Sign of the Week

Today I came as close as I ever have to squandering some of my hard-earned on a brand-new and reasonably good digital camera, something I'd never hankered after until I took up blogging in earnest. And here's what brought this on: I was driving home from the supermarket when a sign outside an old house, in the process of being pulled down, caught my eye. It said

DEMOLITION WORK'S IN PROGRESS

Well, yes, I thought. So it is. Demolition work is indeed in progress.

But I've got a nasty sinking feeling that that isn't what the signwriter meant to say.

How about settling for a camera phone?

Those grainy photos (via the poor resolution) make everything look edgy and artistic.

See, you blogged about it without the camera.

But I think csh is wise.

Ahh, the pressures of blogging. I've taken a few good photos with my phone (incl one of Adelaide airport) but the phone has its limits, esp on distance shots.

El, I would never dare aspire to the quality of your photos anyway. But that doesn't mean they're not inspiring.

Alas, I have strong views on cameras in phones, despire the edgy artistic effects about which csh is no doubt correct.

I think the sign has a lovely conversational tone.

And the call of the digicam is hard to resist once the blogging bug has got ya.

you don't need a very good camera to take web-quality photos - little 2 megapixel cameras are quite cheap (and you were only going to waste that money on food or something anyway)

I'd like to see some photos of your garden, if that's an incentive. But I don't really need them, because you describe it so well, so there's a disincentive.
