Back in the States as well as my home state, finally!

White Stallion Ranch

Click the picture above to enter into the Flickr album. Much appreciated!

There’s been a lot going on! It’s been trip after trip with jet-lag in between. I’ve gotten a whole lot of editing finished already and posted on Flickr which is available for viewing. I would suggest starting with the White Stallion Ranch album as it is the best curated / finished work. I am still adding to and editing photos in the Australia album. Nonetheless, you will not have much difficulty finding a ton of great Australia pics. I intend to be posting on this blog much more regularly but that requires the time. I might just have to schedule my posts to push me to make the posts.

Anyhow, aside from photography I’m currently searching the Greenville area for an apartment or condo. I’ve really only begun to jump into this search this week but have already gathered a ton of information and found what I believe might make a great place to live.

Cheers,

James

“Has anyone seen a red Nikon Coolpix camera?”

My dearest fraternity brother, J-Babe (twitter: @jasonaul) has been searching for over a decade.

not really sure if this is the precise model so use some imagination

Perhaps his detective skills would have had some actual results if he were able to pronounce Nikon correctly to the inebriated guests attending the festivities at the French embassy in 2008? Here is a refresher . . . Air Nippon Airways, Nissan, and Nikon are all derived from “Nippon” which is one way to read the 日本, which means Japan. 

 

  • That’s right! Nihon , where adding the suffix -go (Nihongo) means Japanese ( the language). Did someone just mention Nihongo Gamer? Yes! I did.

 

  • Here is the correct pronciation of the world’s oldest camera company still in operation today.

Key takeaway - - - Respect the “Nikon” by pronouncing it correctly. (Or don’t)
