New Camera

Yesterday after the sale Ann asked me if I would go with her to choose a camera for her daughter, a good one (Ann hasn't a clue about camera) Jessops are closing down and we thought they may have some nice reduced prices.
We didn't get as far as Jessops, because the camera shop near the bus stop had a sale on too and we ended up buying two camera, A DSLR for Ann's daughter and a Bridge camera for me.
I fully intended to change my camera this year but not really so early in the year, but this camera was too good to let go. A Sony DSC-HX200V

and I am having such success with it.
It will go from 33x Zoom to macro without having to press buttons it focuses automatically but can be focused manually. The reds as well as every other colour seem spot on. (my fuji doesn't like reds at all always makes them pink)
Just a few examples of the photos I took today

We had a funeral in our church today, a member of our church family, Ted he was 89, he had lived a full life, he was a true example of a servant heart, he was well loved and will be missed but we know that he is in a far better place now. the church was full to overflowing well over 100 people there. A lovely service and the family gave such moving and happy words of him.

Billy's memorial which will be next Thursday after the sale, probably will not have any family present, he leaves a father and two sister behind. Somewhere in the past there was a wife, I'm not sure if there were/are any children. But he will have a whole host of friends from Thursdays that will give him a good send off. He is the one I shall miss most because he has gone before his time he was only 55.

On a much more cheerful note Hilary my friend for when we all lived in Cricklade, came and had lunch with me, we had a good old natter catching up with each other. A really nice afternoon.

No culling today I'm afraid, I just haven't really had the time. So I may have to do extra tomorrow

Today I am grateful for having known Ted
for Hilary's friendship which has spanned 34 years
for a new camera to enhance my photography skills

Glad that you like your new camera more Mary - I remember your disappointment with the old-new camera compared tou your point and shoot (which is like mine and pretty good as far as a P-a-S goes). Enjoy!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
