Some days my camera and I get along better than others. I've been thinking about getting the new Olympus ultrazoom, but am leery because it uses an older and slower memory card. The Canon I have can do OK ... but I *hate hate hate* the stupid lens cap arrangement and find the camera and I have not-infrequent artistic differences. My old Olympus cameras have been really good to me... oh... what to do?

Was going through recent photos as I dried from my shower and came up with this:
