My birthday was last week. I decided on a whim that I would like to get a new point+shoot. The one I use is quite old and pretty mediocre/poor in quality. I always kind of dread pulling it out. It makes feel guilty for not lugging along my big giant SLR which obviously takes MUCH better photos. The reality is that it’s just not always convenient to drag that thing along. So, I read about a cute little p+s that Nate of The Image is Found uses for impromtu family shots. He and his wife are both insanely talented photographers. I love their blog and I’ve always admired their quirky family shots. I knew that was the p+s for me. My Canon SD870 IS came in the mail yesterday and I *love* it! I’m sure you’ll be seeing some images from it soon.
