What Do You Believe?

I'm just curious: what is it you believe today?

Try it - you might just end up in a poem. (And yes, this question is as loose as it seems.)

Just fill in the blank below. Take as much time as you need.

The New Camera, and My Cat

Poor dear. As it is quite rainy, my cat finds herself the unlucky target of my shooting practice.

This is my practice with the new 60mm lens.  Not sure if this was a wise choice, but I'm going to learn how to use it.  Best used for copy and close-up work.  And for counting cat hairs.


Well over a year later, my conclusion is that this has been a fantastic lens for me. Love it for macros of flowers, and it's good also for copy work.

Rain and Red Dahlia

A new shot, taken today~

Checking In Again

It's been a long long time~  During that time I've taken many photos, had some poetry published, visited Glacier National Park, taught extra classes at the gym, and lost my iMac hard drive.

Yes, 33K photos gone with it.  Yikes.  Software retrieval doesn't work, so Apple and the Mac Store say the only way is a surgical procedure, in a "clean room."  How much?  Anywhere from $800 - 2000.  Mmmm, maybe not right now~

Fortunately, I have some photos on Flickr, FB (although I found out that those are at greatly reduced resolution), and on Fine Art America.  That will tide me over for a little while~

I've been spending some time on both Flickr and Fine Art America.  It's been great getting to
know other photographers, sharing the work, and getting feedback.  Dangerous, too, as I learn about other cameras and equipment I can save up for!

The link above shows some of the wonderful garden photos on FAA (mostly *not* mine).

I'm really enjoying getting out during rains (yes, it's been a weird Northwest summer, with some heavy rains and thunderstorms!), photographing my flowers, birds and insects.  I love the vivid colors after a rain, and the morning light on the rain-wet subjects.

 Well, the rain has let up and I can see the steam rising from the lawn.  The sun is shining, so I'm sure there's a rainbow - a nice one - somewhere. Out I go!
