I’m in a zone, where I should be prudently approaching retirement, but am I driven to create something lasting, after wasting my life working for a living. “Wasting” is not the proper word, as during those decades I gained experiences, that as a child, I could not have dreamed about.

My New (broken) Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV and Trusty Old Canon S110 When it comes to small “point & shoot” cameras, I’ve been in the Canon Camp of a number of years, having purchased an S90, S100 and S110 over the last six years.
