On another one my posts, Chuck said: Paul, because I carry ONLY my latest P/S Canon sx280HS, I am traveling light yet have many options. Took 4,000 shots in 18 days in Portugal and Spain. Have spent more than 18 days at the computer – so far – making selected shot exactly how I pictured them when I pushed the shutter. ~Combat Chuck My reply to that, before looking at the actual number, was that I doubt that I would…

Thanks to Cedric for letting me know! I had no idea that the subscribe to comments feature had become unavailable. I don’t visit my blog as a user, usually only as admin.

If you have any issues with it, please let me know. Now you won’t miss…

Thomas Merton A happy Thanksgiving to all. I sincerely hope that each of you can take a few moments to make a mental list of all that you have to be thankful for. Heck! Just by visiting this blog…

What people take on vacation with them to photograph is pretty much as varied as the photographer. However, sometimes I just cannot help myself to view the opinions of others and see how distinctly different those “Best” lenses to take on vacation can be. Not surprisingly, most of the lenses mentioned across various lists were zoom lenses, like the 28-300 mm Nikon. This lens, while having quite an impressive range is a it heavy, coming in at almost 2 pounds…
