OMG, this bus was nightmarish: covered with a couple of dozen floating heads of noteworthy Canadian women, none of which I had ever heard of, naturally (the one shown here is named, amusingly, Abby Hoffman. She is, of course, a hockey player). Where's my Grandma, dammit? Interspersed amongst the terrible oil (?) portraits reproduced on the bus were what appeared to be spray-painted doily stencils. So weird! I mean, if you want to make a feminist statement, I'm thinking you can probably do better than to use doilies (doilies!) as a design motif.
But anyway! This hideous photo marks the debut of my new camera, a fabulous Panasonic Lumix GF1 (no, this isn't a paid product placement). Highly recommended! It's much more powerful than a point 'n' shoot, but less cumbersome than an SLR. Ten years ago I would have laughed at the idea of Panasonic, of all companies, racing to the top of the digital camera field, but their partnership with Leica has served both companies incredibly well, and this is my second camera by them. I am very, very happy! Yay!
