big sister and little sister learning to fly kites, which they call, "teaching the kites how to fly"
Downtown Munich, man that is part of a tour group standing a bit behind everyone else.
Daddy, just one more run, please?
The expression on the face of "Oh my God, I am working with idiots"
Horrible case of JPEG smearing caused by setting the noise reduction too high. Looks like a crayon drawing by a nine year old instead of picture from the field at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta.
When winter is nearly here, the pomegranates split open so you know they are ripe. Then you see their hidden personalities.
Highly recommend this museum in Friedrichshafen if you are visiting with kids. Also the Dornier museum a few miles away is very good.
Forget the Schleissheim Aviation museum near Munich. Not nearly as good as these two museums if kids are involved. But in Munich, the Traffic Museum is excellent with kids.
Taken as I am jogging along side just before the sun goes down. All the pictures came out like this. LF1 handled the "shoot while jogging" situation amazingly well.

Nice review. As noted a straight out Petzval is obsolete by todays standards for digital cameras. But it is still a lens that is taught in optical engineering schools because it forms the basis of many other lenses.

antares103: For what reason would the camera be released only in Australia? This is a serious question.
Since it is for Australia only, one would have to guess it is some kind of local market condition. Need for lower price point maybe? Some weird import regulation? (I cant' imagine what though)
I have had the RX10 about a month and I am very happy with it. I would note however that it is a bit slow in AF/ shutter lag for photographing fast moving things like running dogs, active kids. Not that you can't do it or that the RX10 is slow. It is that just at this price level, cheaper DSLRs are much more responsive for those kinds of subjects. Image quality is excellent.
CameraLabTester: The Big Boss wants to regulate the thingamajig to prevent drone aficionados from slicing each other up, really...
... and what happened to it's inventor.
I am not sure what happened to the Segway inventor. The new owner of the company died going off a cliff in a Segway accident, but not the inventor (wikipedia article List of Inventors killed by their Inventions.)
I did read recently of young man killed by his model aircraft from a high speed collision. But I don't see that hazard with cameras hovering taking pictures - bullt to be stable and slow.
Japanese tourist. All the footsteps in the sand are where kids and adults were walking and playing earlier. Now everything is all quiet.
She wanted to try the lemon juice that we were using to dye Easter Eggs. The first time she ever tasted straight lemon juice..
The first half of the year there was a drought. When the rains came later, everything that normally would have bloomed earlier all bloomed at the same time. The fields were full of flowers of all kinds.
