Under the Margaret Bridge

Under the Margaret Bridge The Margaret Bridge is quite a unique bridge in Budapest, as it’s a three-way bridge. Connecting not just the two sides of the Danube, but also Margaret Island. And this is actually the view from the Island, from under the bridge. It’s also a very yellow bridge, with many yellow lights. That actually not that unusual as almost all of the historical buildings in Budapest have very strong yellow lights. You can see them in the background here. It makes for a very cool night cruise on the Danube, but also for a very hard time taking any night shots. This one is a blend ..read more

Evening vertorama from Lyon

Evening vertorama from Lyon Continuing with more photos from my archive. There are more than 100 000 photos there, so usually I find something to edit. But not always. This one is from 2016 from a summer trip to Lyon, France. I still remember how hot and sunny it was, that it was hard to stand in the sun. Surprisingly, in this photo, I did not have to remove anybody. When I was there in the evening, there was not a single person there. This is the Basilica of Notre Dame of Fourvière on the hill above the city, and while there are many tourists during the day, the night is more calm, and empty ..read more

Vineyards around Spitz

Vineyards around Spitz Let’s continue with a photo of vineyards from the Wachau Valley in Austria. This is actually a view from the top of the Hinterhaus Ruins, in the town of Spitz, on the Danube River. It’s actually one of my recommended spots for photography in the area, as are many spots on the hill you can see in this photo. There are almost no fences around, so it’s overall a very nice area. I took this panorama on a very hot summer day. I was there to get a photo of a passing ship (similar to one I posted a few days ago) so I could not choose a better time. I had to follow the schedule ..read more

Inside the Liverpool Cathedral

Inside the Liverpool Cathedral While writing yesterday’s post, I remembered my visit to another huge religious building, the Liverpool Cathedral. I have been there actually twice, but both times already years ago. But I thought to myself, if I edited one of the photos I took then, would it still look good? So I did it. I looked through my photo archive from 2010 when I was there. I still had a Canon 450D at that time, and I used it with a Sigma 10-20mm f3.5 lens. It’s funny to use photos from such a camera, as it’s only 12.2 Mpix, and if you have a 4K screen, you can almost see it 1:1 all at ..read more

The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi

The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi Today I chose an interior shot from the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. It really is an impressive structure. Outside and inside. And you can take photos, which is just great. But it’s also quite difficult for me to edit photos from here. Never sure how they should look. There is a mix of natural, yellow, and white (a bit bluish) lights all over the place. And on top of it, most of it is white or shades of grey. I never know if I should leave it more yellow-colored or push it more white. But in the end, usually, I wouldn’t say I like both. So ..read more

Where the ships are docked

Where the ships are docked Let’s change the country again. So for today, let’s visit Portugal. To be exact, this is the small town of Barca de Alva. It’s right at the border of Portugal and Spain, and it’s also a turning point for many river cruise ships that cruise on the river Douro in Portugal. I took this photo while staying on one of those ships. It was a very hot summer night and I took a walk across the bridge (Ponte Almirante Sarmento Rodrigues) to get a bit of fresh air and enjoy the calm evening. The bridge also looks very nice, with its reflection, which you can see in this photo ..read more

Love locks in Amsterdam

Love locks in Amsterdam Let’s do a bit simpler photo today. So no panorama, no HDR, just a single exposure (that I of course split into two and blend them back together :)). These are some love locks I found on one of the side streets in Amsterdam. I was taking a photo of the reflection in the background, and I thought it would look nice as a foreground element. I’m wondering. Is the trend to put these love locks on every bridge, and sometimes even statues and other monuments, still alive, or it’s gone? Have not seen anyone doing it in a very long time. The post Love locks in Amsterdam app ..read more

Blue hour at the Matthias Church

Vision Pro So what did you think about the WWDC 2023 presentation? I think it was ok, but not impressed by many things. Of course, I already installed all the beta updates, and I really like the Snoopy watch face. But other than that, all the updates were very iterative, like Apple is scared to do drastic changes. It’s a bit depressing that the overall UI of smartphones (and also PCs) have not changed in over 15 years. I can’t believe that there is no possible advance in this field. I do miss Windows Mobile, as that was just better. But given how Apple just keeps taking things from it (and And ..read more

A nice city walk in Paris

WWDC 2023 What are your plans today? Mine is to watch the WWDC 2023 presentation from Apple. As you may have seen in my Desk Setup post I use quite a few Apple devices currently, so it’s nice to see what’s coming up. I’m especially curious about the AR/VR glasses, as all the ones I tried until now made me dizzy. Maybe they thought of something that fixes this. And I also like to use the beta version of all the software. Not even sure when was the last time I had a regular final version installed on any of my PCs or mobile devices. Maybe I’m just used to it since I work in software development ..read more
