I have always loved taking pictures for as long as I can remember! I received a Minolta XG 1 SLR for my 16th birthday (more than a few years ago)... it was AWESOME! I had so much fun taking pictures... the worst part was waiting for the film to get developed! They didn't have one hour photo labs back then and I couldn't stand the wait! In todays digital age, I don't have to wait and I can see my image immediately... I LOVE it! It makes photography that much more exciting to me! I am a little rusty but I hope you will enjoy some of my favorites!
I love the bursts of color in this photo! You wouldn't even think it was the middle of winter!
I took this photo on a cloudy day right after the rain had stopped. The colors of the fungus were gorgeous! I went back the next day when the sun was shining to capture another shot and the fungus was all dried up and white. Glad I got this one when I did!

Had fun trying to get this shot! I was squatting on the edge of the pond and since I took several various shots of the waterfall my thighs were starting to cramp. Getting up was difficult! Made me realize I am no longer in my teens & twenties! The things you don't even think about at that age!!! I'm just thankful that I took this image BEFORE I decided to pressure wash the house yesterday...
This pump caught my eye as I was meandering around the property yesterday taking pictures. It's a decorative piece in my garden. My husband bought it at a flea market with the intention of hooking it up (or whatever it is you do with it!) if we ever dug a new well. Needless to say, that hasn't happened yet, soooo.... I'm putting it to good use!
I hope you enjoyed my first post and a few of my first pictures! I'm looking forward to improving my photos and this blog so any and all comments would be welcomed!
