The extent of spread of Covid-19 depends on two factors:

1. How dense the populations is.

2. How dense the populations is.

Yes, even if it's odd for two reasons :
- Why trying to read the SD card while the camera is still off?
- The SD door will prevent the camera to turn on, yet, the SD card will be read as soon as it is inserted (with the door open, so the camera is actually powered).

Perhaps it's a way to really make the camera turning on really quickly when inserting a SD card, assuring it is read while you are manually closing the SD door and turning on the camera for real.

Anyway, splitting hair here. ;)

I believe the light shows processor activity.
The processor briefly reads the card's directory upon insertion just to know what is there.

Great stories from both posters.

I remember the local milkman, Glen, having a horse drawn cart and doing the exact same thing....the horse would plod along to the next house pulling the milk cart and stop and wait for the milkman.

Eventually in the later '50's the horse and cart were replaced by small Divco trucks, where the milkman had the option of standing up and driving to his closely spaced stops.

One of our dogs ...a border collie mix...would go to the top of the street and wait for the milkman at close to the time the milk truck would come to our street. The milkman would drive along, then stop, and say to our dog, 'wanna ride, Smokey' and Smokey would jump into the passenger floor area, no passenger seat was installed in the truck.

The dog would sit patiently looking out the open milk truck door (two piece folder door) until the milk truck arrived at our house, and then milkman and Smokey would walk up our front walk.

Back then , milkmen, etc. weren't just delivering a product, they were an integral part of the neighborhood and a friend to every boy and his dog. :D

It's been a stupid week over here that brings that comment into sharp relief. Before New York became a graveyard, thousands of people were on Florida's beaches. Many there to escape winter in their home state. They frolicked in the waves. Then they went home.

Ah, classic lack of journalistic checks - I did chuckle as well. I honestly don't know, but some people like to have tigers and lions, etc. Human condition. We have a place here in the city called reptilia (the death emporium). One green mamba. The only difference is if the snake escapes here, it's got a maximum of 3 months to live:

More or less the same as usual for me, as I work from home anyway, just I'll have my wife and daughter home as well.
Unfortunately that apple cider recipe comes a bit late to go and acquire equipment. I have a very heavily laden red delicious here. Oh well, apple pie, apple crumble, apple shortcake, roast pork with apple, for the next four weeks till I look as round as an apple.:lol:

Cheers. I have been in self isolation since I retired so no big deal there. Might do some Astro while I wait things out. Hopefully this situation will slow Musk's attempts to fill near Earth orbits with more junk.

My wife is able to work from home. Today, of all days, her work lappy decided to suck the kumara.

Take care all.

So much creative stuff.......

Just processing tomatoes here....

And trying our results

Both SMC K 30/2.8 on K1.... I'm loving the canon S screen for manual focusing.

Turns out there is almost no difference in our life (both been retired for 10 years.... living ruralish).... always have lots of food on hand anyhow (we process about 140lbs of tomatoes as an example). I did stock up on pizza flour, wood and beer though.

There's only one possible consequence of self-isolation: looking at bits of old photography gear and thinking: "Hmm, what it if was to . . . ?"

I've got this 1947 Kodak 50mm/3.5 that I converted to K mount a couple of years ago but have only ever used on digital APS-C. The Kodak 35RF that I took the lens off was too damaged to run a roll of film through, and I've never shot the lens on a film SLR until now. So I've decided to mount it on my old K1000 and find out how good that ancient lens really is (and it's GREAT on APS-C).

But it turns out that in the year or so since I last used the K1000 my eyesight has deteriorated to the point where I can't focus without a dioptre, so I've made one using the rubber eyecup from a long-dead *ist and the lens from a pair of cheap plastic reading glasses that I had available. ( Sorry these quick handheld snaps aren't great.)

At the moment I can still go out for a walk on the moor despite the social distancing, so I've loaded it up with a roll of ten year expired Fuji Superia 400 and hopefully I'll get some decent weather to try it in.:)

This photo was taken during our backcountry skiing expedition in really cold temperatures (-30degrees C during the day, -40C at night). My pentax camera worked without any problem at -30C, but at night it started to refuse taking shots sometimes ;) which is totally normal I think at -40C. The low sunlight during the whole day in north Finland is so magical!

A certain Native American chief was concerned that none of his three wives were producing children, despite his valiant efforts. He consulted a Wise Woman, who gave him the following advice. She said that he should let his wives sleep on cured animal skins, from different non-American animals. He therefore procured these items, and let his wives choose which skin they wished to sleep upon.

Happily, in the fullness of time, all three of his wives gave birth to healthy babies. The wife who slept on the Tiger Skin had a girl, the wife who slept on the Lion Skin had a boy, and the wife who slept on a skin from the Hippopotamus surprised the chief by producing twins, a boy and a girl.

Intrigued, he again consulted the Wise Woman, who explained :

'The Squaw on the Hippopotamus is equal to the sum of the Squaws on the other two Hides'.
