The photos were all taken with my brand new Canon PowerShot A590 IS (paid for in cash and at a discount, thank you muchly).
While I still love film cameras (I own a Minolta 35mm that's left over from my reporter days), I have to admit that this little beauty allowed me to take almost 100 high-quality photos as I figured out how to take photos while bobbing around in a kayak. Overall, I'm shocked these photos came out so eye-poppingly well. Okay, I wound up killing more than half the photos I took, but I didn't waste film to do it.
Under the cut is a nice little slideshow of the photos I actually liked. Included in this go-round are a couple of landscape shots, ducks, swans, crazy statues, a cormorant, and a turtle.
Instructions to Navigate Slideshow:
- To control the speed of the slideshow, mouse over the lower right-hand corner of the photos. This will bring up something that looks like a reverse button, a stop button, and a forward button.
- To stop the slideshow, click on the "stop" button. You will then be able to use the reverse and forward buttons to advance the photos one photo at a time at your pace.
- If you want to get more information about a photo, simply click on the image and a new tab will open up with the photo, complete with cutline (written by moi) explaining the photo itself.
