All discerning photographers knew that this would be the day of reckoning for the Sony a7 family — the announcement of the Nikon competition.

What can you say?

You knew Nikon was going to hit it out of the park — at least in terms of specs and lens availability.

Yes, we haven’t seen actual proof as yet.

But, we doff our hats.

Innocent Catholic Priest Attacked In Indiana Following Pennsylvania Sex Abuse Report.

This is getting out-of-hand and unacceptable. Yesterday vandalism and then this. You cannot pin this on all Catholic priests and you definitely cannot go around attacking poor, innocent priests at random.

Yes, people are frustrated and angry, BUT things have to be done non-violently, through the proper channels and without any crimes being committed, e.g., vandalism.

I would definitely like to see more peaceful protests in churches. They, the Church, must understand that enough is enough. This has gone too, too far.

Maybe the pope, acting dumber than usual, will start paying some attention. Going to Ireland, this weekend, will focus his now increasingly addled mind.

I was out right after a heavy rain trying to take some pictures. These caught my eye and I couldn’t resist. They came out rather nicely too. So, I wanted to share.

Pennsylvania Colleges Removing Names Of Catholic Bishops Accused In Sex Abuse CRIMES.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. From NPR.


Yesterday we saw, alas, vandalism out of sheer frustration.

Today, we see sanity and common-sense finally beginning to prevail. This, however, is but a small, firststep. So, much needs to be done. Cardinals, Archbishops, Bishops and priest need to be fired and where possible sent to prison.

The three bishops whose names are being expunged are: Jerome Hannan, James Timlin and J. Carroll McCormick — all three bishops of Scranton, PA, at various times.

Baby steps ….

But, a decent, moral start.
