I purposely only brought my little point-and-shoot camera with me to Paris. I wanted my trip to be relaxed and easy. Mostly, I was totally satisfied with my old friend, but the night we went on the Bateaux-Mouches, I was DYING for my other camera with the longer lens. I wanted this shot so badly, and my camera just couldn't do it. I asked my daughter if I could try hers, because although it is also a compact camera, it's newer and probably a step up. I was able to get this photo, and am totally satisfied.
