Tis a gray and rather wet morning here in my little part of the world. I cannot complain though. It is still warm out and this is the third day in a row that we haven't had to turn the heat on. Actually almost four days. I count this as one of our many blessings.
I guess I really have to get on the ball here and join up with a photo club. I know I procrastinate, but my friends in Wisconsin keep winning awards at their clubs for their photography and now I'm feeling that I want to try too. Mary Ann and Cheryl, I aspire to take award winning photos like the two of you do.
According to my daughter in law, that big star that I was tying to photograph without much luck the other night was really Venus. I am going to have to pay more attention to the news so that the next time something like this shows up I will be ready for it.
I don't take my tripod to work with me because let's face it, I'm there to work, not play outside with my camera and tripod. So, you can assume safely (unless I state otherwise) that all my photos are hand held. When I was taking photos of the moon the other night, I tried my best to get that "big star" in the photo. It's not the best, but this is what I did manage to get. It's straight from the camera, only cropped to fit here.
The next morning, the mist across the street was so deep that I went out to get a photo of it. I find getting a good photo of the mist is quite challenging and I keep trying.
My last share photo is one that I took this morning. I went outside to see how warm it was and had to stop and oooh and ahhh over my beautiful Red Japenese Maple. Then I went back out with my camera for this photo. Isn't this beautiful?
Now it's time to rustle up some lunch. Tootsie is lying here with that "feed me please" look on her face. Maybe I'll cook up some scrambled eggs and green peppers. Oh yummy! That does sound good. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
