Hello, welcome to my personal photo blog....

I just jumped onboard with the Mirrorless technology!
An ILCE Sony A6000
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 also have a Canon SX50HS.. for those Moon shots.. heh.

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 just 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.

Photo Blogs I submit to are in the side-box. I hope I have encouraged you to join in..

Enjoy.......... Ellen

Our World Tuesday - May 31

This is the last Our World Tuesday photo for May!  I think it should be special, but I'll have to go look.......... 
OK, I found this relic in someone's pasture along the road. That was back in 2015, it no longer sits there. I hope someone bought it to restore to when it was brand new. 





























For you Firetruck buffs, it's an International about late 1930s. 

PhotoSunday - Skyscraper

The PhotoSunday challenge this week is Skyscraper. There are no skyscrapers here on the prairie, but I imagine this is as close to a skyscraper as I can come.

























This is a Grain Elevator, we also have Silos... they're different, but alike! ;)

Skywatch Friday - Sunrise on the Prairie

It's the last Skywatch Friday of May 2016!  Here are my submits... I took these last weekend, while at our country farm planting the garden. A cup of coffee and out the door at Sunup. Quiet 'click' sounds of my camera shutter calls to a pheasant that stirs awake a turkey.. then a distrubed buck snort and a variety of beautiful bird songs....

Have a beautiful day.....
