This is what cracked Santa up! And yet, I swear, on the whole, I’ve been sooo good that I treated myself to this new baby!
Why did I need another camera? Well, I could tell you that some people’s philosophy is that you never have too many cameras (hmm? Leo?) but the real reason is that this little Pentax will take macros up to 1cm close. Very unusual for a point-and-shoot. And it only weighs 125g.
Friday, I went to Cimetière de Vaugirard, with my Panasonic FZ5 around my neck and my Pentax W20 in my pocket. The Pentax for close-ups, and the Panasonic for everything else. I had lots of fun for a couple of hours and started walking back. And suddenly, fell down with the Panasonic hitting my chestbone. I was on the ground, hit my chest and my right cheek, and as usual when a white-haired woman falls down, I had two helpful ladies come and pick me up, almost faster than I would have liked! I hurt all over and would have loved a little more time on the ground to recover. 😉
My friend Elly‘s theory, is that the Panasonic was unhappy and envious and organised the whole thing.
This is what happened to the Panasonic dial though:
I stole the Santa cartoon from JustAskJudy. All I had to do was to ask! Isn’t she nice?
The photo of the Pentax was taken with the Panasonic, and the Pentax did a good job of showing the damage on the Panasonic.
