I bought a new compact camera. I hope I like this one better than my last one, which, after only 1 1/2 years decided to act up. The light meter caused my photos to be over-exposed. So I am experimenting, trying out different settings. So far I am pleased. It is easier to set in manual (an issue I had with my  (not so) old camera.

The Word at Night

Here is another night shot - not bad for no flash and from across the street with a zoom. The new camera is a Sony. The plusses include a viewfinder, small size, easier controls. I was also able to purchase a battery charger so I don't always have to charge the battery while it is in the camera. Now that I am taking a photo a day, I like having a camera with me (not just my phone). Although I get decent photos with my phone, there are times I get frustrated with the limited control as well as the lack of a viewfinder in bright light. This photo a day challenge can be expensive!


  1. great expenditure - pics look good.

  2. Great purchase. I've used Sony cameras (both DSLR and Cybershot) over the years and I've been pleased. You're getting great crispness in these night shots.
