Unfortunately I haven’t touched my “real” camera since I came back to Hamburg, so today I had to use my 1 megapixel iPad camera to document moments I wanted to remember and things in my surrounding.
But this was also kind of a learning experience, since I just read a book about iPhoneography. An interesting approach to shooting with a bad camera. Works with the iPad as well.
29 degrees ceclius today, no wind and the bitumen mass was literally melting under my shoes. I thought this was a fair reason to allow myself to extend my summer holidays with a few days. :) I took this picture when I had my first (!) ice cream this summer, and enjoyed the view of the Alster lake (and the Finnland Haus, the high building to the left).
Drive-thru is a part of the every day life here. Almost every time we go somewhere we make a quick stop to get coffee, lunch or snacks at a drive-thru. (Unfortunately I’ve eaten more hamburgers here than during my seven month stay in Hamburg.)
But we already know that North Americans like their cars, so nothing new with a lot of drive-thrus. But the funny thing I’ve noticed on this trip is that they even have drive-thru banks here! First I thought this was a bit weird, but at the other hand, how convenient if you have kids in the car or just don’t want to get out of your car on a rainy day like today. Makes sense :)
Why buy expensive equipment for your camera when you can make them yourself? ;) Yesterday I made a bokeh photography filter for my 50 mm f1.8 lens. So my next challenge will be to try it out. I just need to find the right object or environment for this kind of pictures.
