Birthday Camera.

So, I went ahead and treated myself to a cool little shirt pocket camera for my birthday:

The Ricoh GR Digital II is a clone in size, feel, and form factor of the Ricoh GR1 35mm film camera, a cult classic among hipster street photographers for its reasonably fast, sharp 28mm f/2.8 wide-angle lens, slim shape, and flyweight magnesium construction.

It's a well-designed camera for pocket carry, although it doesn't do much that my cell phone camera doesn't do as well. It has a better flash, I guess? But mostly it's just really cool.
