As it turns out, I wasn’t! As I mentioned a few posts back, I had been looking at and thinking about a new camera. Eventually, I decided it against it. However, I still like to look. So, I was looking at the Sony A7R III, which is a full-frame mirrorless camera. Initially, I thought: How cool is that? Then, after looking at all of the glowing reviews, both in the written word and on video, I noticed that every one of…

The other day as I was walking down the street past a construction area, I saw a cloud of dust. My first thought was: What’s making that dust and can it make a good picture?! I continued for a few more paces and could hear what sounded like brushes on concrete. As it turned out, that’s exactly what it was! As I approached the cloud, I could hear the machine and the brushes, but could only see dust. The sun…

The temperatures have been at or below freezing for a few days. Today, I wanted to get out in the afternoon and have a walk in the park. There is a stream that runs through it and I wanted to see if it had been cold enough to freeze all or part of it. Fortunately, it has been. I was able to spend a few peaceful moments next to it, listening to the water flow beneath the ice. I took…

Nope. Not the country! I’ve not be there just yet, but, it is south of me: Columbia, SC. After Tom Dills mentioned Roadside America, I figured that I’d download the app to my phone and see what was up. The app is $2.99 and you get one free region with the app. Each additional region costs $1.99. At first, I was going to select the flyover states that I plan to visit as my free region, but then thought better…

When I awoke this morning, I made a quick check of the weather app on my phone. As I viewed the information, a small groan escaped my lips. This groan was similar to the groan that “happens” in the summer when I see that it’s 82 degrees and 100 % humidity. I know that it’s gonna be a sweat fest from the first step across the threshold. However, a sweat fest was certainly of no concern on this particular morning…

Well, not actually, same old camera, just updated to the latest version of the firmware 🙂 Happy New Year! The Olympus OM-D E-M1 (Mark 1) still lives and provides service! All of those ideas that I had tossed around about a new camera, etc, have faded into the background. Those were just G.A.S. cramps. You know, Gear Acquisition Syndrom. 🙂 After I started putting $$$ to it, I thought: That money can be well spent on my “flyover” project, visiting…
