The old camera was dying a slow death, so we upgraded to a new one. Nothing fancy, but still better than what we had (and about half the price and half the size of the old one). I am now shooting with a wee Canon PowerShot Elph 100HS. I haven't dropped it...yet.
I decided to practice with it on some of my most treasured things--pretty beaded bags and jewelry passed down to me from my grandma.
I wore this locket as a child--and still do!
The macro on this definitely works. I didn't even see the "ALLCO" mark (indicating this was made by A.L. Lindroth) on the inside of the locket until I saw this photo.
I love this pin, and will have to remember to wear it on St. Patrick's Day. I remember being told as a child that I should wear red on St. Patrick's Day because I was German. I have no idea why, though!
I also took it out with me on our Valentine date this weekend, testing the low light setting (not a setting I'll likely use often). Andy I played some pinball at The Pyramid Scheme--that's the floor, there.
...and we had cocktails at the Viceroy (you can see Steven, bartender extraordinaire, in the background). Andy looks so cute and mod in his necktie!
