I am a little surprised and disappointed that there is not more activity on this site. I remember a number of years back when we had to be advised not to post more than a couple times a week because people didn't have the time to read all the posts. In those days you could spend all day on the site and not get bored. I see people visiting...you are welcome to sign up and join. I have learned so much through the help of people on the site and you will also.
I am still haunting the gardens... zinnia junior
Here is a lighter version of the cone flower from the other day......... flower red
Enjoy this day!
Trying to relearn the manual setting
As part of his job my husband teaches classes in how to use your camera. I finally asked him for some help last weekend because I was having trouble remembering how to use the manual mode. It has been a bit frustrating this week because weather has been rainy and overcast - not nice to be out in the garden. I cut a flower one day and took it in and worked with it and I used my house plants - african violets. Here are a few samples of what I got: tiny violet growing pretty
One of the summer flower 's for all to enjoy ..
Enjoy this day you have been blessed with..
Hey guys! Been a while since I've posted...sorry! My family and I just moved across the country, from GA to Vegas, We went from hot to hotter...gotta love the military. Nellis AFB
There was a big fire in the mountains when we got here. Got this photo of the smoke over the mountain. Mt Charleston Fire
Anyhow, I've got more photos to share! Stay tuned.
i caught this pair of signs at the entrance to my in-laws property. they share a common driveway with the wicked ol' witch across the road and she can't stand the fact that they have more fun than she does.
Just one tonight - I worked on composition and color as well as my macro shot. Little purple
woke up with some extra energy today, so, i thought i'd try to post something. i've not been feeling too well lately. i woke up one morning with my blood pressure @205/110. not good. any way looooong story short. it's "under control". whatever that means....
anyway, i managed to make it out to the garden and caught this busy bee attending to my sunflowers. nice to know life goes on and i'm just glad to be able to catch it happening again.
Been too long
Woke up this morning with Photographica on my mind. I was last here in Feb. 2012. Kind of embarrassing but life gets in the way. I miss this place and saw Surfer guys post about no one being here. I have only been a member since 2006 but still feel like I had been a member for a long time. Anyway, here is some miscellaneous stuff that I have done lately. Thanks for looking if anybody shows up.
Garden haunting again
I have a different camera and a new tripod so I try to go out for a little while each day to practice taking shots.
This is my favorite from today. orange lily
Gosh, did not realize the site was back up--I had tried for nearly 3 wks and it did not come up.....A couple of weeks ago took my mom to Jekyll Island and really tried to get some sunset 's --here is one of them..
Have a great evening...
Turning shots into posters
One of the things I have done in the past when I was teaching is to make some of my shots into posters. I have been trying to do some of that again to help out my friends. When I am editing shots to use as posters or just as photos to print, I am not afraid of cropping in close. I often duplicate a shot and then tryout several different ways of cropping it.

Enjoy and have a wonderful day... Jo v.V.
