So I am really new to this whole camera with fancy lenses and stuff. Mr Murfin owns the fancy camera and I have always shunned it in favour of my little in-the-pocket-point-and-shoot one which is much lighter and easy to carry on holidays.
So far all of the pictures on the blog have been from my little camera,and are not too bad. But we have this heavy big SLR so I need to learn how to use it.
Mr Murfin tells me to read the manual…..you would think someone who likes to read as much as I do would have thought of that, maybe. But I get nothing from it, it is too wordy. I need to learn hands-on. So when there was finally 10 minutes of sun I trooped off to the back yard to find some suitable shots. The great thing about digital is you just keep clicking, so out of all of the shots I took, at least a few worked.
The high bush cranberries again. I love the colour, and they are about the only colour in the yard right now.
I wanted to get the ice in this one.
So those were the good ones. I also took a picture of the 2 “barns”
Not as good a shot but I love my 2 barns. The birds love that feeder too because if a couple of them (or the fat pigeon) sit on one side it tips and the seed spills out on the ground. Not stupid those birds. It also holds the suet blocks. I have to say I now have a strong opinion on the various merits of suet blocks. There’s a knowledge based I didn’t know I was lacking!
And then back inside where it is warm and more tropical.
