First and Latest

This is the first outdoor shot I took with a digital camera, my Canon Powershot A80. On March 28, 2004 . I was hiking the Rocktop Trail in Crowder's Mountain State Park when I saw these two rock climbers scaling one of the cliffs near the summit:

The latest digital photo that I've taken was with the same camera (on July 19, 2008), which still works just fine, even though we now own a much better digital camera (also a Canon). This was taken in the station where I work and is one of the photos that I took for the short bit about my job (posted here a few days ago). Appropriately, it's quite an ugly photo and has the very nice title (provided by the onboard computer) of "IMG_0013". Haha.

This has been a really good camera. It has never ceased to work perfectly. I've dropped it a number of times, and it just keeps doing the job for which it was designed: taking photographs. It has some scratches and dents (I once dropped it from quite a distance onto solid granite), but is otherwise working like new.

Well, I'm leaving for a few days to go hiking in the mountains of northern Georgia. I haven't been back to the Georgia mountains for about three years, so I'm looking forward to it.
