    The Swiss can make *anything* look quaint (and then someone will come and put a tag on it nowadays; I didn't show that one). In case you wonder: This is an old local transformer station, probably converted into a party room or something along those lines ... M.

    As always, when I ride, my inspiration was rather limited ... Very pleasant day, lots of people out and about, usually careful enough, which was good to see, but people in swim suits - of any kind - are really not my thing (they never were). So, limited choice of (undisturbed) subjects ... M.

    I bought mine used - or I might not have bought it at all because of the price of admission ... Still, it turned out to be one of the best investments I made in that field; it still is the core component of my touring bike. And it's that very bike I found it (after sufficient training - a whole...

    For many of the same reasons, I sometimes still miss the E-PM1 - simpler, yes, but also smaller and just as elegant; and of course, the same "restrictions" (just a bit slower, a bit less "advanced" - but a very nice camera in use, very satisfying). Enjoy your E-P3! :) M.

    Urban nature

    I wasn't aware of this little forest with all its interesting ponds and streams - it's surrounded by multi-storey buildings, right at the heart of the whole residential area. I'm not living too far away from this little nature reserve, yet have never explored it. This'll change ... M.

    True. I just wish people were aware of the hazard these things represent when lying around like that; I have several shots (not as well composed as Rolf's) of discarded masks and gloves that show that people do try to do the right thing - but why don't they finish what they started? It's not...

    What I can say so far is that the 90mm f/2 is a great performer, and very versatile, at that. I'll shoot it again this week (just not today - :mu43: celebratory outing with the GF-1 :)) and may have more to show for it ... That said, I need 1/125s for it at the moment; I'm not yet used to the...

    Sorry, I've never shot with the 75mm f/1.8 for any length of time (I've handled it - but that was a few years ago). However, I know people who have and were/are simply delighted. The lens is of course smaller and lighter than the 90mm f/2, but the latter has weather sealing (not that I had the...

    A little update on my latest acquisitions: The Fujifilm 90mm f/2 is a fantastic lens; and though it's big and bulky, it balances much better on the camera than I thought it would. As to downsides, it's clearly too big to fit into the main compartment of my small camera sling, but it fits into...

    On Saturday, I witnessed a magpie bullying a dove ... Interestingly, the magpie seemed to be pretty unsuccessful (they can shriek everything else into submission, it seems). Interesting read-up on this bird, too ... Thanks! M.

    Today I took the opportunity to revisit an image I posted earlier (on day 9 of SiJy) with a more appropriate focal length ... Shooting an 28mm-e made me appreciate what a real tele, a 135mm-e, should be able to do ... and I was not disappointed, even though I could have done better. I'm not...

    I almost don't dare to continue this, but here goes, with a twist ... This is actually a (young) artists play on a common "empty space use" advertisers utilise ("Your ad could occupy this space"). The camera is in the reflection, continuing the theme of Miguel's wonderful shot ... M.
