February 2024

Looking at the new Fuji X100VI made me think of the old (and often repeated) mantra: “It is not about the gear!” What a load of crap! It is totally about the gear – but probably not in the way most people think. It is not about the technical specs (more megapixels!), but about the feeling a certain camera invokes. It is just a tool yes, but if I (very much) enjoy using it – and it compels me to pick it up when it is just sitting on my desk – I will make more and better images.

All of the ten most recent videos under my YouTube subscriptions tab are about the Fuji X100VI. (I am not buying a new camera!)

Trying to explain to my six-year-old daughter why she can’t listen to her favorite radio plays from Apple Music on her (my old) iPod.

Had bookmarked it a while ago and was finally able to watch this beautiful documentary about a handful of craftspeople who maintain musical instruments for school children: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xttrkgKXtZ4 Recommended!

I really enjoy reading various blogs lately and I found a little bit of time to work on mine over the weekend.

2023 Retrospective

Mario and Yoshi after beating Bowser in Super Mario Bros. Wonder

My six-year-old and I just beat Super Mario Bros. Wonder! What a delightful game. Highly recommended. We are looking forward to exploring more and finding all the wonder seeds we missed so far.

Finally switched my photo blog to Kirby 4. I had to do nothing, it just worked. πŸ™Œ (Well, other than uninstalling the wonderful Commentions plugin, which is no longer developed.) I really like the new and improved panel. πŸ‘Œ Can’t stress enough what an absolute pleasure it is to use Kirby.

If everything goes as planned, I will actually use it every day from January 1st, when I start another 365 project (366 actually) of daily photo blogging. Wish me luck! 🀞

I think I am ready to start a new 365 project… πŸ€”
