I went to Asakusa Sensoji Temple not on 1/1 to 1/3 but on January 8 to pay my New Year’s visit. It has been a long time since I visited Sensoji Temple in new year. There were many people and the Nakamise-dori was crowded, and I felt the whole Asakusa area was lively. I bought takoyaki (octopus dumplings), grilled sweetfish, etc., and enjoyed walking them with eating.
I was so busy with work at the end of the year that I was not able to wrap up 2022 properly. The main topic of 2022 was the re-starting of my blogging activities, which had been stagnant. I made a number of changes in conjunction with these changes. – Change of blog title – Start English articles – Change of design All of the changes were made in conjunction with these changes. In addition – Starting Buy me a coffee program We have also started a new campaign, “Buy me a Coffee”. This is one of the donation services, and we would be happy if you could support our blog. We hope to continue to write articles that will leave a little something for everyone who reads them.
As we started to post more articles, the number of accesses, which had been at rock bottom, started to increase little by little (although the number of accesses is still low). Thankfully, the number of opportunities to receive “likes” has increased tremendously. Thank you very much.
I still want an FUJIFILM XQ3 even though I know it won’t be released. Some of the older compact film cameras are now priced at a premium and are not even a little expensive. (like a CONTAX T3) With digital cameras, it is hard to get a premium price for a vintage camera (not that I want a premium price for my camera). In the end, the old digital cameras is older sensors and digital circuits, that why the pictures that come out of them are not good enough (in terms of resolution, color, etc.).
I have been using the XQ1 from time to time recently, and I have to say that it is just as nice photo as ever. There are some things I would like to say, such as the lack of a viewfinder or the fact that once you turn off the camera, you forget to zoom and always start from the wide-angle side, but the palm-size is hard to give up, and the fact that FUJIFILM colors are available even in this size is the biggest thing.
