New Camera!

Canon PowerShot SX210IS 14.1 MP Digital Camera with 14x Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 3.0-Inch LCD (Purple)

I've been wanting a small pocket sized camera for quite some time now.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my Canon DSLR and have even had thoughts of upgrading it.  But there are just some times when I want to have a camera but don't want to lug that one along. Like last summer when we went to Six Flags, I didn't bring my big one in because it's just not feasible if we all want to go on a ride.  But having one like this that I could put in my pocket would have been perfect!  It's small enough to put in my purse so I can always have it with me.

And it's PURPLE!  Can't get any better than that.

Here are a couple of the first shots I took the day it came...

Not too bad!  Though I did have to adjust the coloring a bit.  Not sure if I need to adjust the settings on camera a little, the menu is a little different and I still need to find everything!

Farewell 2010 Tennis Season

The school tennis season ended for my daughter last week.  She is sad to see it go.  I had to send some photos in for a slide show they are putting together for the end of season banquet so I thought I'd put together this collage while I was at it.

Photographing Lines

Went to a Brewer game at Miller Park Saturday.  Surely I'm not the only one who takes photos of the windows and the roof!

My new favorite photo

Lighthouse Window8/7/10

Took this over the weekend when we were out checking out some lighthouses.  It's got a little bit of GREEN snuck in there!

Wisconsin Capitol

We visited the Wisconsin Capitol Building in Madison last weekend.  I found some green there too.....


They plant this star shaped flowerbed on the north lawn every year to honor those lost at war.

Going Green for August!

During the month of August I am participating in National Blog Posting Month's challenge.

The theme this month is GREEN so I'll be attempting to post a daily photo of something green on my blog.
While riding on the freeway today I was determined to get a photo of an exit sign.  I finally did after about 10 tries.  But what I had planned to do while editing wasn't turning out like I'd hoped so I changed it up a bit and went with neon green.

Flowers aren't usually a favorite subject of mine but since we have some sunflowers in the yard this year I decided to take a few.  The bees were just a bonus, I guess!

Minnesota Zoo

We went to the Minnesota Zoo on the 4th of July.  Thought I'd share a few pics. 

The dolphin wasn't the best SOOC but I really liked the texture of the wall and the marks on the dolphin itself.  So I played with it a bit and came up with this.  Kinda looks like denim.

I didn't take too many because there weren't all that many animals, but you can see the rest in my smug mug gallery.

Iheartfaces Week 25: "Celebrating Teens"

I haven't entered a photo at iheartfaces for quite some time.  But when I saw this weeks theme was Teens I decided it was about time to try again cuz I have one of those!!  Here she is....

This is one of my absolute favorite photos of her.  She hates having her photo taken. 
So it's great when she'll sit for me to get something like this.

Montly Photo Theme Challenge: New

Posting the challenge a little late this week...I've got too many things going on!  Anyway, we've decided to do things a little different and not necessarily post a photo every week for the theme.  We will still have a monthly theme and will post on Thursdays as time and available photos allow.  Feel free to join in at any time!

I was just in Tennessee for my cousin's (the groom) wedding so I thought a few wedding photos would be perfect for the "New" theme.  Not only are they beginning a new chapter in their lives, we got to welcome a new member to the family!

If you'd like join in the Monthly Photo Theme Challenge just grab our button and include it in your post containing photos representing the current monthly theme. The theme for May is "New". Then come back here and leave me a comment so I can check it out. And be sure to check out Amy at Snap To It to see if she played along this week too.  New photos for the theme will be posted on Thursdays.

Montly Photo Theme Challenge: OLD {week 5}

The past few weeks I've been looking all over for "old" items and all along we've had a few right at home to photograph.  These are items that belonged to my great grandmother and my grandmother.

An old iron.  This thing is heavy!  They must have really gotten a workout while ironing clothes.

And this is an old meat grinder my grandmother used to use.

If you'd like join in the Monthly Photo Theme Challenge just grab our button and include it in your post containing photos representing the current monthly theme. The theme for April is "OLD". Then come back here and add your link to the MckLinky below. New photos for the theme will be posted each Thursday of the month.
