214 - Fiesta in Blue



This was my first image in the morning and I’m glad I made it then, because weather-wise the day deteriorated rapidly and when I left work I needed an umbrella.

I have no idea what language that is on the cover of the spare tyre. Must be something like Thai, but I am not at all sure. Any idea? Even what it means?

From yesterday evening I still had the Sigma 30/1.4 mounted, and that’s what I used, albeit at f8.

On her album “Take a Look” Natalie Cole sings a version of the Count Basie standard “Fiesta in Blue” that basically is identical to the Lambert, Hendricks & Ross version on “Sing a Song of Basie”, she even sings Jon Hendricks' lyrics. I mean, she is good. The whole album is good, but you’d better not compare it to the original by LH&R. On the other hand: even Manhattan Transfer pale against them, so why shouldn’t Natalie?

Today and yesterday were you bike moments, eh? Such different images, yet each flaunts an explosive color palette which makes me murmur, "Whoa!"

BTW - I just ordered a bike yesterday, it's will be here Friday I think I am feeling quite European elegant....
