Due to time constraints today, I really don’t have the time to sit down and read about my new macro lens. But, I just HAD to get my hands on that baby and see what I could do just “winging it”. Keep in mind, these are “rough” and have only one point of focus, which … Continue reading Macro Beginnings
I need to make a correction in what I stated in my last post. There was ONLY a state of emergency in Erie County, NOT in the entire state of New York. My apologies for the misinformation. Now as for today. I was pleasantly surprised when I did step outside for it was a balmy … Continue reading Digging Out
Well, I made it! I actually trekked over to the barn this morning to leave warm food. I saw that our neighbor had already filled the dry food dishes, and in so doing, I sighed relief. Also!!! The blankets that were put at the threshold of each huge sliding door, front and back, are keeping … Continue reading Day 2 of the Arctic Blast

Well, it seems, Morris the cat, snuck into my house, (now how he did this is totally beyond me) and put in my stocking hung with care on my fireplace mantle, another award.

Granted the first set of photos were nothing to write home about. I did that deliberately to show you how fast and how furious this storm got. What should have taken 20 minutes to get home, took us well over one hour. Now you will see some drama. I guarantee. When we arrived home, a … Continue reading Snow Storm Part 2

No double gloves. I was just SO excited to get some shots of Christmas lights, I didn’t … Continue reading Getting into the Spirit….HO HO HO!
