In this first Episode of ‘Coffee with Jefferson Davis’, I discuss the Minolta SR-7, Yashica MG-1, Zeiss Ikon Contessa, and different black and white films. I talked about the cost of film and different options available to us currently. My favorite is Kentmere 100 and 400. They are just as good as Ilford’s FP4 and HP5, but that is just my opinion. I hope to see Kodak or someone in the states come out with a competitive film. Arista Edu Ultra films are merely rebranded Fomapan films. They do work, and I have got some great results from them, yet they are prone to curling and scratches. The base on the Arista Edu films is very thin and easily scratched. I will have a review of the Contessa up by the end of next week.

Intro to Episode 1 of ‘Coffee with Jefferson Davis’ #podcast. In the intro, I discuss what I’ll be covering from the presidential campaigns, #kennedy24, to #film #photography and #cameras. The first episode will be available on Wed., the 30th.
Unfortunately, we were unable to record the podcast this weekend. Dr. Don had company, so he was unable to join us. We’ll be back, however, next week with a brand new episode full of high jinx and laughter. While you’re waiting on the next Episode of Kilos of Craic, have a listen to last weeks show. Thanks again for subscribing, listening, and watching the show! 🙂
Many of you may come to this blog from a Google search or social media link. If you read this in early to mid 2017, you may think that I’ve not been doing this long. You would be wrong in that assumption, but I can’t blame you for thinking that. Though this is technically a new blog on a new server, I’ve been blogging since 2005. Several friends and I did a fairly popular podcast from 2005 to 2011.
We stopped the podcast due to being burned out, I think. I don’t recall exactly why we ended it, but that seems to have been the reason. I ended the blog in 2013. At the time, I was working in the security field and couldn’t write about what I was doing. I still can’t, but I can write about what I’m doing now.
I, like so many other people, needed a voice again. The years of keeping my mouth shut and my head down had taken their toll. So, I decided to reactivate this url that had been sitting dormant for a couple of years.
The subjects of my posts may be a bit random, but they are based around politics, tech reviews, photography gear, photography, writing, and general observations from a unique American perspective. I also write about Ireland (long story) and am still working on a book of short stories about my travels through Ireland. I have published four travel photo books about Hibernia.
You may ponder, politics and tech reviews? They don’t generally go together, but my background is varied. I grew up in a business and majored in IT security before moving over to Criminal Justice. I am best known for my photography. Everyone needs a creative outlet, photography is mine. Though, I do dabble in writing fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. I am all over the place. It is due to growing up in a business and having to be multifaceted.
Now you know a tiny bit of the back story of this blog. Thank you for visiting the blog. Take a seat and enjoy the randomness. 🙂
