I have just uploaded 4 photos and blogger has put them all above the text - it is being very contrary today, I do wish they wouldn't keep changing the way it works.
I was experimenting with macro and zoom photos - I love both on this camera. The first photo is of the lovely Cape York Lilies in the Botanic Gardens. I was very worried till I came home and checked that mine are still growing. I had dug them up a couple of months ago by mistake as I had completely forgotten they were there. I replanted them immediately, and sure enough, I have spikes appearing. I am sure mine usually flower after Christmas so I have no idea why these ones are in flower now - mine came from the Gardens. The yellow flower is such a glorious yellow and the leaves are a very dense, very dark green to make a huge contrast. It is a Golden Guinea tree.
The next two photos were using the zoom, the first one about half way and the next one almost full. they are incredibly sharp. Now of course I need to study the manual - at least I have a paper one as well as the CD - and take lots and lots of photos to learn how to make the best use of the camera.
Our oldest son turns 42 today - where have the years gone - so I shall take some night shots when we go out there for dinner. We were going to have a BBQ but the weather is horrid, blowing hard with gusts to 35 knots, and the occasional shower, so I suspect Nikki is having a rethink.
I think the painters will be finished in two days, that will be wonderful after three weeks! We have moved the furniture back into the main rooms, but only a few books back onto the shelves so far. All the crystal and china is still in boxes, too hard to get to while we don't have much access to the kitchen. I will get done in time.
Thank goodness for Penny's comment on Doreen's blog - I have managed to get rid of that slideshow, much nicer just being able to clidk on the photos and have them enlarge!
UPDATE NUMBER TWO.......
Thank goodness for technologists in the family. Dougal took away the sounds in the camera with no trouble at all. Now I can use it in concerts or wherever without interfering with the programme!
