To wish all members, associates, occasional browsers and extended family members of the foregoing a healthy, happy, peaceful and prosperous New Year.

To hope that you all find plenty of image taking and making opportunities to create the kind of pictures you like.

To hope that all photographic competition enterers find at least one judge who understands and appreciates their pictures.

No, no! The K-5 is a very fine backup camera!

Except for the fact that it carries the mark of the ayoH

Yeah, jac, sorta like!


btw, I use Bing instead of Google (slightly less world domination orientated) and every day the home page has a different image displayed.
Yesterday it was a portrait from Nunavut. Was it you by any chance?

(Ok, not a true story but it could have been! I do know some Finns.)

The pastor of a church we used to go to would often start a story and pause part way through, raise his hand and say "I swear if this story isn't true, it should be", then go on with the story.
