another mistake?

...or mistaken beauty? This was with my Sister-in-law's camera. I didn't realize that just because I pushed the button, does not necessarily mean it took the picture. So I moved the camera, only to see it flash as I did so. ...I kinda like it. [oh, setting in line waiting to get into the Rocky Ridge "light show" for Christmas. "are we there yet Uncle Brian?"]

I may post more pictures than anything. I'll be on Prednisone for 10 days. Hated it last time, so I may just let my photos do the talking for a while.

changing lenses

I've changed cameras... well, sorta.

This is the Nikon Coolpix 4500. [aka the old camera]

And this is my new one, the Coolpix L20. I went with this for several reasons.
#1. runs on AA's. So I don't have to bring a charger on vacation.
#2. it's a "point & shoot". So my fam. doesn't feel like it's from another planet. [I've got more to say on this, but these brief answers will do for now]
The first 2 pic's are from my new camera. Last Fri. I got out & "smelled the roses" as it were. Yeah, changed my blog. I'm re-thinking the title. ...actually I'm re-thinking whether or not I'm going to continue to blog at all. There are many reasons for my thoughts on this.

goodnight, enjoy the art before your eyes...

Snow storm pix

This is a close up of the little "snow islands" in the stream behind my house...
A shot of 1 of 3 bridges across the stream [took the first shot part way across this bridge]
I loved the multicolored "snow spots" created by the buried Christmas lights on Dad's bushes
Looking down the street I live on during "the thick of it".
I LOVE snow. I always have. I have to drive in it, play in it, & take photos of it. I am drawn to snow. Yesterday, New Years Eve, it snowed like someone shook York inside a snow globe. Big puffy flakes, parachuting down the wind to a random landing. Creating a fresh winter wonderland.
Happy New Year!
