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........

Round Robin Challenge ~ Frozen

A few of my older shots of Frozen.......... for the Round Robin Photo challenge the first photo is my submission for the photo list. I couldn't help uploading some other  'frozen' wintery shots.

An old broken down house with a nice lens flare.

A leaf melting into the snow.... at -3°.

Snowshoes needed. Really.


  1. I love the leaf in the snow such a clear photo

    1. Thank you Gill... It's amazing how the sun intensifies the heat from the dark leaf.. even at subzero temps!

  2. Beautiful shots!

  3. Hi, Ellen, and welcome to the Round Robin Photo Challenges! I love all of these shots, but the first one is my favorite by far. Do you really wear snowshoes? I've always wanted to try them, but living in Arizona now I suppose I'll never get the chance!
