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...

Larry, wonderful, but sad and sobering, pictures. Have the homeless people left the area?

Re: Something old...

I'm only 67 years old, but I feel old. In my twenties, I spent two years working off and on with my father who was an electrician. We had two drills, the smaller one much like this one, and the bigger one a brace-and-bit which you leaned into with your shoulder. We wired many houses with those two d...

Re: CoronaVirus Pandemonium

Here in St John's, the eastern-most city of Canada, the shutdown has been slowly coming into effect for a couple of weeks. The first runs on toilet paper were nearly two weeks ago. :) There've been scattered shortages, none very long-lasting since then. Stores are still open and, although I had book...
