Back To Basics

The Canon PowerShot S3is has been a faithful companion in my journey through the lens. I recently purchased a Canon PowerShot Sx260 HS that was quickly becoming my main weapon of choice in this journey.

Several weeks a go a good friend told me she was letting her daughter use her Canon SX10 this summer. I told her she could us the Sx260 HS since she likes journeying through the lens as much as I. Actually a little more than I do I belive and knew NOT having a camera was, well a cruel but noble sacrifice.

So as my SX260 heads out and about to parts unknown I turn back to my S3is and a used G3 I picked up a few weeks back. Here a few I took recently. Enjoy!

A thistle about to bloom.
The head lights of a Classic Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible of unknown age.
A gardner snake in our back yard. Notice the head “puffed out” to imitate the triangle shape head of a poisonous snake.
A saluting Daisy.

Taking A Moment From Resting

I am on two days doctor ordered rest. I am a terrible patient but have complied with those orders for the most part. As one who likes to move about the need to move overcame me as the day got brighter. So I had to take a little walkabout and see what I could see. Here is the rewards of my (very) brief time in the sun. Enjoy!

I found this guy sunning out back by the fence.
A white violet? Who knew. Not me obviously.
Bees are hard to photograph because , well they are busy.
My cat showing me how it is done. He has this bed rest thing done pat!
