Autumnal Scootering

Scootering to Sweet Cup
The only photo I could find of my Honda PCX-150, from several years ago.

I also brought with me the old Panasonic Lumix G5 camera with the lovely 20mm-F/1.7 lens. The camera recently had an issue whereby the mechanical shutter decided to malfunction, and I don't want to pay to get this old camera repaired. Luckily the camera also has an electronic shutter mode, where it reads off the sensor directly, line-by-line, leaving the mechanical shutter in its normal open mode (since it's a mirrorless camera, they normally keep the mechanical shutter open when composing scenes, in contrast to a DSLR that keeps the shutter closed until the time of capture). Here's a quick grab shot I made while seated at the counter at Duran's, a detail of their menu.

Returning home I stopped in to gas up the scooter. It's been close to a year since I last did so! I recorded 112 MPG on that old tank of gas! Not bad for hauling my fat butt around town. As you can surmise, I don't ride the scooter as often as I should, but now with autumn here it's high time to get in some miles before the cold of winter.
