My old digital bit the dust, so I am trying out my new Canon Elph 100HS. In the four years since I bought my old Sony, technology has wrought marvels, and I have taken way too many images in exploring the improvements. My favorite image used the magna-zoom lens to capture a fragment of my living room.
This painterly image lets us look into the faux antiqued mirror on our Julian Mirror, which is reflecting a painted screen on the opposite wall. On Facebook Barry Dixon recently showed a similar image, whose fuzzy focus piqued my interest, hence this photo as an homage.
Lovely as I find the image, my camera primarily records details in documentary accuracy, which led me to walk around our production studios this morning, trying out my Elph’s capabilities.
Here’s a corner detail of the standard Polonaise White finish on our Polonaise Mirror.

Strings of crystals to attach to a chandelier basket.
Later in the day these crystals graced a custom Iron and Crystal Chandelier.
This custom Danieli Chandelier retained our distinctive arm silhouette and only one of the double crowns on the top.
This custom Monaco Chandelier should ship today. It measures 48” x 48” and I would really like to see its 155 pounds installed.
Moving away to an even greater distance, the camera captured a custom Baltic Console that’s 88” wide.
My old camera seemed to lose focus as I stepped back from a product, like in this photo of our Loire Bed. Look how the finials on the tester top lack definition.
I think I like this Canon Elph’s image quality.
Do you have any feedback, and thanks for reading my blog!
