I am new to this blog and happy to observe that unlike most blogs the commentary here is considered and shows consideration. I picked up a camera having moved to Australia from Africa to document the journey. Since then I have become enthusiastic about recording what I find in my new city (Melbourne). Compacts suit me and I am seldom without one now. Because I am a novice this site has been an essential guide and fascinating insight into what's possible. Last week I visited the Victoria Falls and discovered that there are all sorts of challenges to getting the shot you want including "keeping your powder dry".
