Though, technically, it’s not yet winter for another week or so, mostly all of the trees have shed their leaves and it’s sure giving a great impression of winter. Yesterday, I went to the lake. At this time of year it’s pretty frequent to see fog rolling across the water as the sun rapidly warms the air. Also, you get to view scenes that wouldn’t be visible at other times, such as the one above. Normally, the light is not…

I’ve enjoyed reading about Chris’s experience with renting and using Nikon’s new camera, the Df – a camera intended to be ‘retro’, rather than cutting edge. Overall, Chris really liked the camera, but felt that, for him, it was overpriced. It fact, that was his only issue with the camera. Price/value is a very personal thing. I think that it has to do with your upbringing, how much disposable income you have, and possibly, return on investment needed, and possibly…

I don’t do many reviews, and I most certainly wouldn’t even call this a review, but merely a glance at how I use this camera, as well as the OM-D, E-M5. I have both. For all intents and purposes, they are ‘nearly’ the same camera, based on what they can do. The big differences are (in my opinion based on what is important to me): 1. Ergonomics – how it feels in my hand. 2. Control placement. 3. Weather sealing…

I was walking along in the park and, to my left, I heard a noise, a rustling. That was nothing unusual as there are so many squirrels scampering about on any given day, not really trying to be quiet at all, or the occasional dear crashing through the woods in distance. I took a glance, heard the noise, but didn’t see anything. I stopped. I still didn’t see anything until I saw some leaves move, like they were tossed up…

The workday was finished. It was a good day, not stressful at all. The sun was heading towards the horizon and the clouds were moving in. I thought that I’d make a quick trip to the lake. When I arrived, there was only one other car in this particular parking lot. Inside of that car was a curious little poodle. She was quiet, just watching me. I left my car, walked to the lake. The clouds had completely covered the…

This post has been rolling around in my head for a while, but never found its way out. Then, today, I read Tom’s excellent post entitled: But, it’s on sale!. In his post he talks about marketing and buying more stuff, but he also talks about his, and his wife’s efforts to downsize. While I was in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. I met a couple, Will & Karen. They were taking beginning Spanish. During our breaks, and sometimes after…
