Taken with a digital camera from the last millenium

10th place
taken in Melipilla, a small town near Santiago, in Chile. Took this photo from across the street. This camera has a very nice feature where the lens swivels up and down so you can take photos looking down and is easy to go around without being noticed. I kept upgrading within the same model for years until it was discontinued, then bought an Olympus E-330 that had the same feature. Now I own a Panasonic GH1 that has a swivel screen.
