495 – Time Marches On

It’s Friday night now, past 2am, and I sit here, back in Carinthia, after four hours on the train, working on my backlog. Well, at least the images are done and already uploaded to SmugMug, the titles are found, the Songs selected, only the actual writing is left. Let’s go:

These images are from Wednesday, and the first is a morning image. I took it near work, using the Sigma 70/2.8 at f13. Nothing spectacular, but I like the compression.

The next one is from the evening. Before leaving work, I had switched to the Sigma 10-20. 10mm and f4 at ISO 360 and 1/8s. We had images like that before, although that does not necessarily stop me doing variations again. Anyway, nothing really new here.

Most of the other images were shot from out of different doorways, with very slow shutter speeds, focused at one wall of the doorway. I had taken lots of these images. Some had people walking by, some not, and from those that had, I liked the one that became Image of the Day best.

The Song of the Day is once again from Dr. John, “Time Marches On“, and again it is from “N’Awlinz: Dis Dat or d’Udda“.

481 – Hour Of Need

Yesterday was not a rainy day, no, the sun did shine, and we even have some first primroses in the garden. Still, I was working all day and couldn’t manage to get any decent shot. Long after midnight, in my hour of need, I remembered the clock that had saved me two days ago. This time it is the pendulum.

Hour Of Need“, the Song of the Day, is again from the 1999 Faithless album “Sunday 8pm“.

479 – Time

What do you do on a day with snowfall in the morning, dense fog from noon and heavy rain in the evening? Well, I did not go out photographing. These are the times to go searching in the attic, the times for old and broken things, for those things that everybody wanted you to throw away at last.

The Song of the Day is “Time” from Tom Waits’ classic 1985 album “Rain Dogs“. Hear a fantastic live version on YouTube.
