    I knew that the circus was in town, and thought I might find someone from the circus in uptown during the lunch hour. When I didn’t see anyone, I checked with Popcorn Man (a food vendor always at the corner of Trade and Tryon) and was told that there had been a clown there but that he had left. I walked down to where the circus was set up, and asked a policeman where they had the animals. I happen to get to the back entrance to the circus minutes before the elephants crossed the street (pure luck). I did wait for them to return, and picked the place with the best lighting for time of day. I have had the G3 for less than a month, and it would have been impossible to take this without the viewfinder. All settings on automatic and shot with the 20mm lens. I can't say enough about how much I like this camera. The focus is so much faster than the GF1 and I thought that the GF1 was fast. This has left my old D200 on the shelf, not because it is heavy, but that the
    G3 shots are so much better.

    I often take a walk down the streets of Charlotte and here is a tour of Charlotte using Segway. They have ordered several more to have on hand when the Democratic Convention comes to town. I talked to the tour guide and I was waiting for the tour to cross the street. Easy shot? Not as easy as it looks, as this was the best one after trying on several different trips to town. They almost always were on the wrong side of the street. All photos taken either with the 14mm or 20mm lens.

    They're embedded flash objects, so don't hold your breath for the images on iPad. They will never show up.
