Camera Tricks in Paris

I love the features on our new camera (Canon PowerShot SX260 HS).  Wanted to share some more Paris photos that I took using my two favourite features…Zoom and Color Accent.

ZOOM FEATURE

Armando is not a fan of “zoom” because it can sometimes take away from the quality of the shot.  For me…I’d rather get the shot of the object than it just being an unrecognizable dot in the photo.  Let’s see how the “zoom” got the shot:

THE ARC DE TRIOMPHE

Can you see the Arc de Triomphe?

This is with the zoom…

After using the zoom on my Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, now you can see it.

And with more zoom…

Okay, even I admit that this is too much zoom.

THE SACRÉ-COEUR

Can you see the Sacré-Coeur?

Can you see it now?

See…zooming on my Point and Shoot can be beneficial, Armando :)

COLOUR ACCENT FEATURE

I love this feature and I think the following photos kind of speak for themselves of what this feature is all about.  Hope you enjoy them :)

This moment reminded me of my friend Kim and I when we were little. Our friendship has spanned over 28 years and still going strong. Love ya Kimmie!

I love Luxembourg Gardens…what a beautiful place to reflect and relax!

To amuse myself as I stood in a 2 1/2 hour lineup to see the catacombs, I took pictures of the Square de l’Abbé Migne, a square that the lineup went around.

Le Marais – my second favourite area in Paris.

Pouring rain at Trocadero just before we took part in a Flash Mob for a wedding proposal :)

We were at Trocadero past midnight and they happened to be doing checks of the Eiffel Tower lighting with their disco ball for the Bastille Day celebrations that were happening the following day. We were lucky enough to see the light show in advance.
