My Photo
Name:

My home is in Chamberlains, CBS, Newfoundland: a place close enough to sea so that I can go there to watch the glorious sunsets over the bay, and the other infinite variety of sights and sounds that are forever changing, yet forever the same. I'm not as young as I used to be and don't get around much any more, but I've had many wonderful hours of enjoyment with my Yasihca 44 TLR and trusty old OM-2. I've always enjoyed photographing wild flowers, particularly the smaller ones, many of which , albeit mostly overlooked and dismissed as weeds, are exquisitely beautiful. Digital photography, complete with all the magic of its own portable darkroom, has brought a new dimension to the hobby. My OM-2 is retired now, but it is such a beautiful instrument, such a joy to hold and behold, that I don't think I will ever want to part with it. My digital, used mostly, is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30. Its 35-420 mm Leica zoom lens can really reach out for those hard to reach shots. My photographs are strictly amateurish, but hopefully some have succeeded in capturing something of the moment that inspired them.

Hi Lloyd,
Does this mean that you bought a new Canon DSLR? If so, very nice!
I have enjoyed your recent autumn scenes postings. Thanks, Dave

You're right. I bought the XSi. Gave my Panasonic DMC-FZ30 to my daughter. The DMC-FZ30 is by all accounts the better camnera although costing less than half the price. The new DMC-FZ50 is an even a better camers.

Hi Lloyd,
Your daughter must be delighted. It is pretty hard to compete with Leica optics! But Canon is none too shabby either. You'll enjoy it. Dave

The DMC-FZ30 is a much more sophisticated camera. It has real live LCD not the useless compromise found in the XSi Plus, it has real macro. I regretnot having bought the new FZ-50

Time is....nice picture of your former self...it takes light a little time to travel/reflected off an object/people and to be captured by our eyes so we never see people/stuff in real time.So when we see stuff it's millions???? of nanoseconds old.Or a maybe a little less older than that.....great pictures.

Interesting comment, and, of course, you are perfectly right. I never fail to think about it whenever I look at the stars.

Lloyd- I use a Panasonic FZ 7 and didn't realize that they have a FZ30 and FZ50.
Do you know Art Griffin who lives in Pasadena and has a great website at
art@artandcarol.ca

He has lots of stuff about Newfoundland and has been working on this site for years. All the best, Bill
