Made for blogging

The new camera is all set up, battery charged and ready to go. It has an amazing caboodle of functions, and I'm tickled pink that I managed to figure out how to use most of them, and then remember how to navigate to the appropriate function, within an hour of RTFMing and taking experimental pictures of things about the apartment.

Then I tried to think about what I wanted to take pictures of, for the blog, but wouldn't you know it: now that I have a damn camera --- and a damn good one, I might add --- I couldn't think of anything I wanted to take a picture of right now. I could line up all the shoes I own, like Kay did for the shoe meme, but I didn't want to frighten people, either.

So I settled for the next best thing:

The pretty nail polish was courtesy of Little Miss Drinkalot's establishment. The varicose veins are courtesy of wearing heels to work. And the funny-shaped little toes are, according to Terz, courtesy of some of the cover-up shoes I wear that don't fit me quite right.

Speaking of the boy:

That's the line of sight from where I'm parked on the floor tonight, blogging and IMing and generally procrastinating on examination marking.

Ye olde Protestant guilt is kicking in. I'm off to go mark a few examination scripts before bed ...

can't really tell what colour it is. Taupeless Showgirls? Blushingham Palace?

I likes the colour! I'm due for a pedi myself actually.

maybe I missed this sometime ago, but what is the exact make of your Contax... how big is it... do you like it? What is Terz's professional opinion.

I'm currently looking to pick up something for hefting around with me to parties. Something small enough to stuff into a small handbag, but snazzy enough to make me look like Nan Goldin. (whoops... not physically of course)...

I've been eyeing the Powershot s70...ask him what he thinks of it.

The S70's pretty good, but it's about 4 years old (I remember going into the store with an ex-student and he got one) - digital and optical zoom, interchangeable lenses. Runs off AAs. Nothing not to like about it except that, yeah, it's 4 years old...

Go here to find out more.

My bad... the S70 is only 1 year old... I was thinking of the A70...

LMD > I can't remember the name of the colour, but it wasn't either of the ones you mentioned. Does it help if I describe it as a bright mauve or a pinkish lavender?

As for the camera discussion, I leave that to Terz. All I'll add is that Flickr informs me my camera is a Contax SL300R T*.

oooohhhh! The S80 looks very nice... maybe I'll jump on that one!
