Experimenting with my camera

There haven’t been many great photo opportunities lately, so I’ve been experimenting with what I can capture on my camera a bit, as well as with editing photos with GIMP.

rainy mirror

It was rainy and there wasn't a lot to photograph, so I decided to see how it would look if I took a photo out my rainy car window. I though the effect was cool, I just wish it was a more interesting subject.

fan

I discovered that the shutter speed in sport mode is indeed quite fast, as it captured this fan running on high without any blur.

keyboard

This keyboard is in need of a cleaning.

bread

I thought I hadn't succeeded in capturing the steam, until I looked at the photo on a computer.

clouds

At least the clouds Wednesday were pretty.

bananas

Giraffe bananas!

only flower in color

I'm enjoying playing with the color filters right now, I love the effect.

Flowers and Clouds and Candles, oh my!

Yep, I’m still playing around with my newfound love of macro shots. I’ve got a few clouds to throw into the mix this time, though.

I loved the way the edges blurred on this, but the center stayed in focus.

pink flowers

These gorgeous pink flowers are growing between my driveway and my neighbor's.

This little guy flew in as I was taking photo of the yellow flowers, I love that the yellow on him matches the flower.

My mom is growing this fuzzy-leafed plan in our backyard.

More neat leaves from the backyard garden

At least we have one good cucumber...

yellow flower

This poor flower was all alone when I photographed it, but it's got some buddies by now.

yellow rose

My grandfather always called my grandmother his yellow Irish rose.

anvil cloud

The clear blue skies everywhere else made this perfect anvil cloud that much more dramatic.

This is how the anvil cloud started.

My new zoom can even capture the moon during the day!

Sometimes it seems like I'm tied to this thing...
