Backyard Beauty

Thank you so much for all the sweet comments on my last post! I honestly wasn't expecting any, but I had just had to share those beautiful photos of my Meggie! And Blair, you were right! While I'd still really LOVE an SLR, these were taken with my poor little point-and-shoot. I'd done nothing but bad talk it at every photo taking opportunity, cursing it's poor picture quality, ruing the day in December that I'd bought it as a cheap replacement for my previous camera, which had finally succumbed to one too many falls at the hands of certain little people who live here. ;)

The indoor picture taking capabilities of my current camera are just absolutely horrid. Awful! No matter what settings I use I get blurry, grainy, washed out disappointments. But a few weeks ago, having finally started taking outdoor photos again on a regular basis, I was delighted to discover that under proper conditions, this loathsome little lens is actually quite capable of capturing perfectly lovely pictures! It was such an "ah-ha!" moment of discovery when I finally realized it that I laughed out loud! There's just no stopping me now. I'm just so happy when I'm out there snapping photos!

Here are just a few of my favorites from the many dozens I took tonight. :)
