Bag sized

There are plenty of jokes around about women who go shopping for shoes, but then when they get the shoes, need a new bag, clothes, and accessories to go along with them. I wonder if photographers are not similar. It seems like that I’m always in the market for a new bag, a specific bag, the right bag for the occasion. Now, since I have an Olympus E-M1 and an E-M5 AND I want to take both of them with…

Tombstone, AZ As I review my photos, I get a laugh sometimes. Before I went to Arizona, I got into the same ‘conversation’ in my head about which camera to take. Finally, I squashed all of that chatter and decided to take the Nikon P-510 and my Olympus 35 LC, a circa 1967 film rangefinder and that’s what I did.

I’ve been thinking about this off and on, particularly when I look at the demise of my D2x as it sits, seemingly discarded, in one corner of the room. It rarely sees any use; however, it is still quite a capable camera. I know that quite a few of you will be able to chime in on this. It’s a curiosity of mine. When you buy new photographic equipment, specifically a new camera body, what do you do with the…
