So here's the explanations for my nomenclature on this page:
For the names
I kept it with Wikipedia entries, with namings on homepages of the communities or signs on the objects, with entries in Openstreetmap or Google Maps. Sometimes I did not find anything there, also nothing (yet) with further investigations, then the name begins with "some". In most cases I use the object's proper name first, then translate it in brackets (usually literally word part by word part); for castles, palaces and memorials I simply replaced that part of the proper name by the English word where applicable, and for common churches I just put in the saint's name to whom it is dedicated.
The names of the places
- by the pattern "community [urban district [if need be closer specification]]" (with [K]=core of the town [N], [SE], [W] etc.=principal directions) - are clickable, a new tab opens in Openstreetmap. Here is the center of the map
the position of the camera, the marker
marks the object. If there is more than one objects, I put the marker to the middle between them, if it's a city view, I put it to the market place.
The clothing status
describes how it was with the undressing in the respective situation. Hover the mouse above the line, and you will find the information written out in text. Generally
- 0 means that I didn't have anything on anyway.
- 1 means that I was naked and after the pictures I put something on.
- 11 means that I undressed for the picture and stayed naked afterwards.
- 2 means that I only undressed for the pictures, usually that was after activating the (serial) timer. A 2+ means that I took more than one series and did not put anything on in between (when viewing the results and setting the camera anew), a 2* that I ducked in between because of people passing by without any time left for putting clothes on.
- 3 equals 2, just more hectically because of many people around, most of these times only one picture per series came to be.
- 4 means that I only dropped the pants, but did not take them off completely.
Multiple numbers means that the respective event happened in the given order and frequency.
is a couple of pictures that came to be between activating and deactivating the serial timer. Usually I'm not yet in the first picture and not any more in the last. Shot
refers to a single picture taken with the normal timer or by hand.
For "The release was operated by"
- TL means time lapse, that's how the serial timer is called in my camera. It takes a picture three seconds after pushing the release button and then repeats in intervals (can't think of any exception from setting the shortest possible ten seconds) until the set amount of pictures is taken (or the battery is empty).
- ST is the normal self timer.
- RR is the remote release.
When I worked with a combination of these, there is a tooltip that explains it closer.
About my cameras:
The camera with the time lapse is a Panasonic DMC-TZ71 which I own since September 2015. Right after 9 months on the first bike trip I threw it to pieces, irraparably, one week later I bought a replacement (luckily with a guarantee extension), which I also damaged on the next bike trip, just to buy a third one for the repair time, so I did not have to fiddle weeks-long with the normal self timer.
Before, since 2008 at the latest, I mainly used a Panasonic DMC-TZ4 which already also has a 24-to-720-mm objective. Parallel with the first TZ71 I had bought a replacement, as the lens of my first one was scratched, which suited just fine with the first smashing of the 71, as I had it in the car not too far away from where I was. Only big disadvantage of this one is (apart from the serial timer missing altogether) that every single time
you you want to make a picture with the self timer, you have to tell it anew
Before the TZ4, I had a Ricoh Caplio G4 since September 2004, before that I exclusively photographed analog with the Olympus Superzoom 115, the Olympus Superzoom 140S and before that a cheap read Braun camera which got stolen from me in 2000 on a train.
The camera for which I have a remote release (okay, I could use my phone to operate my TZ71, but what for) is a DSLR, a Nikon D-3100 which I gave myself for Christmas in 2012 and which I use (too) seldomly, and much less on bike trips.
The camera with the double self timer is a Rollei Compactline 425 which I bought in February 2012 to have a camera with a bigger display than the Caplio to photograph the routes from my bike maps program and use them as poor people's navi (advantages: normal batteries, low energy consumption, the map is there instantly.). On the Saxony bike trip it had to serve as the normal camera for the washing pics on the last evening of the first week (and a few me-ands, of course).
