I had one hour free before visiting Municipal and that was enough time to explore some interesting places in Theatro Municipal surroundings.
Arriving there I took my camera, looked around to see what angle would give the perfect photo and when I finally clicked the shooting button…Surprise!! I had no memory card inside the camera. I just did the stupid thing of forgetting my SD card inside my notebook when downloading photos earlier that day. I couldn’t believe this was happening to me.
I was so disappointed, but as I was already there, I snapped some photos with my cell phone.
But what I would do next? I couldn’t photograph the guided tour in Theatro Municipal with my cell phone, at least I definitely didn’t want to. After all, one of the purposes of taking the guided tour was to practice taking photos on interiors using my DSLR in the manual mode.
I had to think quick! So I ran to a store some blocks away to buy a new memory card in time for the guided tour.
And I managed to do it and still got 40 minutes left before the guided tour begin.
I decided then to visit a Cultural Center just next to the National Library, Centro Cultural Justiça Federal, to attend a photo exhibition they were showing there, but this visit I will tell you in another post!
One lesson I learned from this episode: If you dont´t want to have unpleasant surprises in a photograph session, double-check battery and memory card in your camera before leaving home.
Have a nice week!
