Could this be art? Exploring Panasonic #Lumix G5 Creative Filters

Dynamic Mono Lumix G5

Now that I’ve stepped into the world of the Panasonic Lumix G5, I am having a hard time putting it down. I am continuously amazed at how beautiful the shots from this camera can be. And, I know that in the hands of someone more capable than I, there would be some truly gorgeous works […]

A mess of photos from my first days with the Panasonic #Lumix G5

meinamirror

A new toy showed up at my door this week! A toy that makes a geek, such as myself, run around doing the happy dance all over the kitchen! The Panasonic Lumix G5 is a Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) camera and my very first step away from the point and shoot. I have no idea […]

{almost} Wordless Wednesday – Autumn Phone Photography #FallInPA #VZWSM

autumn backyard

I wish my backyard would stay the way it is right now… all winter long. It is gorgeous! The Autumn colors are bright and cheery and the sky is all moody greys and soft blues mixed together. Autumn is my favorite season! Before the sun was all the way up, I took a little walk with […]

A visit to The Pioneer Gas & Steam Engine Society

pioneer steam and gas engine society

Last Saturday morning we ventured out to visit a local attraction. Well, kind of local, when you live in rural PA, anything within an hour’s drive is considered a local attraction! I’ve driven past the sign for The Pioneer Steam & Gas Engine Society many times over the years without giving it much thought. When […]

The rescue of a big green Frog

big green frog

Thirty Seven. That’s how many pictures I found on my camera today. Thirty seven pictures of…. A Frog. We found this giant frog in the yard yesterday. He must have been on the move because of the heavy rain we had recently. Unbeknownst to him, our yard is not the safest place in the world […]

Have you ever been to a chicken yard sale?

Or maybe a better question would be, Are you sick of hearing about chickens yet? Sorry, can’t help it. I’m convinced every family should own a chicken… or 30. They are funny creatures, they lay eggs, they cluck, what’s not to love? {okay, they do occasionally get into things they shouldn’t, don’t let it deter […]

Clouds of May 26th

May 26 2011 6:43pm

While I was a little bit too freaked out and panicking to even think about photos before the storm, here are just a few of the awesome clouds that lingered and floated past from 5 – 7 pm yesterday. Wow! I don’t know if I’ve seen clouds like these, so huge and simply stunning.  

Wordless Wednesday – The Elusive Teenager!

my son

Even my loyal blog readers may not realize that we do actually have a teenager in the house. I took a moment to snap some photos last week when there was a rare teen sighting, and an outside one no less! These sightings are far and few between as said teen is usually holed up […]

What The Rain Does – {almost} Wordless Wednesday

Daffodils Pie

It’s been quite wet around here lately. The ground slurps and gurgles when you walk across the grass and we’re starting to feel like we’re growing gills. Last night the rain took part of the road with it when it washed out the culvert pipe. We woke to a firetruck and a tow truck outside […]

Super Genius – Look What I found Honey #2

old red tractor on road

Guess what’s parked in my front yard now? Oh you thought I was going to say driveway? No, the driveway seems to be full. Full of job trailers, vehicles, motorcycles, etc. Super G. came home with a tractor the other day, WAIT! I mean Super G. came home with THREE large tractors the other day. […]

Full Moon last night was beautiful

Perigee Moon March 2011

Well, I sure won’t win any awards for these photos but I’m happy with them. This new camera of mine is still a mystery to me and I’m almost regretting getting one that I can play with. The Nikon P100 I recently bought does have some nice features that I am just not good at […]
