That's not what I see......I see an old guy in a Jeep with his fine looking hat and a new passenger that needs warming up. I'll let you guys know how it works out.....

Our lake is drying up, and exposing all kinds of strange artifacts (Canon SD1100 IS):

...I wouldn't get to close to that thing Paul.......it looks like it could grab you an suck you into that mouth on top.

Lake Granbury is almost dry in many spots.....this used to be acres of water, just dirt now.






Never seen Grapevine so low.....I remember when it was a new lake, and full to the brim.

Regards!

Bad craziness. Good pics guys. A bit worrisome though I must admit.

Sorry I haven't been posting here Rupert. Been busy testing my new camera before the return period runs out.

Here is an iPhone grab I got while out on a walk one day:

Mr Bassie...after all the great shots you have posted with the X30, if you send it back we will all try our best to have you committed to an insane asylum!

Regards!

I'm not sending the X30 back. I couldn't if I wanted to as I am beyond the return period. I'm talking about my other new camera that is not to be otherwise mentioned in this particular thread.

That's good news Mr Bassie, for a minute there I thought you had lost your mind! You can mention your other cameras here, we are not hostile in this thread to any camera....we may be biased for Toy Cameras, but all cameras are good to have...I'd love to own one of all of them! That's probably all that is keeping me from being a Pro shooter....I just don't have the right camera?

Regards!

A Quick Snap of my Toy Camera after it got a new hand strap - Original Gordy Camera Strap. I have to say i am very impressed with the quality and it looks niiiice
No Wonder why Gordy's hand straps are so popular!



And the Snap is taken with another Toy Camera - my Lumia 920

Yeah, sad to see for sure. It would take an enormous amount of rain this winter to get it back to normal. The lake doesn't look too bad here, but you could probably wade over to the marina from this dock. Notice the steep incline on the ramp in the background. It's usually nearly horizontal. (Canon SD1100 IS)

Looks like a seriously good strap!
Here is my X10 as shot with my X20...this is a flimsy little strap, but durable enough. The case is my favorite and I use it for my X20 mostly....very durable and well made genuine cowhide.
BTW-If your hood is like mine you can screw in a filter...as I have here....a 52mm CP .....or any other you desire.

Damn! These are fine looking little Toy Cameras and in your hands they feel as solid as they look. Just makes you want to shoot them as much as you can!

Regards!

Paul...is that the fishing barge? We used to go to the Grapevine barge and fish all night when I was in High School.....I can't recall ever catching a thing but we had a ton of fun. We were banned from the fishing barge in Arlington, long story...but it had a lot to do with fireworks and beer.

Regards!

Nice case you have there, i got the Fuji one, it's really nice too.

Yes the strap is really nice and solid, I don't know if you know Gordy's, but it was well worth the wait to get it shipped over from US ( gordy's camera straps )

Ah yes, i forgot about the 52mm filter thread in the hood - thank you for the reminder

I (had) the genuine Black Fuji...gave it to Mr Bassie. I still have a Brown Fuji case, but prefer my Cowhide case because it smells like a cow, and being here in Texas, I love the great smell of a fine cow!

We have plenty of cows here in Texas!
