*Good bye 2014, it’s been real.


As with many things these days, I am a bit late to the party.  Let me be the last person to wish you and yours a happy, healthy and prosperous new year.  While 2014 saw many positive events for me, it was as challenging a year as I’ve yet had.  I’m a pretty open book and tend to speak candidly here as I have found this blog to be a collective journey in many ways, and on top of that, a bit of a personal diary in that I can vent, ramble on and air my praise or frustration to the ether, while sharing with the community that frequently stops by to keep me company.  In a weird way, that is supposed to be a thank you for stopping by.  Thank you for reading my ongoing ramblings and thank you for the continued interaction and support.  I love photography, I love writing, and this blog enables me to do both.  If it were not for you, I’d just as soon be talking to a brick wall about my passions which of course would quickly pin me as a crazy person, so thank you for allowing me to hide that from my friends, wife and children.

*Thank you 4/3 Rumors!

The folks at 43rumors.com were nice enough to link my review of the Panasonic GF1 from their website.  Stop by and say hello to them.  They, much like myself, are just working stiffs doing it for the love of photography.  Support the little guy when you can and if you are interested, by buying a camera through the links to Adorama, Amazon, B&H and the like from their website, you help them out.  Thanks again guys and keep it up.  Very informative and entertaining reading on a daily basis!  (Check out the info regarding the impending LX3 successor and G-series release on their site today.)
