Four Fotos For February (finally)

What with one thing and another, I have spent very little time with my new camera (received for Yule). The Canon Power Shot ELPH 300 HS (referred to from this day forward as "Elphie") has been patiently sitting on my desk wondering when the heck we were going to go out and play. So without further ado, I present my first photos ever from Elphie. (I am sure they will improve with time and practice)

First victim (I mean subject) Lexie-Girl
My wonderful new drum
Mushroom-shaped ice formation in our yard

This is as close to Wordless Wednesday as I can get. Looking forward to learning more about Elphie. Thanks for your patience as I "fiddle around" with photography.

Lexie says "oh no. Not a new camera."

I love.love. your drum. I have been hinting for one of these ....

I love photography. The Bard has this fancy schmancy camera that I took possession of, and I keep it in my purse which is now a tote bag. It's great to always have it in case a great photo op comes along.

Wasn't the moon beautiful last night? I was burning candles in my magic room and the moon was lighting up the whole room, which prompted me to start drumming!

Your new camera takes great pics, Robin! Especially the one of the Full Moon last night. We were not able to see Her here, it was way too cloudy!

Please give Lexie-girl a hug for me, will you. She is so cute!

Hugs,

Good photographs!
Lexi doesn't seem to like a close up photo, much like my Nova :-)
The night sky is just fantastic!

Have a great day!

Lucky girl - that drum is lovely! Lexi is a trooper - lol.

New cameras are tons of fun - good luck figuring out all the buttons!
