Always Prepare the Surface Before Painting

The secret to a good paint job is good preparation of the surface. At least, that's what they always tell us.

Evidently the pros take a few shortcuts. The fellow that painted the lines on the street must not have noticed the dead pigeon.

The Pentax A10 in Florida

I had to spend a few days in Florida last week. The weather was generally nice, but cool and windy. One unusual evening brought severe storms and a tornado.

A conference occupied most of my time, but I managed to get a few shots with the Pentax A10. The more I use this little camera the more I like it. It's a great pocket camera.

I was particularly happy with the shake reduction and low light performance. Those features helped me take photos like this one taken in a reception held in an aircraft museum. Flash would have been useless. The place is a huge old hangar. Not much light to work with.

Click here to view the gallery. Nothing artistic here, just travel snapshots, but that is this camera's place in life.
