I never really did any album-reviews on here but ever since I turned my iTunes-view to album, thus creating a colorful wall of album-covers whenever I start iTunes, I really started appreciating albums as a whole.
Friends of mine gave me an iTunes card for my birthday, be it on one condition: I had to buy to buy Nebraska, a 1982 album by Bruce Springsteen, with it. And so I did and it’s € 6,99 damn well spent. Nebraska is one big roadtrip on a sometimes slow and dreary and other times smooth and up-tempo road. A combination of accoustic guitar, Springsteen’s deep, enchanting voice and the occasional hint of harmonica make this one of the best albums I’ve heard in years.
Got two new lenses today. First off the Sigma 10-20mm: I had seen it in action multiple times as many of my Flickr-buddies had it. It’s just an amazing little lense that offers a real “bigger picture”. I’ll post some more shots as soon as I get the chance to head out with it. The second one isn’t as exciting but worth mentioning nonetheless: I got a bargain on a mint-condition second hand Nikon AF 70-300 (originally manufactured for the analog F-series camera’s) so I can get just that little closer to the action on my next soccer-assignment.
