I’ve had this camera for a few months now. It’s a point and shoot. I put in batteries, and it went to a setting I had not recognized before. Auto SR.
I have seen Auto before, but SR? I checked. Auto scene recognition.

For years, I have wanted to take decent macro shots, but with these little point and shoot cameras, without having any control over the focus, I was lucky if I ever got a decent macro shot.

As for other creativity–I had to back off. I completed 8 projects in 8 months. Every facet of creativity: energy, creative wellspring, chi – was totally run down. I spent the last few weeks just letting myself rest. And it has worked. I have a modicum of strength in reserve.
How are things in your world?
