Field Recording: "Wheres the Library"

The UPS gods delivered My Sony stereo recorder in the mail today. I am one excited soundie.

I threw some AA batteries in, tossed on the windscreen and went out to do my first field recordings with the D50. And what was my first adventure?

I attached my fresh new toy to my bike via a spring clamp and went off rocketing down the residential streets in search of something interesting (and to make a deposit in the bank to cover the purchase)

Sure enough just a few minutes down the road I encounter another pedestrian and we actually have a little bit of a conversation about how to find the local library.
