New Camera – small pictorial adventures from MtLawleyShire

It does Macro, my new camera.  It’s another Canon Powershot, but it’s an sx160 – 16mp & 16 optical zoom.  I have started exploring.

Here is a bee – a terrible misadventure: it fell into a jug of iced water.  I recused it with a long-handled spoon and after these shots, it flew away, recovered.

And flowers!  Oh!  Here is a tiny star jasmine flower & a tiny chamomile daisy flower

and the tiny, delicate lemon-scented geranium flowers

it zooms beautifully (16 optical zoom): other type of jasmine:

Christmas ornaments

& very close – trying to play (unsuccessfully) with reflections:

tree flowers or – well – green pom-pom things (very spiky!)

& just flowers: a rose bud sheltered from the searing heat of the day & a daisy

& the singing honeyeaters in my garden – the zoom is far more powerful, giving wonderfully clear pics:

And I saw a face in the ivy cascading over my fence.  My own ‘green man’.

Finally – isn’t she beautiful 🙂

I think my new camera and I will get on OK together.

    The photos look great and good luck with the new camera… have you looked at my sun sets in the Kalahari, a semi desert area of South Africa… hot as hell and lovely… great pool to swim in every day… Happy New Year to you and may everything you hope for come to fruition…


  5. Wow, you can certainly get some close-up close ups with that new camera!


  6. Lovely! What adventures you’ll have together 🙂


    • 🙂 Yes! And hopefully, despite heaps of work & PhD-ing, I will get to post more too.
