pics : then & now
Hi Everyone -
First, I was listening to NPR just about all day yesterday, including the BBC broadcast, and it was terrific to hear the positivity from around the world about President-Elect Obama and our democratic-process! People were inspired by his election and felt they could achieve anything even in their own countries. In addition to all of the goodwill and the potential for positive change, I'm looking forward to seeing his adorable children in the White House with their new puppy in tow ;). We have to be careful not to expect Obama to walk on water, though. He has an enormous task at hand and continued patience and support will be essential from everyone.
Now, on to business ;). After a few years of using my trusty Canon PowerShot S400 (4 megapixel point & shoot), I purchased a Nikon D60 about a month ago. It's pretty neat, but I haven't gone beyond using the automatic settings, yet. One of my projects is to photograph our collections. I wanted to do some of them over again with the new camera and was amazed at the difference. Now, I'm not saying I won't be calling 'do over' again, but these photos were taken in the same location at the same time of day. The top shot is with the DSLR and the second one with the point & shoot.
I'm working on something else with these photos and will have more details next week.
