Samples from the (Very Awaited) New Camera

Last week on Wednesday after one of my chiropractor appointments hubby and I popped over to a sale on the camera I have been eyeing for about a year now. It went on a good enough sale that my craft money was able to cover it. I was such a happy girl. It not only was on sale but I got the last one in the store, talk about close! Too close for comfort. I really haven't had much of a chance to play with it because of my frozen shoulder but I try here and there. These are some pics of my first day playing around. Hopefully it will get better with time. Also now after reading the booklets they sent in the box I am going to save up my craft money for a extra flash and zoom lens, all in time.

Going down a main strip of town.

Here is the BIG lake that makes me not miss the ocean soooo much, it is quite

The barn on our neighbors land that we see from our driveway. I just love this old barn. The land use to be owned by one family but had been subdivided so the barn is on the other property now.

Here is our new kitty Aslan. We adopted him a couple of months ago and he is one of the sweetest kitties. I have never seen a cat need more affection than him and we all are okay with that.

Here is the mountain range to the south of us. I don't know how many know but we are surrounded by mountains on every side and I will work at showing them more this year. I am mesmerized how beautiful they are. I can never grow tired at their beauty.

I am healing very slowly and I am so very thankful that my shoulder is still moving and not totally frozen. For some reason it is easier to knead bread than it is for me to be on the computer. I will pop in when I can and will have to really pace myself.


  1. Beautiful pics!!!! Love the sweet kitty one!! I hope you are on the complete mend very soon!!!

  2. What a gift! Truly a blessing :) Now you have a very good camera and no more excuses for sharing all those delicious recipes you have been tempting me with when we talk ;D

    Praying for full recovery sweet Mary!

    love you,


  3. Love the pics and Aslan is a good-looking kitty.

    What kind of camera did you get??????

    1. I got a EOS Cannon Rebel T3 with a EF-S 18-55 IS II kit. I hope that all made sense. [o= I am just learning and I don't know what all those things mean but my DIL told me it is a very good SLR camera. I have so much to learn this year!

  4. Congratulations on the new camera! Yay! That means we get to "see" lots more from your beautiful corner of the world. Still praying for your healing....

  5. What a wonderful new toy! I love your photos. My favorite one of all is the top of the old barn. That's the kind of thing that I love deep in my soul.

    I'm glad you're on the mend, even if it is slowly. I'm not surprised about the computer hurting more than even kneading dough. It's like that with my fibro sometimes, too.

    Here's a one shoulder hug ))))))

  6. Aslan is soooo cute and your scenery is stunning. What a blessing to have such a view! Praying for continued healing for your shoulder, Mary. Hang in there and take it one day at a time. :)

    Blessings! ~Lisa

  7. So glad you finally got your phone. You have such a beautiful area to photograph. We still have no snow, but I do need to get out more and take some photos of our area, snow or no snow. :)

  8. I have an older Canon Rebel, Mary. Mine only has 8 megapixels and that was top of the line back then, LOL. It's a good camera. Over on Pinterest, look under my Photo Ops and find the tutorials....I think it was called "31 Days to Better Photos" or something. It is a good place to start. Have fun learning! You'll be spending a bit of time with your camera manual while you learn how to do all kinds of things. I hope your shoulder frees up quickly.

  9. Beautiful scenery, Mary. And a very cute kitty. :) Continuing to pray for your healing!
    ((Hugs)) and blessings,

  10. {{{waving hi}}}} I'm stopping by with a quick repetitive hello. I've had so many people on my heart but just couldn't visit blogs while visiting my grandmother in the hospital. I'm finally home and trying to make the rounds quickly and prepare for another possible trip to be back with her soon. I've read all the posts on my reader!

    Enjoy your new camera :)

    Have a wonderful weekend, Tamara

  11. Praying for healing, Mary! Your mountains always bring me joy when I see them, thanks for sharing! Yay that you got your camera! yay yay yay!!!


  12. So sorry that your shoulder is still giving you grief! I'll continue to pray for you.

    It looks like you've gone professional with your pictures. I love a good camera. I have to admit that I've had mine for over a year now and I still haven't read up on it. It just takes such nice pictures on auto that I'm lazy... I really do need to read up on all that it can do!!

    Blessings, Debbie

  13. How beautiful to see your world...enjoy that camera...and I now miss our cat! The mountains...oh my!! I need to slow down and not just point and shot...maybe one day I will work on composing better pictures

  14. Your world is so beautiful! Thanks for sharing. The kitty is precious

  15. Beautiful, beautiful! Someday I will see the west.



Thank you, each sweet comment brightens my day. Blessings!
