Raining out…mostly

As today is going to be half wet and half icky I decided to grab my camera, dash out to the front stairs and take a few photos of the rain on the various flowers. Course I hadnt realized I hadn’t put the memory card in the camera. Thankfully with the usb cable I can grab them directly from the camera to my computer. So here are a few quick shots to enjoy…is that sirens I am hearing?

How about a different camera

Okay today I decided to dig out all the older cameras and see if they still work. One I finally realized we had the wrong type of memory card for. Once the card I ordered from ebay comes in I will take photos and toss them up for the world to see.

Instead I added good rechargeable batteries to my hubby’s old Olympus x-21, slid in a micro sd card into the special adapter and stepped out into the sunshine. Now these photos are not amazing but hey they are cool since a bee was buzzing around the deadly nightshade on the fence in the back


Is it sunny or cloudy today?

There is sun streaming through the sliding door but when you really look out you can see the clouds and there are some that are gray. Does it mean it will rain? Maybe but as I am on my own most of the day it wont stop me much.

And to follow up

Yesterday I posted up the two photos my daughter took for me of the new flowers a neighbor had planted. Today I am posting up the photos I took with my trusty camera. She obviously didn’t see the pretty roses or some of the others but then she wanted to catch up with mom and dad who were walking down to Wendy’s for a Frosty. Go figure right? These lovely blossoms are what makes this part of the complex I live in really nice to look at.

A couple of quick snaps from the evening before

We went out for a quick Frosty dessert from Wendy’s last night and on the walk over I had the kid snap some photos of new flowers I spotted. Well she only took two images but they are pretty. Tomorrow i will post up the ones I snapped this morning.

Its Saturday again! Yippee

While the humidity is here to stay I will admit that summer is the best time for photos in Ontario. There are all kinds of flowers, both garden and wild, blooming all over. Because this summer is the 150th anniversary of Canada there does seem to be a lot of red and white all over.  Many of the neighbors in this complex have actually tried to spiff up with red and white flowers, which can be tough.

I admit we don’t have flowers out front, but that is mostly due to the landscapers who love to weed wack everything I put out there. My back patio no longer has the small sections that were earth filled since they dug up our back yard a wee back but that isn’t important here.

Around the complex I have taken and posted many photos but when I was out with my daughter we took photos over by the local pharmacy. They are actually kinda cool. These three shots were done by my wonderful and talented fourteen year old daughter with that little LG phone camera. The blurry little white thing is one of the many mushrooms that are popping up all over thanks to the humidity and rain. The camera did not pick up the delicate shades of brown and purple that threaded this tiny long stemmed mushroom. The red is actually a not yet open flower but of course the best is the delicate white/lavender bloom that she caught with the pharmacy in the background.

Humid is Us

Yup it is humid still…sorta expected but the daughter made me go out with her today. She bought me lunch and we took photos on our walk. Took with the camera on the phone so give us a break okay?

Some days I just want to take photos of my cat

When it is rainy, muggy and all around not fun I sit in my living room and look at my gorgeous cat and decide to take photos. Now like every cat on the planet she makes it difficult to actually get good photos. She will star at us and then as soon as I get ready to snap the photo she turns her head or runs out of the frame. So here are some of the best ones I have done.

Summer cold day four?

Yeah been fighting this thing for a while. Today I managed to get up and get showered and dressed but still not up to a nice walk for photos. So just going to have to post up some of the lovely stuff I have in my backlog. Enjoy and have a good day folks.

I hate summer colds

Yup it is that time of year when you arent sure if it is allergies or a cold. I do believe it is a cold. After all I don’t get the body temperature issues with allergies. So I sit in the dark and am glad I can stay inside and relax. These are not close ups like my usual photos but they are from the same walk that I took on Saturday.  I plan on doing some editing on the photos of the squirrel. It is hard to see but he was posing with a big nut in his mouth. It was like he was taunting me. I couldn’t get close enough with the camera phone but at least I got him right?
