Unexpected...

I was commenting just the other day on the fact that our dear old Kodak DC265 still takes some wonderful photos (they're not very high resolution, but they tend to be perfect for websites). Some of my favourites - be they artistic shots of places I've been, or badly written signs - are on my Flickr site, although I don't really go there very often to enjoy them!

What I wasn't expecting, though, was to receive an email saying that one of my pictures had been chosen for an on-line tourist guide! There's a Web 2.0 travel guide called Schmap.com that features photos and descriptions of popular destinations, and it appears that out that one of the photos I took during my trip to Stockholm has been included in it! Here's a preview of what the guide looks like:



My photo is on the Gamla Stan (Old Town) page.

Since I'm a mere amateur (in terms of almost every discipline, be it photography, music or parenting!) I'm more than happy to share my work, which is why I'm such a fan of Creative Commons licencing. I'm still flattered that they chose one of my pictures, though!

I have to admit, though, I'm very tempted by the Canon EOS 400D as a replacement for our old Kodak, since it's just that little bit more versatile than most 'point and click' cameras you can buy nowadays - and will hopefully take just as good pictures as our 8-year-old classic! (I've had recommendations also to buy the EF 50mm 1.8f lens, since it can make some excellent photos for the price). Something to save up for...!
