#571. The Monday Post (20 March 2017)

Big news! The Holga is being re-introduced.   There. That’s as much news value as I can possibly wring from that. If blurry film images are your thing, I’m sure you’ll be delighted.   Meh.   Slow week this week. We’re in the UK catching up with the family we

#568. Monday Un-Post

DearSusan posts tell a story. A story of photography and situations/things/people to photograph, to process, to share and to remember. Therefore this cannot be a post, it must go down as an un-post. Un-kind, un-inspiring, un-amusing, Un-Susan. The un-post. Pascal can be such a drone sometimes (many times). He gets

Celebrity photographers are probably a bit less visible than they were a year or so back. Then, it was hard to trawl the Web, open a newspaper, or read a book without being confronted by some kind of publicity for some snapper, or other.   They’re still around and my

#563. The Monday Post (27 Feb 2017) – JPG vs RAW debate interesting again

A Hunter S Thompson-esque slow burn for vengeance remains this week. Anthrax sweeties, hand delivered to the CEOs (and boards of directors) of those software developers who singly and often en masse are destroying a hobby, art form, or perhaps an income stream for countless thousands of photographers around the

#560. The Monday Post (20 Feb 2017) – And now an anti-Apple rant

Come on … really? You thought that, just because I recently ended my long-term anti-Sony-ergonomics thread, wisdom had suddenly swept my brain free of all ranting tendencies? Nah, I’m way too immature for that. So, having made peace with Sony, let’s take a bite out of Apple. Hopefully, comments will

#558. The Monday Post (13 Feb 2017) – The anti-anti-Sony rant

My pet rant over recent years has been against Sony.   Sony got me into the mirrorless world with the wonderful NEX-5n. That and tiny Zeiss and Voigtlander lenses reinvented the way I traveled with cameras. Right up to the point where, in the middle of a remote West Australian

#556. The Monday Post (6 Feb 2017) – Droning On Scales

Over the past few days, we’ve been experiencing weather that lesser men would call … entertaining.     Not me, though. Instead of fretting, I’ve been thinking. All that talk about the GFX, you know … It got me itching to spend all that money I don’t have. And then

So, Paul’s been rather quiet about gear lately. Serenely content with his XPro-2 and lovely sprinkling of fabulous lenses. While I’m huffing and puffing my anger at over complexification, quality issues and creativity downers, he’s playing it cool.   Then, suddenly, when my blood flow has returned to normal levels,

In a recent e-mail from a friend, he revealed that he has a Tesla on order. It’s a year or so off yet, as the company hadn’t planned such a runaway success; orders (and cash deposits) streaming in from every point of the compass and in response, finished cars oozing
