Almost looks like a bloody composite, but is a SOOC jpg. Cropping too tight is a result of lack of lcd brightness.

I noticed daylight duration is shortening quickly again, we hardly had a real summer this year, and the season is withering away...

Also still fooling around with the HC monochrome mode. Don't worry, I don't drink the stuff...

Three more from my evening walk.

No more.

I promise.

Why "no more"? They are very enjoyable!

Mrs. Cardinal (I think: IR-sensitive camera + uncoated lens = gender uncertainty).

For some reason I'm not really aware, myself, I keep coming back to this one from a recent not very productive weekend.

Very cool. Did you see "Spartacus was here" etched into the walls anywhere?  ;)

This is in Romania, there are still multiple salt mines open to public.

That's pretty prevalent today and has little to do with lenses, but more with chance, compass and perspective. Deep inside me, I suspect that Central Casting has a hand in it somewhere too.

I caught a news clip today where they were making Fender's Stratocasters in Mexico! Trump that!

They should make them in Japan.

In the very early 1980's Fender started getting versions of all their famous models made in Japan under the 'Squier' name: I was working in a musical instrument shop at the time & I thought they they were better quality than the American versions. They were also cheaper. I had a Squier Telecaster: lovely guitar.

Unfortunately I'm a bloody awful guitarist.

They were also cheaper. I had a Squier Telecaster: lovely guitar.

My general experience with early/mid '80s Japanese electric guitars is that they knock the socks off most US-made stuff of the same vintage. The nicest Strat I've ever owned, or played for that matter, is a first-year (1982) Fender Japan "62 reissue" model. White, now faded to a light parchment, with a mint green pickguard. Sold my "real" Strat after getting it. Playing it is like wearing a soft & comfy form-fitting shirt. I have a black '83 Squier Tele too. It's a different flavor of Tele than my namesake one but just as well made and capable.

Fender's factory in Ensenada does very good work too. Fender hampers overall quality by using cheaper hardware and electronics on their Mexican-made models (which is to say, they're mostly but not entirely made in Mexico) but the Mexican work holds its own.

Yep, some of 'em anyway. Fender has had a factory in Ensenada for some years now. Back in the day Leo Fender insisted on hiring Latinas to wind guitar pickups and wire up guitars & amps. He found they tended to have the right combination of skill and patience necessary to do the job to his demanding standards. In Fender collectors' circles these ladies are well regarded and folks know some of their names. My old Telecaster was wired by Gloria Fuentes, and the pickups in some other Fenders I own or once owned were wound by Abigail Ybarra. (I met Abby ~10 years ago at a guitar show. She's still living.) Both often signed their work.
