New Camera DMC-FT4

After my DMC-FT3 died on a trip to the Tango Peninsula, Panasonic was kind enough to send me a new one, a newer model and in different color :).

The DMC-FT4 is basically the same as the previous model with a few new functions. The panoramic mode is interesting but nothing that can’t be achieved in post.

Amazing Autumn

It’s not just the colours, It’s the food, the food….

Sure the colours are amazing and the photography is simple, point, shoot and you have yourself a great shot, And then….. And then it gets boring.

Maybe I need to spend some time on flickr stealing some ideas 🙂

Hitting the bonk

Hitting the wall or Hitting the bonk for some reason or another is pronounced “hanger knock” ハンガーノック Hanga-Nokkuin Japanese.

Generally, I find myself hitting the wall during autumn, I don’t know why? maybe it’s the cool Awaji Island winds that zap my energy, or maybe it was just the lack of sleep the night before

After a meagre 30 kilometres of cycling, I hit the wall and…. me hit it hard. Luckily the route is jampacked with convenience stores which stock hundreds of sugary caregivers like this “lifeguard” to recharge my poor, zapped body 🙂
