New Camera!!

So, I realized my camera was 5 yrs old.  Nothing wrong with it, just “outdated”.  Thought it might be time for an upgrade so I started looking….and yesterday I got the Nikon D7100!

Here are the first few pics taken with the new camera.  I had to use it before my daughter uses it at the game tonight!

Sunburn to Frostbite??

Well, it was a crazy weekend here near Buffalo, NY!  On Friday, April 20th we had almost 80° weather.  I was out in shorts and a tshirt and got some sunburn on my legs and arms.  It was my team’s first softball practice and at 6pm it was still 70°!  Hard to believe the news was calling for snow at the beginning of the week!

Sunday was not so nice.  It was my older daughter’s first softball practice.  It was 39° and breezy = COLD!!  Oh, and the sporatic drizzle didn’t help!   The weathermen were calling for even colder weather and 5-9” of snow by Tuesday!

And, of course, it didn’t pan out.  I don’t know how many times the weathermen called for significant snow this winter and we were way below average!  Well, we got a little slush…a total of .8 of an inch that melted by lunchtime.

My poor flowers didn’t like the icy slush!  Glad to say it’s going to be sunny for several days…now if it would just warm up again!

Black and White and Color

I belong to a very active ATC group – ATC FUN.  And through this group I’ve “met” (online but not in person) LOTS of creative ladies and love following their blogs.  One talented lady, Raeven, had posted a few black and white images that she added color to (check out her blog here) and I thought it was a great idea! So….I selected several of my favorite photos that I’ve taken over the past couple years, converted them to black and white and printed them.  I added some selective color with pastels and here are a few of my favorites:

Dew on a Petal
