I don’t pretend to know anything about photography, but I do like to take photographs. I usually shoot whatever I find aesthetically pleasing, personally.

I have a DSC-P150 Sony Cyber Shot, 7.2 megapixels. It is a nice camera. Here are some of the cooler shots I have taken with it.

The fifth photograph down – the car park – is an excellent shot: quite eerie. The couple of moon shots are good too. Nicely done.

You’ve taken some good photos.
