Finally getting back to normal

by brae  

I rested last weekend after my trip to Vancouver only to find myself with a summer cold.  :[  I spent most of the week sneezing, hacking up a lung and generally miserable.  :[

I am finally feeling mostly better, dealing now with a slight cold medication withdrawal headache.  :\

During my trip to Vancouver, my trusty Canon PowerShot G9 finished its swift decline.  It has been losing its marbles awhile now, but when it caused me to miss a few really great shots that can't easily be revisited, I decided it was time for retirement.

In its place, I now have a Canon PowerShot G15.  It's smaller than the G9, which is good for tight dollhouse interior shots, but it has just about the same layout and functions as the G9, so there's only a slight learning curve.

I took a string of random shots to test out the macro capabilities since that's my usual purpose.  These have been edited for size, but the original unaltered shots were wonderful as is.

It picked up the slightest detail and texture as well as an excellent range of color.

I'm hoping to get back into the swing of minis this week.  :]

Hi Brae! I'm so sorry to read that you were so sick with a cold. Is there anything worse than a hacking cough? I hope you will soon be feeling better! Your camera takes lovely photos!

My husband had that cold last week, too. I think I'm coming down with it now. Ugh. I'm glad you're feeling better.

Sad to hear your camera died on you. Your choice for a new one made me smile; i have the one that's in between your old and new, a G12. Perfect size and features to get into the tight corners of miniature scenes. I bet this #15 is even more advanced. Enjoy getting to know it and get well soon :)
