    I had the distinct pleasure of meeting up today with both Don "Streetshooter" Springer and Pete "Petach" Tachauer. Don and I are both from the Philly area, so seeing him was a treat but not all that rare a treat. Pete came all the way from England by way of New York City to spend the day with us, so that was a rare treat indeed. We did some shooting and a lot of hanging out in unseasonably hot Philly. Anyway, without further ado...

    Pete and Don:

    Pete tried to hold it, but with all of that water around, what's a guy to do??? (he's actually taking a closer photo of the same fountain, but too good an opportunity to pass up)

    Ray... great day for you guys.

    I like 100 and 165 of yours the most. Were you shooting Fuji, Nikon A, or... for these?

    Mostly with the Nikon A, a little bit with the RX1. All of these except the close up of Pete are from the Nikon. For this kind of urban shooting in good light, it would pretty much always be my choice.

    It was an interesting day and good conversations. I really enjoy watching other shooters and seeing what they plug their eyes into.......

    Ok you guys did a great job and all, but you forgot a step. Someone is supposed to follow you around recording video, so we can hear what you're talking about too. I wanna hear the little discussions about what you're shooting, and how, and why.

    The camera talk lasted about a half hour - Don loves the Nex 6, sold the GR, and was trying to come to terms with the XE1 he was using yesterday; Pete loves the X100s, has the tank like Canon 6D too; I was raving about the Nikon A and RX1 - nothing you haven't heard before. Then it was straight on to various middle aged maladies and marriages and Philly cuisine. No video necessary!

    As one of the Wilson, Kepple and Betty act (See the sand dance on U Tube) or the 3 stooges....whichever.....my apologies for being late to report.

    Ray/Don, this is the first you heard of it.....but I was taken unwell yesterday. Although the blister on my foot was painful and made walking difficult, I was quite happy to grit my teeth and bear it.

    However, I ended up suffering from a sun stroke/heat exhaustion`combo. The slowness of my gait towards the end of our day was purely heat exhaustion and my brains were boiling. PD sufferers must always avoid excessive heat...which I failed to do.

    Don and I had talked ourselves into a lather about Guinness and were determined to have one. I recall downing the first one and feeling (within a couple of seconds) as though I had been floored by Ali. I actually started hallucinating and believed that Don was after my X100S (well why wouldn't he?) The 2nd Guinness was like a right handed Foreman hay maker. I knew something was wrong but couldn't figure what! I was very jittery and needed to leave the bar that minute to survive. Don, I have no recall of getting to the station, I have no recall of getting on the train (but I found a $20 excess payment receipt in my bag)

    I recall waking up a number of times on the train in what i can only describe as an open swiss army knife position, I recall getting off the train and going to wrong end of platform to exit.

    I recall semi-collapsing in the street outside Penn Station, and recall staying there for a long while. I took some photos which I have no memory of. I got back to my hotel quite late. There was a message on my cell phone this morning from my bank asking if it was I that tried to obtain thousands of dollars from my account via the WElls Fargo atm at Penn (in separate transactions)

    I have slept on and off for most if the day If I can find any photos from the day I will post them.

    I am actually laughing now, but it was a rum ole day for sure.

    Cheers guys, I enjoyed the bits I recall,
