The Open Road and the Grey Sky

Ah, September 2019 – a time when the world was a simpler place, and my biggest concern was whether to upgrade my Canon 5D Mk II or my Nikon D750. The real estate market was booming, and so was my photography business. On this particular day, I was driving from Germany to Luxembourg for a real estate photoshoot. The weather was as grey as a tabby cat, and raindrops danced on my windshield like a thousand tiny ballerinas. But hey, I was as happy as a clam at high tide.

The Move: From Luxembourg to Germany

Earlier that year, we had moved from Luxembourg to Germany. The transition was smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy. Luxembourg had been great, but Germany had its own unique charm. Plus, the real estate market was in constant growth, and my photography was flourishing like a well-watered succulent.

The Gear: A Photographer’s Delight

Let’s talk gear for a second. My Canon 5D Mk II and Nikon D750 had been loyal companions, but I had my eyes set on something newer, something shinier. And I was contemplating zero distortion with a Laowa 12mm 2.8 lens too. Ah, those were the days when gear envy was my only worry!

The Drive: Fast, Quiet, and Pleasant

Back to the drive. The journey was as smooth as a jazz playlist on a Sunday morning. The traffic was lighter than usual, and the rain seemed to be taking a break just for me. I was in my element, behind the wheel, cruising through the picturesque landscapes that separated Germany and Luxembourg. It was one of those drives where you forget about the destination because the journey itself is so darn enjoyable. OK, that’s mostly how it is for me.

The Photoshoot: A Day to Remember

I finally reached Luxembourg, and the photoshoot went off without a hitch. The property was a photographer’s dream-well-lit, spacious, and with interior details that made my camera sing. The booming real estate market was evident in every corner of the property, and I couldn’t have asked for a better subject to shoot.

The Drive Back: Reflecting on a Perfect Day

As I drove back to Germany, the sky cleared up, almost as if it were giving me a nod of approval. I couldn’t help but feel grateful for such a perfect day – a day where everything went right, from the drive to the shoot. It was a day to remember, indeed.

The Takeaway: Embrace the Journey

Life is a lot like that drive from Germany to Luxembourg. Sometimes it’s rainy and grey, but if you’re doing what you love, even the gloomiest days can be brightened. So, keep your eyes on the road, enjoy the journey, and don’t forget to stop and take some photos along the way. After all, you never know what beauty you might capture, even on a rainy day.
