New Camera!

I just got a new digital camera: A Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5. I love it! After quite a bit of research I found that this and several of the Canon Powershots seemed to be the best point-and-shoot cameras on the market.
Anything would be an improvement over my 9yr. old Nikon Coolpix.

I was traveling for work last week in San Francisco. Here are some shots of the city and views of the new Academy of Sciences, the DeYoung Museum, and a James Turrell installation.
