0.6sec @ ƒ2.8, iso 80, 6.3 (28mm)

I forgot how many things I (still) own from the new apartment: the bicycles and bike rack, my mom’s paintings from Japan, the Sharp Aquos LCD TV set is in now in the bedroom, the component rack in my dad’s house, the Plexo light in storage, and the speakers are in a pile of stuff to go to Goodwill (the DVI cable and eating tray were already given away). The strange cabling was because I snaked an extra-long DVI cable down from my girlfriend’s PowerMac G5 upstairs so she could show wedding video montages to her clients.

This was my first time using my just-purchased Panasonic Lumix camera in a very low light situation. I may have pushed the optical image stabilization a bit too far, surprisingly, even though it is at the native ISO, the RAW file has a lot of noise by today’s standards. Yet back then, when I felt the delay of the exposure, I was shocked that I had a usable image at all. And 28mm and 16:9…oh, that sweet, sweet wide angle!

I miss my cat.
