Photos from my Small Camera #1
I just cast-off a top-secret knitting project, which I can’t as yet show you. So, I thought I’d share some photos I’ve taken with the small Canon ELPH camera that I keep in my purse. I bought it with some birthday money last fall, when I realized that out-and-about I often wanted to take a snapshot but hadn’t brought my super-duper DSLR camer with me.
Outside the parking garage at work, crows come to roost in the trees after dark from autumn through spring. This is early in the roosting, as only the top branches are taken. During these months, it is best to park in the garage and not in the lots with trees in them.
We ate one night at a Moroccan restaurant, where in addition to eating with our fingers, we watched this woman belly-dance, shimmying with a brass bowl balanced on her head. Her posture and balance were amazing.
M bought me a lovely white moth orchid, which I keep by my desk at work. He did this well after Valentine’s Day in place of flowers on that holiday, when the prices shoot up and the quality goes down.
This is our 7-foot tall ficus tree, which had just been returned outdoors from a winter indoors (which it hates–it sheds half its leaves inside). We got a winter storm that blew it over. The pot is cracked, so now we have to replant it. That will be a project.
I enjoy having the little camera with me to catch things on the fly, and I hope to share more of these in the future. M uses it too sometimes, and you may thank me that I did not show you any of his mouse dissection photos from the lab. Quite gruesome. Magnolias and orchids are much better!
