Minimal fiddling

Sources of light The black and white JPEG images from my PEN-F are sufficiently charming to my eyes, such that I have yet to fully grapple with the intricacies of my new chosen Adobe replacement software (ASDsee and Affinity); but I am sure I will get round to it once I have stopped stressing about whatever is happening in my chest. In the meantime there is something liberating about wandering…

Pattaya is awash with seamen

For it is the International Fleet Review and vessels from many nations are parked out in the bay, for reasons that remain unclear to me.

Test two

Having confirmed that the much maligned tracking focus of the PEN-F was capable of capturing windsurfing shots, I was eager (well, not "eager", I am too old to be eager about anything; let's say "moderately interested") in pointing the PEN at another moving object. Purely by chance I found out that there was a round of the Asian Karting Championship at Bira yesterday, so off I went. Loads of karts…
