Saying Good-Bye ( Maybe) To An Old friend


My PowerShot S3is flashed a “lens error, restart camera” code while I was running the zoom out this evening. After changing batteries and trying everything ever mentioned on Canon Forums (well maybe not everything but you get the picture) it still will not reset. Do not feel sorry for me because I am doing a good job of that all by myself! Seriously I am a little bummed but I do have my G3 and Olympus SP-350 to use till I can see if there is anyone who can fix my S3is reasonably.

Till the next time here are few of the hundreds of pictures I have taken with the S3is. I hope you can see why I really love this great little camera. Enjoy!

My Fiftieth Post

This day, the day of my fiftieth post, was at best overcast and ominous like that little cloud hanging over Charlie Brown. Yet I broke out my old friend, the PowerShot S3is, in the hope of kicking it out of the stadium. As I tried a few different manual settings to compensate for the lack of visible UV I discovered the ISO setting above 400 has a good bit of noise. Unfortunately I never recognized this before. As Lucy would tell Charlie Brown “That will be fifty cents” after a session of the obvious. In true Charlie Brown fashion I forged forward with hope and optimism and took the shot. I think that being compared to Charlie Brown is not a bad thing so as always I hope that you Enjoy!


A Few Till The Next Time

With the long weekend coming up I suspect I will busy at work the next couple of days. After that I need to finish up a few house projects as well this long weekend. Well not so much as finish them but at lest get them pointed in a positive direction. Till the next time be safe an as always : Enjoy!

I took a picture yesterday of this Rose but  felt like I “missed” the shot I was after. I went back today and it was almost at the end of its bloom. Still beautiful none the less.
Right above the Rose in the proceeding picture was this new Rose about to be born.
I love Hydrangeas! From dead little sticks in the winter to these wonderful and colorful plants in the spring. Their color is decided by the pH of the soil it is in if I understand correctly.
