a lovely Ganesh. Polished granite?
Further to yesterday when using my coolpix, which doesn't have image stabilisation, in dim light, I find it helpful to put the strap round my neck, holding the camera in both hands, pull it tight against the strap. The tension creates an improvised tripod and helps steady the image. Taking a deep breath and holding it at the same time when you depress the shutter is good too. Hope you are mending well and can get out and about again soon.
