Shiny brand new year
I took those first two pictures with my old Canon PowerShot that got me hooked on the PowerShot line. It's one of the "A" series, and I've learned that they come in three different versions: A, Elph, and SX. My stolen camera was an SX with a 10X optical zoom. Yesterday I went to Best Buy and was excited to see a camera on sale that would give me a 12X optical zoom and 14.1 mexapixels in each picture for about the same price. My old one was 9MP, so for the same price I've now got a camera that will give me a bit more quality... and zoom-ability for the birds. I just went out on the front porch in very low light and took this picture of a downy woodpecker munching away on the suet feeder.
Once I am assured that my Social Security direct deposit has been successfully transferred to my new checking account, I'll be thinking about replacing that iPad. So things are looking up and getting back to normal. I hope the same is happening in your own bright shiny new year!
