Mark Graf ‘highly encouraged’ me to do this list, so here it is. I went back through the 7500+ photos that I took this year. Many of them were just walking-around photos. Photos that I took while on my walk through the neighborhood. Overall, I didn’t travel to many places this year, but I was out and about a lot. I went to: 1. Ohio – 3 times. 2. Mexico – 2 times. 3. Seabrook Island, SC – 1 time…

Rather than to post my favorite pictures of “2013″, or come up with some list of things, I thought that I’d just talk about the construct of time a little bit. A boy was walking along, found a shiny penny, picked it up, showed to his father and proudly exclaimed it to be his lucky penny. His father replied: In a universe in which past, present, and future came into existence all at once, complete from beginning to end, with…

It’s been raining or a couple of days now, and since it didn’t appear as if it the rain was going to stop anytime soon, I decided to become one with the rain. I donned a raincoat, put on my Neos overshoes, and headed for the stream. When I got there, it was just about as I expected. The normally placed, just above a trickle stream was quite energetic and there were several new ‘tributaries’ that had formed as the…

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…
