I find shooting the GR is more fun for me and most people don’t care about it. The longer zoom makes me kind of feel like I’m being too sneaky. I took Eric Kim’s class back in NYC last April and his recommended approach is to be open about it. People really seem to notice my bigger camera. Maybe I’ll play with it some more. I enjoy reading your posts.

If more fathers and sons did this, the world would be a better place. Thanks for sharing it.

Comment on On the Streets and Waterways of Sydney by Paul's Pictures http://sjl.us/main/2015/05/on-the-streets-and-waterways-of-sydney.html#comment-191194 Sun, 31 May 2015 05:38:42 +0000 http://sjl.us/?p=8966#comment-191194 Hey Scott. Didn’t know you were in Sydney. That photo of the bridge at Darling Harbour with the festival flags looks suspiciously similar to one I made just a few days ago. Hard to resist the waterways of Sydney isn’t it? Just beautiful. Amazingly so actually. And some very nice images here too. Heading over to Flickr now for a better look

Comment on On the Streets of San Francisco with the Fujifilm X100T Rangefinder by Matt Mikulla http://sjl.us/main/2015/04/on-the-streets-of-san-francisco-with-the-fujifilm-x100t-rangefinder.html#comment-188775 Sat, 02 May 2015 00:22:32 +0000 http://sjl.us/?p=8926#comment-188775 The image with the girl and two guys walking. And it looks like one guy is checking her out. That’s the stuff.

Great work and thanks for sharing. I don’t do much street but It would probably be a great experience and add to my craft and vocabulary.

Comment on Some Notes on Street Photography with the Fujifilm X100T by Mike http://sjl.us/main/2015/04/some-notes-on-street-photography-with-the-fujifilm-x100t.html#comment-187869 Mon, 20 Apr 2015 14:58:44 +0000 http://sjl.us/?p=8849#comment-187869 Enjoyed the post. I have an X100T and find myself switching between it and a Ricoh GR. Since I’m very tall, I find it easier to 1 hand the GR to get it lower when I get in close for street shots. I’ve recently got an XT-1 as well and would like to try the 27 mm panbale on it as compared to the X100T. Have you tried that with your XT-1

Comment on My Life in a Sling! – Rotator Cuff Surgery by Pam http://sjl.us/main/2009/11/my-life-in-a-sling.html#comment-179699 Sat, 28 Feb 2015 13:50:30 +0000 http://sjl.us.s61389.gridserver.com/main/2009/11/10/my-life-in-a-sling/#comment-179699 A friend told me about a shoulder motion chair called a Kinex that she rented which really helped in her recovery. I can’t find anyone in VA who rents it; the manufacturer has suggested I contact our insurance company to see if they have any ideas. Wondering if anyone has heard of it? http://www.kinexmedical.com/shoulder.html

Comment on My Life in a Sling! – Rotator Cuff Surgery by Joyce http://sjl.us/main/2009/11/my-life-in-a-sling.html#comment-179697 Sat, 28 Feb 2015 13:29:12 +0000 http://sjl.us.s61389.gridserver.com/main/2009/11/10/my-life-in-a-sling/#comment-179697 Wow, Pam, I wish I had something helpful to say! That is so amazing that you & your husband both had or will be having the shoulder surgery & sling! Be sure to tell your doctor what you’ve told us—that you don’t know if you can cope with the sling. Perhaps he would have an alternative. My best wishes to you and your husband for quick healing!!

Comment on My Life in a Sling! – Rotator Cuff Surgery by Pam B http://sjl.us/main/2009/11/my-life-in-a-sling.html#comment-179500 Fri, 27 Feb 2015 00:10:54 +0000 http://sjl.us.s61389.gridserver.com/main/2009/11/10/my-life-in-a-sling/#comment-179500 I am having shoulder surgery March 4, 2015 (next week!) for rotator cuff tear and arthritis bone spurs etc. I’ve had 4 injections and have been having pain for 2 years (injured rotator cuff May 2014). I was due to have surgery in January but my husband suffered a serious shoulder injury from a fall and on Jan 21 had major surgery for 3 shredded tendons and torn cuff, among other things. He is still in a sling and hasn’t yet started real PT….so we will both be in right arm slings at the same time! He is able to cook now so we think we can get along OK. He fitted me with my sling today so I could “practice”…after 45 minutes my neck was killing me! I have severe osteoarthritis, bone spurs and stenosis in my neck. I am really worried now about having to wear this sling, is there an alternative that won’t mess up my neck?
