Recently through a friend's incredible generosity, I became the proud owner of a new Canon PowerShot A590. Until today all I have done was set it up and read part of the manual but hadn't taken any photos. I was waiting for something special to photograph.
Today I realized that and started taking pictures.
Here is one that is special in one way. It features the photographs of our photographer friend:
Once again you see the shelf in our family room in post-Holiday mode (finally got everything put away!). The photographs are indistinct but you should be able to recognize the eclipse on the left. That one is Night. On the right is Day which is hard to make out. It's a stunning photo of a bee zooming in on a flower. While I knew they were on the shelf, I was more concerned with how the camera would deal with the light. It passed.
The last picture from today's experiment is this shot of the shelf in the living room (shelves as a theme?):
In this photo I wanted to see how the camera would capture this scene - tiny wood carvings and E's special holiday card with her painting of the village in Germany from which her parents emigrated. I'd say the camera passed again.
Now if I could only do something about the photographer!
