back to basics

Although I frequently lurk, I have not posted for a long time.
But last week I retired

I have got very lazy and just use the EPL5 for (well composed ) snaps

From today, the E1 + 14-54 + Frank Spath's book are going to get a proper workout.
E1, E520, ED14-42, ED 40-150, 70-300, Various legacy including 50mm f2 macro.

Congratulations on your retirement Homer. I made the jump last year, can't see how I found time to work now

Re: back to basics

As others have hinted, more time 'to do' things is a huge misconception.

If you thought 9 'till 5 was hard graft, retirement is much, much harder... but more enjoyable.

You'll probably find there are not enough hours in the day so, catch the moments as they fly, as once they pass they are gone forever.

Happy retirement Homer.
It's not what inspires us that is important, it's where the journey takes us.
