It's a 'Smart Camera.' Let's hope it's not smarter than I am!
I think Adam got tired of my old camera, which was held together with a purple rubberband from a bunch of broccoli, would not ever focus on something close-up, and would regularly "flash" when I'd commanded it not to, which ran out the exhausted AA batteries I had to charge too often.
So without telling me, he ordered a new camera, and it arrived today. Actually, Adam was tracking it, and he went to the P.O. and said, "Hand it over, people." So they did.
I promptly went outside in the rain and took pictures of things close-up.
And then a little closer up. I've never been able to do this before. Look at the water! Amazing!
Little mum blossoms:
Water droplets on fern fronds. Oh, I hope you don't get weary of close-up photos, because I might need to do this a lot for a few months!
You can see the veins in the dead leaves :)
And the glisten on the pumpkin!
Here's that plant whose name I know not.
And closer ...
Close-up ... my hand was shaking a little, probably with excitement ...
And closer up. Pine cones look a bit like wood, don't they? I suppose that makes sense.
Here's a lovely sea shell I found this summer, whose pattern I could never show you. Now I can!

Well, that's enough for now. Thanks for humoring me! Perhaps I'll name this camera since I think we'll be very good friends. How 'bout Sammy?
