I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t cheat again. There is the last photo of September too, unedited, the last in the gallery, but there is a whole bunch of others as well.
You see, I figure why leave you alone with one terrible photo if I can add a few that happened before this last one in order to project you the last evening with my uncle before he returned to Slovenia yesterday.
We finally went to his favourite bar around here, Bi-Bar in Porto Ercole, only to discover their beautiful platform above the sea (as showed in this post) closed, and a makeshift, smaller one next to it in operation. Still, he was happy with his unfiltered Ichnusa (beer from Sardinia) and nuts, and I was happily testing my new old camera with mixed results, as you will see. And with the best gelato around here.
I took many shots from the same spot by the table, pressing buttons, rolling rollers, feeling like a monkey, thinking that I might indeed search out some tutorials on aperture and shutter priorities, so that I can at least be able to distinguish between the two. The featured shot is the result of this testing: f/4.8, 1/25 sec for the win.
The last three photos remain as taken. The last photo is the last in September, only taken because uncle said that it would make a nice photo, while I had my doubts.
Here are the rules and they are simple:
1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 30st September.
2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do.
4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments.
5. Tag “The Last Photo”.
This day in my blogging history
2015: Thursday Doors from Križanke in Ljubljana with the poem by Srečko Kosovel “A Small Coat” which years later Patti Smith chose to recite at her Trieste show:
I would like to walk around
in a small coat of
But hidden underneath should be
a warm, bright world.
What is wealth?
What is luxury?
For me it is this:
a small coat I have,
and this coat is like
