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........

The Round Robin Photo Challenge: HOT STUFF

HOT STUFF is the latest theme for The Round Robin Photo Challenges.

Our step-daughter and husband got us some little gifts for Valentines Day.  This is what Lar got.  And he was delighted. WE will use them, you betcha.  The dried Red peppers are from our garden.

As always, click on the thumbnail to get the larger view. 

I got a chocolate Rose and a Valentine box of  Ferrero Rocher chocolates.


  1. I love anything with dried chillies!

    1. It seems we've come up with the same subject! Hot minds think alike!
      There's nothing better than a nice Sweet Red Pepper too!

  2. Very cool - or, I should say, hot! I love the creative names they come up with for hot sauces. And your green backdrop sets off the greens and reds of your subject perfectly!

    1. Hi Karen,... yep, at least that green t-shirt looks lots better as a backdrop than the micro-wave.
      Thanks for stopping by.

  3. LOL! Excellent take on the subject! I thought about something like this, but went the safe route. LOL Well done!
