A little help.

Lena © Robert Sommers 2013

My friend Lena will be going to asia for several months in the winter and she needs a point and shoot camera. She has some eye issues and has personal difficulty focussing. She has expressed a wish for a light camera with good optics and color saturation. I think she wants to spend less than $600. Anybody have any recommendations? She was in our first show, had the cool photos of the people with the masks as you walked in the door. Has excellent compositional skills. But she shoots automatic. Help her out.

Bird at Sunset


Homeless in LA

I took this in LA about New Years 2012 near Union Station. I put a buck in the guys cup hoping to get a portrait. He refused to look me in the eye (or in the camera's eye). This is what I got.

SD Fair

I got three of these in the Fair. The one I did not get in was the one that I thought was the best of the lot: the one of the Oceanside Pier. It was in a seascape / waterscape category which has one of the biggest number of entrants and they only take about 1/3 of the entries. Oh, well... getting 3 in is not too darned bad!!
