For the past three years or so, I’ve been shooting all my photos with a Canon Powershot SX60 camera. She’s done me good, and I suppose I’ve taken at least 200,000 or so photos with her. But alas, she has begun acting squirrely lately—the zoom lens makes a grinding sound when it moves, and the … More Testing Out the New Camera
A nice relaxing walk at Madeira Beach.
I was last in this museum about seven years ago. Although it is located right at the Pier, I haven’t been inside during the pandemic. But now that my vaxx is fully in effect (finally), I am once again able to visit museums again. Woo hoo!
