There’s a new kid in town, the Leica M-D. It’s billed as the purist’s camera, giving the photographer nothing but the essentials and the freedom to focus on creativity and capturing the decisive moment. Man! I love marketing! Basically, they’ve taken the M-9 digital camera and removed the LCD screen. They say that this “leads to more freedom for creative photography”. So, basically, this is similar to a film camera and it costs the same as M9, about $6,000 USD…

I was just looking back through some of my photos from Raj’s wedding. As a friend, I had the privilege of getting a behind-the-scenes look at the preparation. For the most part his nephew, Sid, helped him to get dressed, getting his hair just right, and whatever else he needed. He was a big help.

Last night, I was browsing Google Earth, seeing what was around my area. I noticed a small like that I’d never seen. So, this morning, before going to work, I set out to see what this lake was about. Unfortunately for me, the lake was a private lake. It was behind the gates at a gated community. As I drove back, circling around Lake Wylie, I noticed that there access to the lake was almost exclusively through some piece of…

When things are not too hectic at work, I will work from home on most Tuesdays and Fridays. There’s still work to be done, but top speed is not essential. Working from home I have a slower connection and smaller monitors, so lower throughput, but people aren’t asking for updates every 10 minutes! Today is one such day. I enjoyed a walk in the brisk morning air. It was about 10° C (48° F), a bit chilly and quite to…
