. The image was quickly done, but shopping was pure hell. It’s that season, you know …

In case you wonder, this is a toilet wagon parked under a highway bridge 🙂

The Song of the Day is “Don’t Throw It In The W.C.” from Paolo Conte’s 1995 album “Una Faccia in Prestito”. Wonderful music, you really got to hear it on YouTube.

2072 – And With His Stripes We Are Healed

Or maybe not 🙂

In any case I got an email from JustHost, telling me that the hardware upgrade has been done. I am not sure if I understand it correctly, the first email told me about two switches, maybe it’s only the first part that’s done, but then, I’ll just try posting and I’ll save the post’s text in a local file, just in case they do another switch.

The Song of the Day is “And With His Stripes We Are Healed” from Handel’s Messiah. As usual: if you have no recording of it, you deserve at least the one directed by Trevor Pinnock. Go for it 🙂

I didn’t find the Pinnock version, but among many others on YouTube you could hear this one by The Brandemburg Consort and The Choir of King’s College Cambridge, conducted by Stephen Cleobury.

1386 – Notes From The Underground

I like to take small roads that I don’t know, like to see where they take me. On Saturday one of them has taken me to this place where the highway crosses the railway. Actually, now that it’s Sunday evening, now that I am on the train back to Vienna, I must have come through that place just minutes ago. I noticed too late though.

The Song of the Day is “Notes From The Underground” from the 1987 Manhattan Transfer album “Brasil”. YouTube has a live performance, and to judge from their looks, it must be from about that time.
