Dramatic increase in my step count yesterday & today.
Today’s first real walk in 6-weeks.
I think I walked further (but didn’t have the ‘proper’ GPS setting). C’est la vie.
There was no pain to talk about
— throughout, from surgery to now.
I agnozied about getting a bundle.
In the end I got it ONLY because it was from Cardinal Camera and I have bought cameras and bundles, with success, from them in the past.
All I wanted was the: camera, 24-105mm f/4 L ISM USM lens, the grip and the adapter. The bundle was STILL CHEAPER than these 4 items together and this was the ONLY WAY I could get all 4 as a kit/bundle.
The rest was FLUFF. I relented and kept the 128GB SD card. It is a Class I. I shoot Class 3.
I haven’t tried the flash or the spare battery. It charged, but I haven’t put it in the camera.
I gave most it to the 18-year old daughter who has my old Canon T3i.
I am fussy about what I use with my camera.
The Canon EOS RP body.
With the grip attached.
Comes with NO instructions. The original door has to be removed. I had to work it out. You can see it in front.
The grip definitely helps. Too small without it. Should be STANDARD.
The MOST important bits. My wrist straps. I do NOT use a neck strap. Getting these on was the hardest part.
With the ‘Expert Shield’ screen protector. Worked like a CHARM the second time around. No wonder they send you TWO.
With the Canon RF 24 – 105mm f/4 L IS USM lens attached.
Search ‘EOS RP’.
It arrived today, via UPS, around 2:30pm. It took me awhile to sort everything out.
This was the very 1st picture. Actually, to be brutally honest, it was #2. The camera accidently took a picture of the floor while I was adjusting the diopter! I deleted that.
So, far, so good. I took 40-pictures in my very first batch. I will post 7 others shortly.
So, now I am back to Canon.
Oh, this was with the Canon RF 24 – 105mm f/4 L IS USM lens. That is the ONLY lens I have so far.
Search ‘EOS RP’.
‘York Minster‘ is one of my FAVORITE cathedrals in the whole world. Though called ‘Minster’ it is a bona fide cathedral, the seat of the Archbishop of York. The ‘Minster’ refers to it having been a scholarly missionary teaching church way back. I have spent a lot of time in this Minster, sometimes going for evensong in the evening.
I left the U.K. in 1985. So, I didn’t get to visit it right after the fire.
But, I visited it often between 1989 and 1999. It was pristine by then. I don’t think the damage was as extensive as what has befallen Notre Dame. But, I could be wrong on that.
So, there is always hope and with money, perseverance and skill you can restore these old MARVELS.
Tight, gripping, intriguing. Powerful, in-your-face characters. The mystery is set within an aboriginal community. That is the educational part. we have not had that much exposure to modern day aboriginal life and this show takes you there — in spades. Reminds me, very much, of the Navajos and life in and around my beloved Canyon de Chelly. The male detective is ‘BLACK’ — i.e., an aborigine. That gives it all a nice twist. He has a colorful past too.
We have only watched the first 4 episodes. But, they were good. I can’t wait to go back and finish the series. I think I will not be disappointed.
The Diary Of Anne Frank
I had absolutely no idea that this was indeed the case — and, moreover, has been since July 2001. 18-years ago. WOW.
Another casualty of the Internet.
Yes, it is also true that once I could get cricket score on the Interweb (via. say ‘cricinfo‘) I lost interest in fiddling around with SW.
I just go myself a small radio from Amazon today so that I can EASILY listen to NPR during my walks. [I am off-crutches after 6-weeks and intend to do a fair amount of walking.] It had SW has a bonus. So, I was looking forward to listening to BBC on SW. Well, I guess that is not going to happen.
P.S., It was cheaper to get this $24 radio than messing around trying to get FM on my Google Pixel 2.
