Random Photos – Warrington, PA

My wife, my son and I took advantage of the beautiful early afternoon by taking a stroll at Lower Nike park in Warrington, PA.  It was a good 3 or so mile loop, and it gave us a good light work out.  We also happen to spot a coyote, but I was unable to grab a shot though.

Enjoy some sad attempt at bird photos.  These were shot with the Pentax K3, with a Pentax 100mm F/2.8 Macro WR, and Fujifilm X100S.

 

Please leave us some feedback below, like our FB page, or just like this post.  It would be better too if you can follow us, so you won’t miss out on stuff you really can miss out on…lol.  But seriously, we’d like to know your thoughts, good or bad.

Is Film Making a Comeback?

I was just talking about this with Jon today and realized that the news release from Kodak is almost 2 weeks old.  Sure, this is old news now…but things in the old days took time to develop.  Like film!

Where am I going with this?  Well back to Kodak, the company has announced that it will be manufacturing Ektachrome film!

To the film enthusiasts out there, this is good news, because this is Kodak’s first slide film in the company’s film products for what was a very long time.

Me, being a Fujifilm fan, am quite delighted by this news.  I really want to try something different than Velvia as I have never had great chances to shoot with slide film as far as I can recall.  Fujifilm’s Velvia is a great product, but using the Ekta will make for a great shoot out!

We’ll keep you posted when we get our first batch.

Jezza’s Gift Follies

Every year for my birthday, my lovely wife always asks me “what do you want for your birthday?”, and I always respond with a resounding “dunno”.  I did come back with something once I think about it for a couple of days.

This year, I chose the Think Tank Photo Retrospective 30 Camera bag as my gift of choice.  I am in desperate need of a functional, yet compact camera bag.  My Tamrac Pro-12 is too big and bulky, and my Tenba Messenger bag (I forget the model number) is getting too small, or is small, or my gear just doesn’t fit in it anymore, or at least it’s not meeting my current needs.

Now, why the Think Tank Retrospective 30 you ask? Well allow me to explain. I listen to this obnoxious photographer’s podcast called Raw Talk. That photographer is Jared Polin aka the Fro.  If you don’t know who he is, watch or listen to his weekly podcast, Raw Talk.  Jared and Co. (Stephen, Todd, DDDan, and Noah) are a blast to listen to.

But anyway, what does listening to some dude’s podcast made me pick a particular camera bag?  Well, Jared sells his own version of one (linky here) and he spoke very highly of it.  (as he should since he’s peddling it. LoL)   I took a closer look, and it practically fits my needs. I would have bought his “I Shoot Raw” branded version, but I like to be a bit more discrete.

So now it brings me to my predicament.  My wife ordered the bag through Amazon, which was being sold by a third party seller through Amazon. It was Prime eligible, and was going to be arriving the day of my birthday.  I come home, and I see all the gifts she had for me waiting for me and a mysterious Phottix boom stand box. (see pic)
