A Petal from the Cauldron

By SlowSong
One of the petals from the magnificent cauldron used in the 2012 Olympics in London. A wonderful thing. They have some of the fronds in the Museum of London and this is one of the petals displayed in a glass case. The Version is of a statue, again taken in the Museum, in almost total darkness.

It was my first run-out with the new handbag compact camera and I have to say I'm mightily pleased with it. One or two niggles, but nothing major. The low light handling is pretty impressive.

Many thanks to David, Michel, Ken and Fefe for their unexpected, but very welcome, UAs on my image yesterday. Smile

The lead image is a magnificent work of art, and you have photographed it well.
I love my little Panasonic. I have had three over the years and wouldn't trade them for travel and carrying in my purse for the unexpected shot. They are a marvelous camera.

That's very lovely in a grungy and tarnished way. The new cam seems to work very well although i suspect the photographer contributed in a small way.
