Back to wielding the tanto instead of the katana ;)

Don't understand your post at all. Missing a lot of cultural context, I guess ;)
SiJy: Andrew used the Pentax K1 II (the katana). Now he's back with a nifty sidearm: the GR IIIx (the tanto). Right? :)


Sorry for butting in - but katana and tanto are well known to me (martial arts).

Matt hit the nail on the head, that was very cryptic on my part, but I was curious whether anyone would catch on. The analogy works pretty well in my head: both Japanese designed cameras, technically made by the same company in fact, the one a large, weighty and powerful full frame shooter, the other small, fast and sharp. Sort of a big sword/little sword combo.

Hall of Famer
A unique design for a foot-pedaled vending cart. More common are hand-pushed and trailer-towed designs. I've seen this vendor a few times in around the same place around the same time of day. I'm not sure why, but it seems that he changes location between the morning commute and lunch time.

this typ of vehicle used to be very common over here. Up to the previous generation. It is known as a - literal translation - baker's bicycle. Simply because that was what bakers used to deliver the breads house to house.
A car couldn't be afforded.
Then they gradually disappeared but lately, we saw a revival. Not for transporting bread anymore but once children - still too young to ride on a bicycle themselves.
As such, these contraption have become the terror of automobilist and other - regular - cyclists in the busy city centers.
Because they are wide, taking much more place than regular bikes and not manoeuvrable at all. :rolleyes:
