Whew! I started a new temporary job lately at a mid-sized aerospace corporation that has me staying busy for numerous hours so I haven't wanted to step away from my family to read or post for 3 of the past 4 weeks. Just this week, we welcomed our second addition to the family as baby Malachi joined big brother Eli and my wife Nikki on Sunday night. He's a peaceful little fellow and quite delightful to have with us. Hopefully he'll stay that way for many years to come and I'll find some time to post more manual focus family

Congratulations Alan! Nice of you to drop by. I hope all are doing well.

Chin, nice story and well written as usual. I wonder who the first person to eat a Squid was? What were they thinking?

I ask questions like that all the time. Who was the first person to smoke? To drink coffee? To eat foie gras?

Today's posting is from a short trip I took with my mother-inlaw, niece and wife to a small water village close to Shanghai. These towns are built along canals and have existed for many hundreds of years. The bridge seen in one shot below is almost 900 years old, having been last rebuilt during the 18th century.

Shot on Provia slide film with the 24mm f/2.0 AIS lens.

Lovely story Chin and another evocative image. I'm glad you were able with the jetty shot to receive such outstanding help from the local administrators.

I have a story to tell too but it is more horror story than adventure. Sue was scheduled to fly home yesterday on JetBlue airlines from Fort Lauderdale, an airport forty miles from her mothers home. The flight was scheduled to depart at 6:34 p.m. and Sue dutifully arrived two hours earlier, unaware that her flight had been pushed back twenty minutes. I signed up for email notification of flight times since I'd eventually be picking her up at the San Francisco airport. The emails kept coming in... 7:00 p.m, then 7:10, 7:20, 7:40, 8:30, 9:00, 9:30, 10:30, 11:00, 11:40, 12:00 then CANCELLED. The plane she was to fly on we learned was coming from New York where bad weather was delaying flights. When they announced cancellation the reason was pilot fatigue... I guess because the flight crew had been waiting as long as the passengers for their plane to arrive... Passenger fatigue, of course, NEVER enters the equation.

Yes, Sue was given a voucher for a stay at a Holiday Inn hotel and was directed to the bus stop where the shuttle would pick her up. Unfortunately, the clerk didn't tell her shuttles didn't run that late. It was another passenger who was waiting for a shuttle to a different hotel that gave her the bad news. So back inside the terminal where another clerk said, "No, the shuttle doesn't run this late." She was given a voucher for a taxi to the hotel.

Of course, the problem was there is no direct flight to San Francisco today with a seat available so she was offered a flight that would take her through BOSTON... ten and a half hours of flying AND an hour and a half sitting in another airport. She opted for a direct flight on Saturday but JetBlue said the second night at the hotel is on her.

This morning I got an email telling me she was driving back to Delray Beach to spend the day and night at her mother's home. Then she'll pay $55 tomorrow morning to return to the airport, HOPING her JetBlue flight will depart on time.

We've booked on that flight twice and both times experienced multi-hour delays. I checked an online resource and learned this particular flight has an on-time rate of 20%. Time to find a different airline because JetBlue sucks.

Sorry to hear about Sue's flight delays. It reminds me of my return travel on my honeymoon. We spent 31 hours in the air (and 9 hours of layovers) when it should have been 19 (including layovers). Bad weather and the plane needed repairs twice made for a nerve wracking flight home. As long as she makes it home safe, that is all that matters.

Repaired two other pieces of gear over the last week, a 400mm Vivitar and a Nikon SB26 flash that had severely corroded battery terminals. Never taken a flash apart, a lot more complicated in there than a lens.

Decided to post a current selfie, and to show my immediate family as well. As Latin Americans we have a large extended family.

Please understand I am not trying to be pretentious, it is just that there are very few pictures of my self as I photograph everyone else and hide from the lens. Rather like this photo because of the little details, like my coat over the camera case, (accidental), and LPD 22, the USS San Diego on the background.

This is Abner he is finishing med school in Guadalajara, I have a sense he will stay there, he likes it too much. That would be fine, I plan to retire in Mexico anyways.

Beautiful family you have there! I am just like you, it is a rare day when I have a picture taken of me. I am usually the man behind the curtain. I like the fact you have your jacket over your camera bag, makes me grin.
