Camera: Canon EOS 450D | ISO : 100 | Focal Length: 55.0 mm | Aperture: 5.6 | Shutter Speed : 1/160


Yesterday I edited the pictures that I took on Sunday. There definitely were some nice ones in the bunch like the picture I posted yesterday or this one here. It was getting late already and the sun stood low. It made shooting quite difficult, because it was a little chilly in the shade and a bit too bright in the sun to take pictures. The only way to go was to turn the problem into the subject. The two of them were just as blinded as I was.

And now some geekery that might curl your toes:
My new theme doesn’t show the exif information for the picture, so I decided to extract it from the picture via exiftool and then copy and paste the line into the post. Exiftool formats the output with some spaces and line breaks though and I wanted to remove the line breaks and substitute them for pipes. In the end I came up with this command line geekism:

exiftool -Model -ISO -FocalLength -Aperture -ShutterSpeed FILENAME | sed 's/Model Name//g' | sed 's/ //g' | tr '\n' '|' | sed 's/|/ | /g' | sed 's/Model Name//g' | sed s/..$//

And yes, this was the wood chopping approach to bash scripting, since I was chopping the output into shape without any consideration for the code to be pretty or lean. And if you now say “What the …?” then don’t worry. There is really no need for this to make any sense whatsoever.

  3. Really good that you’ve got through the year. And I like the new theme (liked the previous one too!), especially since you’re doing so much b&w work at present. I haven’t commented on all of the ones I’ve just whizzed through and liked, but I’ll say here that you’re photography is really taking on a certain feel that’s unique to you — the aforementioned b&w, plus the majority of images being street (or train station) photography. It would be interesting to see what you’d be photographing if you still lived inthe Brighton/Lewes area!

  4. I have been meaning to mention how much I like your new theme, Ms. F…
    gray really seems to support nearly any image very well – and speaking of which, I really like the larger view, too (says the guy who is fond of posting thumbnail sized stuff)!
