taking shots

My new Sony digital camera arrived last Thursday, and thanks to it and Flickr, I’ve been crazy-obsessed with it. One of the groups on Flickr–Squared Circle–is devoted to taking pictures of circular objects or phenomenon and then cropping them to a square frame; because Flickr automatically resizes the thumbnails, whatever the original resolution, to a single size, the slideshow from this group can be oddly hypnotic as the images morph from one to the next. I’ve submitted a couple dozen to this group alone, and have started seeing circles everywhere.

I really love the new camera, and I’m having a lot of fun with my latest hobby/obsession.
