I stand by my signature line....
I was thinking of you and your signature line just two hours ago. Here in Phnom Penh the rainy season is just starting, we just had a huge thunderstorm passing by the city a few hours ago. In the aftermath I went to pick up pizzas around 6 PM our time and the light was just fantastic. I saw two fantastic images, I had nothing to capture them with, one towards the setting sun over a couple of taller buildings and one to the east, with the sun behind me lighting up an old Soviet apartment building that is falling apart. I often bring my S100 in the car but just forgot this time and I missed it. I'll bring it tomorrow though.

Have a great weekend!

....is the one in my hand when I need it :)
Two weeks ago, after a winter of shooting a great grey owl at considerable distance, on the only day I didn't have any camera with me, there he is, perched on a limb 2 meters away.... I watched him for thirty minutes thinking that you could have gotten great shots with even an iPhone...... A camera sitting at home is useless!

We live and learn. There'll be more raim the coming week. I will go and get that shot with the setting sun on that building and post it here. Framing will be difficult, but if I can get near what I saw today I will be happy.

The best camera is the one you understand and can shoot images with.

...that gets the girls attention...

This reminded me of my survey, 9/10 girls liked my x100s over my 7d

:) I used to have x100 and would get attention everywhere! Waiting for the black version of x100s to come then I will buy.

Absolutely!

Well, sometimes it is hanging from your shoulder. Or from your neck (depending on the type of strap).
Or you left it in the car.
Or at home (and somebody mentioned those so please note I am not taking credit for them...)

However, the bestest camera ever - from my experience - your eyes. 3D video and stills. All in one package. And no need to download via USB cable :)
