Dream Camera


PROFESSIONAL INTERPRETATIONS WELCOME (pro bono)
I've just awoken from a dream about a friendly little green frog to whom I became attached.
I'm not sure where it was I found him, but he was crawling along a wooden strut of sorts seemingly
not knowing where it was going. So I put him in my pocket and being the dreamer that I am, promptly
forgot about it until what seemed much later when it croaked. I don't mean that he 'croaked it' as in deceased - no,
but he was hopping mad so I took him to some place that may have been by the edge of lake and let him go. I will miss him;

Taken with an OMD (Only My Dream) camera, of course …

Re: Dream Camera

Thanks Larry, you may be surprised to learn that both images were shot 15 yrs ago on the XZ1 point and shoot, still my first choice for macro.

Re: Dream Camera

The XZ1 was pretty good all round Mark. Mind you your 40-150 is no slouch close up, great for butterflies.

Re: Dream Camera

Yes Phill, especially butterflies in flight would be a challenge for the XZ-1.
