Looking forward, looking back

Well, it looks as though I have to buy a camera. The repair shop examined the one I broke and gave me the bad news: fixing my old camera will cost about as much as purchasing a new one.

I haven’t shopped for a camera in years, and I do have a rather small budget, so I think I’ll have to do a lot of research and investigation. Do you have any ideas about the current crop of cameras? Any and all suggestions and advice are welcome.

In the meantime, until I have another camera in my life, I’ll be posting older images that for one reason or another never appeared in this blog.

This photo was taken last summer. It shows a mural entitled “Red Hook Works,” which is painted on the side of a brick building on Van Brunt Street in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn.

    cette peinture murale est très belle, j’aime bien la statue de la liberté au fond.

    This mural is very beautiful, I like the Statue of Liberty in substance.

    You might take a look at Flickr – they’ve got a camera finder feature.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and your kind comments.
    The camera that I bought is an Olympus SP560UZ. It was relatively cheap because it has been superceded by the Olympus SP570UZ. I’m having great fun with it, although I haven’t read the CD-Rom and I’m probably only utilising a tiny fraction of its capabilities. I went for a Superzoom because I didn’t want the extra expense or the faff of changing lenses on a DSLR. I suspect that several other Superzooms on the market are equally as good as the Olympus.
    I hope that’s helpful.
