Hopefully, The Rolling Stones won’t mind my borrow a little from them with my title. I follow Robin Wong’s blog. I like his street photography portraits as well as his write-ups about Olympus gear. He’s an Olympus Malaysia employee, is a fan of Olympus equipment, and enjoys what he does. His gear reviews are the types that I like to see. They are not scientific; simply put, they are “man on the street with the camera” types of reviews; however…

I’m special I took quite a few photos while walking in what passes for winter around here. In fact, we had close to a foot of snow. This was the most snow that I’d seen since I’ve been living in Charlotte. However, out of all of the photos that I took, this was my favorite one. This one, I didn’t go looking for, per se. I didn’t have to think about it. For the most part, the day had been…

I saw these folks when I went for a walk this afternoon. The dog was pretty excited about it and stopped by to greet me before continuing with giving his sleigh ride.

I thought, though, if it is cleaning, it’s not doing a good job. As I got closer, I saw the…

I’m not a big fan of bells and whistles and usually the first thing that I do is turn all of that stuff completely off, beeps, bells, auto-focus assist, facial recognition (well, I did turn that back on) etc. Also, I will admit that I’m not known for reading user’s manuals from cover to cover. I am in no way surprised that I had overlooked this feature. I just happened to run into it on a blog post somewhere. If…
