Begun in 2008, it's unlikely that I'll regularly make entries to this blog, so do check my main site at

This blog is more likely to include posts of a political nature - and one that requires sisu on the part of many!

Archives dated prior to March 2008 are entries moved across from either LiveJournal or Octant.

Now THAT's a camera!!!

Having recently returned from an overseas trip and bemoaning the lack of a good camera (though we did have a small and quite reasonable ‘travelling’ one at hand: a compact panasonic Lumix), I could not help but check to see whether the Leica M9, which is definitely out of my price range, was finally available… and found not only it, but its limited edition version.
