I bought an ILCE Sony A6000 back in 2015. My little Canon Powershot G3 bit the dust. I bought that one back in 2003 and it just wouldn't quit for over 10 years! Pretty good for digital. Do they still make them to last like that?

The Sony E-mount kit lenses - 16-50mm f/3.5 and 55-210mm f/4.5, and I added the Sony E 30mm f/3.5 Macro lens. I want a bigger Macro lens. 90mm to 150mm f/2.8 or something.

I also have a Canon SX50HS.. for those close-up Moon shots.. heh. I actually got it before the Sony and used it for a year and half, before deciding I needed a changeable lens camera.

I started this blog to upload my own photos so that i could participate in other photo blogs to submit to. Nothing more, nothing less.

I like taking photos of a lot of things I find interesting.. mostly flowers. I also have another blog "Phlower Power" to show off my flower photos.

Those Photo Blogs I submit to are in the sidebar. I hope I've piqued your interest.

Thanks for stopping by........

Community Photo Challenge ~ White

The next Community Photo Challenge is white,  or white on white. 

These were taken in my side-yard. The weather cooperated and gave me a new layer of 'white'.

Waiting For Spring.  My bird-bath is buried with snow and waiting for spring and the birds to return. I like this one best. It's my submission to the White challenge.

Black and White and Sketch Filter. 

 The old Garden Barn.

I tried to find or think of some other things white on white without snow in it, but it was pretty hard.

The Pasture at Quitting Time OR Cabin at Sunset

We've been building a new fence on our property line. The fence goes through a small pond, so we had to wait till it was just the right frozen state to pound down steel posts.  We finally finished the fence through the pond over the weekend.  We can finish the rest of the fence at leisure during the spring.
I took some pictures at quitting time just as the sun was going down behind the cabin... 


I think they're self explanatory.
