Calne (Friday 17th September 2021)
I recently found that the GPS unit that Ricoh Pentax make to fit onto the hotshoe of Pentax cameras has been discontinued. Since 2012, when I had to replace one, I have been relying on it to add location data and satellite-controlled date and time to all my images, swapping it from camera to camera as needed.
Most dealers had inflated the price and had also run out of stock, and I realised I needed to find one while they were still to be found, just in case.
Luckily there was one left from a Japanese retailer at a slightly less increased price and it arrived this week. I attached it to my yellow Pentax K50 and took it for my walk around town to confirm it was fully functioning. This was taken from the churchyard.

Lozarhythm Of The Day:
Bob Dylan - New Danville Girl (Empire Burlesque Outtake) (recorded 6 December 1984)
The latest in Bob Dylan's official 'Bootleg Series', Springtime In New York, covering the years 1980-1985, was released today, and my condensed 2CD version was delivered this afternoon. I haven't had a chance to play it yet but from reading the notes I have chosen this track, which I'm listening to from You Tube now.
New Danville Girl is an early version of the song that became Brownsville Girl on the album Knocked Out Loaded. The second voice you can hear is Clydie King and there are various members of Tom Petty's Heartbreakers among the session players.
