It is hard for someone of my folks generation to think that something seven years old is old and obsolete. For those of us who were born right before or shortly after c.d.’s became the new tech, well we know how quick something becomes old and out dated. I for one love it! I bought a Nikon CoolPix 4600 for a dollar in a yard sale last year. It had a busted screen but after I took out the batteries and installed them properly it came to life. I added a SD card and fun times ensued! I took a lot of pictures with it till it gave up the electronic ghost this January. I have since bought another one off an online auction. This picture was taken September of 2011, with my old 4600, and I just ran across it today and it reminded me of what a capable little camera the 4600 is. Enjoy!
The last week has been some what of a challenge. Getting a chance to shoot has been as well but I have a very good friend with a wonderful garden I know I can access. My wife and I enjoy it and the quite it brings. It is open anytime I need a space to breath in.The Tulips are from her garden and the Magnolia Bush from a drive by shoot I did after a storm passed midweek. The storm left the petals battered but still standing. Enjoy!
Authors note: I heard this tongue in cheek quote on the NPR show On Point from nature recorder Bernie Krause, author of The Great Animal Orchestra: Finding the Origins of Music in the World’s Wild Places.
…….more time to shot outdoors right? Well maybe not if I have to factor in the list of spring chores and unfinished projects. So I am grabbing the photo opportunities as they come. Here are several I have taken in the last week. Enjoy!
I stopped by our local lake and took several pictures with my sister-in-laws Nikon D40 and my Canon PowerShot S3is.Here are two from the Nikon.Enjoy!
The new blog is about my journey through pictures as a novice photographer. There will be some dialog but mostly just a picture or two or three once a week or so. Enjoy!
