I use Eneloop Pro's (the black ones) and Ikea Ladda 2450's in mine, both types work very well. Charge them with the Panasonic BQ-CC17 black charger. Recommended.

As the saying goes, the best camera is the one you have with you. Driving down the highway I did not expect to be seeing a Great Grey owl just sitting on a post at the side of the road. I did have my trusty K200D with 18-135 close at hand, so was able to get a few images shooting through the passenger door window. It is my understanding that the slightly open wings are a behaviour to help with cooling off to prevent heat stroke.

Uncovering a sedimentary layer of 1980's Polaroids in my current round of photo sorting. This one could fall under a few different themes here in the forums.

Yours truly reading the instructions while opening the M28 2.8 that I had just purchased in August of 1982. Image shot by my wife in a Westmount, Montreal apartment we were borrowing from a family friend while on our honeymoon.

Sorting through old prints and negatives. For fans of classic wooden yachts, here are a few quick print scans of Olympus pulling away from the dock at Thetis Island Marina in August of 1999.

My Michie's and Grigor's are from the other side of Loch Ness, over at Glenlivet and Glenconglass. I really enjoy seeing your images from over in that part of the world.

Just a fun Instamatic photo from my 1979 university days (daze?) as a distraction from the world outside today.

A Canadian stereo stand.

LightRoom replacement for Mac

I would put in a vote for ON1 Photo Raw. License allows for installation on multiple computers, both Mac and Windows platforms, and after years of being primarily a Mac user I am hedging my bets on moving to Windows.

There are a number of good choices for the Mac, but for me ON1 seem to keep making strides on adding the features I need.

Trial available.

I'm going through my M series lenses trying to decide if/what to thin out of the inventory, and I think that one I will be keeping is the M28 2.8 silver ring version that seems to be a poor cousin in the ratings.

I'd posted this pano previously of two Ektachrome slides I shot on the old ME in the fall of 1982 not long after I bought the lens. Think I'm going to keep this one.

On to the M 50 1.7, M 50 2.0, M 100 F4 Macro, and M 200 F4...

I was going through some of my family photos and thought this one of my grandfather's headstone in the Field of Honour at Beechmount Cemetery in Edmonton was worth posting. Captures a mood for me, may also for others.

A few images from Expo 86 in Vancouver, shot from a boat on the water. A little challenging at night. Pentax ME, probably with my M28 2.8.

Fun photo from summer 1958 of my parents comparing their fish during a trip to Waterton National Park.

Scanned from a 120 format slide and processed in VueScan.

I am surprised being the music fan I am that this is the first place I read this. Juluka was a ground breaking significant music group.

Saw him perform once with Savuka, sorry to hear of his passing.

Was at the Calgary Stampede yesterday watching the Pow Wow dance competitions on the new stage at the Elbow River Camp.

When the Fancy dancers came on, it was "spray and pray" for me on Auto with my K-r and 18-135 just trying to zoom and frame as I had no idea where they would be next.

Got some images I am pleased with. Here are a few Jpegs straight out of the camera.

I like the look of that handle bar attachment you have for the camera. Can I ask the make/model of the bracket?
