Things a photographer should a.) never do and then b.) never admit to doing: taking a camera with a dead battery out with them. Which means that I ended up lugging a heavy camera with me around Madrid for six+ hours and didn’t get to use it once and that begins to feel more like weight lifting than photography. Thank goodness it’s the 21st century and we have smartphones to help us out, right?
This weekend was spent almost entirely in Madrid. Between going out Friday evening, meeting up for lunch and a long walk Saturday and then a picnic on Sunday, I’m starting to get to know central Madrid quite well. Which means I’m not quite as lost which means that fear of ‘no one will ever find me ever again’ is starting to wear off a bit. As you can kind of note from this post, I like the buildings in Madrid. Like, a lot. I’m one of those people who walk around looking up and then almost running into garbage cans or light posts. Whoops!
Things I will do while living here: take my camera, my 70-200mm and go back here to shoot the sunset. Because it’s absolutely stunning and my phone really didn’t do it any justice, whatsoever. I mean, I’ll have to battle the 234809834 other people with their tripods and cameras, but that’s half the fun of it, isn’t it?
Great things: finding your favourite kit in a souvenir shop. I’ve been looking for this kit for almost a year because I was that idiot who bought the away kit that season. I didn’t end up buying it (this time), but next time this baby’ll be mine and I can move on to the next thing to search obsessively for.
Things I’m Loving:
+ This media kit for your blog post – (Annnnd: part II)
+ Frame wall – (One day I will have this.)
+ DIY camera straps – ( The painted or stamped ones have to be my favourites.)
+ This recipe – (For a snack.)
