. Taken with my Canon G1 X.

The $269 Refurbished Canon G1 X, I got directly from Canon, takes some amazing, very clear, very sharp pictures with vivid color. It is really good at taking facial pictures. I was very impressed with the image quality.
But, when it came to me, a well documented Type Hyper-AAA +++ person, it was WAY TOO slow between shots. It is rated at 1.9 shots per second but I never saw anything that quick. You take a picture and you want to review it. It takes forever. You get this black screen saying ‘BUSY’. I just can’t deal with that. Life is too short to waste peering at a black LCD for it to display the image I want to see.
So, great little (but heavy) camera. Loved it. Just did NOT like the lag time between shots — or at least between shots in my type of shooting, i.e., take a picture, make sure it is OK, then move to the next. Yes, I am sure if I held the shutter down it would take pictures fairly rapidly. But I do not do that often. I like to see what I shot before I move on. That way I can take another to correct any problems.
So I am back to the drawing board. What next?

This was fun.
Ten years ago I used to enjoy creating Websites. I did quite a few Websites (in excess of 20 I would think) — all in FrontPage 2013. As with anything, I got good at it with practice.
I can’t say I really relish making Websites. I do them when I have to. I had promised Saad, so I had to do it.
I kind of built up to this with Teischan’s and ‘Pup Is NOT A Toy‘ earlier this month. I updated Teischan’s ‘My Name‘ page to get warmed-up before I jumped into creating Saad’s. IF you want to see some Titian nudes, TITIAN not Teischan, take a gander and click on the thumbnails.
People who have never known my level of ‘business’ can never even imagine how busy I am — and how much I get done, in tangible deliverables, a day.
I have been crazy busy. Yes, OF COURSE, I am working on another book. Writing books is like breathing, eating, drinking red wine, running and sex. If I am alive I am writing.
Last night I finished Chapter 4. With this book I lucked out. Four trusted friends agreed to proof the book for me as I write it. That is such a HUGE help. So this morning I sent them the PDF for proofing. Yes, I should have started on Chapter 5.
But, I have such a backlog. I had promised Saad that I would put his mesmerizing ‘Virgin Mary‘ on eBay. Did that. My 1st eBay listing in 8 years! I had given up trying to sell things on eBay. But, to be fair, they really do make it simple. So that was fun.
I am still not totally sold on Yola. IT WORKS. No question about that. It is also responsive. Maybe with more use I will get to love it. Sure does what it promises.
I probably have to make a Website for John Bishop too! He was here this morning. I try to help people, but … time, time, time.
