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.

  1. Thats a lot of white!!! Great job, nice selection of images. My favorite is the top image. Don't you just love all that SNOW! ;))

  2. I love all your images here...really beautiful. I like how the first shot was captured from higher than the scene. Really cool.

  3. I love the first image...just beautiful!

  4. Wow, you got a lot of snow. I love the first one with all the snow covered branches.

  5. Very beautiful. I love the contrast colour of the branches in the snow.

  6. hi! i commented the other day, but it hasn't shown up...not sure what i did wrong. :) anyway...i love that top image, the way you framed the lamp (?) with the branches. just beautiful! great job!

  7. Gina,
    I checked my SPAM folder and there is nothing in it.. so your guess is as good as mine about what happened to your post... but it's here now, so Thank You for your comment.
    The framed item in the photo is a bird bath.;)

  8. Now that is so pretty. Love the first one with the bird bath being covered with snow. I so miss my old house. That is white and the yard have a lot of trees and the snow is pretty in the backyard. Now I love in near the city and no trees.

  9. I had just warmed up when I clicked on your blog. Now I have to get a sweater and throw another log on the fire. Beautiful !
