well well well; what do we have here?

i love my old sony digital camera, a wonderful surprise gift from my parents a few years back. she's done well by me and i'd no cause for complaint - except for her weight. i am not normally one to judge about such things - bodies come in many different sizes and shapes, and each can be beautiful. but if i'm lugging her around with me everywhere? if i have to literally carry her? honestly, she was starting to strain my neck, which is not very strong as it is.


enter the beautiful canon powershot sd780 is. smaller than my ipod and blackberry, and just as slim, she's quite the tiny thing. and oh can she shoot:


that was taken in extremely low light and is not retouched one bit. cole still blends a little into the litter box but - no grainy noise, beautiful white balance. i can't wait to take her to europe with me. i think i'm in love.

also? new knitting.


more to come on this front shortly!

(hey there - if you have a few bucks to spare, would you consider donating to mindy's AIDS walk efforts? as much as i'm sitting here trying to write something important, provocative, and moving, well. just go and read mindy's post. it's really more moving than anything i could ever say on the matter.)

Ohhhhh. That is a nice camera. I have a hankering for a new camera myself so I love to hear what people are using.

I love your new project! There is a Rowan feel to the picture.

Thank you so much- for linking and your donation. Hugs back!

Hmmm, I can see what my little beat up Canon sd1100 is going to grow up into when its goat-proof warranty expires...

pretty blue on the shrug.

I have a Nikon SLR professional camera, and while I love it.. there are days I would kill for a nice little point and shoot like that.
My SIL is a professional photographer and she has a canon powershot just for that reason. She can slip it in her pocket when she takes the kids to the park, etc.

Love the poncho shrug - please give more details as that looks perfect for what I need.
