Boy, what a comatose forum this has become, and as much my fault as anyone. Actually, the (lack of) activity over this entire site is pretty depressing.

On a bag-note, in case anyone were looking for such, I have finally hit on something that works PERFECTLY to tote a full M. Zuiko PRO lens set up, The Tamrac 8Z sling, which today I have packed with my E-M1 Mark II with grip and 12-100mm f4 mounted, with the 40-150mm f2.8 fitted with the MC14 on one side, and the 7-14mm f2.8 M. Zuiko and 8mm f1.8 FE stacked on the other. For tomorrow morning's hike around White Rock Lake I am going to substitute the 12-40mm f2.8 for the 12-100 and pack the 300mm f4, so I'll have the camera, 7-14, 12-40 and 40-150mm f2.8's and the 300mm f4. Actually carries quite comfortably, surprisingly so.

Oh well, here's a recent image, captured with the E-M1 Mark and 12-40mm f2.8, raw file processed in DXO Photo Lab and used the Kodak TMax 100 Black & White profile..

Only in Texas.....LOL, with the 300mm f4 M. Zuiko..

Last Saturday morning during one of my twice-weekly hikes around White Rock Lake, with the 7-14mm f2.8 M. Zuiko..

All great photos with the third being my favorite. Just curious, how long is the walk around the lake?


So you want to be a better photographer? Open your eyes and take a look at what is all around you.

9.3 miles. If I'm just walking it can be completed in 3 hours. The mornings where I take off early to catch the sunrise and shoot as I walk around usually takes 5 hours. I've been doing it most Saturday and Sunday mornings, weather permitting, for over a year now.

I COULD actually catch a trail near my apartment, walk to and THEN circle the lake, but that's be close to a 16-18 mile round-trip, LOL.
