I got a new camera!

And oh, boy. Am I ever excited!

I loved my last Canon Powershot which died a very sad and untimely death. After quite a bit of research I decided on the latest Powershot, the Canon PowerShot SX10 IS. So far I love it. I have a Pentax Optio A40 that is perfect for carrying in my purse. It’s tiny and takes great photos – as long as no one is moving. I needed more.

This new camera is not a pocket camera, but it is not as large as an SLR. It has a built in 20x optical zoom, which is great for framing those further away shots. It has a very large screen, and a timer. Those are the features I use most, but it is also fully manual and fully automatic with everything in between. It has a wonderful, big zoom lens, a rotating LCD, manual controls, and a nice movie mode which is very important to me.

I am excited about getting the chance to really try it out!

A Sunday Morning Sketch

Just the thing to do while listening to the pastor. It may sound odd to some but I just can’t concentrate unless my hands are busy. Give me a pencil and a piece of paper and my ears are yours. Dunno why that is but there ya go.

These are some quick Sunday morning sketches. One is a member of our congregation and I was interested in capturing his chin. It just caught my eye and wondered if I could get it on paper. I must say the likeness is pretty good.

The second was just a quick little drawing of no one. Do you ever do those?
