The olympus vg-110 super macro mode.

The inexpensive VG-110 compact digital camera has a supermacro mode. To obtain the sharpest detail you should set the focusing mode to spot and not face/iESP or AF tracking. As one can see above, even an insect can be seen clearly in the flower.

Here is another photo using the Super Macro feature of the Olympus VG-110.

Funny poses with statues

I saw this in Facebook. They dont shock me though, since the situations are somewhat expected. but do enjoy.
