Camera testing in antique stores

Last post I briefly touched on the fact that I purchased a Canon EOS M camera and was in the process of testing it out. What I didn’t mention was the reason for the purchase. Regular readers would know that I use Pentax DSLR cameras and I am quite happy with them. I’m used to the way they operate and…

Time to take care of business again

Unfortunately summer has come to an end here in the northern hemisphere. It’s that time again for chilly nights and pumpkin beer. ūüėČ I have to say although I do like some aspects of autumn I’m just not feeling it this year. Summer seemed all too short.

Man, this week has been flying by! I’ve been so busy that I forgot I wanted to follow up my last post with some color photos of the flowers.

I was working in the area at the time and during a rainy day break from work I remembered the overlook from visiting in my teenage years back in the early 80’s and wondered what it looked like. I…
