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........

Ceiling Fans and Chandelier

We've started our Winter projects. First we borrowed some scaffolding and hauled it home and put it together in our living room. We have a cathedral ceiling.. not vaulted, CATHEDRAL. It's 20ft. high at the peak.  
Our fans quit working. They were only 20 years old... funny they both quit working at the same time... They each must have had equal amounts of dust in them.  We finished that. I should say Larry got 'er done. I held my breath. 
The scaffolding is 29" wide and we had to have 3 skinny sections high. It's scary up there and it wiggles! It's like walking on a suspension bridge. Been there, done that, I don't need to do it again. 
Larry is changing out the bare bulb we had for a light to a chandelier as I type. I'm acting gopher for this job. All he had to do at the top was change out the chain and weave the cord through it. Then he came down to the bottom scaffold to install the 5 light chandelier.  It's all done with bulbs in and one bulb just burned out! They were old, we've had them since we bought the light. Besides, we're thinking we need less wattage. It's awful bright in here. A dimmer switch would be nice......... 

Well, here's some pics of the fans and the bare bulb... the before the chandelier pic.
