  1. My first sale since the 15th. Encouraging to see that others are making some as well. I uploaded this image not long ago -- magazine use, mid $$, exclusive.
  2. That's good to hear. I just checked my sales report for the umpteenth time and saw that a mid $$ sale has been invoiced today. Whew! I was starting to get a bit worried there. 😂
  3. Hopefully I'll be able to afford at least the MkII by then. 😊 It is unusual these days to see a camera manufacturer keeping older models on the market. It's probably a smart move on Sony's part.
  4. Thanks for this. I lived in London for awhile a kid, and I remember my parents mentioning "bank holidays". In Canada, Banks are too greedy to take a holiday. 😉
  5. So yesterday was one of those mysterious "bank holidays" in the UK. Plus it was Memorial Day in the US. A double whammy, so to speak. Hopefully, there will be an end-of-month surge this week. Wouldn't know it today, though. 😐
  6. I came across this positive message (probably made by a child) on one of my recent walks around the hood --
  7. Yes, the pandemic is no joke. I'm not very optimistic about the whole thing at the moment. However, I think that "we're all in it together" is the most important message out there. It is what might eventually get us through all of this if enough people listen (and act). Thanks for the well wishes. I'm sure you'll continue to out-waltz most of us.
  8. After hearing all the positive comments, an RX100 is on my wish list, but I can't afford any new stuff at the moment. Fortunately, my smallish Sony a6000 plus a lens or two easily fit into a small camera bag, which is light enough not to bother my back. It would be nice to have something ultra-compact, though. I think that I'd have to use a wheelbarrow for the Nikon kit that you mentioned. They might have to carry me home on a stretcher if shopping bags were involved as well. 😩
  9. Nary a sale since the 15th, so May is starting to feel a bit like falling off a cliff --- --- --- --- 😲
  10. Same here, although I haven't really put much effort into it. A sad situation indeed, and unfortunately I think that things will get worse before they get better. Keeping the lid on the spread of the virus is going to get increasingly difficult. But that's depressing...
  11. People (myself included) lining up for "essentials" at a government liquor store in Vancouver
  12. When it was still possible to live a low-budget bohemian existence in Paris. I don't imagine that Henry would last long in Paris these days, even with June's help.
  13. It's tough to argue with ths sentiment...
  14. Thanks. I'll check out the video. Since I don 't intend to use the catalogue, I decided to delete the "previews" folders. It doesn't seem to affect the operation of the program, so I'll probably keep doing this to keep the catalogue from taking up too much space. I wish software designers would include more manual overrides for features that some users might not want. It would make life easier.
  15. Thanks for the info. I currently have less than 300 images in the catalog, and the catalog "cache" file already takes up over 500 MB on my SSD. I wonder what happens if I delete the cache? The "previews" in the cache take up most of the room. I don't even know what "previews" are.
  16. I think it is possible to go into the catalogue and delete images manually. If so, I'll probably try to do this if the catalogue gets too unruly and I end up not using it. I had a look at the differences between the "Express" version for Sony and the "Pro" version, and the features in the free software look to be all I need. Plus I'm a cheapskate both by design and by necessity. 😁
  17. Restaurants have been doing takeout here for several weeks. Some are now opening with limited outdoor and indoor seating, but most people aren't ready to go back. A smattering of stores have opened as well with restricted entrance. It's going to take a long time to return to any kind of normalcy.
  18. I'm not always a fan of drop-down and "slide-out" menus as they can disappear when you're in the middle of using them. However, this one seems to stay put and behave itself. The larger lettering is welcome as well.
  19. That looks like the front of a 1950's (?) American-made pickup truck on the left side of the frame. If the setting is somewhere in the USA, then that might explain the unorthodox lettering. Do the people sitting out front look Mediterranean?
  20. The writing certainly looks Greek. However, there are some odd (perhaps stylized) letters in the mix.
  21. It sounds as if the little wonders are serving you well. It's taking me awhile to jump on the bandwagon, but I've started saving up for 100/XIV, which should be out in a month or two. 😉
  22. OK then, I'll add it to my bucket list. Don't they sleep standing-up in Lincoln? 🌛
