Mike, my wife's parents were shrimpers. The house (camp) that she grew up in, was about 8 feet off the ground on the lake. Katrina destroyed it. There was nothing left but a few boards. My family owns a business in Slidell about 5 miles from the lake and we had about 6 feet of water inside not to mention wind damage. My wife and I had sold our 1st house 1 month before Katrina and we were staying at my parents where we got 2 trees in the roof. It took us 6months to get our business open. The worst part was no power for weeks.

It's not a purse, it's called a satchel. Indiana Jones wears one.

Oh wow that is some scary stuff Harry. What are you doing for this storm? Also how did you the house you sold hold up?

I have been looking into the Pentax K30 and Sony A57 but just can't see myself using a DSLR anymore. I love the size of the mirrorless cameras. I really want the stabilization and weather sealing. Now they are talking about a FF Nex maybe next year. I will have to get one of those when I hit the lottery. I did place an order for another mirrorless. I ordered the Olympus OM-D with the 12-50 kit lens and I added the Olympus 45 f1.8. There was a $150 rebate on the 45 which is regularly $399. I think the Nex and Oly will have their purpose.

This was taken with my nex-5 with the standard lens the camera came with.
