DOWNSIDE: I spent the week dealing with eye irritation. The doctor says it's likely a little infection that eye drops will clear up. Still, I prefer contact lenses to eye glasses — the spectacles get in the way at the camera viewfinder and telescope eyepiece and don't correct well for computer monitor distances. Oh, and doc says I need to ditch my contacts — germs may have taken refuge deep inside the silicone matrix ready to attack again!
UPSIDE: I sold the Canon PowerShot A650 IS camera! It really is a fine little camera, as demonstrated in this blog. Excellent optics and exposure system. I wasn't crazy about the viewfinder, however, or LCD composing of shots, or its macro function. It'll be a great camera for its buyer and I'll stick with my bulkier Fuji FinePix when not using the DSLRs.
WEEKEND: No plans as yet. I hope to complete selection of photographs for my little October showing. I guess I need to actually work on that if it's to get done. Better quit writing and start editing!
