Picture Monday!

This is going to seem like a motley array of pictures today, but there is a theme...I finally made the leap and got a point-and-shoot camera. All of my friends thought it was really funny that I was the only one who did not have a "regular" camera and I had been wanting one for everyday sort of things. So, here is a taste of what it can do and I will have a review of it on Wednesday.
This is exactly the sort of thing that I wanted a carry camera for. Sometimes things like this show up and how can you not take a picture? But carrying around 30 pounds of camera gear is not so conveinient, low-key, or good for the back. I have had the most fun with the digital macro mode...
My most photogenic pet. I was having some fun with lens flare and the wide angle lens...
Check back on Wednesday for the details!

WOW! How did you get a picture of that cat! I chased her for 20 min and got many a blurry picture. FYI... I love my Sony Cybershot that I happened upon when my not so great Nikon couldn't handle my rough lifestyle.

sal, my cat happens to be incredibly photogenic and loves to be the center of attention! If your camera has the setting I would recommend shooting in shutter priority mode or raising your ISO to get a faster shutter speed. Also, for every one good picture of her I get there are probably a dozen no good ones so keep trying! Thanks for the comment!
