Taking A Closer Look At Things

"I have a Canon G11 camera that does a wonderful job with close-up photography"

Liz Simon is a photographer, writer and cyclist who likes to combine the three in her quest to discover the nooks and crannies of New Mexico. Sometimes, means of transportation other than bicycle are employed---including the Rail Runner and motorcycle.


Maybe it's the times or maybe it's me, but I've gotten interested in taking a closer look at things---in this case, literally, photographically.

I have a Canon G11 camera (which Canon has since replaced with the G12) but it does a wonderful job with close-up photography. My garden looks so fresh in the morning that I was drawn in to take a much closer look. This  camera makes that possible, and easy. And, if there are any techno-geeks out there, PhotoShop makes the rest of the job fun and interesting. Of course what you see on the website has been changed considerably from the original, but hopefully you still get the idea.
