Personal history of digital photography :)

I snapped this photo of the Evzons; guards in front of the Greek Parliament, at Syntagma Square in Athens, Greece, in November 2001. For the trip, I borrowed my dad's 1.2 megapixel Sony point and shoot. I just checked and today you can buy one of those Cybershot DSC-S30's for about $40 on Amazon. Now, my cellphone has higher resolution.

I wanted to fit as many pictures as possible into my 4 megabyte (WOW!) memory stick, so this photo wasn't even taken at maximum resolution (yeah, very smart but I learned from my mistakes; nowadays I shoot RAW when I can.)
