After dabbling with a basic point-and-shoot digicam and enjoying the experience (see the previous post Digital Curiosity), in 2006, I felt the need to shoot with a more advanced or serious digital camera, particularly one with manual (PSAM) modes. After a brief but exciting search, Canon PowerShot A95, which, during those days, was a highly regarded compact digital camera, was zeroed-in on. Went for it and started shooting with it as soon as it arrived. Thoroughly enjoyed using it and as luck would have it, we travelled quite a bit around Rajasthan in subsequent months and the camera went on all the trips too 🙂 My tryst with the A95 lasted for only 4 months after which I bought a Digital SLR. The following are some of the better photographs taken in those 4 months (from August to November 2006), hope you will like them! They are available as affordable prints on archival paper, print sizes: 16×12 inches or 12×12 inches.
