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 knew you were talking about a camera! I too have fallen in love... with my camera. I bought myself a used Rebel xti last year and I'm very happy with the pictures it produces. I think its all about the lenses.

Is that your Siberian Husky? I have one, too! Her name is Banshee Wayne. Aren't they the sweetest animals? I love mine dearly.

happy shopping! I can't wait to see what you get!

Hi Anne. I just woke up hungry and sat at the computer for a late night snack. I'm so glad I did because I've haven't been by in a while. You're a wonderfully talented photographer. You are an artist in every way. You have a wonderful minds eye whether your crafting, decorating, writing or photographing. Thanks for giving me such beautiful images to fall asleep with.

Hugs and Happiness....Tracy :)

Hi Anne,

I love all your wonderful photos and glad that you are enjoying your trusty Cannon.
Since I started blogging, I see everything in a different light too and there is so much beauty out there.
Thanks for all you share.

Susan said...

Beautiful pictures!! Hubby has a Cannon Elon ( big sicker, non digital...but loves it and it takes gorgeous pictures...he needs a class about lens use though...since he bought the next size lens up, he wants to use it all the time, and I keep telling him he can't, it is for more far away things or for images that you want to blur out certain things to just focus on one. He's still learning...but hey what do I know I use a kodak easy share digi...but it also takes great shots.


Theresa said...

Great pictures dear Anne! Love my camera too! Can't wait to see what you decide to buy. Enjoy your day my friend:) HUGS!

Carrie Ann Eddleman said...

Great photos. Nothing could be more true than how the world changes when viewed through the lens of a camera. Good luck in deciding which one to buy. My first major camera was a canon rebel slr, now I have 3 nikons, not sure why the switch, but they are all was the canon.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Take Care, Carrie

I adore my Rebel! I've never learned all the functions on it, but its got such a good lens that I am happy with the automatic features.

I feel the same way - Photography has become such a passion for me since I started blogging. I, too, had a little Canon and then moved up to a better camera. Isn't it fun?

Loving all of the photos, no matter which one you pick, with your eye behind the lens you can't go wrong! I really never gave taking pictures as much thought as I do now... another plus for blogging! Theresa

Hi Anne,
Your photos are so beautiful and I know what you mean about photograhpy and blogging. They go hand in hand. I too, love taking photos now, more than ever.


Beth A. @ Songbird Hill said...

Hi Anne! I love the photos. Since I have started blogging I have paid more attention to architectural details than in the past. Isn't that weird or what? I was blessed to get an early Mother's Day present from my boys last Saturday, a Kodak Easy Share M550. I'm loving it! They felt sorry for me because my other camera was so old that my computer wouldn't even pull the pictures off anymore with XP! Thanks for the comments you leave on my blog. Have a good week and keep posting those great pics!

north pal said...

just finished viewing the photos and as i was digesting all of them, i was thinking, how do these bloggers do all this? have a full time job, set up all these thoughts in a photo for all of us? such talent and artistic ability. Wonderful! could i just mention someone that i have known for years through her business. Elaine at has a wonderful fairy like hand made gifts. and she has a brand new blog out there that could be checked out. check it out and you will see how she runs her life. it is at-choo.blogspot and her catalog is at you will enjoy! thank you, Bestest,Denise

Diane said...

Hi! I have wanted to comment for awhile, so I thought I would this I too am in Texas~Katy to be exact, and a kind of new friend of Theresa's =) I wish I would have visited you at the festival, but I am sure I will in the fall.
I too am a lover of photography, and use a Nikon P80 which I love dearly =)
Come visit when you can~

June said...

What a sweet tribute to a beloved friend Anne. I know we all feel that our cameras are truly our friends. I can't wait for the new pics we will be treated with here.

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

I've found photography to be one of the most FUN parts of blogging, too, Anne! I want to learn more!

Gypsy Fish said...

Hi Anne: I'm right there with ya on falling in love with photography.....who knew? Love my Canon too!! Your photos are "magnifique"!

Privet and Holly said...

Anne ~ To think it was our dear Sasha that lead me to your blog....I just love it: your words, your's all lovely. Thank you so much for the kind comments that you left on my last post. I wrote it to give comfort to my dad and daughter, but it has been the extraordinary words of other bloggers that have brought the most solace to them. I wish I could give you advice on cameras, but I am taking baby steps in that department....and loving an outlet for the beauty that I want to capture, beyond words. My husband gave me a Sony DSLR for my b-day and so far, I really like it. xx P&H
