Ah, the street of the old European cities, filled with open-air markets, artwork, mimes & musicians. It doesn’t get much better than this. Upon our stroll through Marienplatz in old-city Munich we found this quartet playing a number of traditional Bavarian folk-tunes. It was difficult to get some clear images with the crowd of people, but I find this one quite memorable. The point of focus is on the tip of the violin. Due to the aperture being set for 1.6 (very shallow), the rest of the image fades out from there. I absolutely love the rendering of the accordionist in the background.
I absolutely love the city of Boston and its architecture – old and new. While we were walking along the waterfront in the early morning, there was some soft gorgeous light splashing on the Boston Aquarium. Metering? Well, not as easy as you might think. Can’t meter off the sky, the underside of the structure would become too dark. If you exposed for the underside of the structure, the sky would be blown out. Where’s the balance point?
The Speicherstadt (warehouse) district of Hamburg, Germany is quaint and charming during the daytime and absolutely breathtaking in the evening. Stepping into this waterfront district is almost like stepping back in time as people get around solely by way of boat and their lifestyles are totally tied to a seafaring way of life.
