First pics!!!

So my mom got a new digital camera. Here I am with the box. It is a Cannon PowerShot SX230 HS, whatever that is. I am not wild about this flashy thing she likes to do, but based on how she has been lately without it, I guess I should consider myself lucky I am even in the shot at all.

Hey mom, how about a shot of just me??

That's better. No stupid card board box in the photo. Just my handsome face!

Woww - that is too close. You can see all my wrinkles.
My dog cousins won't be happy about the return of Flashy Grandma!!

Love to all

A note from the photographer:

I don't know how many of you a familiar with the Broadway musical called Sweeney Todd. Briefly this is the story of a barber who was wrongly sent to prison and his family destroyed by a bad guy. When released he begins the journey of getting even with the bad guy that stole his life. One of the things he finds is his original barber tools - one of which is a very long threatening knife-like scalpel that he uses to shave the hair off men's faces - and which he now uses to slit the throats of customers since he has gone revenge crazy (it is a dark story but excellent - with meat pies made from the customers he kills - waste not want not, you know).

There is a song where he rejoices at the fact he is finally reunited with his scalpel, lifting it high above his head - declaring most dramatically and emphatically that his arm is now whole again!

What does all that have to do with me and my camera??

That's right ...

With camera in hand my arm is now whole again ...

There are, however, no sharp edges.

Love to all,
Flashy Grandma and Power Shot
