pretty in pink

Yesterday we finally got out to a park and I used my new camera outside for the first time! It was sometimes cloudy but it was comfortable, at last! The leaves haven't started to turn yet and there aren't many things blooming right now but we managed to find a few. Here's a perfect example of what I couldn't do with my old camera but now can. Yay!

  9. That's really beautiful. I'm always struck by the fact that sometimes the simplest subjects can produce the most gorgeous pictures. Nice job.

  10. Wheeeeee! Aren't new cameras fun?! Thank goodness they're digital. I've probably shot 3-4 thousand pix since we got ours back in June. No wonder I don't have very much time to read or blog anymore. I'm too busy messing with pictures. :)

    Purty flower, by the way. :)

  14. Thanks to everyone from Weekend Snapshot for the comments.

    Grace- sorry I have no idea what kind of flower it is. I'm not very good with flower or plant names.

    Nymeth- Thanks. I thought it would be fun to have a Halloween theme this month. :)

    Kookie- I know what you mean, sometimes it's the simplest things.

    Les- Thanks. It was very fun to finally get out with the new camera. I'm still getting used to changing lenses and all that but it was fun. I really can't imagine using a film camera anymore!

    Nancy- Really? It's thanks to the macro lens but I thought you could take just about anything! :)

  19. Well, it's really just that I've been using the same lenses for about 24 years (that's why we stuck with Minolta), and those with the macro feature no longer work. One of them makes a grinding noise, so I think it got some grit in the workings.

  20. Nancy- 24 years? I think it's time you treat yourself with a new macro lens!! :P
