Summer Heat — Ricoh GRD 3

 

Miami is hotter than ever I tell you. Its to the point that its borderline unbearable to be on the streets. You can probably fry an egg on the street in a couple of minutes without any problems. Coupled with the humidity at 100% and a temperture of 98 degrees it actually feels like 108 degrees, too much to bare for any human being if you ask me.

Patterns — Ricoh GRD 3

 
 

On the photography forefront as Photokina quickly approaches its almost inevitable to talk about the new gear that’s coming soon. Possible new compacts in the horizon, new Olympus and Panasonic lenses, supposively Canon joing the mirrorless revolution (as I like to call it), and a slew other products. While all that is the talk in various forums. I continue to simplify my photography with a m43 body, 2 prime lenses (native & legacy), and a small compact. What else do I need? The answer; simply time.
