I’d like you to meet Brodie the Boxer dog. Cute isn’t he? Brodie used to live next door, and like all Boxers, he was ungainly, playful and a little bit silly. When we were kids, we had a Boxer called Prince (full show name – Chance Fair Aaron Prince).…

The FED Zarya (meaning Dawn in Russian) camera was produced between 1959 and 1961. It was based on the FED 2 camera, but doesn't feature the slowest shutter speeds. Like the famous FED, it features...

+Steven James well all markets have their life cycles. .. this is why I think you may be right as far as direction... looks like Samsung is picking up through product line diversification. .. which strengthen the bottom line... my son gave me that Samsung which is mirrorless... but Steven other than macro and night time features. .. it's not there... now think they came out with a more competitive profesional model... the price range is higher than the nikon... 

They are proud of that camera... however in the Texas. .. you can only purchase the camera from online venders... that says alot...

Discovering the Quietsome Quiddity. Exploring the Vivid Expanse.
Introduction

Briefly...

Sometimes I write. Sometimes I make photographs and music. Creativity is strange and evasive. It's easily confounded by personal demons and self-sabotage. Grasping it, even for a moment, is challenging.

So much of our online interaction seems based on some degree of self marketing, and I really struggle talking about myself. When I do, I often find the systems of categorisation used to define people very limiting. I can easily maintain a list of my most common dabblings, and I have done so below, but I cultivate a wide range of interests, including but not limited to: boardgames, pen and paper role playing games, ancient history, philosophy and philosophy of mind, astronomy, technology, futurism, sociology, politics...and on and on...

I’m an introspective person, but not always quiet. I favour genuine people and few friends. I enjoy open spaces and suffer crowds and cities grimly. There are times when I’d be happy to live on a secluded hill with my family and other times when I’m inspired to use my camera in crowded concrete jungles.

I post all sorts of stuff on G+, from science and philosophy to my own photos and music playlists.
