#732. Monday Post (4 June 2018) – Confessions of a repentent slut

  First of all I have to confess, I was a slut. A bokeh slut. See post https://www.dearsusan.net/2017/05/20/596-bokeh-slut/ To the question: but why? my first 2 answers were: “because my mum taught me not to use the word w***e”, and “because I can”. A self-professed, unapologetic slut.     How

#704. Monday Post (19 March 2018)

It’s Tuesday and unusually, I’m writing next week’s Monday Post.   Already?   Posts don’t usually get written until Monday morning and after an intense struggle to find something interesting to write about.         That’s so, but I’m about to leave for several weeks on the road

#686. Monday Post (8 Jan 2018) – Peak photo?

  The pundits continue to wrangle; have we reached Peak Oil, or passed it. Does it matter any more as new deposits continue to be found and slowly declining demand keeps the price around $60/bbl?   Consider that the world’s bovines fart and belch infinitely more in the way of

#681. Monday Post (25 Dec 2017) – Eclecticism

  I sense that there are a few readers that have been with us throughout 2017, tasted our erudition, benefitted from our skills, learned from our experiences, tutted at our photographic expenditure and excess, yawned at our willingness to repeat ourselves, shaken their heads as we’ve tried, tested and fawned

#679. Monday Post (18 Dec 2017) – Loose Ends?

  December. Christmas is already the elephant in the room and as I’ve been out of the DearSusan loop for a couple of weeks road tripping, my thoughts turn to the penultimate Monday Post and what I can contribute.     A quick check to ensure my facilities remain largely

#645. Monday Post (18 September 2017): Chewing the RX10 IV cud

    Behind the scenes at DearSusan, the contributors occasionally indulge in some robust discussion, mostly not for publication, but sometimes delivering excellent content – just the kind the Monday Post was created for.   This conversation was started last week by my reading of Kirk Tuck’s comments on Sony’s

#634. Monday Post (21 Aug 2017): Unsplash – death to sales?

A few days ago, I came across this article on PetaPixel, entitled “the future of photography”. The article is written by Mikael Cho, the founder of a website called “Unsplash”, a social networking photo sharing website on which users to give away copyright free high-resolution photos. I read it with

#621. Monday Post (24 July 2017) – Who do you shoot for?

In some ways, Thomas Fitzgerald beat me to this piece. He wrote “Who do you take pictures for?” a couple of weeks ago and I confess to being a bit miffed at the time.   Being all grown-up, I’m over that now and find myself wondering at it’s necessity. After

# 619 Monday-Post-gone-over-to-Tuesday (17-18 July 2017) Is it Likeable, or Leicable.

Readers of DearSusan know it, not one of our gang is actually fond of Leica. Well that’s not true. We’re all rather fond of Leica actually, but not of Leica cameras. All of us love Leica glass, but the cameras, well… We’d all love for Leica to do well and
