A tale of two cities

Queen Elizabeth's fish pond, Anilao, Iloilo, Philippines

These were taken using my Panasonic DMC-LX3 point and shoot.  A few words about this camera: "it rocks."  While wading through a raging river, I slipped and fell with my camera on one hand.  I tried to break my fall and it was the same hand that was clutching the camera.  It probably soaked for 3 to 5 seconds.  I immediately took out the battery and the SD card.  Let the camera dry for a few days (the weather there was hot and humid), and to my surprise the darn thing was still useable.  The flash doesn't work anymore but everything else seems to.  My myopic eyes couldn't tell if the image quality deteriorated.  The first image (little red hut) was taken after the camera's baptism.  Born again, so to speak.  The second image (raging river) was taken seconds before the camera got wet.
