Fujifilm X-E3

FujiFilm X-E3 with a red anodized aluminum shutter button

The Fujifilm X-E3 is the third Fujifilm camera I’ve bought, and the best so far.


Ginger’s Glasses – I find them everywhere. I scoop them up from their hiding places and put them somewhere they can be found. She must have 10-20 pairs.

I received a request for a profile pic for my voluntary work, and I don’t like the goofy picture I’m using for my profile at work, so I got out the tripod, set up the camera, and asked Ginger to take some pictures and got both fixed.

Kitchen Table Still Life – I was eating dinner when I noticed the light on these pots that Ginger threw at a pottery class she’s been taking. One-minute read, +1

Milwaukee Fastback 48-22-1990 – I’ve finally got around to replacing the pocket knife I gave to Katie. One-minute read, +1

Sunday cleaning & oiling. Sig Sauer P938 – I’ve been trying to get my hands on a P938 for a long time (over a year). Everywhere I’ve checked they have been out of stock. This is the 9mm version of Katie’s 380 Caliber Sig Sauer P238 handgun. One-minute read, +1

March Hibiscus – we moved our hibiscus plants inside for the winter and they have rewarded us by flowering every now and then.

Bedroom Plants – Same old story, I liked the light.

Gary in the workshop – Hindsight being the gem that it is, I now know it was a huge mistake to make the doors and not get them ‘off the shelf.’ +3

Gear Closet update – Still plenty left to do. Bottom shelf and kick space, shelf fronts, and … doors to make.

Back at the trailhead – Trip over, and a modest 19.15 miles hiked and 2,000 ft. of elevation climbed. Time for a shower and a beard trim! And, of course, some end of trip thoughts. Two-minute read

Another backpacking fashion show – Not. Here I am all packed up, ready to head back to the trailhead and showing off what the well-dressed backpacker is wearing nowadays. One-minute read

Reptilian – I don’t know what this type of rock is called, but it is very reptilian in appearance.

Day Four. Camped in open oak woodland – It was the warmest night so far, so a good night not to have set the tarp. +3

Four-thirty and it’s starting to get dark – it’s a problem with camping in hollows- The sun is still catching the top of the hill opposite. There’s rain in the forecast for tomorrow, but I decided not to set my tarp tonight. I wanted to fall asleep enjoying the stars from the comfort of my hammock. I love that chair, but it is one of the most dangerous pieces of gear I own… Two-minute read, +1

Seven Miles – and just under a mile to go before I set up camp for the night – I ended up hiking a total of 7.76 miles with 730 ft. of elevation gained.

Fall color on the Pilot Trail (heading east) – Hercules Glades Wilderness.

Hercules Glades Wilderness from the Pole Hollow Trail – Looking east. Two-minute read, +1

Long Creek, Hercules Glades Wilderness, Fall 2021 #2 – Wide angle view.

Long Creek, Hercules Glades Wilderness, Fall 2021 #1 – I set myself a deadline of 2 p.m. to arrive at Long Creek. If I made it by then, I’d stop for lunch at The Falls. Otherwise, I’d carry straight on and head up the creek and the Pole Hollow Trail, to head for my campsite for the night.

On The Devil’s Den East (Upper Pilot) Trail – The fall light is wonderful. However, I need a blaze orange cap or a blaze orange hatband, because the low angle of the light makes it impossible to see where I’m going at times. Plus a bonus stereo image version! +1
