Sunny 16

Remember those days when this simple rule was used successfully if you hadn't an exposure meter?!

With our tiny 1" sensors, it doesn't work to use f/16 that well, but it sure works with my DX and FX cameras!

still use it - or have it hard wired into my brain by now.  Always helpful for me to estimate what combinations of camera I expect to need outside.  Inside I am hopeless however.

;-)! We old geezers are a bit hopeless, aren't we?! 
I have just figured out what's wrong with me, and just need confirmation from my doctor.
I have been sneezing, coughing, and had swollen feet for years now, and am very tired most of the day. No infections have been found, but everything screams COPD, although I'm not a smoker. We will soon know.
C'est la vie, pas en rose, mais passable.
