After weeks of whining to my wife about getting a new camera, a golden opportunity presented itself to me yesterday evening while we were out getting new cell phones. I won't bore you with the details of the husband/wife dynamic involved, except to say that I'm pretty sure my wife wasn't fooled at all by my nefarious scheming. (Her own scheming probably had as its end me shutting the fuck up.) I took this pic with my new cell phone:
I was out having a smoke at work and basically just pointed the camera in the general direction of the flower. Auto settings. Features and functions I haven't checked out yet. Eight mega pixels. Etc.
You can't see the big, goofy grin on my face.
