My new camera was waiting for me in the mailbox Saturday evening. Pretty great since I only (finally) ordered it on Thursday night! Woo hoo!

Anyway, in lieu of wordier content, here are some pictures I took today. I'm still figuring out how it works since it's a completely different brand than I'm used to. I got the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5, and am very pleased so far. I haven't even begun to explore all the options, but that didn't stop me from pushing a lot of buttons.

As I was saying -- here's some color:

ribbons at ikea.

coneflower vortex
coneflower in the garden. I love that these are purple and orange together. Together! You hear me, people who say they "don't match"?? Mother Nature says otherwise, and I agree! The orange parts look like little tiny missiles. Missiles aimed at orange/purple naysayers...

wrapping paper at ikea. If I had noticed that bit of ceiling while I was taking it, I would have tried to reframe it without. But even so -- yay paper! It looks sort of willy wonka to me. I wonder if Ikea has considered Oompa Loompa concierge allen wrench service? They should think about it.

back to the garden. This isn't exactly focused, but I think it very pretty anyway. It's like I took it with the Elizabeth Taylor Violet Eyes Vaseline Filter, which I believe is one of the preset modes on my camera!
