I had originally planned on visiting the city today to test the camera, but after yesterday’s results thought it best to give another try locally. Woke up this morning to pouring rain but after checking my DarkSky app looked like it would clear up around 8am. Craziness of our weather here in the NE is the temp was 53 degrees, so with all the snow on the ground we had major fog. Drove into Port Jefferson, (I am running out of local towns that hold any hope of people), figured I’d try to catch some images of the ferry and whatever else I could find. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny but very cold, I’ve already bought my LIRR tickets into Penn Station so I will be going 🙂 One of the major problems I am finding with the Fuji X-T3 is the battery life, it is awful! I’m am packing my Canon equipment as a backup, because I know the battery on the Fuji is going to die and I don’t want to waste a trip to city without some night light captures.
Hello. Nice to meet you, well virtually anyway. I love being outdoors whenever possible, I enjoy making photographs, be it a flower, a landscape or some street photography...it is my escape and my right brain nurturing.
The purpose of this blog is to share with you moments I have enjoyed, places I have visited and images that I hope will bring a smile to your day. Feel free to comment, sign up for email notification of my posts or email me. Thank you for visiting

I understand the pain of deciding to buy a completely different camera outfit. I own Canon cameras and lenses myself. The amount of money it cost me to get everything I have that works with the Canon’s are just not worth changing over to the Mirrorless camera’s. I have several thousands dollars in Cameras, Lenses, lighting equipment and so on. Good Luck Judy, if you decide to sell what you know works well for you.
Bob, Haven’t posted my pics yet from the city yet but did make a decision… Staying with what I have, it has served me well and heck this is my hobby not my profession so no need to have the latest and greatest when I am able to do what I want with what I have 🙂 Did have fun playing with it though 🙂

Glad to hear you decided to keep what you have. Newer gadgets are not always better. Proof of that is in the old cars that are still running without any major problems. Newer ones seem to always need mechanical work and wow the cost can give you a heart attack. lol
If you are looking for a digital camera there is one that is a monster of a camera. Zoom all the way out to 2000 mm. I saw pics from one in person and they are so crisp and sharp I thought about getting one myself. Problem is. It’s a Nikon. Never used one of those but I am sure I could learn their system.
Anyway, have fun with you old system. I know I enjoy mine tremendiously.
