Mr. Albannach. SMILE. My ‘buddy’ from Glasgow.

A piper.

Mr. Charlie Zahm, underestimated and underappreciated for TOO long. One heck of a performer (from PA).

12 out of 10 for ‘Old Orchard Beach‘ for effort. Bravo.

A micro “Highland Games at Loon” in a small park, by the ocean with the fog rolling over. Cute.

It was not bad, not bad at all. They even had some ‘Games‘ — caber tossing etc!

A tad light on the music. And not the greatest of locations. Too small. But I wish them ALL the very best. Great notion. Step in the right direction.

We didn’t stay long. Drove 90 minutes each way and stayed for 60 minutes. Didn’t even stay to hear ‘Albannach’ (who performed at 2pm & 4pm). I should have gone on my OWN! That was a mistake. Will not repeat that next year or in September.

P.S., Parking wasn’t bad. But the fog was rolling in and it was ‘cold’. If it had been warmer the beach may have been busier.

Fuji X-70, Per ‘The New Camera’, The Best 2016 Compact Camera Under $700.

Interesting choice. The Fuji X70 is a nice enough camera, but it has two major limitations: no viewfinder and it is a FIXED 18.5mm lens.

Even if you overlook the viewfinder the fixed lens (without a zoom) could prove to be a distraction down the road.

I will confess to having looked at the X70. But just couldn’t see myself being able to use it on an extended period.

Sure it has an APS-C sensor, with 16MP — same as that on my Fuji X-E2s. But at $700, I think, the X70 is ‘neither here nor there’.

But it is worth looking at.
