I was finished early at the Nokia / Carl Zeiss workshop in Aalen today. I decided to go back to Stuttgart and see if I could get my car a day early to head over to Prague. As it turned out, they could not get me the car, which meant I would be stuck out here for the day.
I sat in my hotel room (who am I kidding… i slept) and did some work. Around 7:30 I got tired of feeling bad about being here. I thought to myself “The Stadtbibliothek (municipal library) is right in the Schlossplatz (main square). They close at 9. I can either sit here and just be grumpy, or head out there and see if I can make a shot.
Got on the DB – headed to Stuttgart Hauptbanhof. Getting there, I ran full tilt to the library. I made it there with 8 minutes to spare. Went up to the middle of the place and shot this on a D800. 24-70.
Walked out and made some other shots a the Schlossplatz – stuff I wouldve never gotten had I just sat here and whined about it.
Move. The difference between having a picture and not is how motivated you are to going out there and getting it.
