Working with a MacBook
It’s been over two years now since I switched to a MacBook. MacBook M1 Pro to be exact. I will write about the switch more someday, but just a bit today. The whole MacBook is just so strange. It’s either fast or pitifully slow. You would not believe how often I see the spinning ball cursor. Just saving a big enough file in Photoshop can make the whole system unresponsive.
And why is the SSD so slow? Saving a 1gb PSD taking a few minutes? Just why. And there is nothing else on the laptop, it’s just a Photoshop machine. Strange. I love how quiet it is and how it’s always on, but sometimes it’s just a pain. Maybe with 32 GB RAM, it would be better. But 16GB looks to be just not enough for Photoshop.
Different view of the Sky Park towers
And for today’s photo, a bit different view of the Sky Park towers in Bratislava. You can almost see all 4 in this one. The 4th is hiding behind the middle one here. I thought of moving the camera a bit to include it more, but it’s still a construction site, so it would break the feel of the photo a bit.
Btw. the 5th one, would be on the right side here, probably not that far in the future, as there is already a big hole in the ground there. But it will be a bit different, as these four are private residences and the 5th one will be an office building.
I quite like what they are building here, as this whole area used to be industrial, if I remember correctly, there was a demolished factory here beforehand. So it was mostly ugly and empty before. You would have no reason to go there at all.
I also shared a photo on Twitter while I was taking this one, so you can see it here on the side. This was taken with the 12mm Laowa lens. It was blended from 4 photos. I had to take two bracket series here, as some people walked in front of my camera and I had to use the other set to remove them from the final photo.
