As I announced earlier in the week, my new camera has arrived. It's a convenient point-and-shoot that also is waterproof to 10m/33ft. So far, I've been having way too much fun with it.
Since my parents are in town, I took two days off from work earlier this week to stay with them in my great aunt and uncle's condo right on the beach on the North Shore. Two whole days on the beach = plenty of time to experiment. I wasted a lot of time taking excessive, random, and unnecessary photos. I have to get to know my new camera, though, right?
Here is the first of one of my experiments. So I have a camera that can go underwater. I could use that feature to take clear photos of things underwater, but why not use it to take photos of things--like me, for instance--out of the water? You can probably get a similar effect using various softwares, but this is the real deal, beautifully distorted by none other than nature herself. Here are a few of my fun shots.
This is my favorite. Would have been better without the glare on the right, but still, the way it reshapes my head and nose is great.
This one turned out the least flattering, I think. Kind of awesome--I look like an alien.
I love what this one did to my ear.
OK, that's enough of that. More photos to come!
