    Nah. I already have photos of a Rolls Royce. Four in fact.





    I took these photos in Broken Hill during our visit to our daughter (& new grandson) back in 2012 at Pro Hart's Gallery. No ghostly images since they weren't going anywhere, but just one Silver Ghost.

    Thanks Harold. There's a photographer on the Blue Mountains that frequently shows his blurry photos (not that I like them), so I couldn't waste the last one either.

    Thanks John. Yes, at least I got some, but I wish I could have put my brain into gear & could have got more.

    Unfortunately the operator of my camera has the same intermittent fault as yours. Completely lost me the shot of a Viking screaming in my face on Saturday
    Thanks.

    I wouldn't disable the function, even though I have my AF+MF set in Menu. I still want that full MF function but if I miss more like that, then maybe I might rethink.

    I call them 'senior moments', like I had intended to go & visit Spec-Savers for a check up, but somehow I looked up OPSM & they happened to be in Katoomba too. It wasn't till my wife asked why I went there did I realise that I really did have a 'senior moment'.

    started a topic Yesteryear's Wheels.

    Yesteryear's Wheels.

    After my first steam train photos for the day (four more train trips followed that day) I came back through town (Springwood) & noticed this vintage car parked & thankfully there was a spot opposite that I could slip into with my car. I quickly grabbed my camera that had the 40-150 Pro lens on & started taking photos as I could see he was getting ready to drive off.

    E-M1 II & 40-150 f2.8 Pro lens.

    I thanked him & he replied that he was coming back (back up the street from turning around at the roundabout), but I was a bit slow to what he meant & got back into my car ready to move off when I realised he was passing me, so I followed (slowly) until he waived me on & so I raced ahead up the highway to Faulconbridge shops, parked & swapped lenses to the 12-40 so I could get closer, wider shots as he passed, with this result.

    STUPID FOCUS RING. OK, it's the STUPID operator's fault. They did wave though.

    Thanks for looking.
