My New Lumix FZ1000 Camera

My New Lumix FZ1000 Camera

 In my 50-plus years of owning cameras, I’ve never owned anything other than semi-pro and/or pro level cameras with interchangeable lens.  Canon has always been my camera of choice, although my first camera was a Minolta SRT101 and my last film camera was a Mamiya ProTL gripped and multiple lens.  Some years ago, I realized that […]

Can You Say “Hyundai?”

Can You Say “Hyundai?”

Hyundai is coming out with a pickup that my wife has already ok’d for me to purchase. Well, at least she said “Oh!, that’s beautiful” which I took to mean “why don’t we get one of those?” I’ve never liked pickups other than the early El Caminos. However, this one makes me feel the need […]

Autumn Scenery

Let me start by saying that I am definitely a ‘fair weather’ rider. I don’t like riding when I’m miserable so when the weather drops down into the 40s or below, I don’t break the motorcycle out unless it is an absolute necessity. Having said that, I love the autumn weather with its beautiful scenery and […]

Old Car, New Work

Here is one I did for my gear-head followers.  Not sure of the year/make but for this type of technique, it’s not really that important.  This would look great hanging in a den or man-cave. (particularly if your own car is used for the image).
