Viking beads, a variety of materials. The cylindrical, metallic-looking piece at the lower right and near top center look like modern connectors for plastic tubing. The design seems totally anachronistic

I wish the little leafhopper had been in better condition. I found it on the floor of the bathroom, alive but rather moribund and therefore easy to capture. I planned to photograph it alive, but it was dead within an hour or so. It must have been injured in some way as its jumping legs were all twisted at odd angles, something I could not see without magnification. I glued it to a pinhead so I could manipulate its orientation more easily. This is one of two short focus stacks. The other was taken directly from the side.

Leaf hopper, just its head. Panasonic GX8 with reverse-mounted APO Componon 50mm f2.8 enlarging lens. The insect is very small, less than 3mm total length, possibly less than 2mm

Game from the Viking Era. It looks as though the goal it to occupy the central hole, which is circled, when your opponent cannot make a countering or canceling move

That is something I noticed when I was still going to a gym to work out (last visit there was January 2020). There are cross-trainers from several manufacturers at the gym, and switching to a different brand felt, in some cases, profoundly different. The elliptical motion was different, working my leg muscles in a different way. Even switching between identical units of the Precor x-trainer I could detect a difference in the amount of effort required with identical settings for leg-lift and resistance. After seven months without using a x-trainer, getting onto the SOLE unit I bought was like starting to exercise from scratch. The foot rests felt the strangest. The angles it required of my feet were significantly different and it took several weeks for my feet to adjust.

Rule of thumb: If it's good for, it won't be easy. If it's bad for you, piece of cake (which also isn't good for you)

Bite your tongue. He's a drummer, and the medal he's wearing indicates is good at it, although others in this youth band had multiple medals pinned to their uniform.

Now the question is, did the Xiser improve your physical condition after just a short period of using it, or did it leave you with more energy reserves because it did not work you out as hard?

Exercise machines are somewhat like face masks worn during the pandemic = the more comfortable they are, the less good they're doing. ;):rolleyes:

Before the pandemic I was doing two miles on a Precor X-trainer in under 26 minutes with no rests to catch my breath. After 9 months of not being able to go to the gym and no sign of getting back to it I purchased a SOLE X-trainer on which, after almost two years of using it, I feel quite exhausted after doing just one mile in under 16 minutes always with a brief rest to catch my breath after 3/4 of a mile. I blame the pandemic and a nine-month interruption in my exercise routine (at my age, what you lose is pretty much impossible to recover). On the other hand, is the SOLE machine working me harder? I find that difficult to believe, although an attractive excuse.

Three images from Tivoli Garden, two of a classic spinning chairs ride, and one (of many that I took) of a youth marching band. The ages of kids in the band must have ranged from pre-teen to 19 years as the boys (I did not see any girls) looked near adult to barely big enough to hold their instrument. Sony rx10m4, a remarkably versatile and satisfactory travel camera. Notice the boy toward the left who seems to be peering at me over the shoulders of taller boys between us.

The 50mm f2.8 Color Skopar was in production for many years. It's a four-element lens, probably a Tessar or Tessar-like formulation. That means good contrast and color, good sharpness at the center even wide open but soft at the edges until stopped down to around f5,6 to f8

I suspect one of those bodies with a pancake lens would fit a cargo-pant pocket, BUT, I strongly recommend looking at a Sony RX100m6. It's a bit pricey and the lens is not good good in low light, but the 1" 20mp sensor and the excellent 24~200mm FF equivalent lens deliver amazing IQ for such a tiny camera. I've posted numerous images on PF taken with this little jewel of a camera.

Nice image. Unexpectedly engaging considering the subject. Good eye to see it as something visually interesting.
