There is nothing better than grabbing a medium iced from PJ’s, having a smoke, and submitting to the angry heat of the southern […]

Fuji X-Pro1 & Pocket Wizards

With a Little Help from my Friend

So, this past weekend while I was in Maine, where I lived as a child, I went rooting through my grandmother’s storage. What I happened to find was my first computer: a Macintosh Plus, which in 1986 cost a mere $2599 and had 1MB of memory (expandable to 4MB). The Mac Plus was an “affordable” […]
