I do not generally think of this blog as a journal. It is more a place to share adventures, tips, insights, experiences, and encouragement for fellow photographers as they journey the same steep slopes of improving their photography. Therefore, I hope my recent long absence has not been a disappointment to anyone.
Perhaps I should have mentioned this earlier, but the tripod I broke last month was still under warranty, so Manfrotto Repair kindly fixed it for me. It was great
service . . . once I called them to hurry up a bit. After not hearing from them for
two weeks, I called them up last Monday and told them I needed the tripod by Friday. They said “No problem” and told me it would arrive by Thursday. Well, it arrived on Wednesday. And it’s just like new. There is much to be grateful for.
