The Internet Is All Powerful...

I have a new camera, a Panasonic Lumix compact* that I picked up for a largish song on Woot!. It has a Leica 12X lens, takes great photos, and is small enough to easily pack in my bike bag, or even in my pocket. Unfortunately, I rarely actually put it in my pocket, which means that I now often find myself wishing I had done when I chance across something neat to photograph. Like yesterday, when I saw a car with this bumper sticker parked outside a hobby shop in Maplewood, NJ.

Fortunately, someone invented the internet, so I was able to track down an image of the sticker, if not the car it was on, so it all worked out. I don't usually hold with bumper stickers, but I may need it stick one of these on the Machinamobile.

* Which by odd coincidence, they are again selling today.
