This lens is going to be wonderful for catching my wild feathered friends who don't really like it when I get too close. Now I don't need to sneak up to them - I can catch them from a respectful distance - good for them, even better for me!
I have been playing with some photo editing programs, and if anything it has shown me what I really don't know about digital photography. I don't know much, I am finding - but I am learning!
I have been practicing with some night photography. My Manitoba Moose photo to the left is one I took of my neighbours big wire moose. I love this guy - I am trying to figure out how I can get him to walk across the lane, hop the hedge and live in my yard! Here is another shot I took of the moose several weeks ago while it was snowing.
Now that I have taken all the Christmas decorations down and put everything in the storage room, I decided to do a good clean upstairs in my attic studio. I did a bit of rearranging tidied up the work area, vaccumed the floor and opened some storage totes that have been sitting in the corner since we moved here.
What I discovered was several totes of doll/ baby/ little girl clothes. Remember those three or was it four huge boxes of clothes that I purchased from the doll lady some time ago? What was I thinking?
Well my new project for the immediate future is going to be sorting these clothes, ironing them, taking photographs and selling them online. This means re-opening my Etsy shop, which I have been meaning to do anyway, and also revamping my Erndales Facebook Page. There are close to a hundred items - all vintage - that I am just storing with no intent on ever using them, so off they shall go.
That ought to keep me busy for the next few months!
But for the moment - I am off to watch my recorded episode of the first show of this last season of Downtown Abbey...
