National Camera Day

How could I not celebrate #NationalCameraDay? These images are a few I shot with my handy Nikon Cool Pix P510. I like it because it’s small enough to throw into my purse and just go. No camera bag to lug around. It also has a 42x built-in zoom, plus wide angle.

I also like it because it came highly recommended from a fellow blogger. She’s an amazing photographer and brilliant author. Check out her blog: http://awindowintothewoods.com Much love, Miss Z!!!

That’s all for me today. Gotta run, but have an amazing weekend.

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

Cranky

Hahaha! Cranky describes me when I’m not creating something.

Creativity is part of our inherent nature. Whatever it is you like to do, give it your all with passion.

You have great gifts. Share them!

My Olympus camera is an oldie but a goody and still one of my favorites. She and I had many adventures together and I think of her as my cohort in crime in my early days of photo blogging – LOL

Look Up

According to the stats provided by WordPress, this is my 666th post. I just didn’t want to put that number in as my title. Creepy – that whole 666 thing. Mark of the beast and all. Is it folklore? I don’t know, but I’m not taking any chances.

I came across this video posted by another blogger and I feel like it has so much merit. I, for one, am taking it to heart.

What that means for me is to unplug more. To get out with my camera more (not my phone). To go outside and have a chat with Mother Nature. To go outside and look at the sky. To just take it all in. To take a walk with my husband and my dog. To have lunch with my daughter. To have coffee with my son. To pick up the phone and call my family and friends.

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

New Phone

I believe electronics are like cars … they’re designed by engineers and built so that we have to replace them every few years. Such is the case with my smartphone. It’s been dying a rather slow and painful death for a while now.

So I had to buy a new one. I really like it, especially the camera.

No, silly! I won’t give up on my DSLR’s but I am having fun with the phone. Now if I could just program it to cook breakfast ūüôā

This image is one I took while at the Old Mill District in Bend the other day. Great coffee and artwork … a double winner! Namaste’

Aspen Eye

Looking out of my dining room window, I noticed for the first time the all-seeing “eye” on one of the Aspen trees. ¬†Now that I know it’s there and watching me, I will probably have to have conversations with it. ¬†Please don’t call the guys in the white coats just yet, OK? ¬†I’ll let you know how I and the “eye” get along. ¬†Namaste’

I Didn’t Really Want to See That

While at the Reid Park Zoo in Tucson, I was trying to catch a good shot of the flamingos but ….

No, I don’t need a model release for this shot … hahaha! Namaste’

Change of Plans

Well, well, well … it’s nice to be back into the blogosphere! ¬†Seems like I’ve been gone a long time. ¬†As for the change of plans, I’ve decided to forego the weekly photo challenge for this year. ¬†Too much going on to commit to that.

Instead I’m going to post some of my all-time fav’s that you may or may not have ever seen.

And so … without further adieu … these two¬†images are¬†of a life-size sculpture here in Sisters. I decided to feature one of these at my gallery site. ¬†Namaste’
