Fuji FinePix F30

Photograph of a Fujifilm Finepix F30 digital camera with the lens extended (on).

My Fujifilm Finepix F30 is the first digital camera I bought back in 2006. I still like the pictures it takes. It continues to work (2022), and every now and then I give it an outing.

While Lanie’s away we’ll go have a double dip cone with the big kids, and steal their glasses for a photo opportunity. Lanie’s away at camp, so we took the big kids out for a treat without the distraction of a bouncy middle schooler. Extras

Vodka, tonic, and Indiana Jones. That’s just what was needed to relax at the end of a stress-filled day.

Shopping Day (365:158)

My legs and two cats (356:157) – Carefully framed to remain family friendly, and no, there are no outtakes.

Wall + Gary = Today’s picture (365:156)

Van Repairs (365:154) – A few days ago the van’s AC went on the blink again. This time it’s jammed on, which is better than it not working at all. It blows air even when the fan’s turned off. 2 pictures

Pumping Gas (365:152) – Is no longer a gas. In fact, it’s darned expensive, even though the price has now dropped back slightly to $3.53 a gallon.

I guess there’s no need to explain why. I found these in a very nifty Farmers shop we visited today. It had all sorts of farm related goodies.

Waking up (365:150) – For once we didn’t hang around too long drinking coffee and eating breakfast, though it was still ten am before we were back on the trail. Two-minute read, 7 pictures

Lunch by the bluffs on Long Creek (365:149). Two-minute read, 8 pictures

Just before I stuck my head in the falls behind me (365:148) – Invigorating was one word for it. Three-minute read, +9

Off backpacking for the weekend (365:147). Two-minute read

Lights, camera, inaction (365:145) – This was going to be another of those late night leaning against the wall shots.

Return (365:144) – Second day at the computer working on websites. The work’s done and posted, as illustrated in today’s photo. All I need is the customer feedback, complete the inevitable changes and then to make it live. I guess I ought to clean my keyboard – this looks disgusting. One-minute read

Late night glass of water (365:144) – Well, it is a picture, and I took it today. It meets the 365 Days criteria, what more could I want? Whatever artistic excellence and inspiration there was is on the decline again.

Antibiotic (365:143) – The wonders of hindsight enable me to declare this ‘the week of the digit’. It also enables me to declare this the week of extreme photographic, and probably documentary apathy. There’s a chance it might end up being only four days of digits and not a week. We’ll see.

Sunday night movie (365:142) – It was another day of missed photo opportunities and a sobering reminder of the fragility of our existence. Two-minute read, 3 pictures

Muddy feet (365:141) – After yesterday’s rain it was a bit muddy on the Sac River trail today, but I revel in squelching through mud and splashing through creeks so I had great fun. One-minute read, 5 pictures

Sock puppet by Gary Allman

Sock puppet (365:140) – It was late and I was running out of ideas, so here’s me and the sock I’ve been wearing on my hand at night to stop my stitches getting caught.
