Here’s another ‘what is it?’ for you. Fish gills? Cooling fins on a car radiator? No—as you probably guessed—it’s a mushroom. Not the kind you can eat—it’s the kind that plagues your lawn when the sun shines after a rain.

I enjoy shooting food. I don't do it well enough for Bon Appetit to come knocking on my door with an assignment, but I do get hungry when I edit.

I collect arrows. No, not the kind with feather fletching that archers launch from bows. I collect images of arrows, mainly those painted on pavement. I guess I have hundreds of them, but sadly they’re scattered all over the place because I didn’t realize I was collecting them until a couple years ago.

After more than 40 years of actively taking photographs, I’m very pleased that I can say that I am still finding new things to do—including many exciting things I’ve never done before.

Pentax K-x

It could be that the good people at Pentax have gone batty. They put way too much stuff in the new Pentax K-x camera. It’s priced slightly above the most expensive compact cameras (in the sub-$600 range with a Pentax 18-55mm zoom lens) and is offered in three colors (red, white and blue) plus basic black.

If you shoot video with a DSLR or camcorder that uses SD memory cards, be sure to use a card that is fast enough. Since the introduction of SDHC, cards are labeled with a Speed Class that indicates the sustained data transfer speed. Class 2 cards deliver a sustained read/write speed of 2MB per second. Class 6 operate at 6MB/sec. It’s an easy standard to understand.
