Trying Something New

As I mentioned in my last post  I am trying to stretch myself creative wise, not height wise to justify my present weight. As I was finishing the first book I have read since Spring I looked around and decided to shoot something within our study. I cleared The Brides desk off and grabbed a couple of things from my random collection of junk. Here are two of those attempts a trying something new.

I took this one with my Lumix DMC-ZS1. I used a scene mode that replicates a pin-hole camera. I unfortunatley did not get the flash right but I find it cool still.

I took this with my new Sony A3000. I am going to use this for my daily shooter in place of my Sony A300.I will be using that as my portrait camera until I am able to upgrade.

Inbound Bumblebee

I was having a bit of a time taking photos of the Spotted Jewelweed on our place due a wonderful, yet aggravating-to-my-attempts, breeze. The way they hang under the broad, protective leafs of the plant they do not have to have large stems for them to survive. So at a brief break in the breeze I snapped away and it was not till I downloaded this picture did I find out I was photo-bombed by and inbound Bumblebee!
