    It's been 10 good years but it's time to bid farewell.

    I trust that you are being well followed, medically. I look forward to your visits here whatever their frequency. All the best to you, despite a not-so-great situation.

    Show Clouds Sunrise/Sunset

    I can’t say ‘don’t get me started’—it’s too late. Sunsets, clouds, sky shots are among my favourite subjects. I won’t flood Cameraderie with my pics, but here is one more.

    What's your oldest "living" digital camera?

    2002 Panasonic Lumix FZ20. My first digital camera after a one year photography hiatus after my (film) Nikon FM developed a light leak. It is fully functional, as are the two batteries I have for it. The batteries don’t hold their charge very long.

    Fall colors

    The southern and central Maine and New Hampshire mountains were resplendent with autumn colours. As we travelled west and north more trees were bare and gave a grey, velvety sense to the scenery. The post-peak fall foliage is well represented in these shots taken at Crawford Notch, NH.

    Beach/Ocean: Lets see yours.

    A clear night and rising almost-full moon drew me to Wells Beach to capture a ‘few' images. Being a landlubber and city dweller, I rarely see a well defined horizon, certainly nothing like the ocean’s. The first image was shot about 30 seconds after the moon’s first emergence, and the second...

    Beach/Ocean: Lets see yours.

    We go to southern Maine coast about once a year. It’s the same place but always different. Ogunquit Beach is at the southern end of a ‘peninsula’ with the Ogunquit river to the east and the Atlantic on the west side. The interaction of the the river current and tides transforms the beach...

    Stroll Not Your Average Suburban Strip-mall Bank Branch

    In the 19th Century the Old Port area of Montreal was the financial hub of the city and Canada. The Bank of Montreal constructed many branches that are now designated as historical buildings/sites. Here’s a picture of the main branch in Montreal.

    Zoo Ecomuseum (Montreal)

    I am at that zoo about twice a year — driven by my grandchildren’s requests. I left my LX100 at home and decided to take the FZ20 because of its longer zoom range and despite its minimal chip size. I was reminded that in daylight and relatively stationary subjects, the camera performs quite...

    Zoo Ecomuseum (Montreal)

    Feedback Nice bright look at new site

    I like the dark theme; it seems to allow the content to predominate. I’m not a fan of sans-serif fonts but it’s clearly legible. At least this font differentiates between a lower case l and an upper case I. Number 1 is distinct as well. Number 0, capital O. The weight of the font is heavy -...

    re: darkroom equipment. I’m packing mine up to be sold or given away. There are two unfortunate aspects. One is that I live in Montreal and the shipping costs to you would be prohibitive. The other is that I only worked with 35mm negs. The required enlarger and lens for medium format (120 or 220...

    The End - endless longing

    I’m in the midst of sorting old photos of mine, some 45 years old. Seeing my father, who died 18 years ago, in many of the pictures is bitter-sweet and valuable. His photography interest was home movies, and they’re great to watch (I had many of them transferred to DVDs). Our pasts sustain us...

    Reading about your dilemma is interesting to me because your concerns are the same as mine. But my perspective is that of current LX100 user. What would I buy if my LX100 died?
