I may have shown this vista before. I shot it again on Sunday after our tandem ride. I'm standing in the road with our house to the left. The road runs through our property through an easement, so both barns on the sides of the road are ours.

A pic from yesterday's ride.
We are finally seeing some fall colors in some of the trees in the North Texas area.

Retirement Party?

Well... sort of. Today I am retiring my faithful "old" Leica D-Lux typ 109. It has been a wonderful camera for the four years I've owned it, but it's seen a lot of wear and tear over that time.

The coup de grace came when I crashed my Peugeot Canyon Express into the rocks down by the Mississippi river, with the Leica strapped diagonally across my chest.

While the crash broke my wrist and bruised my ribs, the camera escaped with only a gouge in the bamboo hand-hold and a ding in the aperture ring on the lens.

Although it still seems to work, the images are not as sharp as they once were. And besides, my girls have bought me a D-Lux 7 for Christmas.

So "Old 109" is going up on the shelf next to my old Pentax K1000, Canon A1, and Nikon F3. Here are a few highlights from this camera's short career, with apologies for any I may have used here in the past:




























Number Seven's debut will be delayed a bit, because none of the photo processing software out there supports the new, proprietary .RWL files it shoots yet.

But it is the middle of winter, the ugly season here in the frozen north, so I'm not missing anything while I wait.

@Drillium Dude
The Cub House in San Marino CA had a Toy Drive/Bike Show/Car Show/ Swapmeet. I didnt speak to its owner but from the looks of it it seems it was neglected and abandoned for years.

Four days a week I lean the bike against this wall before unlocking the entrance door to work. Next, I wheel the bike inside, and park it in a storage room for 10 hours, until it’s time ride home...

a few weeks ago we had a warm day. My 9 year old and I decided to go stretch the legs of his new to him Cannondale on a bike path. There was a spot in the path where it was flooded and was under at least two feet of water. Since it was towards the end of our trip we went for it, both of us getting pretty soaked in the process. The laugh that came out of him when he took his turn going through the water made it all worth it. Was a good day. Plus we had nachos.

First Shots With D-Lux 7

I've finally found a way to process the .RWL files this new camera puts out. It involves converting .RWL to .DNG before opening it in another program to convert to .TIFF

Then I can process them in Lightroom 6. What a PITA!

So the weather report called for fog this morning, and I drove over to the High Bridge to see what that looked like. This was about 30 minutes before dawn. Tripod, ~12 second exposure on ISO200 at f11. Not much fog; lots of frost though.



At least someone (not me) was up and around on a bicycle this morning.



Or maybe last night? I wonder where they slept...

I'll be riding later today, when the temp gets near 40°F. More photos to come...?

As promised; first riding pics with the D-Lux 7:












Other than the processing hassles, it seems to shoot pretty well. But I kind of wish they hadn't added all the complicated new "features". Near as I can tell so far, I won't be using any of them.

One night last week we were awakened by a noise outside, then voices and work trucks and flashing lights. The next morning we found this



You can't see it so well in the pic but the bottom line is the top of the pole had burnt off. Thanks to the linemen who spent so much of their sleep time fixing it.

Chilly SoCal winter ride thru Somis, 42° at the start, 66° at the finish, 37 miles later. Good times on the old Super Course.

Surfs was low one day and picked up a few days later...we have had a number of great days, especially late afternoon.
The weather was nice, no bike riding but that's not why we are here...we came to "ride" the surf!
Very balmy in the evening with the trade winds blowing...looking forward to Christmas tomorrow.
Best, Ben
Excuse the image quality of the iPhone
