1.) Spiritual enlightenment: where a person recognizes his true being as infinite consciousness, not to be confused with “intellectual enlightenment” which is just more mind stuff. 2.) Growth hormone: stimulating natural growth hormone production by fasting every day. 3.) Autophagy: triggering this healing and cleansing state by periodically fasting 24 to 48 hours.

Digital photography is digital photography. Why not model many of the olden processes, such as: Daguerreotype, Calotype, Albumen, Ambrotype, Tintype, or Collodian.
Nature rambles on, unaffected by man made clocks.

There’s a product called “No Salt,” which is 100% potassium chloride. Most people get plenty of salt without consciously adding it. The ratio of potassium to salt should be around 4 to 1. [The trouble is, as Dr. Greger points out, that PC tastes better on (or in) some things than others. 50% PC seemed like a good compromise. I don't use much salt anyway, and always check the ingredients list and stay away from packaged foods with too much sodium. --Mike]

Destacado Señor Don Quixote! 🤠👍

No doubt camera manufacturers want to make money, but black-and-white photography seems to be inextricably linked to the darkroom. I would venture to say that most of the greatest black-and-white photographs were created in the darkroom more so than in the camera. It doesn’t seem possible that digital black-and-white photography could live up to that. Ansel Adams or Eugene Smith working in Lightroom?

“Too much sanity may be madness. And maddest of all, to see life as it is and not as it should be.” —Señor Don Quixote
As good as these cell phone cameras are becoming, or have become, the real advantage is instant access to the Internet for distributing or publishing your photos. Maybe someday Nikon and Canon will figure that out.
Senor Don Quixote! 🤠👍
You complain without ever questioning how this situation came to pass, or even who you voted for? Your tears are sweet.
The Leica M10 “Reporter” is a boutique-like replica of an actual photojournalist’s working camera. 📷😂👍
I suppose simplicity is not for everyone. Most photographers are not Henry David Thoreau, and they seem to rather enjoy buttons, and knobs, and levers, and switches. And if their cameras were simple, God forbid, they might have to amuse themselves solely with the labor of photography. I know, I’m not Henry David Thoreau either. I don’t yet own a Nikon Z9, but I know I could get lost for days just playing with the switchgear. Photography is too much work.
Hey Mike, that Nikon Z camera looks awfully good with you. 📷😃👍
Art transcends the individual, and art is mankind's highest expression, separated, and distinctly apart, from the rough and tumble realities of the artist's ordinary life. Even if the artist's art arises from his ordinary flawed existence, it should be judged on its own, distinct from the artist, as a gift from the unknown.

Mike's elevating his prose. 🤣👍

It's rich getting lectured by Biden voters. 🤣
We have simple cameras; they're called smartphones, and they're ubiquitous.
Hey Mike, you should somehow check out the 299 dollar Nikon Z 28/2.8 on a Z50, that is if you like a 42mm lens dripping with "character."
So the New Year's resolution for last year was censorship? 🤣

This seems too obvious to even say, but what about photography? Portraits, make prints and sell them, and so forth. You're without a doubt good at more than one thing.

Mike, I saw comparison photos between Nikon's new 40/f2, preproduction, and the Z 50/1.8 S. The 50 is a little sharper to my eye, but the 40 has more pleasing bokeh. With its plastic lens mount and all, the Nikon Z 40/f2 seems to be a "character" lens, and is not as achingly sharp as the other Z lenses.
Hey Mike, Nikon's coming to market very soon with a compact/ pancake 40mm Z lens. It's sure to be a stunner. Pair it with a Z5 or Z6 and you've got a pretty svelte package there. BTW, I just don't see how a tennis player, in this case Novak Djokovic, can be considered the GOAT after getting trounced in a Calendar Year Grand Slam match. That's just not something a GOAT should have on his record. Just my opinion.
I'm going through this right now over the Nikon 70-200/2.8 VR S. I want to be covered in case I decide to become a Paparazzi.
When I'm looking down the barrel of an expensive photography purchase I just pretend I only have a week to live, and I can't take the money where I'm going. Who knows, it could even be true. 📷😃👍

Like you Mike, I've become fascinated with the square format, but instead of committing myself to it on my full frame cameras, I've been shooting all my iPhone photos square, and I really like it. Since these photos aren't serious, just note-taking really, I don't suffer the angst of regret of having botched a serious photo because I shot it square. Plus it's good practice too.
