It took six years but I just got a new baby pineapple. And I just got a new camera! So now to take some shots of this cool plant, and compare my new waterproof camera (Olympus Stylus TG3) with my old one (Nikon Coolpix AW100).
Some macros of my baby pineapple using my old camera, showing off its purple flowers. This is about as close as the Nikon Coolpix gets to doing a macro. The crown of my new baby pineapple using ‘Super’ Macro and the Pop ‘Magic’ Filter on my new Olympus. The colours are brighter with the ‘Pop’ filter and the macro is way, way closer.
Here I am using the ‘Drama Magic’ Filter on my Olympus. I’m having a bit too much fun with the filters – I suspect that somewhere out there is an app that will do exactly the same thing to regular photos…
Just in case you were thinking of growing your own pineapple here are some general comments on my baby pineapple: “It’s so cute!” “It’s adorable!”
