Do I love my new camera?

We went to Roger's Gardens in Newport Beach this morning. It is a beautiful place, insanely expensive, but filled with the most beautiful plants you can imagine. I snapped a few photos just as we were walking around and this is how they turned out. Pretty snazzy, don't you think? I can't believe that a little pocket camera takes pictures like this. 

It's a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS5 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 12x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom with 2.7-Inch LCD (Black) in case you are curious.

I am smitten.

  1. I am smitten right along with you.
    If I ever buy a camera (instead of inheriting the ones my children discard)- this would be on my #1 list.

  2. This is the first time I've ever actually had my very own camera. I'm feeling a little like Cinderella. :-)

  3. The flower pics are insanely beautiful. Nice job it does close up. I do still like the kitty nose you posted, too.

  4. Great choice of pocket camera; fine flower images. Cards?

  5. Cards? Ooh, I'll have to ponder! :-)

  6. Amazing photos! And I was really impressed when I read the notes about it being a pocket camera. I think you have a winner there!
    Thanks for sharing these gorgeous posies! Now, can you post the smells of the flowers, please? :)

  7. No surprise you take super photos, they are beautiful as is your art work.

    Thank you for the tip about your new camera. I hope to buy one that will take good close ups.

    Happy eyes,
