A few more tidbits from this weekend that didn’t fit in elsewhere.
When returning from Monsters of Spex on Saturday night I took an alternate route walking across a bridge over the Rhein. A big river needs a big bridge so this took a while to get up there and across. And I really liked it. Walking on an ugly concrete bridge in the middle of the night with just the street lights shining and six lanes of traffic rushing by is cool in my book. To top things off you could even see the cathedral at a distance.
I also took the following photo which I quite like:
While taking all these photos I am becoming unhappier with my mum’s digital camera. At night I set it to ISO 400 manually, so I’ll get at least some light in there. But there’s an incredible amount of static. Unfortunately the automatic mode for choosing the ISO number isn’t too good and gives too many underexposed photos with the camera. And it’s quite hard to actually judge the noise you’ll get on the little crappy screen.
On a later leg of the journey I met some more students from Göttingen. Chatting with them made time pass more quickly. Hmmm, nice girls…
