camera, collection, DMC-LX3, S30, S80, S95, DMC-LF1, Panasonic, Canon

I purchased my very first digital camera in January 2002, one month after a big economic crisis hit Argentina. How I wish I’d had that Canon PowerShot S30 during December 2001! Definitely low res by today’s standards, but what a fantastic camera. Unfortunately the lens jammed & rendered the camera useless.

photo essay: sydney, watsons bay

Australia, Sydney, Watsons Bay

A little background for new readers… thanks to my best friend & her partner, I had the opportunity to live in Sydney for 7 months between 2008-09. Amazing experience & a much needed break from Buenos Aires. Watsons Bay is located where all that water empties into the Tasman Sea —the space between Australia & New Zealand. Literally the edge of the continent. I catsat there a couple times in this fantastic house (used in a photo shoot for the Ikea catalog!), only 30 seconds from the beach. Rough life 🙂
