It’s Good to Be Home, Sorta…

It’s good to be home. A week is a long time to be without Philz coffee.

Besides my welcome home cup of Mocha Tesora, I was able to install Fuji’s newest firmware for my X100. Version 1.10 fixes a lot of bugs, and adds a few enhancements as well. So far I’ve seen a definite improvement in the look of the Velvia and Astia film simulation modes. Provia seems to look better too, but I need to test it a little more.

Now for the big bummer of our return:

Our first order of business on arrival was to take Suki here. It looks like her allergies flared up while we were gone and she ended up with some pretty serious skin inflammation on her tummy.

After having her examined, picking up some medication, and paying a heinous vet bill, we took Suki home, looking ultra-hip in with her not-so-stylish cone of shame.

Unfortunately, Suki is pretty miserable right now. The inflammation is very painful and she’s under a great deal of stress. Really hate to see her like this, but I know she’ll recover soon.

Until then, it’s cone of shame for you, Suki! =P

  1. She looks so unhappy in her cone…Hopefully she feels better soon. My poor pup has allergies too and he gets baths with oatmeal and eucalyptus, it seems to help, maybe it could help miss Suki too.

  2. Welcome back! Sorry to hear about Suki; wishing her a speedy recovery.When I heard about the firmware update last Friday, I knew you’d be on top of that, haha. Looking forward to seeing more coverage of the improvements.

  3. Aw man, great set of shots when you got back. Looks like the sun was still shining here too! But that really sucks for Suki. You could tell she was down in some of the shots you took of her. Hope she gets better soon!

  4. yay for philz, but boo to inflammation! poor suki. make sure to tell her she’s rocking the cone in the cutest possible fashion. 🙂 hope she gets better soon.

  5. I just wanted to say your pictures are so amazing! Honestly, I have never seen pictures like yours…you have a real gift! They all look very natural and you are so professional. I appreciate how well you educate everyone with all of your details and lenses used. Thank you so much for taking the time to do that! Keep up the great work. Your work is very inspiring for those of us who love the hobby. 🙂 Wow! Wow! Wow!
