こんばんは！How are you doing? I’m well, although I have developed a cold sore on my lip. It’s been several years since I’ve had one, so it was a surprise this morning!
Today’s photo is of a nice shiny blue “Blue Metal Soft Release” that I purchased for my X100T. I have a convex black soft shutter release, but I thought this blue one might look nice on my black camera and since it was only about $5 I figured I would give it a try. The quality and the color of the button is nice, but it is a little too small for the X100T… and also I think the black button I have on it now looks better. So I put the blue button on my wife’s XT-10, and I think it looks great! It also matches the size of the XT-10’s release mechanism almost perfectly! Happily, my wife also likes it and so I have put a little loctite on it to secure the button onto the threads.
By the way, in an earlier post, I explained that I was going to start using a “Personal Documentary” category to designate my posts with the daily photos. But it turns out that I am also posting daily (or nightly) and including the photo, so I am not sure the separate category is needed. Therefore, I have removed the “Personal Documentary” category. I have been including my daily posts in the “Slice of Life” category in case you are keeping score.
Lastly, I wanted to mention that this has been a tough week in which both David Bowie and Alan Rickman have died. I’ve been a Bowie fan since high school (I remember listening to Changesonebowie in my room with a bunch of friends one night), and I saw him in 1983 during his Serious Moonlight tour. What an amazing show. And I’ve admired Alan Rickman’s acting, specifically his portrayal of Severus Snape. He really stole the show in the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2, didn’t he?
On that note, I will end this post. I hope you have a great Friday!
