The Canon and the Macro Setting
Well...ahem... still haven't read the "instruction booklet" for the Canon camera (PowerShot SX 110). Did I feel that would be disloyal to my old Sony???... oh so love my Sony..so faithful..so accurate..so dependable! I don't think I was ready for a new camera when Santa brought it. Pooh...no strap to hold it..no case..no extra memory cards..
My love affair with the Canon started tonight when I wondered about that MF icon with the flower...another total embarrassment shared!! It had Macro!!!..I really was able to dive into the depths of these beautiful flowers after having agonized about close up photographing (yes...whined a bit about it)))) sorry. Not only that...the setting had EXTRA FINE!...I think that's what the Captain is..extra fine for putting up with me and my complaining))))
So tonight..da da...first macro photographed flower...including insects))...Astrantia Major at the top of the blog! She looks wonderful although doesn't pack a punch in the garden... that's okay..she is lovely, just lovely. Then, just above, is a beautiful camouflaging spider on the blooms of our Diablo Ninebark...the Canon does bugs!! Shivers...tomorrow..roses, and pea flowers and.....okay..will stay calm))))
Back to reality! This is our garden about nine in the evening.....our "Angel Pine" looks down on us as the setting sun makes her branches glow. We think she is pretty special but she doesn't seem well this year. All trees have a life that does expire((; the captain said she would make a fine schooner mast.
