The term "bridge camera"
I always wonder about what a bridge camera "bridges", from what to what. I can see how beginners can become confused, especially if they started out with one and are completely happy with the results. I can understand a distinction between pocket cameras, fixed lens cameras, and system cameras. Oh yeah, and cameras that look like cellphones.
India - The best camera is the one in your hand!!
Was out attempting shooting landscape with my Nikon D810 and Tamron 15~30 when this scene unfolded. This mix of birds feasting on fish in a shallow. The whole action packed scene sequence was thrilling to shoot.

A few from recent visit to New York City
My wife & I spent 4 days in NYC this week. We were both very limited in walking, but we did manage 2 - 3 miles a day.
We did see "Beautiful", the Broadway show about the musical life of Carol King. It was fabulous.
Here are a few images from our visit: (Best viewed in Download)
1. My wife's new T Rex friend - Museum of Natural History
2 & 3. Katz's Delicatessen - not good for you but sure was delicious (Pastrami sandwich). The counter has 23 slicers who cut pastrami & corned beef by hand. My 2nd job in life was a deli counter man. I worked at a variety of delicatessens for over 45 years. I loved watching the operation. The crowd is CRAZY!

Thanks for viewing.
Anyone have strong views about UV filters?
In the course of researching my Lumix Prime, I stumbled across this comment from Amadou Diallo in the on-line Wirecutter blog.
"There's another cross-brand issue we’ve learned about recently: built-in UV filters. Panasonic puts the filter in their camera bodies while Olympus places it in the lens. If you use a Panasonic lens on an Olympus body, there's no UV filter, so in some circumstances, you may get chromatic aberration (purple fringes along high-contrast edges). This can be fixed by adding a UV filter to the front of the lens, but that’s an inelegant workaround.

These photos were taken 20 minutes apart. I love how much the changing light changes the feeling of the results.
