night of the baronette claxophone

dinner at a Greek restaurant still there, finishing off the drinks facing west facing east

Took these this evening from Stadt am Hof in the closing hours of this weekend’s jazzfest. Mostly I was trying to see if I could do night scenes properly with this camera. I took them all either with the camera resting on our sidewalk dinner table or from the rail of the bridge. I think if I cough up another €30 or so and buy a tripod (Zacharias is showing two models at that price in their windows) I’ll be in good shape, equipment-wise for our cruise this fall. I am also interested to compare photos taken with the camera’s “night scene” automatic settings with my own tweakings of ISO equivalency, shutterspeed, white balance, etc.

That’s all well and good, you might say, but what the heck does “baronette claxophone” mean? Wish I knew. Like so many phrases which escape my mouth without my permission, this one might have been influenced by any or all of the following factors:

  • It’s been awfully hot here this weekend.
  • I was really hungry this evening.
  • The beer really hit the spot.
  • Up the road a bit from where we were sitting, we heard some klezmer-esque music being performed out in the street.

What's your take on it?
