The Little Ballerina Shark

In the middle of San Jose, right next to the Fairmont Hotel, was a statue in a fountain... A statue of a shark dressed as a ballerina. It felt as if it had fallen out of some alternate universe childrens' story. Quite cute, in a strange way. Maybe it was the braids, or the little skirt, or just the yellow ballet shoes on the outstretched fins...



It turns out that this was a remnant of a 2001 art festival, similar to the Cow Parade, called Shark Byte that had been across the entire city of San Jose.

I recommend the Nikon Coolpix 5000, a 5 megpixel monster that produces 14Mb images. I'll try to post some photos using it at some point.

is it smaller than the Sony 5mp whcih is all lense and just too big to be practical? I want 4mp in something the size of the baby Nikons or Fujis

Re: Your camera is excellent.
It's pretty compact. Not sure about the Sony 5mp, but the Nikon fits into my coat pocket easily enough. The lens retracts into the casing when not in use, but there is an option to bolt other lenses onto it as well, if you're that way inclined. It's consistently given me better pictures than a 35mm, and I've printed out at 13x19 inches with little or no degradation. 8x10 prints from an Epson 2000P look stunning, quality-wise.
