Today we went to Vatican City. It was my 2nd time there, and Melissa's first. We had a really fun and informative tour guide who was from Maryland and it was nice to be around someone who spoke unfiltered english. I don't know what it is with me and Vatican City but I always can only shoot with a little pocket camera. I brought out the big gun Fuji S5 but forgot to bring a CF card!!!
Last time I came I brought the Fuji S20 and the battery was so dead it had like one shot left in it. Oh the other thing is either I laughed too loud or talked too loud anyway the cop came up and said hold it down. Imagine that!
What was funny is in the last photo where the two of us are at St Peter's Square, Lauren, our tour guide took our photo, but said it needed more fill flash. I had no idea how to "force" flash on my Canon PowerShot, so she says, here let me set it on Manual, pops through some buttons and takes a shot with fill flash in the middle of the bright backlit square. It was funny because supposedly I am a famous photographer and I had no idea how to work the camera.
Honestly, I really like shooting with the point and shoots. If you look at the quality of the images, all taken with the PowerShot 870, I think you'll agree there's not a huge reason to bring a big camera.
