I took my camera and went for a walk. I cooked with my camera at my side. My camera was with me as I played with my pet. Captured through my lens, the everyday and commonplace seem to gain added life and lustre. A sudden downpour, with its promise of fascinating new sights, is welcomed with open arms. Anytime, anywhere with anyone. The camera closest to hand, connecting you to what you love most. Always together. The RICOH PX, in your pocket today and everyday.
