2000 (updated : 2008.03.25)
I've been fiddling about with wood carving for several years and small woodworking projects. I've only ever made a couple of decent pieces, but I enjoy it as a hobby.
I've got a set of photos that can speak better to my carved items than any text. It features the small figurines and slightly larger projects I've been hacking at over the years.
Below are some other projects.
For X'mas of 2008, I made a wooden toy for my son. Here is the blow-by-blow.
I modified a toy "Thomas and Friends" train from my son's collection. I'm pleased with the results.
I carved a Buddha for some friends as a wedding gift.
Hi ! I just picked up XD-7 (had been procured in UK by original owner). Its really amazing to use this beauty. Really love it.
Hello...I have a Minolta XD-11 In Original Case w/ several Lenses and accesories including flash. I would appreciate it if you could advise me how and where to sell it. Guy Sullivan
"When in shutter-priority mode, the film speed appears in a box in the lower-right corner of the viewfinder..." Not the films speed but shutter speed.
Hello enjoyed reading about your lovely cameras I came across the XD7 in about 1986 and thought about buying a used one but had already bought an X-700.I now own 2 X-700's and an X-500 but still would buy a XD7 although I cannot make up my mind between black or chrome! It's interesting to hear the PX flashguns work with your XD7 which means I will be able to keep using my 132PX when I get one.
One day you will take a fork in the road, and you're going to have to make a decision about which direction you want to go. If you go one way, you can be somebody. You will have to make compromises and you will have to turn your back on your friends. But you will be a member of the club and you will get promoted and get good assignments. Or you can go the other way and you can do something [...] for yourself. If you decide to do something, you may not get promoted and get good assignments and you certainly will not be a favorite of your superiors. But you won't have to compromise yourself.
To be somebody or to do something. In life there is often a roll call. That's when you have to make a decision. To be or to do.
