FSO - My Camera and me

It's my constant companion, I rarely leave home without it, it has many charms and some fantastic abilities but like a wild beast it has to be tamed before it comes biddable.  It's taking time for me to learn its ways, understand its sensitivities, appreciate its talents.  I'd love to be able to make it sing but we are still working on the scales.  I own it but I'm its slave.  No, not a cat, my camera.

We have lots of fun together.  We look into gardens:

 and sometimes we climb into the garden and look out:

 Sometimes we look up and it doesn't argue with me when I declare I've seen an angel winged Miss Piggy leaping in heaven. 

and sometimes we look down:

 and sometimes we get down and look along and it becomes my accomplice in my effort to convince the council there is deep rut forming across our road. 

As often as not I forget all the clever things it can do:

But the one thing I appreciate about it above all else is how accurately it tells a story.

What better companion could I ask for?

I'm looking forward to seeing how the rest of the FSOers introduce us to their cameras.  They will be here.
