A week ago Monday, we had a very strong storm come through the area. Strong enough to spawn several tornadoes from Charlotte to the southwestern Virginia area, a distance of more than a hundred miles. I spent part of the afternoon looking out the windows at work and wishing that I had my camera with me to take pictures of the wonderful (and somewhat scary) cloud formations. But my camera is fairly large (it is a super-zoom bridge camera) and doesn’t fit in my purse.
So, I decided to order a small point-and-shoot camera to carry in my purse in order to take pictures during conditions just like the one that happened last week. I bought a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8, a wide-angle lens camera that is smaller than a deck of cards.
So going forward, I’ll post pictures from both cameras. The big camera will go with me on the weekends and I’ll take the little camera on lunchtime expeditions.
First posting from the little camera of a dandelion seed head, also called a “clock”. Takes a nice picture, doesn’t it?
