A Few Photographs....


For Christmas, my wonderful husband bought me a new camera.
I absolutely love it! 
I really love taking pictures, and have thousands of them that I have taken over the years.
The only cameras that I have ever previously owned were small pocket cameras, but always the Cannon brand. They take such quality pictures, so I have always stuck with them.
Why fix what isn't broken, right?

I am still learning all the functions on my new camera. There are so many settings and things to figure out, and to be honest, it's a bit intimidating. Thank goodness our youngest son's girlfriend is a photographer. She has been my biggest help.
Thank you Damie!

 While I certainly don't pretend to be the greatest photographer, I do think my pictures look pretty good.

I hope you enjoyed these pictures. I have been having a lot of fun taking them.

Thank you for stopping by our little red saltbox. 

Happy New Year everyone!

    1. Thank you Susannah! How is your winter going? I can't believe how cold it's been lately. I am so over winter right now, and so much ready for spring.

    1. Thank you, Audrey! The camera was a nice surprise. I'm ready to get out of the house and take pictures somewhere else, though. Just wish the cold would let up!
