Pearson’s Greenhouses (New Durham, NH) Open House — May 30, 2020.

These ‘interesting’, mainly plastic greenhouses are on an interestingly named dirt-road — viz. ‘Much A Doo‘ — about 4-miles from our house. Though I, on one of my daily walks, get within 1/2-mile of it, we don’t go by there often. Pity. It is quite scenic.

We went to the Open House — which I gather was advertised on Facebook.

What struck me was the amount of ENERGY required to run greenhouses up here in the Arctic Circle. Look at the pictures. Notice all the oil tanks & chimneys. I had fun taking pictures. Wanted to share them with you. Enjoy.

Once I sold my Canon EOS RP in April, I did say that I might get a Panasonic ZS200 as a replacement. Well, I did. But, I haven’t unboxed it yet!

Due to some intense ‘horse-trading’ involving trade-ins & a very unexpected Panasonic $200 rebate on the ZS200, I ended up getting BOTH a ZS200 & ZS80!

Why? ZS200 has the bigger sensor I seek & the ZS80 has a long-zoom I like. Different horses for different courses. Quality vs. reach.

I will use the ‘inexpensive’ (can be banged about) ZS80 on my travels & when I am hiking. With its zoom I will be able to capture the long-shots I so cherish.

The ZS200 will be for more REFINED work. Yes, it will go with me on my travels but I will not lug it around as much.

Anywho, these are my first pictures with the ZS80. As always, with a new camera, I started off in FULL-AUTO mode.

They are OK. I will work on them.

I got both cameras on Tuesday — 5-days ago! With the rush to publish the ‘comet book’ I didn’t get to the cameras till today. Yes, I had tow brand new cameras sitting in their boxes, untouched, for 5-days. That is my life.
