The wind today was horrible so the OFM started messing around with the flower pictures from yesterday. He was wanting to see what our cheap Canon camera could do.

Here is the flower picture in its original status as taken with the camera.

This next picture is a very small cropping of the original picture above. The cropped picture was enlarged 200% with Photoscape. This picture is of one stamen in the flower original above.  It amazed the OFM that a camera that costs less than $100 is able to get this level of resolution.

We are very pleased about many of the abilities of the little pocket camera. It is a major asset in recording our attempts at trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. For a moment there I thought you were going to let your inner Georgia O'Keefe out and were setting up the flower to paint.

  2. Perhaps I have asked you before...you know me and my CRS...what model of Canon did you buy?

  3. Wonderful photo of the flower, it is amazing what an inexpensive pocket camera can take such wonderful pictures, I love mine too.

  4. Get that paint brush out and paint a picture of it. You may be another Bob Ross. . .
