My Spider and I are very happy to see this.
Friends, I want to thank you for your continued visits and comments these last days, even when I haven’t been able to stop by your own blogs to check in. I hope to catch up very soon.
Here is some new baby clematis peeking out of last year’s remains. Click my “Filaments” tag if you’re interested in a very long history….
The dial on the camera I use for macros is broken, so I’m only able to shoot in F/2.0 now. 🙂

Ha, great to see this. Sorry to hear about your camera.

Thanks, Richard. I’ll work out something with my camera, I’m sure. I do have a new camera, too, which I’m still learning to use, but I just love my LX5.

Is your spider back? I thought she disappeared!
April 28, 2013 at 8:58 pm
Well, I think of her as generations of spiders now, a Meta-Spider, if you will, for I am sure to see her offspring this spring, if not her very self. 🙂

Your photography is a showcase of the quality of
Panasonic Camera. Unless you broken it by a silly mistake,
You should deserve to have your camera repaired free.
I’ll have a word with them. Please Email me your full name and

First thought regarding your broken dial–what an unfortunate handicap to your usual ability to present the impressive depth of field that we’ve come to know and love from you; second thought–it presents a very interesting challenge. Sometimes I like to go afield with only one lens, and sometimes it’s even a fixed-focal length lens, to challenge myself to see what I can do to maximize the limited range of possibility. Now I’m looking forward to some really selective focus with your especially shallow DOF!

Very nice words, Gary. Thank you. I accept the challenge! 🙂

ah, the neverending story – beautifully captured in all its delicacy

Yes, this is one story that keeps me in its grips. I’m always pulled back to it. Thank you for your nice words.

Sorry to hear about the camera, but you’ll prove that it’s the photographer and not the camera that makes the photo, I’m sure.

Thank you, Allen. Just a word about the Lumix. I took many thousands of photographs with it (really who knows how many) and turned that dial thousands and thousands of times, so I imagine it had to give out at some point… I don’t know… I’m checking into it.

I hope mine doesn’t do the same. I’ve also taken a lot of pictures with it. I’d miss it a lot.

It’s been such a relentlessly hot spring here in Budapest, our clematis has already passed its peak bloom. I expect the thrashing thundershower we’re having as I write this is whipping off many of the fading petals. Enjoy your slow spring!
