It's been a while since I put some of my photos in a thread of my own, instead of letting other MiceChat columnists steal them.
The occasion is my big Christmas present: the Canon Powershot S3 IS.
It's a model 2006 camera, and it's since been outdated with the S5 IS, but I got mine as a gift in completely unused pristine condition, complete with case. I was giddy and eager to put my first truly "nice" camera through its paces. My previous digital camera was afraid of the dark, so my first test was to take some night photographs.
(It's awful late at time of posting - past 3 am - so I'll post two pictures below and add the rest at a more sane hour. Check back soon!)
You'll notice that some of the esplanade light posts have barricades around them. The "celebrate today" lettering on the banners is not visible (and there are spooky ghost guests) because I overdid the exposure time a little.
Starting with the Golden Gate, I went to DCA first.
