After two years of using my digital camera, I finally took the plunge and changed the setting from automatic point & shoot, to a manual setting. I changed the shudder speed to a faster one to be able to capture action shots…and what a difference it made!!!
I’ve always been afraid that I might screw something up, so I didn’t want to mess with a good thing, but many of my pictures have often turned out blurry, especially if someone moved, while I was taking the picture. And do you know how difficult it is to get a cat to sit still, or a two year old? Well, now I don’t have to anymore.
I was looking for a new digital camera, but I’ve decided that I may not need one after all. I may just have to pull out that manual and read up on the capabilities of this one…or maybe just experiment with it and see what happens….After all, it’s not like you have to pay to have the pictures developed…you can delete what you don’t like. I really would like to have a better zoom, for those faraway shots…but I’ll guess I’ll just wait until I can find a still camera with a 20X zoom.
Here are some pictures of Daisy & Jybow that I took while they were moving.
Now don't get alarmed and get your panties all in a bunch...they're only playing. These two females really like each other and are very playful. Daisy, the white cat is teaching Jybow how to hunt for moles...not in this picture, but that's what they did today...hunt for moles together.
This is Jybow acting ferocious because of an approaching tomcat named Ferbie. Ferbie is sweet, but the females don't think so...at least not all the time.
This is Ferby who is leaving the pond disappointed again, after another failed attempt at catching a fish. If you click on the picture you can see an orange goldfish on the right.
My water plants are doing pretty well this year and the pond is finally self-sustaining and, the only intervention it needs from us, is the occasional mosquito tablet dropped into the water.
I set my camera to magnifying mode and also pushed on the little flower icon, for this shot. I like the way you can see all the little ridges on the flower petals of this climatis. You may have to enlarge the picture to see it better, that is, if blogger will let you.
