This could be one of any number of flowers, anywhere in the world. That’s not the point in macro photography. The point is to look at things from a different point of view. When was the last time you looked a flower this closely? To see that the pollen is powder. To see the delicate almost translucency of the innermost petals. The texture of the stamens and pistils? I like this photo because the details are so compelling that there is something different to notice everytime I look at it. But it’s just a flower.

The nice thing about a camera that you can lose in most women’s purses is that you can carry it everywhere! Not only did I go snorkelling with it, I just went photo happy.
The zoom is really quite serviceable for a pocket camera. 5x zoom gets you just that bit closer.
However, I don’t JUST take photos of animals. Tried some photography in more of a dusk setting:
And then went really macro, but this colour was so technicolour that I’m not sure if the camera could handle it:
And also tried it out on landscapes. Colour rendering is good here in mixed light and the bright sunshine of the beach without being contrasty. (Does it sound like I know what I’m doing when I use words like “contrasty”?)
Lastly, one of the only “action” shots I took in Hawaii and it held up pretty decently:
So, in conclusion, the Sony DSC-TX30 is a very versatile camera for a wide range of shots. A lot of what I took is certainly suitable to frame and put on your wall, to gain some “oohs” and “aahs” as a computer wallpaper and to vividly bring your vacation back to life!
MMMMMM, something smells nice! I have this sugar body scrub that has all sorts of moisturizing oils in it. The base is brown sugar and the smells are of a lovely, sweet, fresh flower. It’s like you are walking in the meadow. I don’t know why I never noticed how beautiful a smell can be before.
What have you not been noticing?
