Aaaaand another month gone. I had to take a look at my calendar to see what all I did in November, but it appears that apart from attending a Thanksgiving dinner, candle making with a friend, and a trip to Hamburg with said friend I really didn’t do much socialising.
My immune system must have thought “Why not end the year on the same note as we started!?” and gave up. I returned home from my Hamburg trip sick, and have been on sick leave this past week again, basically sleeping off my cold, hence the lateness of this monthly review.
Luckily I only got sick on the last night of the trip, so I was able to enjoy the first three days. Immensely. I visited friends, together with the friend I traveled I got to see areas of Hamburg I hadn’t been to before, because she actually grew up there, which is always a bonus, having a local accompany you.
As you can see I tried some night photography, which I was content with as I honestly have to say it was a half-hearted attempt without a tripod and without much fiddling with the camera. I was enjoying the city too much to be bothered with how the pictures would turn out. Also, I only used my 50mm lens, even though I’d brought the tele lens. Note to self: only take one lens on city trips.
Looking forward to do Xmassy things in December once I’m fit again.
PS: If you click on the first pic of the gallery, do you see something weird happen? For me, the image appears sharp and focussed for about 1 second, then it jumps and blurs. I’ve re-uploaded it but don’t know why it keeps happening.
