Tio Seamus learns a new skill

OK, after much prodding I have posted a few photos from our recent Paris trip. Yes, they are a bit cliche but mejor que nada, eh? More to come as I get the time to sort and edit. Thanks to fellow Fodorites who turned me on to this. http://www.worldisround.com/articles/308222/index.html

Thanks, folks. It really is pretty easy to use this site - I just added a couple more pics.
stars, do you suppose the addition of this skill to my CV will finally garner me a ticket to Stockholm?

Very nice, Seamus!! I felt like I was looking up the skirt of the Eiffel Tower.

I'm not too happy with the digital camera I have--what kind are you using? I might just get one like yours.

P_M -
Welcome back - isn't Portland magnificent?
Most of the shots were from a Canon A430, my first outing with it and I must confess without having adequately studied the user guide ("when all else fails, read the instructions"). A couple were taken with my "old" HP 935. The HP was my first entry to digital photography. I think this HP may have some mechanical problems, or maybe it's just a lemon - it was a major PIA trying to keep it in batteries, would randomly say that the card was unreadable, extended time between taking one shot and being redy for the next, and other interruptions in function. After submitting to HP's agonizing customer non-service on several occasions, I gave up and it now functions perfectly as a paperweight. So far I like the Canon, and its battery appetite is nowhere near that of the HP.
The Olympus Stylus 300 that my partner uses produces nice, crisp shots and has a nice compact design. It uses a rechargable battery, so you have to tote along the charger, but it is smaller than the Radio Shack AA charger I have been schlepping.

Wistful thinking: How I wish it were possible to recharge a camera battery while still in the camera, like you can charge a laptop battery while using it.
