Botanical

Not too many good shots this past weekend, so it’s back to the archives of December 2003 we go: Australian summer, New York winter.

A few more flowers from the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney, Australia that I missed on my last pass.

New York

We’re still in the archive here, but at this point, Autumn, 2003, I’ve just decided digital has really arrived and I’ve bought the Minolta Dimage A-1, a “prosumer” all-in-one, 5 MP digital camera with a flip-up rear screen, built-in flash, 28-200mm (equivalent) lens – a camera I really loved. At this point, I haven’t yet learned about Raw and I’m still shooting jpegs straight out of the camera.
