During this morning’s walk, I noticed several spiderwebs on various bushes, all saturated with dew. We haven’t had any appreciable amount of rain in several weeks, only hot weather, high humidity. The retention ponds are pretty low as well due to the heat and subsequent evaporation, but the ducks are making the best of it. It appears that the herons have moved on to find deeper water. Hopefully, now that summer is officially over, we can get some autumn-like weather…

Tim is a friend of mine. We met about 5 years ago. He’s a confirmed geek and proud of it. He has a Star Trek magnet on each side of his jeep. He had a Bernie Sanders magnet on his jeep, too, which I tried diligently to remove and discard, but he kept busting me! 🙂 Since I’ve known him he’s been talking about writing this book and that, getting published, etc. He writes almost daily. Like most authors, he’s…

During my evaluation of the Fuji X100T, I decided to take my Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark I (Wow! That’s rather cumbersome). As I walked along the sidewalk, there was a hawk perched on the telephone line. I took a few shots, then noticed that as I walked a little further, the sun could be seen above the treetops, so I framed the featured shot. At the time, I was wishing that I had brought along a longer lens, but then…

A couple of weeks ago, I watched my first-ever Apple product announcement. It took them about 3 hours to say what, in my opinion, could have comfortably been said in half that time. That said, I do understand that there “had to be” speeches, etc, to hype the launch. Got to keep the buying public needing, wanting, and loving your product. I popped in and out, listening here and there. Finally, when they got to the iPhone 7, I was…

Growing up in Akron, Ohio, we had a mail carrier for our neighborhood named Mike. From the time that I was old enough to recognize people, until I left home, I believe, Mike was our guy. Every Christmas, my mother would give him a Christmas card and $20 or $30 as a gift. Mike was the regular guy, but unpredictable. Some days we would get our mail at 11:00 AM, other times, 6:00 PM. We just didn’t know when he…

The other day, I mentioned a particular camera road that I’d been down. Then, I discovered that, lo and behold, there was another road that I’d been down, too – the 1″ sensor road. Anyone remember the Nikon 1 V1? That was Nikon’s early 1″ sensor camera. The current version is the V3. I wrote about it here. I rented one, gave it a whirl, and decided that, though I liked the image quality, it just wasn’t pocket-sized enough and…
