:: Cows, Chickens, Camera- Check ::

Playing with the new camera... 


Since getting it... I've been taking lots of picture, as you can imagine. 


I found the manual online ...and have read up on it whenever I get a second. 
Like a good little student. 



I have found lots and lots of willing....and some not so willing photo subjects. 


I'm enjoying it... :)   

In the old days I would have ROLLS of FILM  waiting to be taken and developed...wait, I STILL have some of those in a brown paper sack ...some.where. 


Now?  I'm using an 8G card  with the OPTION to ERASE after viewing my experimental photos... oh  yes, this camera has an delete function... but the manual calls it ERASE. I almost didn't find it.  I forgot to look for the icon of the little trash can! 


So rest assured... I'll be taking lots and lots and lots of pictures. I won't make you sit through and look at each and every one though... I know you're happy about that!  

So that you and I, both, can get on with blogging...and LIFE... I'm bringing back my NON-SEQUITUR photo feature.   (that's where I insert a random picture into a post...you know having nothin' to do with NOTHIN'...non-sequitur...MUCH LIKE MY BLOG!)

I know. 
Don't you just love it? 

I'm hoping for your sake...you're able to see a marked improvement in my photo skills, too. I don't know that my photo subjects will be much different from what you are accustomed to seeing here...but surely, the photo quality will be much better. 

Surely. 

I hope. 

We'll see. 


I think it is safe to say, that my favorite thing this week ...is this camera.

You are getting some great pictures. Have fun with your camera. I have a rather new one too, but have not taken time to learn it.
Thanks for stopping by Timeless Treasures and leaving a nice comment.
So good to get back to blogging.

Sweet photos! Looks like you're enjoying the new camera. I need a new camera too, my photo skills are sorely lacking. Visiting from A Favorite Thing.

Enjoy your new camera, Pat! I still haven't read the manual for the new one I got last Christmas! I'm sure there is a wealth of information there, but I can't spare the time. Don and I were just talking the other day about having to get film developed. I often didn't get around to it and ,like you, I have some rolls that were never developed!
Digital is SO much easier and convenient.

Thanks so much for joining in this week!

I love the result of you having a new camera, Pat. The cows are fabulous. I don't have any of those nearby so it's fun to see what you see!
