Interesting. When I worked with the image I thought, "the sweater is  
a bit 'out of date'." Didn't think "distracting." Probably will from  
now on. Thanks ;~) These types of 'portraits' really are more  
"personal, social documents" for me.

In fact - this is his store today. Each time I drop in he seems to  
have less photo gear and more in-line skates, paint ball guns, skate  
boards, gps, and other "adventure" gear.

Quite so. Shallow DoF. Also seems that my 75 lux has changing focus  
problems on the M8 - more on that later. I'm puzzled and testing.  
Sometimes it seems to test dead on, and other times with back focus  
issues. Is this possible? Drifting?

Right. Couldn't lose that famous book. :~)

Makes us shiver too. -30 with wind chill last night. Bur-r-r-r
