Janusz Korczak, the pen name of Henryk Goldszmit[1] (22 July 1878 or 1879 – August 1942), was a Polish-Jewish educator, children’s author, and pediatrician known as Pan Doktor (“Mr. Doctor”)  After spending many years working as director of an orphanage in Warsaw, he refused freedom and stayed with his orphans when the institution was sent from the Ghetto to the Treblinka extermination camp, during the Grossaktion Warsaw of 1942.

My New Camera

I am now back to a normal routine, and therefore this is my first post in a while. I have upgraded my Nikon D70s to the new D7000. It is quite an upgrade for me. It’s sort of like day and night in terms of improvements. Right off the bat -I can now use other Nikon lenses that I own that work with the camera’s exposure meter. Something I could not do with the D70s. In addition to many other improvements, I can now shoot video – and great video at that.
My wife and I have recently returned form a trip to the Mediterranean and I hope to post some pictures I took in Greece, Turkey, Italy and Israel.
Regards,
Ron
