I remember the old story of the cow and the farmer. The farmer said to the cow, give me milk and I will feed you. The cow replied, feed me and I will give you milk.
Its been years since I retired from professional photography to become a point and shoot amateur rather than a shooter. I miss my Leica M6 and my Domke, both old and worn but faithful battle companions with as many years of experience as I. I remember meeting with a photo editor for the local daily years ago when he inquired about a hole in the side of my bag, “its a bullet hole” I replied “and yes those are blood stains, “not mine, well maybe some of it is :)”
Today after months of saving and waiting I received my almost new 2007 Canon A720 point and shoot. I just snapped a few quick pics but will do photo tests later this week. This camera is a toy compared to my beloved and long lost Canon G12 but its the only tool I have and so be it the only tool I will use for now.

My dream would be my old Domke filled with DSLR’s and video equipment but for now my new photography business will be a one camera show.
This camera is a huge step up from my dying Canon A540, I’m so excited to see what I can pull from this little baby.
