Finally, a Camera Again

The new camera arrived today. It's much smaller than the one that met its untimely end at the British Museum, it has more megapixels, it has better zoom, and it has a pretty dizzying array of features, 90% of which I'll probably never use. It's a Kodak V530, which I know isn't much by Fancy Photographer standards, but considering the type of pictures I usually take, it's great. Case in point:

I don't know if it requires a "SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH C-VARIOGON Optical Zoom Lens" to take a picture of one's own foot, but there ya go. I finished these socks a couple weeks ago. The ankle part is sort of bulky and slouchy, which does nothing to slim the profile of my leg, but I do like the colors. The yarn is Socks that Rock, from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. The pattern is from Socks, Socks, Socks. And yes, I did actually make two. But this foot happened to be up anyway, because this afternoon I managed to hurt my left leg in a particularly stupid and painful way.

I opened your page and thought, "Thank God the camera is back!" Not that I don't appreciate your writing, but I love your pictures too!

Great sock. I LOVE IT!

Well, honestly, how could the world go on spinning without pictures of my feet on the internet??
