I had almost forgotten how much I loved it when digital cameras were invented!  Let’s face it…I am not photographer by any means.  I can certainly churn out an occasional good snapshot…but there’s no epic artwork coming out of my cameras!  Still, I appreciate those good snapshots when I get them because, well, I so […]

Photography.  High on my list of the things that make me go hmmmm.  I’ve become convinced I really should just resurrect my little Brownie Starflash (c 1960 and in pristine condition w. box, booklet and unflashed bulbs.  One roll of undeveloped film…do you suppose I could buy a roll of film for it?) since it is probably […]

009, originally uploaded by Nanas House. We headed out for the annual Community Days fireworks display by the local Exchange Club this evening. As every year, they put on a great display. Mike went out early today to check out a spot with a good view and no crowds so I could set up my […]

IMG_0027 Originally uploaded by itsewyou I loooove fireworks. I have since I was a little girl. You knew that big bang was coming and you were a little afraid but you wanted to hear it anyway because you knew you would be rewarded with beautiful light and colors. Our house is kind of high on […]

I’ve been taking some photography classes.  My little pea brain now understands what white balance is.  It also knows it wants to FIX IT most times.  (This is where learning to like my camera better comes in…and I’m sure I will sooner or later..)  Meanwhile, I’m not as satisfied with the white balance that you […]

I Like My Camera Better

But I still don’t love it.  I think I love the Nikon D5000 a lot.  Maybe the D90.  Can’t figure out why the D90 is a hundred bucks more.  I don’t see that big a difference.  I LOVED the idea of the new Olympus EP-1 Pen and I loved it in my hand.  Great size!  […]

Well…I was so thrilled I found the macro button on my camera and snapped off a photo of my sisyrinchium…you remember it right?  It’s this shot.  And truly, I though it was pretty good.  Not going to win any awards, surely…but pretty good.  I’m just saying.  It was focused…the lighting could have been a smidge […]

You know, I bought this camera in 2006 right as it was introduced.  I’ve used it about 3 times.  Frankly, I get better pictures from my iPhone.  That’s a sad thing because I know it’s a great camera.  The photos Jenny just sent me have renewed my resolve to start to use this camera.  Somehow, […]

My, my, my!  Look at that header on my blog homepage!  That is precisely the patio and the house I would have if could have any old cottage in the world.  ALAS!  Cottages such as this exist only in Europe…and gardens such as this exist ONLY in UK.  I’ve pirated (with permission of course) the photo […]
