Antique Week in Review....


If you're new to my blog, or somehow missed the news,
I spent a week towards the end of March
in Warrenton/Round Top, Texas documenting the phenomenal Antique Week.
I was there as a seller, but as an observer as well.

I had literally hundreds of images to pore through,
and still have many left to go.
Here's the best of what's left.
Enjoy!

with this lovely beeswax collage she made!







and pretty maids all in a row


Have a beautiful Wednesday!

A Whole New World



Faithful friend, you have served me well....







You opened up a whole new world to me








You've taken me places I've never been












And shown me things I've never seen










You've helped me see old things in a new light








And you've opened up a world of possibilities to me.

Thank you, my trusty Canon Power Shot A1100 IS!
All the shots you've seen in this post were taken
with my Canon point and shoot,
aided and abetted by photo editing courtesy of yours truly.

Since my POST from two days ago asking for camera advice,
I've narrowed it down to two choices...

The previously mentioned Nikon D5000 and now the Canon Rebel XSi.

I never knew when I started blogging almost 9 months ago
that I would fall in love with photography to the extent that I have.
I knew that I loved writing more than life itself,
but this whole new, beautiful world as viewed through the lens
has been a huge, unexpected, glorious surprise to me.



I love what I see through the viewfinder,
and can't wait to take it to the next level.

Thanks for looking!
Happy Tuesday!

I've Got You In My Sights, Buddy...


Oh yes, Mr. Nikon D5000, you will be mine.



So....
All you shutterbugs out there...

Will a DSLR be that much better 
than my Canon Digital Point & Shoot?

What camera do you use?

Thanks!
