Other than the circles, everything else is hand drawn.

It is something to behold. It is blinking beautiful. Her most ambitious and, of course, best effort to-date — and she knows it.

So, a week ago she was going to sell it to I for $90. Today, she wanted $200. But, we had a deal. She is on the hook to sell it to I for $90.

I just need to raise the $90 in cash. That is all that she will deal in.

Let’s, please, agree on one thing up front. Despite all my manifold faults, foibles and failing, you have to admit I sure am still extremely cuddly.

Notice the huge scar, chest-to-groin from when I had most of my internal organs replaced — mainly with stuffing.

You also have to admit the tan is looking good. I have been having a major crisis for the last 24-hours. Roger Stone and I are roughly the same age! Yikes, how can that be. Well, I guess he lived a better life than I.

OK. OK. OK. Yes, it is the cold. Called shrinkage. you sit out there, in the nude, in 36°F (1°C), and see what it does to your body parts.

30,000th Picture With My Full-Frame Sony a7 II.

30,000th picture — January 26, 2019.

20,000th picture — June 26, 2018.

10,000th picture — August 16, 2017.

1st picture with my a7 II camera — May 10, 2017.

Since I got back into photography in 2014, this is the longest I have held onto a camera. 1 year, 8 months & 2 weeks –> 626 days. Wow. I am impressed with myself. I had told myself — and possibly even you — that I was going to sell it once I had taken 20,000 pictures and completed my ‘next’ book. Well, I have now taken 30,000 pictures and completed at least two books.

30,000 pictures. This is a record for I — by a long chalk.

30,000 pictures in 626 days. That comes to 48 pictures a day!

But, here is the kicker. Though I take pictures each and every day, without fail, I do NOT use the Sony a7 II every day. Today, for example, was the first time I had used it in 13-days!

Since I have had the a7 II I have always had AT LEAST two other cameras (my Google Pixel 2 mainly a camera rather than a phone). And since getting the Google Pixel 2, on Christmas 2017, I tend to use it more than the a7. That is quite an endorsement for the Google Pixel 2.

So, here is how it worked out:

So, how many pictures do I take in total, in a given year, across all my cameras.

2017 — 29,322 pictures

2018 — 26,625 pictures

2019 — 1,173 in 26 days (45 a day).
