If you notice, the roof is clear in 1-3, but she coughed up her pellet (which I missed photographing) and it can be seen on the roof in 4 & 5.

No, nor are they normally this far south. She's been here in the neighborhood for 3 or 4 days.

Clearly my one-liner didn't land. Two things you should all know about me 1) I like to joke, and 2) I'm not funny.

Everyone was commenting on this beautiful girl. I wanted to make a post that seemed like that's where I was going, but then at the last second, reveal that I'm a photography nerd and comment on the fact that she wasn't holding the camera straight. See what I did there? Jokes are so much funnier when you have to explain them don't you think? (that's also a joke)

She is a lovely lady and these are great photographs, thank you for posting. Please ignore my intrusion.

Thank you for your kind words, Bertrand. I am back into primes right now. When I went out for my walk, I was looking for an owl that has been spotted in my neighborhood, so I took the 100mm macro lens - long enough, sharp, weatherproof, and lighter than a zoom. It resulted in some tight shots of structures and things that I might have taken more traditional compositions of if I had a wider lens or a zoom that enabled me to chose.

To greater or lesser degrees, I feel like I have photographed everything near me over the last 20 years or so. But, our normally vibrant city looks and feels different during Covid restrictions and it's prompted me to go for walks with my camera and revisit subjects thought to be previously over-photographed. The rain and the winter night added a little something to the mood, I think.

Some nature photos from an evening stroll last night. These were both taken more or less in the dark, but I'm happy with how they turned out.

I know that I am late to this discussion, but she is truly...and I mean this with all due respect...going to have to crop her horizon straight.

Great photo. It draws me in and makes me really want to be there.

I wonder why no one is surfing the outer break?

I don't know, but I would think so, I agree that it would have been the right choice. Not seeing an indication in my EXIF.

That is a cool insect. Nailing the perfect shot is WAY LESS important than just getting it when these come up...unless it's of bigfoot. I'm tired of out of focus, low light photos of bigfoot.

...but I digress...

I never actually played D&D, but the D&D character was referenced in the naming of this creature from Stranger Things. Thought of it as soon as I walked by that fallen tree.

Challenging the APS-C Flagship Series

I think there was miscommunication, I didn't mean to imply anything contrary to what you are saying.

My poorly articulated point is that I see the K7 - K5 - K3 to be an evolution of a specific camera line. I see the KP as a nice surprise that has appealed to and worked out great for people like you.


It is still an ASP-C and is in fact a better ASP-C (at image quality) than the most recently available camera in the line mentioned above, so I would have really liked to see those advancements released into a camera of that line, but they didn't make that option available. Therefore, I'm looking forward to the to-be-released camera.

The K7, K5, K3 are all more or less the same form factor, build quality and for the most part UI and ergonomics. Providence aside, I will copp to regarding them as evolution of an original design.

The KP is a little bit special and it was a surprise. I don't own one, but I think it's been a successful model. Certainly we have happy users here who are producing some great photos with it. Clearly they did not try to replace the K3ii with it because it didn't have things like dual slots and burst rate on par with the K3, so it was a different line.

I was one of the loud voices for bringing the upgraded ASP-C guts into a K3iii, but probably they weren't ready to compete with the KP and possibly they thought they could release the K-next sooner with more substantive changes. The pre-release photos of the new camera are entirely recognizable from the context of the K7-K3ii line and I'm really excited to see it come out and get tested. I won't go so far as to say that I am glad they didn't release a K3iii with the KP sensor and processor, because that would require admitting that I was wrong and that's just not something that I'm comfortable with.

Unless the new flagship is priced inappropriately or a flop in testing, I'm in. Whether I'll be a first adopter or not hasn't been decided yet, but I'm watching closely and getting the rest of my kit sorted in anticipation.
