I like the ‘New Camera‘ Website and content. Over the last few weeks, after I stumbled upon them serendipitously, I visit them at least twice a day!

They, of course, given what they do, know their stuff.

Of course any camera buying guide is subjective. With that in mind, I can basically live with what it says in this guide.

That they concur with I that the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000, which I bought (in a hurry in September), is THE BEST long zoom camera was a bonus. I was chuffed. So I got it RIGHT.


A Bit Of British Nostalgia For The Holiday.

I, as is no secret, miss my traditional British Holidays — Boxing Day and Hogmanay in particular. So I am going to indulge.

I got a bunch of these historic pictures from Sri Lanka earlier this week.
I shared all of them, via e-mail, with the 4 people I have on my ‘friends & family’ distribution lists. They loved them.

I checked the copyright — yet again.
Pictures before 1923 are now definitely out of copyright — in the U.S. of A.
So, if anybody claims copyright on these I would dearly like to see
their credentials for claiming as such.

Now some of you may know the nursery rhyme. So here is the real thing that went with that rhyme.

Real Estate in London was expensive even in 1910.

More pictures in coming days, if I have the time and I remember.
Crazy busy. Another book is nearly at an end. But, I won’t publish it this year.
