We're also getting closer to the Giants winning the World Series.
Hurricane Sandy is getting closer and closer to the east coast.
we're getting closer to the end of all the election campaign ads. Of
course, here in California, we don't have it nearly as bad as people in
Ohio, where the media is inundated by millions of dollars of out of
state, right wing sponsored, advertising.
here in California we are inundated with beautiful weather, year round
fresh produce, mountains, lakes, rivers, ocean beaches, and the
expectation that our food is labeled correctly.
Another Camera In My Bag
FZ5 and FZ8 side by side comparison.
I bid on eBay
for another Lumix ‘FZ’ series camera a few weeks ago. I got the camera,
(sent from Canada), early last week. It didn’t come with a battery, so I
sent off for one. The battery arrived today and I began testing the
Panasonic Lumix FZ8. I think this model was new in 2007.
I took it out
for a spin today. I have a lot to learn, but I sure enjoy learning how
to use the additional features. It has a few cosmetic flaws, (missing
selector dial knob, scratches on the LCD, no lens cap...), but that’s
why I could afford it. The lens is good, and the innards all work like
here today come from all my Lumix cameras. Each camera has its own
special function in my estimation. I always wondered about that
caricature of a photographer with all the different cameras hanging
around his neck. I get it, now.
I get closer and closer to becoming a really good photographer. I like
learning one set of functions at a time in the digital world of
photography. This is a lot of fun.
will probably see me wandering around Redding with 3 or 4 cameras all
strapped around my neck, like a walking cartoon photographer, happily
I have a feeling that each camera, will play its part in the days collection of imagery.
