A SATISFYING 15 MINUTES

After yesterday's excursion with my P&S, I decided that I'll have to carry my good camera around all the time. Since we had a staff meeting today (which always includes lunch) I only got one opportunity to go to the park. I came away with three photos that pleased me pretty well.

First, a frog on a lily pad. I was able to zoom way in on him and capture some good detail and texture, as well as pretty rich color in this guy.

This is a different frog who was just a couple of feet away from the first one. This is a close-up cropped from a larger photo.

I was also quite pleased with this water lily. I think the shadow in the water adds something special to an otherwise fairly ordinary shot.

As you can see, this 15 minute break was the highlight of an otherwise ordinary day at work. TGFB! (Thank God For Breaks!)

Hey, I don't mind the occasional lunch meeting, especially when there's FREE FOOD!

My current "serious" camera is a Panasonic Lumix FZ20 superzoom digital. It's a pretty good all-in-one camera. It has one zoom lens that purportedly ranges from 36mm - 432mm. I don't think that claim is entirely accurate, but it's still a pretty good zoom lens.

Dave recently got a Canon Rebel XT digital SLR. Now I'm lusting for one of those! The differences between his lenses and mine are staggering! And the quality of DSLR photos is far better than superzooms. I guess I'll have to start saving my pennies again.
