There is fungus among us.

Mamiya RZ 110_2.8

My newly-acquired Mamiya-Sekor Z 110mm f/2.8, which was used to take these recently posted images here, here, and here, has fungus in it.

A lot of fungus.

It was described as “mint” by the seller in Japan.

To his credit, he has sent me a replacement lens.  It’s not quite as nice cosmetically, but the glass is clean (other than dust, which all of these Mamiya RZ lenses seem to attract in great quantity).

Yet, I wonder if I should keep and pay for the eukaryotic-exotic first lens?

It seems to perform spectacularly.

Myco-graphy anyone?

And I’m not talking about our dog, Honey.

The Chip Maneuver.

In between innings.

Notice the hand-eye coordination.

Mr. Baseball.

The local hero.

Go Blue Jays, Go!

As I post this, they’ve won their 10th game in a row and are in first place in their division.

The last time Toronto was this excited about baseball was in 1992 and 1993, when the Jays won back-to-back World Series titles.


Go Blue Jays, Go!

Happy 10th Birthday, C!

May your life bring you many more smiles. Happy 10th Birthday, C!
