Pretty Good Hat

I got an adapter and I’m excited to use my old Pentax lenses on my Fujifilm X-T30. (This is with the SMC FA 35mm)

A silver and black camera sits on a bright, narrow countertop, lens pointing away. The light is bright, making the shadow very stark and deep behind the camera.

I found that the battery on my Fuji X-T30 no longer holds a charge, so I’m making photos this Thanksgiving with my X100S while I order a replacement battery. Gosh this camera feels so good to hold and use. It’s just so elegant and solid and graceful. I should carry it everywhere.

My early morning routine this holiday week has been journaling and coffee by the fireplace. It’s a small, electric fire that doesn’t put out a lot of heat, but it warms my toes a bit when it’s cold.

I’ve ordered myself a holiday vacation treat: I’m going to build myself an Iris. It’s my first try at a split keyboard, and I’m looking forward to both the build and the experiment of using it!

My friend Cam Scott is a gifted, tremendously hardworking flyfisher and poet. I’ve been on a few oh-my-god adventures with him on mountains and in canyons. I’m thrilled and moved by the featuring of his poem A River’s Own Name by Patagonia, where his reading is set to a beautiful video. Hell yeah, Cam!

Somewhere along the way I ended up with two versions of my tag for R-related posts (#r and #R), and Hugo didn’t handle the lowercase one. A couple of quick sed lines did the trick to convert both to a more friendly version that Hugo handles just fine. I’m saving them here for future reference in case I ever want to bulk-change a Hugo tag again:

  • sed -i 's/^ \- r$/ \- rstats/' *.md
  • sed -i 's/^ \- R$/ \- rstats/' *.md
