Playdate with my new camera

Today was so beautiful I decided to go outside and snap a few pictures with my new camera.  I did not get many as I got sidetracked quickly....what else is new?
I did manage to get my son Alex in a great mood today and he was a willing participant, not for long though!
Not bragging or anything, but the texting hotline for my son is ridiculous with the girls! He looks so serious!

THis picture I stood in front of my house, it is a shot all the way down the end of the block

This is some of the neighbors landscape, I like this bush or plant or whatever you call it.

My Jack after a very long day at the skate park..just kinda zoning.

Some are happy, some are sad!

THis is way deep into the woods, look at the branches, and see the cool squirrel's nest?
And oh me oh my look what us South Carolinians woke up to this morning! It is absolutely beautiful!

Every kid must eat snow at least once! I told Jack I sure hope there was no doggie pee pee on it....

I  hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas.  Hard to believe all the hustle and bustle and baking and wrapping is all gone now.  Have a wonderful day all, I can tell you we will for sure!
For those of you who have asked me what kind of camera Mike bought me:
It is The Panasonic LUMIX
Fz35 18X Optical zoom.

My husband researches things to death before he make a purchase.  For the money and all the outstanding reviews, I can see why he chose this camera for me.  I love it, and have a lot to learn, but so far it has been  a  great camera to work with. Without the MEGA pricetag, it has all the bells and whistles I can want before leaping into a really expensive one.

Debbie- Well, your pictures are great but your sons are absolutely beautiful (and I KNOW THEY don't want to hear that)! Your oldest son is a heartbreaker for sure...and the little one? Following right in the footsteps...cuz he is gorgeous too.

Glad you had a snowy Christmas-you must have felt like you woke up in a fairy-tale! GREAT PHOTOS- I need to look at getting a better camera one of these days...of course in my case, it is not so much the CAMERA as it is the OPERATOR!

Hugs- Happy Holiday! Diana

All those shots were taken within 48 hours or a bit more? What a weather change!

Great shots. Have fun playing with your new tool/toy. (Work should be fun.)

Here in northern WI snow was predicted but has passed me over.
We had enough last week to satisfy me for a while. Stay safe.

Hi Debbie Dear! Oh, what a handsome son you have. No wonder the girls are loving him! :) Love his curly hair, too. So glad you're loving your new camera! Your snaps look great! I wanted a new camera, but since we did a little remodeling this year, I hated to ask again. :(
You got some snow!! Hope your Christmas was wonderful. Blessings for the new year!!

Fabulous photos Debbie! I love that you got a picture of the snow. I thought about it but honestly it was too cold outside for me! So I enjoyed the snow from the warmth of my house. Now sitting here at 9 at night it's almost gone :(

I can't wait to see more of your great photography!

Nice pics...jealous, I am of your new camera! What wonderful photos! Question--the first one of your son--is that a camera sepia effect or is that photo editing software? I've just never seen such a great digitally processed sepia before.

Merry Christmas! I love all the decor! That blue tablecloth is fun...I just watched the German Week episode of Are You Being Served, so it made me giggle thinking of that! So glad I stopped by!

Oh girl you are going to love that! I cannot wait to see more of your interesting shots. These photos really look great! I would love a new camera someday, but I need to learn more basics about photography first. I bet you guys did get quite a bit more snow then we did, up there. I hope you are staying warm and enjoying it!

You are going to have a TON of fun with the new camera~I have one on my wishlist, but don't think I'll see one for awhile, lol.
Oh that bush (pamapas grass, or saw grass) is very lovely to look at, but don't stick your hand in it~ their stalks HURT!

Well you're doing great with yours. I got one too but I haven't had time to read the 69-page user manual and I know I'm not adjusting properly. So you make me feel better. At least someone is! Happy New Year. Jane

Much better photos Deb! Especially without all the extra editing to them. Less is more!

I have a Lumix too... although I had gotten it three years ago - May be time to update it this year. For the past year, just been shooting with my cell phone...

Best wishes to you and your family for all good things to come your way for the upcoming NEW year!!
