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.

Studying in the back yard (365:137) – The yard needs to be mowed, we’ll have to get a kid on to it. I had a quiet day studying. It’s my final class for this academic year on Thursday. Lots of reading has been done, just the course notes to read and exercise to get out of the way and I’m finished.

Remain Calm. This is only a drill Tee shirt.

Remain Calm – This is only a drill… (365:136) – This is not today’s picture, it’s a picture I took back in December 2010. But it is very representative, as this is the tee shirt I just had to wear today. Anyway it amused me. My actual picture for today is at the bottom of this post and shows my cut hand without bandages. Three-minute read, 3 pictures

Three x-rays, one tetanus shot and twelve stitches later (365:135) – Do not try this at home. It was a fairly normal Sunday, church from 8.30am until around midday. Back at home I finished processing the outstanding wedding pictures, and then for a break I decided to work on my Mark III backpacking stove.

Late-night Saturday (365:134) – Another day processing pictures. While everyone else went about doing family stuff I stayed put at the computer processing more of the outstanding pictures. I did fairly well, and I ought to be able to finish them tomorrow.

Processing (365:130) – I awoke in the middle of the night to the sound of a crash, with kitties in the house you get used to it, and I turned over and went back to sleep. I didn’t give it a second thought until Ginger came into the bedroom this morning saying how sorry she was. In her hand was the Nikon, in two pieces.
