Blue Jay, in snow, Central Park, NYC.

Camera info in the Exif, but this is another shot with the glorious 150-600mm Tamron lens at full zoom.

In order to change the colour of certain elements of Dialogs (like the buttons) it is necessary to override the default style of the Dialog. Now, using AppCompat for support through the ages I naturally inherit my dialog style from Theme.AppCompat.Light.Dialog. However, what I get on fairly old (yet strangely widespread) phones is what you see in the lower left corner. A white background behind my dialog. On Lollipop everything looks just fine.

Ok, fine, I'll just change the android:windowBackground to transparent - that fixes the problem on the old phones. Unfortunately this parameter seems to have been repurposed in new Androids to give me what is shown in the upper right corner.

Of course, this can easily be fixed with version specific themes, but let's just agree that this shouldn't be a problem to begin with...

Note: The small graphical glitch in the upper right picture is not because of the background, but me removing a meeting that shouldn't be shared.

Step 1: Call support.
Step 2: Get redirected to advanced support.
Step 3: Wait in queue...
Step 4: An automatic quality questionnaire from the support queue calls me while I'm waiting in for step 3 to be done.
Step 5: Dismiss call on watch.

So what happens?
1. My call to the advanced support queue gets hanged up.
2. I get to talk to the quality questionnaire that I tried to dismiss.
3. It's now too late to get to talk to advanced support because their queue is now closed.

My friend, who is still struggling with the technical details of photography, went here to upgrade her lens to one more sensitive to light. She told the clerk she needed this to photograph at events. However, they didn't have what she needed, but through a very convincing sales pitch she got the spectacularly bad advice to upgrade to a slightly better lens with a more limited zoom and the exact same f-stop. At great cost. This is one of the more expensive brick and mortar stores in Copenhagen, and if you can't go there when you are unsure of what you need you are better off shopping online or at least somewhere else. A single star added for reversing the deal when we came back 20 minutes later.

An adventure into the world of seafood. Try the seafood special! €27 is expensive for an appetizer, but it's worth every cent. Great atmosphere, competent waiters. If you're willing to spend a little extra, this won't disappoint!

Went there for lunch. The very nice waiter recommended the daily special, a New York strip steak sandwich, which I ordered. The sandwich smelled incredibly spoiled and I had to send it back. Ruined my appetite completely. They have a very impressive milkshake menu, including classics such as bacon pancake flavour or captain crunch. I chickened out with a caramel, which was ok, except for the ending which most of all resembled butter. I won't be coming back.

Fairly expensive, but they serve the best cocktails in town, and the service is always top of the line!
