Why I Usually Have My Digital Camera With Me Nearly All The Time Now...

Last year, I bought a Canon Powershot SD450 digital camera. It has been one of the best purchases I ever made-- not nearly as good as the $20 I spent on a Matches ad a few years back, of course, but it's been great. I have taken over 3500 pictures since I bought it. It's so small that I can throw it in my pocket or my work bag and carry it everywhere.

After missing a couple of great photo ops, I carry it nearly all the time. Here are a couple from yesterday.

Look at the phone number in the back window. I did not flip the image. I'm trying to figure out if:

A. The guy is trying to sell the car, but only to people who are driving away from him-- they can then see it correctly in the rearview mirror.
B. The guy is trying to sell his car to someone with dyslexia.
C. The guy is trying to sell the car to one of his passengers, who can just turn around and see the number.
D. The guy is just butt stupid.

This was in the parking lot at Costco, at one of the entrances. Notice how far up the car is on the island. All four wheels were up in the air. He had to have been really moving to do this.

I love the sign on the inside of the car. Doh!

Wow, words can't begin to describe how cool that picture of the "For Sale" car is.

I haveta get me one of those smallish cameras. I have seen stuff like that (but honestly not *that* cool) that I would have loved to take a picture of, but wasn't packing a camera.

digital is an excellent choice for this type of photography. I like my 35mm for family gatherings and serious pics. But I might be inclined to get a digital so I do not miss out on this type of picture.

I wonder if the costco car was left there over night, maybe the driver was drunk and walked home.
