Art!

I love taking photographs, they bring back all sorts of beautiful memories. I’m a budding writer with one novel published and two in the works. I can’t paint though. I’d love to be able to. My daughter however is an Artist. She’s also an Economist and a Lawyer, not sure how they all fit together, but they do. This weekend she’s at the Spectrum Indian Wells Art Show in Coachella Valley where she’s working on a new painting as she displays her gallery.RichmondArt

BEAUTIFUL!

Trastevere – Rome

Rome is my favorite city, but its a while since I was there. I miss it, and will be back soon, but in the meantime, enjoy my memories of the Trastevere area. It was both interesting and different.

But I can’t so I use a camera instead. 

I can write though, watch out for my novel, to be released in the fall.

An upside-down cup-cake? A flying saucer? Nature is amazing.

I just can’t resist a good sunset.

 

Playing Panoramic with my new camera

DSC00062I went for a little hike today, just to play with my new toy. I have had camera’s with the ‘panoramic’ feature before, but none as easy to use, or as accurate as this.

I have to say that I am pretty impressed. I took a couple of regular shots too.

And of course, being the romantic I am, I had to play with a sunset.

This is only two days of playing with this camera, I am telling you right now, for a camera with so many features, it is magnificently simple to use. It has refreshed my love of photography and I thank Sony with all of my heart for making the DSC RX-100. I think they made if for me.
