...its remembering the details that presents the problem.Here am I again catchin up and wondering what has happened since September is a stretch but here goes again,  lol. If I 'member correct did another MilkyWay session with mixed results . We thouhgt the windmills would provide a more dramatic foreground than we got. The best one was Mike's Tree shot. But we have plans for next seasons attempts. A motorized slider has been added for some motion timelapse work next spring.

Packed Bluberry and grabbed friend John for a photoroll to the Oregon Coast. Chased sunsets for 5 days and managed only one. But we had a large time running the coast from Newport to Astoria. The gallery is here. This takes us to October and the Scott Kelby World Wide Photo Walk. With help from friend Cindy in St John we took a group of 22 togs around the county for some great foto ops. Check it out here.

November came quietly and mild but not much inspiration. Then while FBi'ing with son we orchestrated a trip to Japan. So I'm headed that way this spring. But the trip caused me to rethink the camera bag and I decided to take the mirrorless kit on this journey. But all I had was the EOS M and the 22 f2, which is crazy good, but I wanted a skosh of focal range so I picked up the Tamron 18-200. Not the fastest but great stabilization. I've since added an 11-22 IS and a Sirui travel tripod and all is well.

Cooper's first BD was on Turkey Day so we celebrated late and I used the M for documenting that and the feast. Got thinking about Japan and the M and I thinks, I do, maybe I should start shooting the M so I know it well, hmmm. Anyway Christmas came and I M'd it. Then four of us togs rented the 800 f5.6 Canon L and went looking for eagles. An interesting four days and yes I hooked it up to the M, but I used the 5D3 for the birds, lol!

But  ponder I did the challenge of shooting only the M for all of 2015!!! Since me first large shoot will probably be in Japan I've got lots of time to practice. Waffle, waffle, then the Spokane Camera Club arranged a shoot at the Bing Crosby Theatre and I signed the M up to tackle the afternoon. I'm pleased with the images produced here. More procrastination on my end. Started wondering around the neighborhood during the foggy weather we've been having and again the M is providing great images.

So here we are its SuperBowl Sunday, February 1, just yesterday did a foto challenge with some togs from IOPC at Riverfront Park. It was a 24 shot max prop swap shoot with an hour time limit. I provided a hockey puck and drew a gargoyle. Haven't seen the images yet but again took the mirrorless kit. This pushed my button and. I know a month late, but I'm shooting the M kit this year as a personal challenge! So wish me luck and GO HAWKS!!!!!
