Another lovers quarrel...these two are at it almost daily.


"All I said was you are lookin' a little "chunky" lately."


"Can we just cuddle and make up? I still love you even if you are getting chunky!"


Lesson here for you young guys......Never, not ever, answer a woman's question regarding her butt of her figure getting a little "chunky" in the affirmative. Honesty is not your best choice...and they have memories that make an elephant blush with envy.
I once told Mrs Rupert her butt was getting a little chunky...I think it was around 1972 and she still reminds me of it every so often when she gets angry with me.
Even if you have to use a forklift to take them dancing, never ever let on about their weight! This may be some of the best advice you young whippersnappers ever get!

Regards!

Yes....but that little girly dove will not forget anytime soon! Somewhere down the line, he will pay for that snippy remark!

No...and I'm afraid to ask...but I will?
Rupert is a slightly uncomplimentary term for an officer. The dummies that were parachuted into France around D-Day were called Ruperts.

OK. End of digression from me.

Its interesting how Pentax took care of the poorer edges (wrt Sony's inability to deal with it properly with their A7 series cameras. )
I have the A7 and the 36mp is on par at the least (wrt edges), and clearly better than the same lens used on the A7R (which had horrible edges because of the thick sensor stack).



Another shot with the K24/2.8 on K1

Loved the Doves, Rupert and AdrianM's little bird!

Need to find some feathers to snap soon!

Here's a few from Milan the other week..... All are 3 shot HDRs with LR processing. Sigma 14mm prime, I couldn't be bothered to carry the 15-30 this time!









K1 is an outrageous tool for these types of shots!

That's not so bad.....they weren't as dumb as it may have appeared...none of them died!
