A few years ago, I made it down to the Bund to take some night photos. Those photos were all lost to my hard drive failure back in 2012. It was really cloudy, and I wasn’t able to get a great shot. Below is my remaining “copy” of the photo I took back then…
This time around, I was able to make it back during the day. It was a long trip down there from where I was staying which was WAY out of town in West Shanghai….the suburbs. It took me about an hour to get there via the Metro (subway). My shot during the day was not that great (see below), so I took the subway back into town at night. I left the hotel at 8:45, and made it down to the Bund at around 9:45. I then walked to the edge of the river where there were thousands of people taking selfies by the railing. I patiently waited for my turn at the railing to take a shot….just when I got to the railing after patiently waiting my turn, the city lights went out!!
What?? I thought the lights went out at around 11:00 pm….wrong. Apparently, during the week, the lights go out at 10:00 pm. A wasted trip. Needless to say, I was NOT a happy camper.
Something wrong with my new Sony A7Rll
A couple of things….
1. Not sure if you can see it, but it is REALLY obvious to me….there are these vertical, slanted lines on the upper right side of the photo (in the sky). See that?? WTF?? Maybe something on my sensor?? Not good.
2. I was switching lenses, and something happened to the mount on my camera as the lens would not “snap” into place….something got bent in there….
So, my camera is going to the shop….I will have to use my old cameras for awhile until this one is repaired….Do you see the lines I am talking about????
