May recap

by ada

Although I have extreme difficulties to recall anything that happened to me four months ago, because my life feels completely different now than it did in May, I still haven’t given up on getting back to blogging regularly. Hope is the thing with feathers, you know.

So, according to my memory card, in May I…

…took the elevator to the top of the Stephansdom to visit Austria’s biggest church bell, the Pummerin…

Untitled 83

…went to see the castle of Liechtenstein:

Untitled 43

…walked in the footsteps of Constanze Mozart in the Kurgarten of Baden (where she fled every time she didn’t want to perform her SAHM duties):

Baden 60

…celebrated the end of the war that killed six million people:

Fest der Freude 35

…visited Milo and Móricka:

MM 2

…had the first campfire of the season (which turned out to be an extraordinarily stressful family affair, but that’s what you get with two toddlers around a fire, I guess):

Untitled 70

…travelled back to Vienna…

Untitled 79

…to enjoy the sunshine…

MQ

…and to have fun:

…had the first ice coffee of the year (with an ex-coworker, who came to visit me for a day from Linz):

…admired sea animals:

Haus des Meeres 91

…gave a concert with the choir of the hospital:

concert 2

…spent a lot of time in good company museums:

…saw lots of fellow nurses lying on the pavement of the Mariahilfer  Straße in the hope of more money a better future…

Pflege am Boden 3

…which the next generation also seems to be genuinly interested in:

Pflege am Boden 7

…visited a lot of churches…

Untitled 38

…walked home in the Viennese dawn after playing the recorder at the Taizé prayer until 4.30 am:

Donaukanal

…spent my last day working in this hospital (I have told you: I love to quit jobs):

On the last evening of May, while biking through the Hofburg from my soon-to-be apartement to my old place, I finally became perfectly content with living in Vienna. Little did I know that if you happen to have run into the most unreliable real estate agent of the whole city, a single day is all it takes for everything to change. But it is another story, the story of my June, which I will share in the unforeseeable future soon.

Wien – the ground beneath my feet

by ada

Eventually I will speed up posting and will get back to real-life schedule (or so I hope – mountain autumn is already on its way with its neverending sessions of rain that are so perfect for sitting at home, drinking coffee and editing photos), but for this summer I prefer living my present life to documenting my digital past. So if you are interested in what I’m doing right now and where (rather than what I did three months ago, haha), you can visit my instagram. It is very poorly managed (I’m not a big fan of filters), but still much more up to date than this abandoned blog, on which time stopped around the end of May.

lens test (Sony Alpha DT 50mm F1.8 SAM)

by ada

Somewhere around the middle of April my kit lens gave up on its focusing skills. I was already contemplating buying a new one for a long time, I just couldn’t justify giving out money. Since making decisions isn’t my prime skill, it took me weeks to pick the new lens (out of the two that were available for Sony cameras in my price range, haha). I got the 50 mm f 1.8 lens because it was cheap I want to learn from scratch. Here are the first photos I took with it, along with some thoughts on my experiences (I’m now using it since one month).

Pros:

  • it takes very nice photos under less than ideal light conditions (dusk, night, inside)
  • really good for portraits
  • it was really cheap – like 88 GBP on Amazon

Cons:

  • the large aperture, that allows the low-light photos to be so nice makes the lens literally unsuitable for bright daylight use. I need some ND filters, asap
  • it is very tight – I should have known that, because it is a portrait lens. Unfortunately, for me a portrait lens is A Lens That Makes Nice Portraits – while, in reality, a portrait lens is A Lens That Is Unable To Cover Any Other Subject Than Portraits. I crept on dirty grounds like those cool wildlife photographers do while shadowing lions, and still could not get the tiny castle of Liechtenstein on the picture in whole. I don’t miss the zoom of the kit lens, but I do miss its width
  • it is not suitable for macro photos
  • I expected it to be sharper than it is
  • unrelated, but I really hate the way my Sony camera autocorrects color saturation. My fault – I should finally start to use modes other than intelligent automode

Anyway. I am slowly, very slowly, but actually learning some things about photography. All we need is just a little patience, haha.
