A lovely new toy!

I've been playing with my fantastic new camera - a gift from Tony, my lovely, lovely other half, who managed to scrape the money together from what was left over after trading in 3 guitars to finally get his beloved Les Paul...! ( A long awaited love!)
I've been so frustrated for so long by my pathetic little 3px camera, and missing my tempremental old 35mm that I loved years ago...

These were just taken on auto with the macro setting just to try and get the hang of the camera - I need to read the hugely complex advanced guide so I can work out how to use the manual settings, but I'm so impressed just as it is! I think I'm going to have a lot of fun!


  1. Great Pics, Carrie. What brand of camera did you get?

  2. mmmm - FUN! My camera doesn't have macro, would have loved that, but its amazing still what I can do with it as long as I can hold my hand steady. I bet you're going to LOVE yours. Happy shooting.

    And happy solstice!

  3. How exciting, your images will no doubt be great reference material for your artwork. Next you will be getting to grips with Photoshop, or maybe you are already a whiz?

  4. Hi folks!
    Cenya, it is a... (had to go and look)Canon powershot S5IS 8.0 mega px!
    And I doubt it Valerie! I'm not great at photoshop, haven't got the patience or the skill! I just use it for cropping and adjusting brightness/contrast and image size, I think I'll be sticking to brushes and paper!
    And yes of course - Happy Solstice indeed! What perfect midsummer weather too... We've been working so long and late we've hardly seen it unfortunately... Time and season turn inexorably!
    Carrie... :-)

  5. I love your photos very much!

    The green-in-green-photo is great!

    Have a wonderful day and a very nice weekend!

    Greetings from Germany,

    I love photography in the nature too!
    And I have added a small photo with a rotted trunk and a clover sheet inside on my blog - maybe you would like to come over for a short visit ... ?! :-)

    All the best,
    and a great day!


  6. Congrats on the new camera--they're such great fun--and congrats as well on having such a beautiful place to photograph!
