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........

Skywatch Friday

Just like it sounds... watch the sky and take a picture, then post it and link to Skywatch Friday.

....fun place to post and link from. Simply take a picture which includes the Sky, post that picture on your blog and then come here and put your preferred name and link in the relevant places. Try to visit others on the links, those at the beginning and the end.

 Blown out brights, but some sun beams through the clouds.
Another shot with some Post Processing.
