My resistance to try anything new just caused me to register my new camera, organize all the paperwork, fiddle with the accessories, and trim out all of the foreign-language pages of the manual before braving the step of pressing the “on” button. Once that was accomplished, and the lens hummed outward, my fear left and I was on my way.


I stepped outside. The gerber daisies I planted in “my” new window box haven’t heard yet that I kill any plant in my possession.

From the sky to macro, all on the manual setting.


Inside, the same.


All natural light, manual setting.



This is too easy.

If you’re curious about the camera, it’s a Sony Cyber-shot RX100 111 (DSCRX100M3/B) ordered direct from the company. Just came today!

I have several uses for a good camera, blogging being one. So I’m making a plan, a plan that will force me to learn (arrrrrgh) more than the rudimentary functions of this new gadget. Each day for the month of July, you get to hold me accountable by looking for progress in the pictures I post. That’s a little scary for me because I think the picture quality you just witnessed is already above standard. Are you up for it?

    And we’ll get to see the camera in person (along with its shutterbug). Is it a DSLR?
