Single in January 2020

I still like my old Lumix G10, with the 20mm f1.7 Lumix lens. Tiny kit, super easy to use, sharp images with a nice look to them

... but I don’t like using it anywhere near as much as I do my KP - or even the K-30 before. Even if the pics were as good technically/IQ-wise (which they’re not), I think the enjoyment of the process is a big part of why we use these big cameras instead of our phones - even for simple snaps.

(Though it sounds like you’re enjoying using the Fuji too.)

Don't even get me started on how enjoyable handling a medium format camera is. I'm in love.

I started reading and thought ..."hold on, isn't that......" Quite appropriate really, given the sad passing of terry Jones today. As for my confession, think of it as a reset. I have been eating at a Michelin star restaurant all this time and for some reason my constitution needed a dodgy kebab. All better now, I can't wait to get my KP on

What an exciting morning!

The gastroenterologist I was working with collapsed (requiring CPR) half way our second case - so I was rather busy for a while.

BUT....once the dust had settled I went to my office to pick up an eagerly anticipated parcel. There was no difficulty deciding what to photograph today

The lady of the lake probably lobbed that Fuji to him. It probably weighs as much as a duck ,as well.

Yes, sad to hear of the passing of Terry Jones. THat rhymes with stones, I wonder what operation Sandy's surgeon was undertaking?

Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing cameras is no basis for a system of photography. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the lenses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.



No, I don't remember the movie word by word. As always I cheat The script has been available in internet since 90's. Nowadays even the full movie is available in Youtube. I did watch it again yesterday

I can see it now, as I reach for my Pentax, a hairy little man will pop up and say "...you must answer me these questions three before the other side you see...!" If I get the swallow question I am golden

Greatest comedy would be safer bet and no matter about language, thought I know that many rank Life of Brian above. Fools...

I sit corrected although, to be fair, I was on top of a hill, quoting from memory, as I jogged along, banging my coconut shells together, .......... the ones the swallow can't possibly have brought! Anyway, I think I deserve a little more respect given my evident regal status, predicated by the fact that I don't have s**t all over me
