I have been wanting a point and shoot since I sold my Fuji Film x100.   Too often I see a cool camera or something neat I want to share.   My Leica often just isn’t the right tool.

I was happy when I picked up the camera this morning that the battery had a partial charge so I could shoot it a bit while I was running some errands.  The camera is tiny so I can easily slip it into my pocket or a camera bag…

I love the colors this camera can produce…

While I was out I also picked up a camera for my 6 year old (at his request)!   I was cleaning up around my home office the past few days and found tons of points cards from Yodobashi-san and Bic Camera.  In Japan many of the stores, especially electronic stores, have point cards where you might get 10% or 15% back as points you can use on your next purchase.  For example, if you buy a $1,000 lens, you might get $150 in points that you can use starting the following day. You collects lots of these living in Japan and it is very easy to lose track of them.    I was able to get a lot off of my camera and his with points.

I stopped off to pick up a new home phone… after listening to an exhaustive explanation of all of options and the clerk triple confirming exactly what I wanted, when I was thinking of buying…

…he let me know that ‘hot pink’ was the only color they had.   Sometimes I wish people could just deliver bad news up front in Japan rather than dancing around it for 15 minutes.  You don’t have it.  I get it.  I’ll walk across the street and pick it up…

I stopped off quickly for a small bite of sushi… the perfect meal when you don’t want to be full.

I am thinking of applying to do an exhibition there…  I am working on a coffee table photography book this year and figured it would be nice to do a showing around the same time.

If I did a exhibition would you come?
