Been playin'

Started fiddling with my new camera having almost given up hope that it would take a decent shot. Ya know, sometimes it helps to read the instructions.
Just sayin'.

A bit of the mundane found on my desk, made purty-like.

A bar of my handmade soap with calendula petals in focus.

Some close-ups of a cluster of my anniversary roses in a tiny vase-like carafe-thing, of which I got three at goodwill (.50 ea!)




Playin' with the B&W setting.

In other news, these were taken with my old camera, but I simply HAD to show you....my daughter (center) just before performing 'Thriller' at half-time.  Aren't they hideous?  But they were totally awesome!
(click to enlarge...if ya dare)


Sorta resembles me a little *too* much when I get up in the morning.  Hmmmm.

Don't forget Make it for Monday....MckLinky revs up tomorrow evening at 6 pm EST.  I'll post highlights from this past week, plus I might actually have a decent project to share.  Besides pretty pictures from my new camera. You just never know.

Great Photos!! What kind of camera did you get again? I really need a new one!! One that is good at taking close up shots- sometimes digital cam's are terrible at those- my kodak was proof of that.
