With my new camera.

I may have fallen in love...again. I am quite enjoying it but this is from the first 10 minutes of owning it so please be patient with me.

It will take me weeks (when I say "weeks" we all know I really mean "months" right?) to figure out all the bells and whistles, of which I hope there are few, as I am so tekkie challenged it really is not funny (I am waiting for hockey daughter to come home from Calgary to change the cartridge of the copier/scanner thingamajiggy).

This is the fabric I will be using to make the curtains for the newly painted kitchen. Do you like it? It is a gorgeous flowery linen and I just lurve it.

More practice.

Is it just me or is green and blue just a heavenly mix sometimes?

Did I ever mention how much I love Greengate?

Now I am not sure if I duplicated any of these photos. If I did, please accept my apologies.

Aren't flowers just the thing?

The camera is a Nikon. That is what I finally chose after taking a good 45 minutes to figure out which camera had what. Although they all basically have the same stuff when it comes to the point and shoot variety. Thank you all for your suggestions they were helpful.

And a very Happy Mother's Day to those that celebrate it today.

Hiya, I would love to join the group but I have no cornishware! However, I will stop by to have a look at the photos. I love the colours other than the blue especially. I must say I felt a surge of jealousy when I saw your linen fabric! That is GORGEOUS!

I love your post! The photography is superb, great camera and the colour scheme is so beautiful. I have been behind with blogging of late for various reasons but am glad to have some spare time at last.
There is an award waiting for you on my blog!
Take care

Your camera takes some swish photos!

I have a nice DSLR (don't use it for blogging much though) and over a year into owning it I still can't remember what does what.

Enjoy playing!

Oh and here is the link to my new blog.
