Hi folks. Hope you are enjoying your day today. Those of you who are regular readers know my brother is visiting from Nova Scotia for a few days. He's down to see his kids and one is travelling back with him to stay for a few weeks. Then Scott is coming back again and hopefully bringing his gal, Donna who I adore. So we are enjoying our very quick visit and spending some time together.
The added bonus of Scott's visit is he has a Rebel camera. The one I covet actually. He doesn't have the macro lens but he does have the telephoto lens. So I have to admit I have hijacked his camera during his stay. I'd like to say I asked nicely and was sweet about it. But let's be honest, you know me now, I pretty much just snatched it and ran away with it. So yesterday Scott spent the day with his daughter as she had the day off work. So I had the camera for the day. It was mine, all mine. I may have had a Lord of the Rings moment and used the "my precious" line a few times. I may have been found stroking it fondly and whispering to it. But no one has any proof of that since I had the camera. No proof= no guilt!
So I had a blast. I mean I was switching lenses and snapping like a lunatic. You'd think I was professional photographer with my antics. I had the whole living rearranged to put the table by the window. This required moving everything and chasing my daughter downstairs. Apparently listening to country music while snapping drives teenagers away. So remember that next time you need some quiet time, works like a charm. I was getting pretty adventurous by the end of the day. Hubs had to help purely as he was worried I was going to kill myself. I may or may not have had two end tables stacked up with the tripod on top of them. And I may or may not have been standing on a chair that wasn't high enough so it's possible I may have tried to stand on the tables with the tripod. This is all pure speculation. Again no proof, no guilt!
So here is some of the adventures in photography a la lunatic. Some are good, some not so good. Hope you enjoy. I had a blast.
Photos missing due to a G+ incident. Restoring soon.
So I must say having a kick a** camera sure helps. I am playing with again today. Should be fun. I now have the rebel on my Christmas list. I'd buy one today if I could afford to honestly. But not in that position. So I will have to make due with mine once Scott leaves. For now I am having way too much fun.
That last shot is last night's impromptu "I don't know what to make, what do I have in the pantry" dinner. Was thrown together on a whim with what little was left before grocery day. Turned out fabulous. Will share the recipe later today. Need to get gorgeous first then take some pics. Priorities people. First comes a shower and makeup so you don't scare your house guests, then comes stealing your house guest's camera, then baking and cooking, then finally comes blogging about it all.
Toodles and smoochies. xx
