I’ve carried around my Panasonic Lumix ZR1 almost everywhere. It’s small enough that it easily fit into my pant’s pocket. And though this is an inexpensive, refurnished point and shoot I got for $70, it really does take decent photographs especially at ISO 80. So much so that, for now at least, it ‘s my daily carry around camera. For a while I was hoping my water proof Sony TX5 would fill that role but I found that ultimately, even at its lowest ISO, the image quality didn’t satisfy. I stopped carrying it around, even though it was rugged and smaller than the Panasonic.
I took this photograph a couple of days ago. We were going out to dinner and I noticed these stormy clouds after a day of badly needed rain. It was still bright enough that I could shoot easily at ISO 80. A little motion blur, leading lines and a melancholy blue image creating a moody photo for the start of a new work week. Taken in West Austin traveling along Loop 360, also know as the Capital of Texas Highway. What a cool name for a highway.
