Picture Post

There hasn’t been much baking, or new recipe experimenting, or new creating lately. Pretty much just creating the same things I was before, beer totes and cross stitch. I did see a chocolate almond butter cup recipe on Pinch of Yum that I intend to work on in the near future.

I’m still having a lot of fun with the fancy camera, so I thought I’d share some recent pictures. Still mostly automatic settings, but I’m watching video tutorials and maybe some of it is starting to sink in. Maybe.

Apologies to those of you on Instagram, as some of these are repeats.

Fargo humors me and doesn’t complain…too much.

Blooper.

Sometimes it’s nice to have boring, even though I’d rather have full nest boring than empty nest boring. Boring doesn’t lend itself to interesting blogging. I’ve got some things in mind over the next few weeks that should be more fun.

Playing with the Camera

For the past few evenings I’ve been taking the camera I borrowed from the eldest outside to play. I’m still using the automatic focus, but I’m trying to get a feel for the zoom and try some different things with composition before I attempt any manual settings. Here are a few of the fairly decent pictures I’ve taken.
