Haiku

    Spring evening —
Street tree
    Puts dress on.



I love my new camera. The light was so low that the macro autofocus wouldn't work - even my eyes were struggling - but it has a little magnification window that appears unprompted when you use manual, so I could get the bud in the centre sharp.

I think English headline language is very haiku-like. The best translations of haiku into English sound like strangely peaceful headlines or wire stories. [Edit: I've changed the link to a better one with funny comments.]

So, Ms. H, what camera did you buy? Love the photo. Love the brit headlines too :-)

Hi Johanna - the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3. It's very, very good. And it was slightly cheaper than it's shown there.

Thank you! I'm hemming and hawing about getting a new toy, but if I do, it's probably going to be SLR. Or maybe not. I haven't decided, which is probably why I haven't made a move yet...

This is an interesting option.
