Power in the Palm of My Hand

My new year began with a week of relaxation in the Turks and Caicos Islands. What a nice break from the snow and cold of the Midwestern United States...

Once settled in our accommodations on the island of Providenciales on beautiful Grace Bay, I quickly adjusted to the pace of island life, lounging in the warmth of the sun and walking the expansive beach to the rhythm of the turquoise waves...

My Canon Powershot S90 'point and shoot' was my photographic companion for my visit- lightweight, very portable and effortless. I discovered how powerful this little camera could be as I challenged myself to make it my main choice for capturing my vision for the week.  It was so much fun discovering all the tricks this camera could do!  From macro to videos, candid shots to serious compositions, I learned that my S90 is so much more than a "point and shoot" and it allowed me to bring back a collection of both fun and serious images without toting the heavy camera bag.  This was truly a vacation for me!

This week's photo was made in the harbor at Turtle Cove.  While strolling the dock with my daughter, the ever-changing shimmering reflections of the water on a boat hull and on the water's surface caught my eye. I composed the image as an abstract of lines, shape and patterns and it turned out to be one of my favorite images from the week.

My Canon S90 was recently replaced by a newer model: the Canon Powershot S95.  If interested in the specs of this little powerhouse, click here.
