Just playing around

After spending numerous hours (and getting advice from my personal blogging photographers), I finally decided to just plug the Canon into the IMAC and see what happened.  It worked just like the old camera.

Day of Joy

Well hello dolly!  
Kokeshi dolly, that is

Lace Cap Hydrangea turning color and spilling over the porch railing.

An unusual tuberous geranium that has bloomed all summer.

A standard (?) hydrangea that dries itself.

Thanks to all of you who have helped me.  I'll be back with more questions for sure.  


  1. you did just waht i did, love the photo of the photo, and the doll. there is nothing in my house that has not been "shot" over and over again. that is how i got the Madsnapper handle from hubby, i snapped any and all. the self drying hydrangea is my favorite because of the details when i enlarged it, all crystal clear. keep snapping and have fun and congrats on your first safe and sound download. glad it worked out to be so simple.
    the word verification has me laughing it said ovennut

  2. The photo of the hydrangea is lovely as its color. Dried hydrangeas indoors have always been my favourite indoor plant. ;)

  3. Well, my dear, you are definitely one up on me (perhaps more!!). I don't even own a camera. I haven't yet evolved from the 35 mm age, so I don't take photos anymore. Any photos on my blog are from my kids' cameras...and they upload them for me. I have finally learned how to get them from the computer onto the blog, but I wouldn't have a clue how to get onto the computer. Perhaps one day I'll get with the times and learn the art of digital photography, but for right now, I am hopelessly digitally challenged.

    Hope you're having a lovely day,

  4. Looks like you are doing fine.
    The pictures looks great.


  5. Hey, great pics! I'm glad you're having a good time and learning new tricks!!! Wait till it snows! You'll be out in the middle of the night, snapping away.

  6. Glad to see you're having a great time with that new camera!

  7. Too cool!! Great pictures, and they will keep getting better! Isn't it exciting?? Who are the happy couple?

  8. Nice pics. New cameras are fun...and frustrating all in one. But it still is fun trying new things. Good job.

  9. Fun huh?!! I love how user friendly the macs are with all the different cameras. I have a Nikon D90, and my husband has a Sony point and shoot, and all you have to do is plug it in and turn on the camera! Love it. My PC is a NIGHTMARE.

    Have lost of fun :)

  10. Hi Bonnie, I love these photos! I was so happy to see your kokeshi doll. When I was a little girl I used to have a collection of them. I saw some at a yard sale recently but they were asking for too much money for them. I reluctantly passed.

    The weekend's coming!

  11. Beautiful snap shots...your new camera looks great! I hope that you continue to find beautiful things to share with us...I look forward to both your writing and your photographs!

  12. Enjoy that new camera! Your shots are great. Carla

  13.'s nice to see how your challenging yourself and succeeding.
    I personally am not looking forward to my very old dinosaur digital to go on the fritz because I quite frankly don't need one more thing I to learn on the tech side of things.
    It seems that everyday, I'm reading about learning something or other...I'd love to give my brain a tiny break ;)

    Your photos so far have turned out lovely...keep it up ;o)

    Ciao for now,

  14. Your last photo has such wonderful clarity. I love the flower but your picture lets me know why. Have a great weekend. Blessings...Mary

  15. Very nice, Bonnie!!!

    Wishing you a very lovely weekend,

  16. Congratulations on figuring things out! i always say these technological challenges are so much more interesting than crossword puzzles and therefore just think of the exercise your brain has been getting lately. Sunshine Always

  17. Glad you are having fun with your new camera. Your flowers in this post are beautiful. The son in my last post got married this month last year (although we just took these photos), and my youngest son got married this month of this year. Five kids, now all married..WoHoooo!!!

  18. Your little Kodeshi doll reminds me of those cute new perfumes I have seen:)

  19. Geat picktures, I see you are having fun with your new camera!

  20. What beautiful photos you shared with us; clear and perfect; thank you. You are a gret photographer!

  21. Have fun with your new camera. I'm still learning after 12 months...slow learner, thats me.


I always enjoy hearing from you, my blogging friends.
