"Hurray For the Library!" et al.

First off, friends, I finally got my regular camera back from my brother today.  I loved my old camera (Canon SD1000 Digital Elph) when it was new, but compared to my current (Canon PowerShot S90) it was a PITA -- slow and with a tendency to blur.  I did appreciate the smaller size though.

Let's Talk Blog Photography! or "To Smile or Not to Smile?"

Readers, I'd originally intended today's post to be "Men in Skirts: YEA or NAY," but we're past that sort of thing, don't you think? 

Instead, I'd like to discuss photography.  I believe there are two kinds of people: those who smile in photos and those who don't.
