    Haa, Mustafa, If you were to be a shepherd in the mountain you would be John Muir. Your insights and unique take on the world open the doors for others.

    "I'm an artist. I don't take pictures, I make them."
    At the crux of it all is that I use whatever I have the experience and skill at using, and what is best suited to me and the end product.

    I was way too busy with photography yesterday (apart from being busy keeping dry!) and had MacDonalds while drying Pentaximus! No crime to give the kitchen a miss after a day of dodging drama. So, you can have your cake and eat it too...

    Oh Benji... I just laughed when drinking my coffee, making a mess. And I blame you for it.

    I agree with tkamiya - don't make such a big deal out of it. It's a camera, and pictures come out the other end. Just be thankful that you had the presence of mind to think critically about what gets your creative juices flowing, instead of just being like everybody else, a norm.

    The theater I work in is a multi-purpose venue. We show movies and live, stage shows.
    I always get people who come in to give lectures or play concerts who ask for wireless microphones. My stock answer is, "The best kind of wireless microphone is the kind you plug in."
    People don't believe me until they start to go out of range of the receiver, the batteries go dead or they get interference on the frequency the transmitter is set to. Try as I might, there is just no way to prevent these problems 100% of the time. When you use a wireless mic, that's just the way the game is played.

    People still demand to use the wireless and, every once in a while, the mic still goes bad.

    That's right about the time I come walking on stage, carrying a regular wired microphone, and hand it to the speaker.

    I just smile and don't say anything...
