Heidelberg; Random Obstkuchen Teil. 4



My camera battery wigged out and stopped working on Saturday night after a week on the road, all I was looking foward to doing was shooting and exploring. There was no way I was going to spend my day off in my hometown sans camera. At the end of my rope I went out and bought a little Nikon D60 from a camera shop five minutes before closing. The shop worker literally tried to talk me out of dropping 400 euro on the camera either because he thought I was crazy, (I was pretty sweaty cause I ran all the way to the store I had seen earlier that day) or cause he was too lazy to rebalance his books. Either way I got the camera and was able to shoot the next day. It was almost frightening to me how I reacted to not having the possibility to shoot. I guess that is indicative of my life...an optimistic yet frantic and well mannered panic that I am going to miss something or never be in a certain place again. I walked back to the hotel to charge up the batteries on this tiny camera and had to laugh - luckily I was able to sell the camera when I got home and it all worked out alright, but regardless thats the backstory to these photos.
Enjoy.

I like your slide shows, but I miss your clever captions. You could use a disposable camera and get great shots!

shots #6 and #16 = totally worth it to buy that camera.

Excellent job, some beautiful photos. Did you really clean you room to Yanni?

You were able to use a Nikon?

Enjoyed the pictures! I've been trying to figure this out and I'm sure it's less complicated then I'm making it...how did you create a slide show on here?

There are probably a few different ways to put them on your blog, but the way I do it is: I build the slideshow in a program called Soundslides and then upload it to a free web host service. There is an online Soundslides Embed Utility (google search this and you can find it) that will convert your slideshow into HTML that you can put directly into a post. Without hosting the the slideshow i am not sure how to do it.

They are great pics... it makes me miss good ol' HD

I don't think it is silly of how you reacted- photography is important to you and so much a part of who you are.
