    And lastly because I find these things interesting. Note the building on the right side at the top. There's a few of these facade buildings about but in some cases people live in these thin buildings.

    Manual mode. Note that it blew the sky out like a Chrissy Tiegen twitter clapback, causing me to tweak the settings pre shot. Also, there's no telephoto access in manual either. Attachment 141341Attachment 141342
    Great photos! I think it's interesting that telephoto isn't present in manual mode, as that's something I wouldn't have expected to hear.

    So yesterday we went to the Normandy coast to a place called Étretat. Yeah I can't pronounce it either.

    Also realised something about the camera.

    In 16:9 the image is zoomed in more than if the setting is 4:3.

    I didn't realise this until yesterday when I went to Paris so I probably missed some good pictures at Etretat because of this. I'm not upset by this just annoyed.
    That's quirky! The photos you shared have been very nice, so I wouldn't have realized (until the example images you shared). That's unfortunate that Sony chose to do that.

    We will have to wait and see.
    I'm already liking the slightly smaller size. And as I have said before I don't mind the bezels on the screen.

    So the fruiting season has ended in the farm. No more durians, no more lanczones (locally called langsat) ... it was a long three months of hard work.
    Now its back to maintenance ie pruning, weeding, manuring...etc


    We don't have any farmhands, we do everything ourselves, ie, just me, my missus & her brother. This would be a temp situation.
    Our priority would be clearing more access roads/path. Figuring the best site for a small house, and building several huts both for rest stops and using the roof to harvest rainwater.
    And hiring workers cos it's way to tough without helpers or any form of mechanisation.

    Been buying a bunch of extras for the hike on Saturday.
    Microspikes - there is about 100 ft of ice on the trail.
    Water filtration - don't want to carry too much water
    Energy gel, energy chews, hydration tabs - again reduce weight
    Definitely a new backpack since extra weight for layered clothing
    Red LED headlamp - going to start the hike at 2AM
    Liner socks - no blisters please
    Extra moleskin - my ankles are still blistered from San Jacinto

    A few extra things might pop up by Thursday night.

    What do those fruits taste like?

    So, Mr. Clue, our teams are 0-4. Maybe they traded the Dolphins defense for future considerations? Meanwhile, in Duvall County, it's another scene of the star DB in a contract year yelling at the head coach. I know Ramsey doesn't like losing, but if he keeps it up, he's not playing for us next year - no matter how talented he is. The Giants look like giants ant eaters.

    At least Lamar Jackson looks great. And the Bucs are a .500 team. Carolina looks lost and Drew Brees is hurt. And if the Jets win tomorrow night, Laura might be saying "same old Browns". Hell of a start to the season, eh?
    It’s tough to be a fan in the 305 these days. Not only are the Marlins headed for their worst season ever, the ‘Phins are in full fustercluck-mode after trading last year’s #1 pick to the Steelers. Not counting the failed Chicago experiment, now I have to look forward to a Heat team without D-Wade (for real this time). The U has the craziest turnover chain going but you don’t get points for turnovers, just a 1-2 start. The site for the proposed stadium David Beckham is getting is a geological mess, I’m running out of sports to follow.

    It’s too damned hot down here to think about hockey so.......

    The size of a fruit can be as big a ping-pong or golf ball.
    Gotta peel away the skin to get to the sweet, white and juicy flesh, slightly sourish with unique but mild taste (some say it taste like grape/grapefruit combo!!)

    Wow...Pocket Casts is now free. On one hand, I'm glad. On the the other hand, I'm like dang, I paid for the browser version just a few months ago. I enjoy the app though and after reading the post why, I understand why they did this. It's an great cross platform (including web!) app.

    Edit: Since I paid for the browser version, I get Pocket Casts Plus free for 3 years. That's awesome!

    That's great to hear you are getting Pocketcasts Plus free for 3 years. I've never used the web version (and never even it existed), but I use the Android app, which I also purchased.
