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…

There are many scenes that I love from the movie Office Space, but this has to be one of my favorites (UNCENSORED). Though they didn’t show the brand, I’m sure, based on my recent experiences that this had to be an HP printer. If you’ve not scene the movie, these 3 software developers were extremely frustrated with this printer because it always gave errors whenever they tried to print. PC Load Letter? WTF does that mean???!!! ~Michael Bolton – Office…

Easy as floating on the lake.

I used to sell all of my used camera equipment on eBay; however, as fleaBay evolved, they became more and more buyer-centric, almost to the point where the seller had no protection from unscrupulous buyers.

One wouldn’t think that such an innocuous little invention, a selfie stick, could be so dangerous; however, according to this article, more people have died this year using a selfie stick (12 of them), as from shark attacks, 8. So, it would seem that the selfie stick is a lot more dangerous than a shark! Ā The most recent death, a 66 year-old Japanese tourist died from injuries from falling down a flight of stairs at the Taj Mahal. I’ll be…

Just in front of the rain

I took this picture last Friday, the last sunny day that we’ve had for a few days. I don’t mind the rain at all. In fact, I think that we needed it. I enjoy the cooler temperatures, low clouds, mist, foggy-ish mornings, all thingsĀ reminiscentĀ Ā of autumn. After the steady rain subsides, I think that it will be time to head back into the woods to have a look at all of the leaves on the ground. Last time, looking up, next…
