I had a nice visit with myself today!

PORTSMOUTH, NH— The sacrifice and heroism of generations of Port City firefighters came to the forefront Thursday night as hundreds turned out for the formal dedication of the newest addition of city-owned public art called "Vigilance."

"It makes us think about the tireless commitment of our firefighters," said Mayor Tom Ferrini . "For them it never stops, it never ends. It's not a question of if, but when and they always have to answer the call."

Not a Point & Shoot. Not an SLR ... It’s a PEN

Two Olympus Pen Cameras in one house hold. 
The one on the left is my new baby, the 2009 E-P1 digitial
and the one on the right is my son's 1961 Pen EE film camera.
My son is a big camera buff and loves the old cameras.

We are definitely mother and son!
