Re: Wide Angles, 10mm or less?

For almost five years, I have had an 8mm Olympus lens for my OM-D. I do use it now and again (just to remember what it's like!), but it's a sort of one-trick pony and I have not really figured out what to with that one trick.

Re: Postcard circle event.

Aha! Today, Monday 13/7/20, I received Pablo's Galapagos postcard (with a half-moon in the sky above :) ). Yay!

It was postmarked 19/6, so it took just over three weeks.

Re: Postcard circle event.

My July card to Scott went out early this week (Monday 6th July, I think).

I've received none in the past few months. (The last one I received may have been in February!)

Re: Postcard circle event.

My June card to Pablo was mailed earlier this week, the 8th of June, I think. Fingers crossed for a speedy trip.

Re: Thinking ahead

I do 95% of my picture taking nowadays with two digital cameras. One is my Fujifilm X100T, which was a slight improvement over my old X100. A better carry-around digital camera than one of these I can't think of. The slight improvement, for me, was the rearrangement of the manual-autofocus switch so...

Re: Postcard circle event.

Here it is the fifth of May and I just remembered I must send Julio a postcard! Julio, I will make the card tonight. How long the post offices take . . . we don't know.

Re: Postcard circle event.

It is Sat 4/4/20 and I will soon walk to the mailbox to drop off my April card to Mike Elek.

We, by the way, are healthy here with pretty good graph-dampening procedures in effect throughout the city. I hope all reading this are well, too.

Re: Postcard circle event.

Welcome, Scott! And thanks, Alex, for the reminder that April month is Mike Elek's. Mike, I will start thinking right away about what to send. Our mail system has been kaput for the past week but I hope by the end of this week it will be running again. I have been relying on prints I made at a kiosk...
